Fresh, clean water is a basic necessity for everyone, and a water treatment system can help ensure that you always have access to usable water.
Let’s take a look at the top four benefits of having a treatment system in place for your water.
The Safest Drinking Water
Your drinking water probably comes from a water treatment source, likely through your county or city, which follow both federal and local regulations for safety. While this is a great starting point for safe, drinkable water, unfortunately contamination does happen. When testing reveals the presence of harmful bacteria such as E. coli, a boil order may be issued to prevent serious illness from consuming the water.
On a daily basis, it is common for many water treatment facilities to add some chemicals to the water, such as fluoride and chlorine. The jury is still out on how safe this practice is, and these additions have raised some health concerns. Installing a water treatment system in your home is one of the easiest ways to bypass all of these issues, and make sure you have clean, pure water to drink.
Protecting Our Environment
Some people might balk at the price of installing a treatment system for the water in their home. But before you write off this investment as unattainable, consider the long term savings. Many people are in the habit of purchasing and consuming bottled water in large quantities. The monetary price is relatively low, and it is convenient, but most of those empty water bottles end up in landfills. This is a huge threat to the environment, as it takes hundreds of years for these bottles to break down. You can do your part to help the environment by using reusable water bottles filled with clean water from your home treatment system.
It makes sense that consuming water directly affects our health, but remember that the water we use to bathe or shower in has an effect on our bodies as well. Skin is the largest organ of our body, and it readily absorbs possible contaminants. Common water additions like chlorine can cause irritation and dryness. Using a water filtration system helps to provide gentler water to care for your body.
Long Term Cost Savings
A water treatment system for your home is an upfront cost that will create savings for years to come. Besides the obvious reduction in cost for clean water, you’ll also see savings in the form of longer lasting appliances and plumbing. Hard water deposits, sediments, and other impurities can greatly shorten the lifespan of both your pipes and your appliances, causing costly repairs or replacements. With a treatment system in place, you can both extend the life and improve the function of your plumbing and appliances.
