Over 60 million Americans currently have unsafe drinking water in their homes. Clean water is vital to your health and wellbeing. Water, like oxygen, is crucial to maintaining life. Considering how much water is on the earth, it’s surprising that only a small percentage of that water is actually safe to drink. Even though the water that comes from your tap passes through a water treatment facility, it may not be as safe as you think. Here are some of the benefits of having a home water filtration system.

Avoid Contaminants 

It’s important to make sure your water is free from any contaminants. There are many types of biological, chemical, and environmental contaminants in our water. Biological pathogens in water can include e.coli and norovirus. Chemicals like lead, nitrates, as well as runoff from pesticides, can be found in water. Metal poisoning is also a big problem, especially in rural areas. The further your water travels, the more likely it is to pick up these contaminants along the way. These can be harmful to you and your family and cause you to get sick or even get cancer if the water is not treated properly.

Save On Soap                           

A home water filtration system acts as a water softener. Hard water has certain minerals that prevent the ionic action of soap. Soft water, on the other hand, maximizes soap’s cleaning power, allowing your clothes, dishes, and body to get cleaner, faster.  A home water filtration system will save you money by utilizing soft water so that you don’t have to spend as much on dish soap, shower essentials, and laundry detergent.

Reduce Plumbing Problems

Plumbing repair bills can be costly, and installing a home water filtration system can reduce these costs. Contaminants in unfiltered water such as metals and chemicals can cause wear and tear to your plumbing system that can result in expensive damage. While this could severely affect the pipes themselves, it could also affect multiple other home appliances that utilize water. This includes things like the washing machine, dishwasher, ice maker, garbage disposal, and refrigerator.

Improve The Taste Of Your Water

This may seem like an obvious reason to get a home water filtration system. Water is such a vital element in your life. The cleaner it is, the better it tastes. Not only will your drinking water tastes better, but teas, coffee, and other drinks made with water will have an improved taste as well. Additionally,  any food washed or prepared with water will taste better, too.

Better For The Environment 

If you’re worried about the cost of a home filtration system but have gotten into a habit of buying bottled water, you would be happy to know that a home filtration system is significantly cheaper than the cost of consistently buying bottled water. Plastic water bottles can take hundreds of years to break down and cause a huge problem for our environment. During the breakdown process, plastic water bottles can produce harmful toxins that seep into the soil and make it into the water. When you get a home water filtration system, you will be doing your part to reduce your environmental footprint.
