3 Reasons Your Home Needs a Water Filtration System
Water is essential to life. But have you ever thought about all the things that are in your water?
Here in Atlanta, we assume our water supply is safe and healthy. And in most cases, it is, especially when you compare it to the close to 1 billion people on earth who do not have adequate access to clean water.
But how safe is it? Every once in awhile, a news story pops out showcasing the problems with our drinking water. They suggest using only bottled water, or boiling your water before consuming.
Our water supply goes through an intense water treatment process before it ever arrives in your home. Chemicals such as chlorine and chloramine neutralize bacteria, viruses, parasites, and other contaminants that can harm our health. Filters remove things like sediment and dirt. And what comes out of your tap is a clean supply of water.
But you can do better.
#1 Cleanest Drinking Water Possible
Not only do filtration systems clean the water supply, but they also improve the taste of your water too. Modern filtration systems use activated carbon to block the passage of unwanted materials in the water. This blocking process encourages unwanted particles in the water to release their bond with water molecules and attach to the carbon instead. The filtering system allows this process to occur again and again, leaving you with the highest quality water your home can have.
#2 Avoid Health Problems
It’s easy to reason that as your drinking water improves and becomes cleaner, damaging bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants no longer exist to cause problems with your health. These chemicals aren’t just there when you pour a glass of water from the tap. You can’t avoid it altogether just by sticking with bottled water. You’re affected by poor quality water every time you wash your dishes, brew coffee, make a pot of soup, or jump into the shower. We bring water into our bodies in many ways, all of which can have an impact on our health.
#3 Spend Less Money
Do you spend hundreds of dollars a year on bottled water? According to the US Food and Drug Administration, Americans spend over $4 billion a year on bottled water. That’s a lot of plastic ending up in landfills and increasing the size of our carbon footprint. What if you could have cleaner water directly from your tap instead?
A home water filtration system is capable of filtering out over 99 percent of all contaminants, making it cleaner in most cases than your favorite supply of bottled water. And with a one-time charge to install a filtration system, it can be the cleanest, best tasting, safest system you add to your home this year.
