If you haven't gotten on board with a water filtration system, now's a good time to make the switch. Your body requires plenty of clean water to keep it healthy and strong. Unfortunately, you can't always get high-quality water from municipal sources. That's why you need a filtration system for your home. If you're still on the fence about filtering your water, here are some important reasons you should get off the fence and talk to your plumber about a residential filtration system.
Get Rid of the Impurities
Most municipal water companies sanitize the water before they send it off to their residential customers. Unfortunately, they sanitize it with high concentrations of chlorine, which is the same stuff that's used to sanitize your swimming pool. That's actually why your water usually smells like chlorine when it comes out of the tap. You wouldn't want to drink your swimming pool water, so you shouldn't drink the same stuff that comes out of your faucet. A home filtration system will filter out the excess chlorine, as well as any other impurities that are in the water. It will also filter out the lead that might be present in municipal drinking water. This is particularly beneficial if you have small children, or babies who are drinking formula.
Provide Better Quality Water
There's nothing worse than filling your glass with tap water, only to find out that it has an awful taste. Unfortunately, many municipal water companies provide poor-quality water that either has a bad taste, bad odor, or both. You might even end up with water that's so clouded with sediment that it looks like you're drinking salt water. When you install a filtration system for your drinking water, you'll no longer need to deal with the poor-quality water you've grown used to.
Reduce Your Recycling Waste
If you gave up on your water company and switched to bottled water, you've probably got quite a bit of recycling. Not only do those plastic bottles take up a lot of space in your trash can, but they can take quite a chunk out of your budget, especially if everyone in your family is drinking the bottled water. Don't spend your hard-earned money on bottled water, and don't collect plastic water bottles that you'll never take to the recycling center. Invest in a residential water filtration system. You and your family will enjoy clean, good tasting water, without the expense of store-bought bottled water.
