8 Reasons Why You Should Switch to Filtered Water

Whether you’re looking for an alternative to the expensive habit of buying bottled water, or you simply want to make sure that the water in your home is safe and pure, a water filtration system is the perfect solution! A whole home water filtration system is installed at the point of entry, so every part of your home can benefit from clean, pure filtered water.

It doesn’t matter whether you have municipally supplied tap water, or receive your water from a private well—a filtration system will work with both, and can be customized to address specific water issues you may be having. If you still need help deciding if this is the best option for your home, check out 8 great reasons you should make the switch to filtered water below!

1.     You’ll save money

If you’re buying bottled water instead of drinking out of the tap, the cost of all those bottles adds up quickly, even if you’re buying in bulk! A water filtration system can give your whole home better quality water at a fraction of the cost.

 

2.     Safe drinking water

Filtering the water that comes into your home gives you the ultimate control over the water you’re drinking, washing, and bathing with. You can rest easy knowing that bacteria, chemicals, and other contaminants won’t be present in your filtered water.

 

3.     Improves the taste of your drinking water

Safe and pure drinking water also means better tasting drinking water! Food and beverages prepared with filtered water will also taste better.

 

4.     It’s better for the environment

Using a filtration system instead of buying bottled water is far easier on the environment. Our landfills and our oceans are rapidly filling up with plastic, and the production and transportation of bottled water also contributes to air pollution. Switching to a water filtration system will allow you to do your part for the earth.

 

5.     You’ll need less soap & laundry detergent

The minerals present in hard water prevent soaps and detergents from working to their full potential. By filtering your water, you’re also softening it—which will help you use less soap, shampoo, and laundry detergent. This also means you’ll be buying less of these things, and saving more money!

 

6.     No more soap scum or deposits

Soft, filtered water also means you’ll no longer have to deal with soap scum and hard water deposits. This will make cleaning your bathroom and kitchen appliances much easier, and keep your clothes and dishes cleaner. Another plus? It also means better looking skin and hair.

 

7.     Longer lasting plumbing & appliances

The impurities in unfiltered water, including minerals and chemicals, can cause some major wear and tear on your plumbing and appliances. Using filtered water will help your pipes, and appliances like your dishwasher and washing machine, last longer and work more effectively.

 

8.     Disaster preparedness

Even if your tap water or well water have been tested and are deemed safe, you should always be prepared for the unexpected. Heavy rains and flooding can cause well contamination, and a burst sewer line near your home can turn your tap water from safe to toxic. A whole house water filtration system filters water at its point of entry into your home, so if the unexpected happens, your water can stay pure and safe.
