When it comes to you and your family’s health, pure, clean water is essential. This does not only mean the water you drink, but also the water you use for cooking food, washing dishes and bathing. Although it is simple to ensure you have pure water for consumption, too many households must use less than ideal water for other activities. A whole home water filtration system will change that.
Better Health Means Less Chlorine
Many water treatment plants add chlorine to water. Although chlorine does eliminate many of the microscopic health hazards which can exist in a water supply, breathing, drinking and coming in contact with chlorine can cause certain health problems such as sore throats, dry skin and coughing. Whenever you wash your clothes in chlorinated water, chlorine residue remains in the fabric and can cause health concerns even when you are not at home.
Better Water Is Safer Water
Look at the water in your home under a microscope and you may be shocked. In many parts of the country, water may contain contaminants such bacteria and chemical waste. Bacteria like E. coli and fecal coliforms can make you and your family seriously ill. Health experts can link some chemicals found in drinking water to the possible development of certain types of cancers.
Better Skin and Hair for a Healthy Appearance
Many areas of the country have hard water. Hard water is water which has more dissolved minerals in it than soft water. When you wash your skin and hair, these dissolved minerals are often left behind causing a build-up which may lead you or your family members to have dull, itchy or dry hair and skin. Hard water can also inhibit the foaming aspects of soaps and shampoos which prevent the user from getting the full benefits of these products.
Cleaner Air for You and Your Family
Besides chlorine, your home’s water may have many other chemical particles. Whenever these particles are released into the air through steam, whether it is during a hot shower or when you are using the dishwasher, you are exposed to these potentially harmful particles, some of which can have a tremendous effect on your respiratory system.
Better Tasting Water Means You’ll Drink More of It
Admit it. You are trying to reduce the amount of sugary and caffeinated beverages that you and your family drink. Water makes a great, healthy substitute, but only if everyone in your family will actually drink it. That is why it is important that it tastes good. A whole home filtration system will get rid of any additives or impurities in your water which may impart an off-flavor.
