Four Simple Reasons To Say "Yes" To A Home Water Filtration System

Even though municipal tap water is cleaned to certain standards, it can still contain minerals, bacteria, and other unwanted material that it picks up as it travels through pipes and into your home. To ensure your water is as clean and safe as possible, it's a good idea to install a whole-home water filtration system that cleans the water as it enters your home and before it emerges from your faucets. Here's a look at six great reasons to have a filtration system installed.

You won't have to buy bottled water.

Many people spend countless dollars on bottled water each year because they trust it to be cleaner than the water that comes out of the tap. With a whole-home water filtration system, you can just refill a reusable bottle and be sure that your tap water is clean, safe, and tasty. This could save you hundreds of dollars per year and also reduce the waste you produce since you won't be throwing away countless plastic bottles.

Your skin will be healthier.

Those minerals and bacteria in your water are not just bad for you if you ingest them. The can make your skin feel lifeless and even perpetuate breakouts. With filtered water, you minimize your skin's exposure to these unwanted particles. You may be able to use less lotion, become less reliant on cosmetics, and enjoy all-around healthier, more glowing skin.

Your cooking will improve.

When you cook, the flavors in your water are passed into your food. If the water tastes a bit sulfur-like, for example, so will the pasta or veggies that you cook in it. You might be so used to these flavors that you don't really notice them, but once you cook with filtered water, the difference will be apparent. Without the flavors in less-clean water, the flavors you really want in your food will shine through more readily.

Appliances will stay cleaner.

Appliances that use water – such as your washer and coffee maker – can suffer if you're continually running mineral-laden water through them. They may accumulate mineral deposits, leading to premature breakdowns and malfunctions. With filtered water, the appliances will keep running for longer, minimizing your need to repair and replace them.

The average whole-home water filtration system costs about $1,600. However, this will be money well spent as you'll enjoy the benefits above. Talk to your local plumbing contractor and schedule an in-home consultation to learn more.
