Benefits Of Having A Water Filtration System In Your Home
Worried about the quality of your water?
Are you interested in buying a home water filtration system, or are you thinking of replacing the one you already have? There are so many benefits of filtering your drinking water in terms of health, savings, and environmental concerns. Let’s have a close look at few of them.
Healthy drinking water: With a water filter, you won’t have to worry about the quality of water you are drinking because you will have complete control. Maybe you’ve tested the water being supplied to your house and have identified the exact contamination issue in it helping you to buy the best and the most efficient filtration system.
Savings: You can save huge amounts of money when you filer your drinking water. For example, a replacement filter can last for a year providing 3,000 liters of filtered water. This will save you money on the rental water or packs of filtered water. Using a reusable water bottle, you can carry your filtered water to office, gym, hiking, or biking. You not only save money, but also help the environment.
Water hardness: You can resolve the issue of hard water. It might not be unhealthy to drink, but it is bad for your bath tub, plumbing system, and appliances.
Bacteria re-growth: With municipal water, there is chance of contamination as treated water travels through the distribution pipes. You can eliminate that issue by using a water filtration system.
Handling emergencies: You cannot envisage when your city or town will issue a water advisor for any kind of water issues. Oil spills, pipe breaks, earthquakes, sewage spills, storms, or hurricanes that overwhelm most of the treatment plants may result in drinking water contamination. During these times, bottled water companies benefit the most as they sell more water and your wallet is depleted during these emergencies.
Cancer-causing chemicals: Most drinking water contains DBPs (disinfection byproducts). Excessive residual chlorine in the finished water may lead to the formation of DBPs such as bromoform, TTHMs or THMs, Dibromochloromethane and Bromodichloromethane. EPA listed liver, cancer, kidney, developmental and reproductive issues in the humans as some health problems that may result from DBPs.
With so many benefits, you should consider investing in a good home water filtration system. You can get maximum benefits by choosing a filtration unit that has been tested and certified by the third party organizations for reduction of various harmful chemicals.
