Drinking water is one of the significant issues of our day. Most agree the tap water isn’t suitable for drinking though there are those that will disagree. According to the State Water Resources Control Board, nearly one million people in California have unsafe drinking water and are advised not to drink tap water. Many of us use bottled water when we’re on the run, which wreaks havoc on the environment. On the other hand, there are those that over time have evolved into using a thermos or water bottle that we fill up before we leave home. Some of us have those refillable 5-gallon bottles and carry them to and from the home, and some have them delivered to the home. Whatever category you fall in, we will look at the pros and cons of a whole house water filtration system.
Most Systems Require Very Little Maintenance
There are many options when it comes to water filtration systems. Some homes have small systems under their sink. These kinds of systems work fine for the kitchen area but let’s focus on the whole house filtration systems. Like everything else, technology has driven filtration systems to another level. A whole house water filtration system is capable of removing any kind of water contaminants from our drinking water. Most systems are usually easy to install and tie directly into our main water line before entering our home. Once installed, the latest systems can provide years of service with very little maintenance.
Keep Your Family Safe And Healthy With A Water Filtration System
The main reason for a whole house filtration system is for optimal health for the family. I think we can all agree that keeping hydrated with quality drinking water is priority one. Think about the peace of mind you will have to know that contaminant-free drinking water, as well as bathing water, is coming from every faucet of your home. We don’t realize the impact the water system can have, aside from drinking. It has a positive effect on our bathing, laundry, and pet care. And just think, no more lugging 5-gallon bottles to and from the house. Similarly, no more excess plastic bottles to cause harm to our environment.
What Does A Whole House Water System Eliminate?
The Enviro water filtration system eliminates 97% of chlorine. While good for cleaning pools, it should not be in our drinking water for consumption. Children can have health issues with chlorine, sensitive to the effects of it causing nasal & throat irritation, sneezing or mild cough. For years fluoride was added to our water, and it’s only now that we’re learning about the long term effects it may have on us.
What Can A Water Filtration System Remove:
- Heavy Metals
- Coliform and e-Coli and More
Owning A System Is A No-Brainer
The only setback of owning a water filtration is cost. Depending on the system you choose to purchase, expect to pay around the same price of a water heater.
