The Benefits of Water Filtration Systems

Why Should Homeowners Opt for a Whole House Water Filter?

When the temperatures rise, so does the need for clean and refreshing water. For many homeowners, that means stocking up on plastic water bottles to stay hydrated. However, that can have a significant impact on the environment and budget. One solution is opting for a whole-house water filter. These devices work to remove impurities so families can enjoy clean water directly from the tap. But what do homeowners need to consider before installing one? In this post, plumbing experts explain the benefits of installing water filtration systems

Clean Water Is Better Tasting Water

waterClean water is more than just about protecting families from contaminants in water. Installing a water filtration system in the home can improve the water's taste and smell. Water is an essential ingredient for just about everything – from cooking pasta to brewing a fresh cup of coffee in the morning. 

As such, one of the most noticeable benefits of a water filter is the better taste of many of these foods and drinks. Things like coffee, iced tea, lemonade, and even food the water is used to make will taste better with filtered water. Additionally, it can reduce wear and tear on appliances like the coffee maker, a win-win for all water consumption. 

Removes Contaminants for Safer Water

When it comes to drinking water, the biggest concern will always be impurities. While most homes receive a steady supply of treated water, impurities can still enter the system through the plumbing. Some of the impurities that may be affecting water in residential homes include: 

  • Metals, including lead and arsenic.
  • Chlorine or fluoride, which is often used to eliminate bacteria. 
  • Industrial waste like fertilizers or oil. 
  • Waste, like animal droppings or road debris. 

While all whole-house water filtration systems differ, many can filter out these impurities before reaching the tap. For example, a reverse osmosis water filter uses filters and pressure to push water through a filtration system that removes even the most minor debris from the water supply for safer and cleaner water. 

Water Filtration Saves Money

Although they require an initial investment for their purchase and installation, they help homeowners save in two major ways in the long run. For starters, homeowners can say goodbye to buying bottled water by having convenient access to clean water. Not only will this cut down on costs, but also it's great for the environment because plastic water bottles contribute to a significant amount of plastic waste. 

Second, some water filters can remove minerals that cause hard water and are often harmful to plumbing. This reduces the wear and tear on the plumbing and appliances like the water heater, slowing down corrosion and leading to fewer issues and repairs, saving homeowners money.
