You may think that because your water is filtered and treated before it comes into your home that you don’t really need a water filtration system. However, even if you get your water from a treatment plant, you probably have impurities and chemicals in your water. This can cause problems with drinking water as well as cleaning your body and your home. Here are three reasons to consider getting a water filtration and softening system.
Water Picks Up Impurities
Water very easily picks up bacteria and impurities as it travels from its source to the water treatment plant and again from the treatment plant to your home. Regardless of how carefully the water treatment is managed, your drinking water from your tap is not nearly as healthy as distilled or filtered water. If you drink bottled water because of this, you are spending an unreasonable amount of money on water, as well as adding to the growing problem of plastic waste.
Clear Up Skin Conditions
Hard water and water filled with impurities and chemicals can lead to problems with the skin. Certain skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema can become worse if you don’t have healthy water. Getting a whole home water filtration system with a water softener can greatly improve the condition of your skin and eliminate flare ups of skin conditions.
You will save a lot of money when you switch to a home filtration and softening system. Hard water does not allow the ionic action of soap, which reduces its cleaning power. Having a water filtration system with softeners will allow you to use less soap in the shower, in the house, and in the laundry. You will also save money by not having to buy drinking water.
