Why You Should Consider a Whole Home Water Filtration System

Have you ever wondered what’s in the water coming through your faucet? Do you avoid home tap water in favor of bottled? Are you concerned about heavy metals, fertilizer runoff, and pollution? If so, you’re not alone!

According to the American Association for the Advancement of Science, between the years 1982 and 2015, between nine and 45 million people each year received their drinking water from a source that violated the Safe Drinking Water Act. With our water systems aging and pollution of all types at crisis levels, more and more people are starting to seek out uncontaminated water sources for drinking, bathing, and more.

What if you could have clean, unpolluted water right out of your own tap? It is possible with a whole home water filtration system! These systems treat water as it first enters the home, ensuring that no matter where it goes, it will be free of toxins and harmful, irritating contaminants.

Water that has been treated with a whole home filtration system installed by Friend’s Plumbing is:

Safer and cleaner than untreated tap water

Our whole home water filtration systems remove potentially harmful substances from your home’s water, including:

  • Chlorine
  • Fluoride
  • Aluminum
  • Lead
  • Fertilizer
  • Pesticides

These substances can all lead to serious health problems. Contaminated water sources have been proven to lead to cancer and neurological conditions in people who unknowingly drank from them long-term. People with sensitive skin may also experience rashes and irritation from these substances in the water used to wash their clothes. Infants and the elderly are especially susceptible to the negative effects of contaminated water.

You will also notice less residue and buildup in your showers, tubs, and sinks when using a whole home water filtration system. This means you can clean these surfaces less often and with less effort!

Less expensive and more eco-friendly than bottled water

Bottled water might be cheap by the case at big box stores, but they come at a monumental cost. More than 60 million plastic single-use bottles end up in landfills or incinerators every single day. That’s over 22 billion every year.

While we understand that people need clean drinking water, there just has to be a better way than single-use plastic bottles. With a whole home water filtration system, you can have the same high-quality water that you would get in a commercially-sold bottle, for a fraction of the cost, and in whatever container you choose.
