This piece will be discussing some of the benefits of having a water filtration system in your home. To better understand the benefits of having a system in your home, it is first important to understand the benefits of filtered water in general. If you are drinking out of an unfiltered tap, get ready for the shock of your life!
Water coming straight from the tap is full of natural pollutants. Microscopic organisms that cannot be seen by the human eye are plentiful within a single drop of unfiltered tap water. Some of these organisms and bacterium come from the source itself, while many others are picked up from your home's plumbing pipe. These microscopic little germs can cause everything, from the common cold, to many other types of unwanted infections.
It is also important to consider the types of chemicals that the water company uses in an attempt to rid the water of microscopic threats. Fluoride and many other chemicals that you do not want in your body have been used for years. Fluoride wasn't even added for the purpose of fighting bacterium; it was added in an attempt to strengthen your teeth! Do yourself a favor and get your daily fluoride from your toothpaste and not the water that you drink.
Now the largest advantage of having a filtration system in your home is not having to buy filtered water from the super market. Think of how much money the average household spends on these little plastic bottles, and then stop to think of what they are doing to the environment if they are not recycled properly. You could save hundreds of dollars a year by having your own home system. The system would likely pay for itself the first year of operation.
Another large advantage to filtering your own water at home is that you have an endless supply of it. You can use it not only for drinking, but also for cooking if you so desire. If you choose a company that is reliable for your filtration needs, you know that you are getting a respectable quality of finished product. This sure beats trusting what the bottle on the super market shelf claims!
