When the water that comes into your home is untreated, you are exposing you and your family to several different health risks. The water quality that is supplied from those treatment facilities can vary from day to day, and without the means to determine the quality of the water, you never know if your exposed to unsafe levels of dangerous treatment chemicals. Here are just some of the health benefits of whole house water filtration systems.
Your local professional plumbing professional can help you with a filtration system that will purify all the water in your home. The most obvious area of concern is the drinking water. The water that you consume might have high levels of chlorine that can be dangerous if consumed in mass quantities. The water filtration system will filter out the majority of those contaminants and give you a better smelling and tasting water. This is the same water that you use to prepare foods like paste, which will also taste significantly better once your water is purified.
When you prepare drinks for the kids like ice tea or powered drink mixes, the water that you use from the sink could be full of particles and chemicals that the treatment facility in your community was unable to remove. Those drinks are just sugar and water, and now your children are being exposed to higher levels of contaminants than they need be. When you have a water filtration system installed in your home, the water quality improves to the point that you could literally stop buying bottled water and drink safely right from the tap.
Not too many people are even aware that when the water in the home reacts with certain dishwasher detergents, those chemicals release gas into the air your family breathes. Chlorine gas is the number one pollutant that is a result of untreated water. The water filtration system removes the chlorine from the water, making the dish washing process much safer for everyone. One added benefit is the treated water will not leave behind as much soap scum as untreated water, so your dishes will be much cleaner the next time you use them.
The reduction in that chlorine gas released into your home is something family members who suffer from asthma will notice instantly. The cleaner air will make it easier for them to breathe. The water filtration system will help all your family live a much more healthy live right under the roof of your own home.
