Research has shown that an average person consumes about 106 000 litres of water a year. This highlights the necessity of filtering your water at home. One’s quality of water affects one’s health and well-being, especially when you consider how much of it gets consumed in a year. Here are some benefits to installing a water filtration system in our home.
REMOVES WATER CONTAMINANTS
Researchers have found that there are over 2100 water contaminants in our tap water. The only way to ensure that our water is free from any contamination is to install a water filtration system.
REDUCE HEALTH RISKS
A water filtration system doesn’t just eliminate contaminants from water but also chlorine and other harmful bacteria commonly found in water. This removal helps eliminate water related medical conditions such as bladder cancer, colorectal cancer, colon cancer and other intestinal and digestive problems.
ADDED HEALTH BENEFITS
Healthy water is vital for the health of every cell and organ in the body. Clean water prevents dehydration, improves health and fitness and keeps one’s skin healthy. A constant intake of clean water also helps children develop a healthy immune system. Children have also been known to get psoriasis and eczema from drinking unfiltered tap water in some cases.
EFFICIENCY COST EFFECTIVE
A filtration system installed at home means that you have healthy drinking water on top. You don’t get more efficient than that. It is also cheaper to filter your own drinking water than to buy 106 000 litres of bottled filter water a year. Most water filtration systems are also designed to be passive, which means that there are no hidden costs. Once installed, they usually only require the filters to be cleaned occasionally.
BETTER TASTE. BETTER SMELL
Filtered water eliminates the bad smell and taste of regular tap water by removing the lead, chlorine and bacteria found in tap water.
The chemicals in unclean tap water will leave a deposit on one’s clothes, which will cause them to smell differently and can even cause allergies and rashes.
REDUCE PLUMBING REPAIR BILLS
Plumbing repairs can be reduced substantially when you use filtered water because the heavy metals, minerals and chemicals that cause damage to your plumbing systems are removed. Appliances using water also last longer as there is only clean water running through them.
Install a home filtration system to take advantage of all the health benefits and the savings on various home plumbing systems.
