Why you need a whole house water filtration system

Water from a Whole House Water Filtration System

Seeing that we depend on our water system to aid us in cooking, cleaning, bathing, the functionality of our water heaters, and most importantly, to nourish our bodies, it’s safe to say that we should want it to be as clean as possible. 

Having a whole house filtration system installed is great for several reasons. It can improve the life of your water heater, which can save tons of money upfront, and it can also be beneficial to your overall health. In this article, we aim to break down what a whole house water filtration system is, what it can provide, and the possible downsides to not having one.

 

What is a whole house water filtration system?


A whole house water filtration system is essentially a tool installed where the main water supply enters your home. It then filters your entire water supply, including your taps, appliances, and water heater. It functions to remove any contaminants from your water supply entirely. When you really stop to think about how important it is to have clean water, a whole house water filtration system becomes a necessity pretty quick. Once you have one installed, they generally last years before needing to be replaced. They also require very little maintenance, which should make you and your pockets happy! 

 

What can a whole house water filtration system provide?


One of the main things a water filtration system can supply is peace of mind.
You will be able to rest easy, knowing that outside contaminants won’t find their way into your body or appliances.

Along with a peace of mind, a whole house filtration system is also a one-stop shop. Installing filters throughout your home can become tedious and expensive in the long haul. By having an entire house system installed, you skip the extra labor, the extra maintenance, and you, in turn, save a good bit of cash. 

 

The possible downsides to drinking unfiltered water


If you don’t have a water filtration system, you risk harsh minerals and chemicals possibly invading your home and health. One of the more dangerous contaminants sometimes found in our water supply is
chlorine. In some households, the level of chlorine found in the water supply was similar to the amount of chlorine found in swimming pools. This can be detrimental to a person’s health over time. 

Other chemicals and minerals that are often found in unfiltered water are lead, aluminum, and even pesticides. Installing a whole house water filtration system removes the worry and fear that any of these substances will affect you or your loved ones. 

 

The takeaway


In conclusion, we can all agree that drinking and using clean water is the healthiest and safest solution. The primary focus of a water filtration system is to remove harsh toxins and chemicals from your water supply. This system benefits your health and your household appliances while saving you money in the long run. You can sleep easy, knowing that you are using clean water to bathe, cook, and clean with, and that your appliances will last longer.
