Here’s What a Water Filtration System Can Remove

A water filtration system isn’t likely on your wish list for the holidays, but it should be! It’s a gift the whole family can enjoy, ensuring clean and healthy water for all.

If you didn’t already know, water out of the tap could be loaded with contaminants, including lead, fluoride, chloramines, and even arsenic. A water filtration system is your first line of defense against these impurities.

3 Reasons to Invest in a Water Filtration System

Safeguard Your Health

Your local water treatment facility makes your home’s water drinkable, but it’s still a far cry from healthy. Excess chlorine, metals, and other pollutants not only make your water taste…off, but they can also compromise your health. If you’re unsure what’s in your water supply, check the consumer confidence report that comes with your billing statement. It should outline all of the chemicals used in the treatment process and any contaminants present.

If you get your water from a well or a cistern, its quality is an even bigger unknown. You should have your water professionally tested to determine the makeup of your well water. Organic matter, such as tannins and hydrogen sulfide -- which is responsible for that rotten egg smell -- is often present in well water.

A water filtration system, such as an RO system, can be installed directly under your sink to improve your water quality before it reaches the tap.

Save Money

The average U.S. household spends about $100 on bottled water per year/per person. That means a family of four is spending $400 annually. You might be willing to write off the expense because bottled water is healthier than tap, but that’s not necessarily the case. Tap water is frequently tested to meet federal requirements -- bottled water is not. With an RO system, you can kick the bottled water habit, save money, and have confidence in your drinking water’s quality.

Improve the Taste of Your Water

While chlorine is necessary for killing bacteria, ensuring it’s safe to drink, some treatment facilities overdo it. As a result, your water can taste and smell bleach-y. A metallic taste can be due to mercury, lead, and iron in the water supply. Or, if your water tastes earthy, it could be a sign of excessive total dissolved solids. An RO system will remove anything other than pure water, ensuring it tastes clean and refreshing.
