That quality of water coming into your home is essential because you drink, bathe and cook with the water from the taps. Most people believe that the water will be clean and safe after leaving the treatment plant; however, the water can contain contaminants that can be harmful to your health, skin, hair, and teeth, including:
If you’re concerned about water quality, installing a water filtration system could solve your problem.
Two types of water filtration systems will treat the water coming from the sinks, showerheads, and fixtures.
- Whole house: This type of system connects to the main water supply and filters the water from all the fixtures, including the faucets, showerheads, dishwasher, washing machine, ice maker, and a refrigerator water dispenser.
- Reverse osmosis: This system filters the water through a semi-porous, delicate membrane, and the water will be bottle water-quality.
If you aren’t sure if water filtration systems are worth the cost, you should consider the benefits.
#1 Safe Drinking Water
Water filtration systems provide safe drinking water, which is one of the best reasons to install one in your Golden Valley, AZ home. The contaminants left behind after the water leaves the treatment plant can cause health issues, such as gastrointestinal issues, dry skin and hair, and streaks or dark spots on the teeth, which are more common in children. Also, if there’s lead in the water, it can harm children and pregnant women.
Water filtration systems will filter the harmful contaminants, ensuring the water is safe for your family to drink.
#2 Great Tasting Water
Health experts recommend drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. Unfortunately, impurities in the water can affect its taste and smell, making it challenging to drink the recommended amount of water daily.
Water filtration systems will filter the impurities, ensuring the water from the taps in your Golden Valley, AZ home always tastes great.
#3 Healthy Skin and Hair
We all want healthy skin and hair, and impurities can make your hair and skin dry. Also, if a family member has a skin condition, such as eczema or psoriasis, the contaminants can worsen the condition.
Water filtration systems will filter the contaminants, ensuring your hair and skin look and feel great.
#4 Saves Money
Water filtration systems can be expensive, and the average cost of a whole house system and installation is between $1,400 and $2,100. The average price of a reverse osmosis system is between $1,000 to $4,800. Although this is a lot of money, a filtration system is more cost-effective than buying bottled water.
For example, if a family of four each drinks two bottles of water per day, you’ll need to buy 80 bottles per month. You’ll need to buy ten 24-packs of water per month, which will cost between $50 to $70 and up to $840 per year. When you compare the cost of installing a water filtration system in your Golden Valley, AZ home and the price to continue buying bottled water, the filtration system will pay for itself in the money you’ll save on bottled water within three to five years.
#5 Protect Your Clothes
The last thing you want is your favorite outfits to wear quickly, fade or bleach when you wash them. Unfortunately, water impurities can do all of these things. High levels of chlorine can thin the fabric fibers, causing them to wear out quickly and cause the colors to fade.
Fortunately, water filtration systems filter the chlorine and other impurities, ensuring your clothes look great, regardless of how often you wash them.
#6 Save Money On Soap
Soap is essential for bathing, washing the dishes, and doing laundry. If you have hard water, it contains minerals that make it challenging for the soap to create a thick lather, and you’ll need to use more to get the job done.
Water filtration systems soften the water and allow the soap to lather, and you won’t need as much, saving money on your monthly shopping costs.
#7 Better For the Environment
Bottled water isn’t good for the environment. Most communities require residents to recycle; however, not everyone does their part. Over 60 million water bottles end up in landfills daily, and it can take 450 years for them to decompose.
There’s no way of knowing how many water bottles end up in the ocean, but it’s estimated that eight to nine tons end up in the ocean every year.
If you want to go green and do your part for the environment, a water filtration system can help. When you can drink water from the tap, you won’t need bottled water and can feel good about helping the environment.
