Why Water Filtration Matters

The Risks of Untreated Water

In some areas, the water supply can be especially hard, full of minerals and chemicals that you don’t want in your home. Minerals like calcium, chemicals like chlorine, and accumulated dirt and sediment can cause serious health problems and shouldn’t be ingested by your family. Not only are these contaminants bad for your health, but they’re also bad for your plumbing system. As hard water moves through your pipes, it leaves behind scale and mineral buildup that causes clogs and damages your pipes, leading to leaks and burst pipes.

Filter Out Unwanted Substances

Water filtration systems are designed to remove all those harmful minerals and sediment particles from the water your family drinks. They force your water to pass through a series of specialized filters before it reaches your fixtures, removing chemicals and particles that could harm your loved ones if ingested.

Water Filtration Systems Can Eliminate:

  • Chlorine
  • Pesticides
  • Pathogens
  • Sediment
  • And more!

Soften Hard Water to Improve Your Comfort

Showering or cleaning with hard water can leave behind a residue that damages tiles and fixtures and dries out your skin and hair. Beyond that, the hard-water stains that appear on your surfaces can damage your pipes and fixtures, causing lime build-up and hard-to-clear blockages.

In areas where the natural water supply is especially hard, effective water softening is extremely important. When the concentration of minerals and chemicals within the water is high enough, your pipes can quickly be destroyed by buildup and residue, costing you quite a bit in frequent repairs and replacements. Additionally, exceptionally hard water is just not comfortable to live with – it leads to stains on surfaces, brittle hair, dry skin, and spotty dishes.

The Benefits of Softened Water Include:

  • No more hard water stains
  • Less mineral buildup in pipes
  • You won’t need to use as much soap or detergent to clean
  • Longer-lasting fixtures
  • No more spotty or opaque dishes and glasses
  • Softer skin and cleaner hair
  • And more!
