Water is the lifeblood of our survival, but it’s also very fragile. We’ve seen water get contaminated all over the United States, and no one knows what will happen next. That’s why it’s best to take back control and install a home water treatment system.
We use water from the moment we wake up till the second our head hits our pillows. We bathe in it, drink it, and use it for cooking our food. So, we should do everything we can to keep our water clean and our families safe.
The best way to treat the water in your home is to install a water filtration system. This is the best way to get most impurities out and get rid of the minerals that create hard water. Even when the city processes your water through a treatment plant, contaminants like lead can still get through.
Treatment plants also add chemicals like chlorine and fluoride. In addition to all of that, pollution also takes a toll on your water quality. The amount of pollution in your area will directly affect the amount of pollution in your water. In high pollution areas, like parts of Florida, your water quality could suffer.
Cleaner water is a huge benefit of home water treatment, but you may not know how much water quality can affect your life.
Having better drinking water is probably the most apparent way water treatment systems can improve your life. By improving the quality of your water, you’re limiting the risk associated with water pollution. You’re protecting your family from potential hazards, which is important, especially if you have children.
The water that comes out of your shower head is the same potable water that comes out of your sink faucet, but contaminated and hard water has different effects on the exterior part of your body. Your skin is the biggest organ in your body, and it can absorb toxins.
The chlorine that is in your water supply can irritate your skin and cause dryness. Other heavy metals and chemicals can also aggravate any skin conditions like eczema, especially in your children. Not only can a water treatment system help protect your family, but it can make them more comfortable.
Yes, a home water treatment system does cost money upfront, but you will save money in the long run. These systems remove toxins, but they also remove minerals like Magnesium and Calcium. These minerals are what cause limescale buildup in your pipes and plumbing system.
Without a filtration system, minerals sink to the bottom of your water heater and attach to the walls of your pipe. The buildup prevents water from flowing properly, which causes your plumbing system to work twice as hard to provide you the water you require.
You’ll end up using more water and more power. You’ll notice the difference in your utility bills. In addition to that, the buildup of the minerals contributes to corrosion. You will need to replace your water heater and pipes a lot sooner than expected because of the buildup.
While you’ll still need to practice proper plumbing maintenance, you can save money and stress by installing a water treatment system.
Get your home water treatment system installed before you need it. Even if a water crisis never affects your area, South Florida is burdened with hard water. A water treatment system will always benefit you and your family. Call Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric today at 1-800-475-1504 to schedule an appointment.
