We all know that cleaner water is better water— but do you know just how much better? A water filter helps your health, your home, and your wallet, making it a home essential that we stand by. Wondering how filtered water can make your life easier? We’ve got 10 surprising benefits that you might not know about.
Water filters are one of the most useful installations you can get for your home. The water we use every day needs to be clean from impurities, both for safe drinking and for your home’s plumbing system.
We need to drink a lot of water to keep ourselves healthy—and there’s nothing worse than drinking water that doesn’t even taste good. Filtered water removes impurities and the bad “tap water” taste, leaving you with a glass of water you’ll be able to enjoy.
Limescale is what happens when water hardness is too high. It causes a buildup in appliances and plumbing systems and can be difficult to get rid of. Limescale and affect the taste of water from appliances and can clog shower heads and drains.
The smell of food and drink greatly changes the taste. Your water shouldn’t have a bad odor to it, especially if you’re drinking, cooking, or cleaning with it! Water filters help to remove the bacteria and sulfates that cause foul smells.
Just as we’re careful about what products we put on our skin, we should be careful about the quality of water we use. Unfiltered water makes skincare products less effective, and in some scenarios can cause itchiness, dryness, and irritation.
While boiling water isn’t useless, it’s not as foolproof as it used to be. Chemicals used in water treatment systems can require an extra filter before they’re suitable for food preparation, especially if you’re concerned about odd tastes.
City water filtration systems use chlorine to purify water. While this is essential to make sure you’re receiving safe drinking water, an at-home filtration system can be your second line of defense if there’s too much chlorine in your home’s water.
Let’s face it, bottled water is expensive. Americans use roughly 50 billion water bottles per year, which is about 13 bottles per person per month. While buying a bottle of water here or there may not seem expensive, the costs add up quickly. Skip the plastic bottles, and drink quality water straight from the tap.
By cutting out bottled water, you’re also helping the environment by reducing plastic waste. A reusable water bottle cuts down on the amount of water and oil needed to mass produce bottled water, making at-home filtration systems friendly to your wallet and environment.
Like our skin, our hair soaks up water when we wash it. To avoid dryness and to be able to get the most out of your hair care products, you need clean water. Hard or chemical-filled water makes it more difficult for shampoos and soaps to lather, making good products ineffective.
Like with shampoos, dish soap can struggle to foam with bad water quality. This results in an unpleasant residue on dishes and can make kitchen trays and cutlery much harder to clean.

Not every homeowner is going to face the same water issues, either. We have multiple water filtration solutions depending on what needs improvement, and we’re here to help you every step of the way.
