IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF WATER IN YOUR HOME
With a water filtration system, you can have access at all times to fresh, clean water straight from the tap. Your hair and skin will be less exposed to contaminates when showering that can aggravate health conditions. There are many reasons that make whole house water filtration a worthy investment for any home.
WHY WHOLE HOUSE FILTRATION?
Water contaminants come in many forms and can cause a number of issues with your health or the health of your home. Even after water passes through a water treatment facility, there are many contaminants that the water can pick up along the way to your faucet. Other than affecting your health, these contaminants can also damage your home’s plumbing as well as any appliances that use water.
The average person today drinks chlorine-treated water that may still contain harmful bacteria, chemicals, and various other contaminants. Our bodies are made up of over 70% water, and having access to clean water everyday is necessary for your health to thrive.
MOST COMMON FILTER TYPES
Activated Carbon: This is the least expensive type of water filter and subsequently one of the most common types. Activated carbon filtration is known for effectively removing parasites, heavy metals, and chemicals from water.
Ion Exchange: This is the same as a water softener system. In this system, positively-charged sodium ions are used to replace the harmful, negatively-charged ions in minerals like magnesium and calcium. Magnesium and calcium in this form can be damaging for health as well as damaging to your home’s water pipes.
Reverse osmosis: Reverse osmosis, or distillation, is often considered the most effective type of water filtration. It is a process that uses air pressure to pass water through a semi-permeable membrane. The reverse osmosis process can happen through 5, 6, or 7 stages and are even able to produce alkaline water.
