3 Benefits of Water Filtration Systems

Reasons to Install a Whole House Water Filter This Summer 

Installing a water filtration system in the home can provide numerous benefits for residents and their families, from improving the taste of drinking water to providing healthier water quality. This article will discuss three key advantages of whole-home water filter installation.

Better Taste From the Tap 

waterWater filtration systems provide a range of benefits, but many people overlook the improved taste of drinking water. Water filtration removes substances that can cause an unpleasant smell or taste in tap water, leading to a more pleasant experience—both when it comes to drinking and cooking with it. When homeowners install a reverse osmosis water filter or another whole-house water filtration system, their water quality and taste go way up, affecting everything from a glass of water on a hot day to a refreshing lemonade.

To illustrate this point, consider coffee made with filtered water. Not only will the flavor be richer and taste better than using unfiltered tap water, but the coffee grounds won't compete against unwanted particles for flavor. The same is true of lemonade, tea, soups, stocks—any recipe that requires water as an ingredient!

Reduce the Hazards of Water 

Water from the tap often isn’t as pure as it seems. Because of modern treatment facilities, many substances and water contaminants are removed, but other impurities remain. Some of the things that whole-house water filters can remove include: 

  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Sediments
  • Pesticides
  • Chemicals

Instead of consuming these kinds of compounds every time a sip of tap water is taken, remove them from the water supply with a whole-house water filter. Plumbers can help to determine which kind of water filtration system would work best for the home, depending on the types of substances in the local water.

Reduce Grocery Costs and Plastic Use

saveTo avoid drinking tap water, many homeowners buy plastic water bottles. Even purchasing drinking water in bulk puts tons of plastics into landfills and oceans. Instead of discarding plastic bottle after bottle, take advantage of the already present water in a home with a water filtration system. Fill up a reusable cup or water bottle straight from the tap and enjoy fresh water while reducing the use of single-use plastics. 

When homeowners install water filtration systems in their homes, they reduce plastic use and can save significantly on the cost of buying bottled water. Whole-house filtration systems treat drinking water for a fraction of the cost of buying bottled water. Make water healthier, taste better, and cost less this summer by installing a water filter now!
