Did you know that Americans consumed 10.9 billion gallons of bottled water in 2014? Those statistics from the Beverage Marketing Corporation seem to show a major concern with the quality of drinking water in our country. In addition to buying bottled water, many households are adding water filtration systems. But the benefits of whole house water filtration systems go far beyond purifying your drinking water.
The primary benefit of a whole house water filtration system is that all your water is purified. You may not think about it, but the water you use for cooking, bathing, and brushing your teeth can still carry contaminants. Although you’re not consuming the water in the same way as when you drink it, its quality can still make a difference in your everyday activities. For example, food cooked in unfiltered water may not taste as good. Another common thing we hear from our customers is that they’ve noticed a difference in the way their skin and hair feels. It’ll reduce the buildup of scale on your faucets, sinks, tubs, and showers, too.
There’s an unseen benefit to these systems as well. Filtered and purified water reduces the buildup of sediment that can clog up pipes. This sediment can also cause your water heater to work less efficiently.
And yes, whole home water filtration systems will reduce the need for buying bottled water. You’ll save money, free up some storage space, and reduce the amount of plastic you’re throwing away or recycling.
