Health Benefits of Whole House Water Filtration
Every day, homeowners who think they are protecting their families in using only filtered water are exposing their loved ones to unintended risks. The reason for this lies in the fact that they are only filtering one water source in the home, allowing traditional tap water to interrupt their family’s daily life. Installing a whole house water filtration system benefits your family in many healthy ways.
Unfiltered water is hard water that gets in your family’s hair, on their skin, and inside their bellies. Just because your kitchen sink has filtered water doesn’t mean that the entire house is free of chlorine and hard water buildup. Unless you have a filter installed in your whole house, your family is still brushing their teeth, washing their clothes, and showering in the very water you don’t want them drinking.
Hard water is irritating to the body, but it’s mainly the chlorine that causes health concerns. Chlorine is irritating to the skin, and in large amounts causes damage to hard surfaces in your home when you clean or cook with it. If it can damage your counter tops and leave residue on your dishes, imagine what it is doing to your body?
Installing a whole house water filtration system is the best way to protect young children and people with sensitive immune systems. Since the chlorine in the air can irritate people with sensitive systems, like the very elderly or asthmatic people, eliminating poor air quality by providing cleaner water is a great way to add better health to the home.
Simply installing a whole house water filtration system to your home is healthy for your family and your plumbing. Hard water is unable to damage your pipes and surfaces of your home, and chlorine being filtered out is unable to make your family sick and irritated. Since protecting your family is always a concern, it’s important to make sure that when you choose filtered water, you choose to filter the water in your entire home not just the most common areas. This way, you have safe water everywhere you turn in your home, and your family is safer and healthier every day.
