For most people, the contents of our drinking water have long been a distant afterthought within our everyday lives. After all, the vast majority of us grew up drinking water directly from the tap without ever thinking twice about it.
However, despite the fact that unfiltered tap water typically passes through a water treatment facility, it can still often pick up contaminants that can be harmful to you and your family – not to mention your utility bills. And the farther your water has to travel to reach your home, the more likely it is to pick up contaminants along the way. Many households today still consume chlorine-treated water directly from the tap without considering the risks associated with doing so.
Thankfully, it’s now easier than ever to ensure you have access to clean, filtered water in your home that tastes better, performs better, and helps your family live better lives.
Here are four of the main reasons your household can benefit from the installation of a home water filtration system.
Filtered water is cleaner
Unfiltered water can contain a wide range of bacteria, contaminants, and hard minerals that can be damaging to your body and to your household items. Undergoing an in-home water test is the best way to learn more about what’s really in your water.
A home water filtration system – in conjunction with a water softener – is one of the easiest and most effective ways to improve the quality of your water. In tandem, these two act to eliminate hard minerals from your water and can help you enjoy cleaner dishes, more vibrant clothing, softer skin and hair, and a reduced energy bill.
Here’s a bit more about all the ways a water softener can benefit your home.
Filtered water tastes better
Because of the contaminants contained within unfiltered water, it’s not uncommon for it to have an unpleasant taste and odor – both of which become even more evident once you begin drinking crisp, delicious filtered water.
Purchasing a home water filtration system is both an investment in your family’s health and in a more enjoyable water drinking experience.
Filtered water is better for you
Because unfiltered water contains unwanted substances, it can also take a long-term toll on your body inside and out. Apart from being bad for your health, contaminated water can be harmful to your skin and can cause irritation to your eyes. This is a particular concern for those with skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.
A house water filter removes contaminants from your water that include lead, chlorine, iron, and a host of other hard minerals. This makes your water safer to consume, bathe with, and use in household chores like cooking. And when your water is cleaner and better-tasting, it’s also easier to drink more of it, providing better all-day hydration for you and your family.
Filtered water saves you money
Some households with unfiltered water are forced to spend money on bottled water for drinking, which not only hurts your bank account but also has a negative impact on the environment.
In addition to cutting down on bottled water costs and waste, a water filter for your home also prolongs the life of your appliances like dishwashers and washing machines by making them more efficient and by slowing the toll of rust or corrosion. This also benefits your home’s plumbing system and makes it easier for water to flow throughout your house, reducing the monthly amount spent on water and energy bills.
Improve the quality of life in your household with a home water filtration system
From a more enjoyable taste and improved health benefits to brighter colors in the laundry and softer skin, installing a house water filter is one of the easiest ways to create a better living environment for you and everyone in your home.
Culligan Water filtration systems utilize the process of reverse osmosis (RO) to efficiently eliminate contaminants and reduce impurities in your water. Reverse osmosis is widely considered to be the most effective form of water filtration. During the process, water moves through a semi-permeable membrane that traps and removes unwanted particles like lead and sodium from your water. This leaves your water tasting great and functioning perfectly as it flows throughout your life.
You may be concerned with having a bulky, unsightly water system installed in your home, but rest assured – Culligan Water’s space-saving filters feature designer faucets that look great and easily mount to your kitchen sink. There are no giant tanks or reservoirs to worry about. We offer both rental and purchase options for our filtration systems to help provide the solution that best serves your home in either the short or long term.
