Is your tap water leaving behind residue? Have you noticed the water’s quality or taste is going down the drain? Maybe it’s time for an update! Installing a filtration system can make a considerable difference in water quality and the overall condition of your home’s plumbing. Plus, it’s beneficial to your family’s health, since it removes potentially harmful contaminants.
In addition to improving quality, one of the many advantages of a water filtration system is that it can prevent skin irritation. Sensitive skin and certain skin conditions may worsen from chlorine and other contaminants in the water. With filtered water, you can avoid the inflammation and itchiness from such impurities.
Filtered water could also save you money on soap. When water has a high concentration of minerals, it can diminish the effectiveness of soap and other household cleaners. A water filtration system counteracts this by removing excessive minerals. The result is softer skin, cleaner clothes and sparkling dishes.
Before upgrading your system, there are a few pointers to follow first. For starters, it’s recommended to opt for a whole-house water filter system. Second, it’s important to install the system before the water heater. That way, it draws from the cold-water line as it’s been designed to do, and not from the heated water. Another tip is to consult a professional when searching for the best match for your home. These systems have varying requirements and fittings, so this step is best left to an expert.
