5 Reasons to Have a Water Filtration System

5 Reasons to Have a Water Filtration System | HP Mechanical

Clean water is very important to your health for drinking, showering and cooking. Many people today drink chlorine-treated water that still contains many harmful bacteria, chemicals and other contaminants. Water, like oxygen is crucial to maintaining life. Every person needs to have enough water each day for the body to function effectively, since over 70 percent of the human body is made up of water.

Filtering your water removes bacteria, heavy metals and chemicals from the water. Since most people can't test their water regularly, the safest and simplest solution is to use filtered water by investing in an advanced home water filtration system.

At HP Mechanical, we are sharing this information with you, so that you can make educated decisions about acquiring one. There is a lot to choose from, including activated carbon, cation exchange water filter systems and reverse osmosis systems, just to name a few.

Whatever type of home water filtration system you choose, take a look at the benefits you will get from filtering your water.

Have safer drinking water anytime. When you filter your water, you can rest assured that you have healthy drinking water, compared to the bottled water and tap water that comes directly from the water treatment plants in your municipality. Unfiltered water, even if it has come from the water treatment plant, still has contaminants such as lead. Water treatment plants add chemicals such as fluoride and chlorine to the water as their treatment method. When you have an advanced home water filtration system, these chemicals, other impurities and most of the 2,100 known toxins in drinking water are removed.

Protect the environment. There were 50 billion plastic water bottles bought in the United States last year. However, only 38% were recycled, with the remainder ending up in landfills. With a home water filtration system, you will not be adding more rubbish into landfills. On the average, it will take 450 years for plastic bottles to disintegrate.

Minimize aggravation of skin conditions. Substances such as heavy metals, fluoride and chlorine in the water can aggravate skin conditions. This includes psoriasis and eczema, especially in children.

Cost Savings. If you are currently buying bottled water, you’ll realize a big savings from installing a water filter at home. If there are four members in your household and each of you drink three 16.9 ounce bottles of water each day, you’ll be able to save a minimum of $700 annually. This assumes you buy an average priced 24 pack of water bottles at a cost around $5.00. If you install a reverse osmosis home water filtration system, it only costs between $300 and $500. A new filter is required annually at an average cost of $50-80.

Reduce plumbing repair bills. You can reduce plumbing repairs, and cut your repair bills when you use filtered water. Heavy metals, minerals and chemicals in unfiltered water can cause damage to your plumbing system. It is not only the pipes that could be affected but also other home appliances that use water. This includes your water dispenser, refrigerator ice maker, garbage disposal, dishwasher and washing machine.
