10 Reasons to Install a Water Filtration System

The sheer amount of benefits that home water filtration systems offer to a family are astronomical. There are a plethora of benefits to getting your own water filtration system installed.

Here are just ten of them:

Increases Air QualityWater Filter

The last thing one might expect water filtration to affect would be the quality of your air, but it's true. Water filters take chlorine out of a household's water, which in turn prevents it from being released into the air. In its gaseous form, chlorine is very poisonous. It was even used as a chemical weapon during World War I. The more chlorine you can filter out of your water, the better off you'll be.

Increases the Durability of Your Clothing

Purging harmful chemicals is not only good for the quality of one's air, but also for the quality of their clothing. When a washing machine is run with impure water, those impurities can damage your clothing. Chemicals, such as chlorine, as well as harmful metals can warp clothing much quicker than it would have otherwise using purified water.

Increases Dishwasher Quality

Impure water can also have an adverse effect while running your dishwasher. The impurities of water can lead to soap scum on dishes. Sometimes, the resulting filth can be so bad that a dishwasher has to be run for a second time, leading to a higher utility bill.

Not only that, but your dishwasher also releases steam into the air. If that air is tainted with harmful chemicals (such as chlorine, mentioned above), you could be poisoning the air in your house as well as your dishes.

Increases the Health of Drinking Water

This is likely the first thing people think of when they think of the benefits of water filter installation. However, the water crisis in Flint, MI just goes to show that the quality of one's drinking water has been compromised now more than ever.

Local governments always try to pinch pennies by cutting corners on their water filtration, and the harmful byproducts of that wind up in your taps. It's better to take water filtration out of the government's hands and into your own private water filtration system.

Decrease the Quantity of Allergens

As has previously been stated, whole home water filtration increases the quality of air in the household. This benefit can also decrease one's exposure to allergens and lead to better breathing and an overall better quality of life. This benefit also extends to asthmatics. Cleaner air means fewer asthma attacks, and fewer asthma attacks leads to a higher quality of life overall.

Decreases the Risk of Showering in Contaminated Water

Metals and other impurities in water can pass through the skin and enter your bloodstream, especially if you have any open cuts or scrapes. The health effects of metals entering your bloodstream are too numerous to recap here; suffice to say, it's something one should do everything in their power to avoid. Impure water can also damage water and skin, accelerating the aging process.

Decreases the Amount of Shower Corrosion

Showering in contaminated water doesn't get effect the person standing under the shower head, but it also effects the shower head itself. Unfiltered water can damage and rust shower heads, as well as the water pipes. It can also do damage to your shower curtain, your tub, and any grout that you may have in your bathroom. The cost of repairing these things can break a household budget.

It's better to invest in water filter installation now, rather than having to pay a larger sum down the road.

Decreases CarcinogensWoman filling water cup

This was alluded to in the section about showering and air quality, but it's worth stating bluntly.

Without proper water filtration, the amount of carcinogens that one would be exposed to on a daily basis is much greater than it would be with proper water filtration. As recently as 2010, an unhealthy percentage of carcinogens were found in the tap water of 31 major U.S. cities out of 35 tested. That is an astronomical 89% of cities tested.

The odds are too high for Murrieta homeowners to entrust the state of their home water without in-home water filtration.

Last Line of Defense

Not only can city governments be negligent about filtering water, but their systems of water filtration can also break down. If they break down, there's no guarantee that anybody would notice immediately. The water quality in Flint was atrocious for months before anybody in a position of power identified a problem.

An in-home water filtration system is the necessary last line of defense against a potential breakdown in a municipality's water filtration system.

Improves Overall Quality of Life

When pure water comes from every avenue of your house, the overall quality of one's life improves. Your home uses water more frequently than you likely realize going through you day to day life.

Your Murrieta home deserves the highest quality of water possible, which can only be ensured with the use of a home water filtration system.
