On the whole, drinking water in the United States is safe. However, many people choose to take extra steps to guarantee that the water they consume is as pure as possible. That's why sales of bottled water continue to rise. It's also why residential water treatment is a $2 billion industry. One particular method of residential water treatment, whole house water filtration, is becoming more and more popular.
Whole house water filtration purifies water throughout your home. Rather than using filters in a pitcher, on your faucet, or in your refrigerator, a whole house system purifies the water as it comes into your house. It then sends it throughout your home for a variety of uses.
You may think a system like this is unnecessary for your home. However, there are many surprising benefits that come with using a whole house water filtration system. Here are three of the most important ones:
It will save you money. Consider the cost of replacing all the water filters you have in your home. If you follow the manufacturers' recommendations, these costs can really add up over time. Using a whole home system instead will save you money over time. You'll also save since you'll be buying fewer bottles of water at the store.
It will save your appliances. No matter how clean you think your water is, bits of sediment and minerals still come in through your pipes. As the years go by, these materials can build up in pipes and any appliances that use water. Water heaters are particularly susceptible to this type of buildup. Whole home water filtration systems will deliver only the cleanest, purest water to your washer, refrigerator, dishwasher, coffee maker, and water heater.
It will improve your quality of life. Water quality affects many everyday things in ways you may not be aware of. Your skin and hair will be softer. Your food will taste better, as will the water you drink. Many homeowners who are sensitive to chlorine report fewer problems after they start using a water filtration system. Headaches, red eyes, and other irritations may be reduced.
These are just a few of the benefits of whole house water filtration systems. For sales and installation of these systems in the Beaufort, Walterboro, Hilton Head Island, and Charleston, SC areas, call Pinckney Well Drilling and Geothermal.
