Top 8 benefits of installing a water filtration system in your home

Whether we are using it in the shower, to cook food or just for a refreshing drink, clean water is something many of us simply take for granted as we access it from the tap. But while the water might look crystal clear, just how clean is it? Tap water is often chemically treated, which some might consider to be a health issue, while bacteria and other harmful contaminants can still make their way back into the water between leaving the treatment facility and coming out of the kitchen tap. It is one of the many reasons why more property owners are opting to install a water filtration system in their homes; to actually enjoy crystal clear water without any of the impurities, heavy metals and chemicals often found in tap water. Here are eight key benefits to installing a water filtration system in your home.

1 Healthier and safer drinking water 24/7

As we have stated, a water filtration system will enable your household to enjoy crystal clear drinking water any time of the day. Free from all the bacteria, chemicals and heavy metals that either don’t come out of the treatment process or find their way back in after treatment has been completed. A home filtration system removes up to 2100 different types of contaminants from your water, making it cleaner, safer and healthier all round.

2 Cost effectiveness

If you’re sick of spending money year after year on bottled water, installing a water filtration system in your home can help you to potentially save hundreds of dollars each year that you can put towards a holiday, a new car or some other purpose. The initial cost of installation might surprise at first, but it will be quickly offset by the savings you’ll enjoy by not needing to purchase bottled water anymore.

3 Better for the planet

Many people opt for bottled drinking water, believing it to be safer and healthier than tap. While that may be the case, most plastic water bottles end up in landfill (only 38% get recycled). Installing a water filtration system in your home provides you with the clean water you’re looking for, thus negating the need to buy bottled water and therefore minimising the contribution of plastic to landfill that can take up to 450 years to disintegrate. All in all, better for the planet.

NOTE: 5 billion plastic water bottles were purchased in Australia last year. Installing effective filtration systems in homes across Australia can help to significantly reduce this figure.

4 Reduced aggravation of skin conditions

Many people who suffer from skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis find their conditions exacerbated by the heavy metals and chemicals (such as chlorine and fluoride) commonly found in tap water. A filtration system can remove these aggravation factors and potentially reduce any flare ups in these skin conditions, leading to a better quality of life for sufferers.

5 Slash plumbing repair bills

Many plumbing repairs are a result of damage to pipes caused by heavy metals, chemicals and other minerals found in unfiltered water. It makes sense then that installing a water filtration system will remove those impurities from the water, minimising potential damage to your plumbing and therefore reducing the need to call out a plumber for expensive repairs.

6 Save money on soap and soap products

Unfiltered water is generally harder than filtered water, with the filtration system essentially working as a softener. This aids in the lathering of soap meaning you don’t need to use as much whether in the shower or cleaning up in the kitchen. Harder, unfiltered water reduces the cleaning power of soap therefore requiring you to use and purchase more.

7 Improves taste and quality of drinking water

The removal of chemicals, metals and other impurities with the use of a filtration system significantly improves the quality and the taste of drinking water. The purity improves while any potential unwanted smells are removed. The water’s pH level also decreases, making it better for drinking as well.

8 Minimise potential for gastrointestinal diseases

Unfiltered water can be home to numerous parasites and bacteria that, if ingested, can result in gastrointestinal illnesses. Removing those microscopic organisms with a home water filtration system can reduce the potential for digestive and gastrointestinal illnesses from occurring.

These are just some of the benefits you can take advantage of simply by having a water filtration system installed in your home. A licensed and experienced plumbing company such as AP All Solutions will be able to help you choose the most suitable water filtration
