4 Benefits of Having a Water Filtration System in the Home

How much water do you drink each day? Hydration is crucial to your health and well-being. Your mind is more active and your body is more alert when you hydrate properly. That’s why you need to drink the cleanest water possible. Here are four benefits of having a water filtration system in the home.

Fewer Plastic Bottles

Some benefits of drinking more faucet water benefit you directly. Others are better for the entire world. For example, when you drink from a filtration system, you no longer need to find pure water from other sources. That means distributors like Aquafina and Evian will produce less bottled water. An estimated 7,000 fewer bottles of plastic will exist, which helps the environment.

You’ll enjoy a second benefit by thinking globally. You will restore a lot of pantries and/or refrigerator space. A case of bottled water takes up a storage room that you could better use in other ways, and you’ll no longer need to keep a few bottles cold.

Healthier Water

This benefit is the obvious one, but it’s also the most important. Tap water comes with potential health risks, as the citizens of Flint, Michigan sadly learned. When you drink water from the pipeline, you must trust the people in charge of water sanitation. Sometimes that’s a gamble.

Most American tap water has high levels of arsenic. The Environmental Protection Agency has warned citizens of this risk for many years now, yet people continue to drink water straight from the faucet.

When you add a filtration system to your home, you remove all doubt about your water quality. You also don’t have to spend a lot of money to take this precaution. Fixr indicates that a home water treatment system costs $250-$400 on average, a small price to pay for confidence in your drinking water.

Even the high-end cost of $3,000 is reasonable when you consider that people should have at least six glasses of water each day. A filtration system is a sort of water insurance that’s worth almost any price.

Tastier Water

One of the secondary issues of impure water is that it comes with an aftertaste. You may not even realize it, but your tap water often doesn’t taste right. If you doubt this, try a glass of regular water from your faucet. Then, drink some bottled water. You’ll immediately notice the difference in quality.

By using a filtration system, every glass of water will taste like bottled water, which is amazing. After all, you pay about a dollar a bottle when you buy bottled water individually. A filtration system offers the same flavor for your tap water.

Tastier Food

The tastier water will even have a side benefit. Whenever you cook something that has water as an ingredient, that food will taste better. You’re using superior quality of water in your recipe, and it will have a ripple effect in improving many of your recipes.

A water filtration system is a smart purchase. The reasons listed here are just a few of the benefits of buying a system.
