Is a Home Water Filtration System Really Worth It

Considering that the average adult human body comprises about 60% water, it should be no surprise that water is critical for our bodies to function properly. Knowing this, wouldn’t you want to make sure you treat yourself to the cleanest, purest, healthiest water available? And if you could enjoy that healthy water while saving money and doing your part to save the planet, isn’t that a win-win-win? 

You might be under the impression that the tap water in your home is free of chemicals and minerals because it has previously passed through a water treatment facility. Unfortunately, it may not arrive at your faucets still pristine. Water can pick up various contaminants from the miles of pipes it passes through to reach your home.

Some homes also suffer from hard water, which adds to the minerals and chemicals found in your drinking supply. While not harmful to your health, hard water might have an odd taste or smell. Also, hard water leaves mineral deposits and buildup on your pipes and appliances, plus makes washing your skin, hair, and clothes more difficult.

So, what can you do to achieve a safer water supply? Implementing a whole home water filtration system helps eliminate these issues and ensures you always have a steady supply of clean and pure water in your home. 


Enjoy Safe, Better-Tasting Drinking Water 

Water treatment facilities add chlorine to your water to help kill the other contaminants. They also tend to add fluoride to prevent tooth decay and keep your teeth strong and healthy. However, there is a debate that fluoride may increase the risk of other diseases. A home water filtration system can remove both of these elements and more from your tap water. This added filtration helps lowers your water’s pH level while improving its purity, smell, and overall taste. With freshly filtered water, you’ll also notice a flavorful difference in your water-based foods and beverages, enjoying more delicious pasta, soups, teas, and coffee.


Minimize Skin Conditions

Chlorine and fluoride can also aggravate chronic skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis, especially in children. When the excess minerals in non-filtered water dry directly on the skin, it can cause dryness, clogged pores, and lead to acne breakouts and other skin irritations. A home water filtration system helps fight hard water, providing your whole family with a more skin-friendly bathing experience.


Reduce Soap Scum and Mineral Deposits on Clothes

Over time, the contaminants in non-filtered tap water can leave mineral deposits on your clothes and could even cause them to start to smell differently. This soap scum buildup also changes the integrity of your fabrics, causing them to weaken and wear out faster. Having these chemical-laden materials from your clothes and bedding constantly touching your skin can also lead to rashes and allergies over time. Home water filtration can help you achieve a better clean for your laundry and give your linens and wardrobe a longer lifespan.


Protect Your Plumbing and Appliances

Having a water filtration system installed in your home can lower your water bill and reduce your need for plumbing repairs. Heavy metals, minerals, and chemicals in unfiltered water lead to buildup on your pipes and any appliances that use water. And as the mineral deposits build up in your pipes, your water pressure decreases, which can end up causing an increase in your bills.

These same mineral deposits can cause your appliances to malfunction as the buildup restricts water flow, making your appliances work harder and use more power to operate. This struggle not only pumps up your electric bill but also damages appliances and shortens their lifespan. Potential victims include your garbage disposal, washing machine, dishwasher, showerheads, and some refrigerators. Even kettles and coffee pots may get bogged down with water contaminants.


Protect the Environment

In 2020, 50 billion plastic water bottles were purchased in the U.S. alone, 91% of which weren’t recycled. Environmental scientists estimate that by 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. The water filtration systems available at The Science of Water provide the same, if not better, filtered water that you purchase from the bottled water companies, without the excess plastic waste. By switching your household to reusable bottles, you can feel good knowing you are doing your part for your health and the environment.


Save Money Overall

Some people hesitate to make the initial investment of installing a water filtration system. But over time, it’s actually a money-saving move. You can stop spending cash on bottled water, get more wear out of your clothes, and avoid the costly damage that contaminants can wreak on plumbing and appliances. Altogether, you can end up saving hundreds or even thousands of dollars in the first year alone. Imagine how much this can add up over the years compared to the cost of replacement filters. Your wallet will thank you.
