Nowadays people are using more than just a sink filter in their homes. After studies came out documenting the dangers of bathing and cleaning with tap water, many people have taken the plunge and bought whole house water filters.
It might sound like an exaggeration to use a whole house water filter but it's really not. The dangers of what comes out of your tap are not only a problem when you drink it. Pretty much any activity that involves the use of tap water is a risk. Here are 7 great benefits of using a whole house filter that may convince you to also take the plunge.
1 ) Whole house water filtration systems are your last means of protection if your municipal treatment facility were to break down. Imagine the horror of getting dirty water only worthy of a sewer coming out of your sink. Breakdowns are known to occur and the only way to stay safe is with a whole house filter.
2.) A whole house water filter is a one-stop solution to filtration. You won't need separate filters in your bathroom and kitchen. You will only need one system that will get the job done.
3.) Whole house filters keep the air in your house cleaner. This is especially important if anyone in your family suffers from allergies or asthma because these conditions can be aggravated when chemicals that come from the tap are released in the air.
4.) When you have a whole house filter, you can wash your clothes in clean, filtered water. This means that no harsh chemicals will get embedded in your clothing and your clothing will last a lot longer. Chemicals in tap water cause the fibers in fabric to break down more quickly.
5.) Whole house filters provide the cleanest drinking water possible because there will be no contaminants entering your homes plumbing system.
6.) A whole house filter is far more effective than filtering the shower because it removes all of the contaminants when the water is at a low temperature. Shower filters on the other hand remove fewer contaminants since they are used once.
7.) Whole house filters reduce soap scum on dishes and in your bathroom. You will notice that you spend a lot less time scrubbing your house because soap scum will nearly disappear.
Basically, there are a vast number of benefits to using whole house water filters. Sure, any filter is better than no filter at all. But why not reap the maximum benefits by having all of the water in your home filtered in one fell swoop?
You won't have to worry about installing different gadgets throughout your home as every water source in your home will have fresh, filtered water. It's convenient, easy, and surprisingly affordable. There is really no reason not to give it a shot.
