Water filtration systems are installed in your home in order to “purify” the water; that is, remove the presence of chemicals, minerals and other components that you might not necessarily want to consume. Most tap water is perfectly safe to drink, cook and bathe in. Civic authorities have a duty to provide safe, reliable drinking water, and official Avon Lake filtration systems do a good job of removing impurities from our primary water supply, Lake Erie. Even so, water filtration systems provide an extra layer of protection for your home, which in turn improves the quality of life in small but meaningful ways.
Here are some benefits of water filtration systems.
- Cleaner water. It sounds obvious, but cleaner, clearer water tastes better and is healthier overall than water straight from the tap. A water filtration system can help you do a little test that proves this point. Freeze a batch of ice cubes using filtered water, then freeze another batch using water straight from the tap. He filtered cubes will look clearer and taste fresher than the ones created from the tap.
- It’s easier on clothes and skin. Bathing in filtered water can help soften your skin and reduce the roughness and irritation that comes from minerals in unfiltered water. Similarly, clothes that are laundered in filtered water tend to feel softer and last longer than those washed in unfiltered water.
- It’s easier on plumbing. The minerals and other components in regular tap water can create scaling and cause other long-term damage to your plumbing over time. A filtered water system will ease that strain, extending the life of your plumbing and reducing the risk of expensive repairs in the future.
