Water filtration systems remove minerals and other impurities from the water in your house. While all tap water is safe to drink, it can pick up a few trace chemicals here and there along the way. Chlorine, sulfur and mineral sediment are just a few of the impurities that can creep into unfiltered water on the way to your tap. That’s of a particular concern in Cleveland-area communities like Westlake; filtration systems remove the impurities coming from Lake Erie, where we derive most of our drinking water. The specific benefits of water filtration systems are quite numerous, and can include the following:
- Clean drinking water. The most obvious benefit is cleaner water for drinking and cooking. You can see the difference if you freeze ice cubes made of regular tap water, and then freeze another batch made of filtered water. The filtered ice looks cleaner and clearer than the unfiltered ice. Water filtration also makes things easier on the ice maker in your refrigerator, helping it last longer.
- Healthier skin. Bathing in unfiltered water or wearing clothes washed in unfiltered water can have an adverse effect on your body. Your skin may become rougher or suffer from irritation, and you may find that soaps and shampoos don’t wash off as cleanly as you’d like. Water filtration helps eliminate that; you may find your skin feeling softer and cleaner without even trying.
- Less wear on your plumbing. Hard water results in scaling and build-up inside the pipes in your home. Over time, that can wear out the components and increase the risk of a leak or similar repair. Water filtration systems ease the strain on your pipes, helping to preserve them and avoiding the need for costly repairs in the future.
