You rely on the water that comes out of your faucet to be safe to drink, but it might contain chemicals and contaminants that you'd rather avoid. While substances in drinking water may be at a safe level, you may prefer that they are eliminated completely. One way to get clean water is to install a drinking water filtration system so you don't have to worry about the water you use to cook with or drink. Here are reasons to consider filtering your water.
Your Home's Water May Pick Up Contaminants
While municipal water is tested regularly for safety, there's always a risk of contamination of a city's water supply due to accidental leaks or dumps. Plus, the water can pick up contaminants as it travels through pipes before it comes out of your faucet. You can test your water to see what it contains, but that only reveals what is in the water at that time. You'd be unaware of new contamination until you checked the water again. You can eliminate all the uncertainty about the purity of your water by installing a filtration system that ensures that each time you turn on the faucet, filtered and pure water will come out.
Bottled Water May Be Unsafe Too
If you buy bottled water by the gallon to replace your drinking water at home, you may not be getting the pure water you think you're getting. You don't know for sure what's in the water and how the water was handled before it reached you. Plastic contamination is a concern, especially if the jugs were exposed to the sun or heat in a truck. Limiting your reliance on water stored in plastic is possible when you have your own water filter at home. Your home's filter may even do a superior job of filtering out contaminants, and the water from home is fresh rather than being stored for weeks or months in a plastic bottle.
City Or Well Water May Have A Bad Taste
If you travel around the country frequently, you've probably noticed that water in different cities tastes differently. That's because of the differences in the geography and minerals that leach into the water. The difference in taste can be difficult to get used to when you first move to a new city, and a filter helps with this problem. A water filter removes particulates as well as gases, so the water loses its odor and foul taste. This could encourage you to drink more water and it eliminates water giving your foods an unusual taste.
A drinking water filtration system removes gases, pathogens, heavy metals, and chemicals from water. Whether you have well water or city water, a filtration system makes your water cleaner and safer to drink.
