We might be able to do without food for a long time, but water is a core necessity for human life – and life in general. But, did you know that around a quarter of Americans have unsafe drinking water? No matter how good your tap water might seem, there is a good chance that it is contaminated with man-made or natural chemicals. Luckily, a whole house water filtration system can help. A whole house water filtration system, or point of entry filter, has many benefits, some of which we will review in this article. If you are ready to install yours, then call Mr. Rooter Plumbing of New Jersey to get started on scheduling your flexible appointment.
Good for Your Health
This is the most obvious reason to get a whole house water filtration system. It should come as no surprise that contaminants such as lead, fluoride, and chlorine as well as pollutants and toxins are not safe to consume. Even showering with this water can have consequences for your health as chemicals like chlorine can cause skin irritation and dryness. A point of entry water filtration system filters water from the main water supply line, giving you uncontaminated water from your faucets, shower heads, and other water lines.
Good for The Environment
Maybe you are already aware of the potential contaminants, pollutants, and toxins in the water supply. You may have addressed this problem by opting for bottled water. First, the long-term cost of buying bottled water is going to far surpass the one-time cost of installing a whole house water filtration system. Secondly, those plastic bottles are terrible for the environment, even if made of recycled plastic. On average, it takes over 400 years for a plastic bottle to fully disintegrate. Plus, many plastic bottles contain harmful chemicals that seep into the water as well. A water filtration system gives you clean water without devastating the environment.
Good for Your Plumbing System and Appliances
Those chemicals and pollutants aren’t just bad for your health. They can even damage your plumbing system and appliances. Even hard water can cause problems as the minerals build up in the pipes, leading to blockages, cracks, and leaks. This water can just as easily damage your garbage disposal, faucets, showerheads, washing machines, dishwasher, and refrigerator. A quick cost-benefit analysis tells you that the cost of installing a water filtration system is less than the massive cost associated with plumbing repairs and replacing those appliances.
