Whole House Water Filtration
Tap water is a blessing and a curse. It is convenient, available and often safe. One major problem with tap water, is that often it has gone through a crude or large scale purification process that adds disinfectants but does not filter those same chemicals back out. This causes the tap water to be what is often termed “hard” water. Hard water can be just that, hardening! It can cause hardening of the arteries and veins and possibly cause other unknown health side effects. It can cause dryness of the skin and it can possibly change the taste or deliciousness of foods being cooked with the water. Lastly, hard water can cause lasting damage to windows when used to spray onto the window for cleaning or other reasons.
As an experiment, fill up a water bottle about two thirds of the way up with tap water and seal it with a lid. Let it sit for a few hours. After a period of time, unscrew the bottle and smell the water. Often, a chlorine or cleaning chemical smell is present. This is a major sign the water is very “hard.”
With the above information presented, there are several reasons to do whole house water filtration including:
- Prevent unknown health side effects including damage to veins and arteries.
- Keep chemicals known to dry skin from being on the skin.
- Preventing extra wear and tear of the water pipes.
- Use tap water in cooking and large scale drinking.
- Use the tap water for cleaning without fear of causing damage
These are just a few of the reasons for switching to whole house water filtration as the peace of mind and added health are very difficult to quantify.
