The water found within our homes may have several issues that need to be addressed, such as the presence of nitrates or harmful contaminants. If your water produces a foul odor, has an unrecognizable taste or is discolored, the best solution is to treat the water at the tap.
A whole home water filtration system will provide cleaner water to every faucet in your home. Here are some of the most common reasons homeowners consider a whole home filtration system.
The majority of Canadians will opt to filter the water in their kitchen before considering their bathrooms or other water resources. If you’re renting your home, the only option may be to purchase a filtered water pitcher, since no installation is required. While the water you consume will be clean and healthy, the water that is delivered to your shower, kitchen sink and appliances will contain harmful chemicals.
Chlorine is often used as a disinfecting agent for public water and can be found in most home’s water systems. Homes that are not filtering out water from every source will have chlorine present in their shower, dishwasher and sinks. Not only will chlorine be used to wash your body or clean your food, the vapors that are present when you shower will be inhaled and can cause long-term damage to your lungs.
Water is used to clean our bodies and our food, quench our thirst and run our appliances. The water that is running in our dishwasher releases vapors into the air that includes chemicals found in municipal water. When we are in our homes, we are inhaling these vapors and possibly causing damage to our lungs.
For individuals who suffer from asthma or allergies, cleaner air and water is essential to their comfort and health. By installing a whole house water filter, you will keep the air in your home clean, as well as the drinking water, linens and more. A whole house water filter does more than just provide clean drinking water — it keeps your entire home healthy.
Mistakes can happen at water treatment facilities and unfortunately, when they do, it puts thousands of families at risk. By installing a whole home water system you’re home is protected from harmful chemicals, bacteria, or even viruses that can cause widespread illnesses.
Whole house water filtration systems are an investment that is more than an increase to the value of your home — they are an investment in your health and your family’s safety. For more information about Filter Butler’s Whole House Water Filtration System, visit our website.
