The Importance of Home Water Treatment

Filling a glass with tap water

What’s in your water?

Although municipal government-run water treatment facilities do a wonderful job of keeping our tap water clean, unfortunately, some contaminants do make their way through the system. That’s where home water treatment systems can come in handy. These systems work hard, night and day, to reduce the contaminants from the water that you use to drink, bathe, and essentially, live.

Let’s take a deeper look at the importance of home water treatment.

The Harmful Effects of Contaminants in Water

Many contaminants are found in everyday drinking water. When you read the word “contaminants” a red light may go off. Contaminants is a very broad and general word used to describe anything found in the tap water that isn’t water molecules.

Contaminants such as iron, lead, sulphur, fluoride, bacteria, chlorine, and salmonella, can be traced back to your tap water. For example, sulphur water can sometimes have a laxative effect on some who drink it. While chlorinate found in tap water has been associated with premature aging of skin, asthma, and more. In small doses, these contaminants are virtually harmless.

But, why take the chance?

When you install a water purification system, you’re taking the next step in enhancing the safety and quality of the tap water. The same tap water that’s used to hydrate and bathe your entire family.
