Here’s one of life’s little ironies: nothing is more essential to our bodies than water, and yet most people don’t treat water quality as a high priority – at least not enough to ensure that their home water supply is as clean and pure as possible.
Why is that? There are probably a few reasons, including “if you can’t see, smell, or taste a problem, then there probably isn’t one.” That may sound like a convincing argument, but it’s simply not true.
Most tap and bottled water won’t harm you, but that’s not a certainty, even with municipal water supplies. Water with high levels of organic and inorganic contaminants consumed over a long period of time can lead to severe health problems, including these:
- Weakened immune system
- Cellular damage
- Rectal, colon and bladder cancer
Filtered water, on the other hand, can significantly reduce that risk while retaining healthy mineral levels to help balance the pH level.
Here at Anthony’s Plumbing, Heating & Air, we install whole-house and point-of-use water filters. But, for clean water throughout your home, a whole-house filter is the clear choice.
Even a high-end water filtration system costs far less than bottled water in the long run. Even greater savings are achieved by reducing the expense of producing plastic water bottles – not to mention the ecological waste and contamination of unrecycled plastic water bottles.
The absence of chlorine will make your hair, skin and nails look much heathier.
Because filtered water removes chlorine and other contaminates, it contributes to a better, more natural taste. If you have better-tasting water in your home, you will naturally be inclined to increase water consumption while cutting back on soda and other sugary and less healthy options.
