Are water filtration systems worth it?
Since a water filtration system is not something that automatically comes with a home or business as is seen with other systems like with an air conditioning service, people often think they can do without them. However, water filtration systems are worth it when you take into mind that you will be saving on the costs of water bottles over time as well as the benefits readily filtered water will have on your health and the environment.
Why is water filtration important?
Water filtration is important for a variety of reasons both with concern to individual health and environmentally. First of all, it lessens the influx of bacteria that can permeate your pipelines from the water treatment facility to your property. Secondly, tap water can carry chemicals that can cause health concerns such as barium which is linked to hypertension, cadmium linked to kidney disease, manganese which is a toxin to pregnant women and young children as well as a variety of other chemicals not mentioned here. Environmental benefits include it lessening the amount of plastic sent to the dump which would take at the least three centuries to degrade. Believe it or not, it takes three times more water to produce plastic bottles than to fill one bottle. Finally, if you are a bottles water advocate, it may interest you to know that bottled water is more often of equal quality and rarely higher than tap water.
What are the benefits of water filtration?
A water filtration system is beneficial for weight loss, nutrient absorption, detoxification, skin hydration, and overall health.
What is the best water filtration system?
The three-stage water filtration system is the system that is lauded as yielding the best results for purified water.
How do water filtration systems work?
A water filtration system will work in different ways depending on the filters you’re using. An ideal system will use a pre-filter, a secondary filter, and a post-filter. What is typically seen first that would act as a pre-filter is an activated carbon system? This filter would attract larger sediments and silt which would, in turn, be absorbed by the activated carbon filters. Ultimately, factors that can cause water odor as seen with chlorine would be taken away which improves the taste of the water. Typically, a reverse osmosis system is employed as the secondary filtration system as it is in this stage that the water would be pressurized and then passed through a semipermeable membrane which would hold onto the impurities and contaminants. The final, post-filter stage usually consists of a final polish that can be seen with UV lights or another choice that you can choose to incorporate for that final touch. Although it’s great to have a three-stage filter process you can also pick and choose individual attachments if you prefer.
What water filtration system do I need?
At the basic level, it may be best to go with a activated carbon system if you’re in an area where basic filters are absent. The most widely used system, however, is the reverse osmosis filtration system as this is the stage where the chemicals are reduced significantly in your water.
What is a whole house water filtration system?
A whole house water filtration system is also known as a point of entry (POE) system as it’s typically installed on your main water line or at a point before the water reaches your water heater so it can filter both hot and cold water for your showers, kitchen, laundry, and more!
Water Filtration System vs Water Softener
Oftentimes people mistake water softeners as a water filtration system. However, it’s important to know about the processes behind each type of system in order to know be made aware of what each actually does and does not do. Ultimately, a water softener will not provide you with cleaner water. It will only change the taste. A water softener essentially attracts chemicals in the water through a bed of sodium ion covered beads which in turn exchanges the calcium and other chemicals that make hard water into the softer positive ions of sodium. Basically, you are introducing salt into the water while taking calcium away. If your looking to get rid of contaminants, chemicals and impurities a water filtration system will be the better option to consider.
