A water pitcher with a water filter capability to remove particles from drinking water is one of the best water treatment plans for many homeowners. However, the rest of the water in your home is still unfiltered. The same contaminants you wanted to remove from your drinking water may also be prevalent in dishwashers, washing machines, showers, and even the water used when brushing your teeth. Most people feel their family deserves clean water from every faucet used.
A point-of-entry water filter can be installed in your home protecting all of the water your family comes in contact with. This is the one method ensuring your entire water supply is safe. After all, there is no possible way to know what your kids are doing every minute of the day or where they might be getting their next drink from. On hot summer days is it possible hot kids playing outside would drink from a hose in your yard rather than going inside to a sink with a filter?
What Makes A Water Filter Necessary In Waukesha WI
The municipal water treatment process makes water safer for human consumption. The process generally targets common local contaminants. However, particles or organisms often remain. They can also collect in the pipes along the way to your home. This is why, for public health concerns, municipal water treatment plants use chemicals like chlorine and fluoride in the water.
By using a water filter, your home’s water supply will be protected against one or several contaminants. These contaminants can affect your health, skin, hair, and even pipes and plumbing.
Common contaminants are arsenic, which can lead to skin damage and has been linked to cancer, and legionella, an organism known to cause pneumonia. An effective filter can also protect against nitrates which are a risk to small children.
A whole-home water filter can target specific contaminants and even act as a tankless water heater as well. A reverse osmosis filter system will provide the most comprehensive protection. A water treatment option that is easy to add is a water softener for preventing pipe damage and other problems caused by “hard water.”
