The new year is a time many Atlanta residents opt to make changes to improve their health. Whether you’ve resolved to join a gym or complete your first marathon, everyone benefits from fresh water in their home. Water filtration delivers healthy, fresh water to every tap, helping you reach those goals.
Whole-home water filtration offers numerous benefits to your health and home.
Improve Quality with Water Filtration
Local water quality and treatment measures affect the way your water tastes, smells and looks. Chlorine and chloramines used in water treatment cause a strong smell and other contaminants alter the taste and appearance of your water.
Water filtration systems remove contaminants. You’ll drink healthier water. Plus your water will be better tasting, smelling and looking.
Reduce Contaminants with Water Filtration
Whole-home water filtration systems effectively remove microscopic contaminants in your water. Water filtration systems are rated for the size of the hole in the filter, measured in microns.
Depending on the rating of your water filtration system, contaminants can be removed or reduced from your home’s water. As a result, this improves the health and safety of your family. Contaminants commonly removed and reduced include:
- Giardia labia
- Disinfection byproducts.
Extend Appliance Service Life with Water Filtration
For instance, with more contaminants out of your home’s water supply, whole-home filtration systems can extend the service life of your water-using appliances. Water heaters, dishwashers, washing machines and even coffee pots benefit.
The lack of sediment and other contaminants prevents buildup which eventually harms their components. Water filtration systems for your home help you save money on repairs or replacements for these appliances.
Water Filtration Protects Your Atlanta Plumbing System
Your home’s plumbing system will also be protected by the filtration your whole-home system provides. Fewer contaminants affecting plumbing components lessens the likelihood of malfunctions which require plumbing repair.
When chlorinated water is heated, harmful gases called trihalomethanes, or THMs, are released. These gases are harmful to your health and exposure causes side effects such as reddened eyes, headaches and dizziness.
As whole-home filtration systems reduce chlorine and chloramines, your family’s showers and baths become healthier.
With increased contaminant removal, bathing with fresh water also improves the look and feel of your skin. You may also notice your hair is softer with fewer tangles.
You’ll need less soap for bathing, as well as dish and clothes washing. Why? Because the filter removes minerals which limit the cleaning power of soaps and detergents.
Low Maintenance Needs
Whole-home water filtration systems are simple to use. They also require very little maintenance performed by homeowners. The filters these systems use have a long service life. Most average from five to ten years.
Estes Services can also check and change your filters when needed during regular plumbing system maintenance visits.
Cleaner Home and Clothing
Contaminants in unfiltered water leave deposits on surfaces such as showers, sinks and toilets, as well as on clothing in the laundry. Unfiltered water also causes a buildup of soap scum. With a whole-home water filtration system, your clothing and fixtures stay cleaner.
