Water treatment for many homeowners means using a water pitcher with a water filter capability to remove particles from drinking water. However, that leaves the rest of the water in your home unfiltered. The contaminants in your drinking water may also exist in your dishwasher, washing machine, shower, and even water you use to brush your teeth. Don’t you and your family deserve clean water from every faucet and fixture you use?
A complete home water filter can be installed at the water supply’s point-of-entry into your home. This is the only way you can be sure your entire water supply is completely safe.
What Makes A Water Filter Necessary In Middleton & Cross Plains
Municipal water goes through a treatment process to make water safer for human consumption. While municipal water treatment is generally a good start, the process usually targets contaminants common to your area. Particles and organisms often remain or they can collect in the pipes along the way to your home. In addition, for public health reasons, water treatment plants introduce chemicals like chlorine and fluoride to the water, to which some people are sensitive.
By using a water filter for your homes’ water supply you are protecting against one or several contaminants. These contaminants can impact your health, skin, hair, and even your water pipes and plumbing.
Common contaminants include arsenic, which can lead to skin damage and has been linked to cancer, legionella, and an organism known to cause pneumonia. An effective water filter can also protect against nitrates which are a risk to small children.
With a whole-home water filter, you can target specific contaminants. Reverse osmosis filter systems provide the most comprehensive protection. A water treatment option that is easy to do is a water softener for preventing pipe damage and other problems caused by “hard water.”
