Water is arguably the most important thing in your home. Clean, crisp tap water should flow from your faucets with ease. It also impacts your general health, skin, and hair health, and depending on how you heat your home, keeps the heat going as well.
But you already have tap water, so why does water filtration in Sacramento, CA even need to exist as a service? Let’s break it down and how filtered water helps improve your everyday life in multiple ways.
Healthier Drinking Water
Until tap water passes through a filter, it shouldn’t be considered safe to drink. This sounds a bit extreme, but there’s far more in your tap water than you realize. Lead can make its way into your water, and so can pesticides, chlorine, and excessive amounts of various bacteria.
If you want to see for yourself, pour a glass of water straight from the tap, and hold it up to the sunlight. Look at all the particles floating around in the water. And that’s just what you can see–not to mention what you can’t.
Comparatively, filtered drinking water has far fewer bacteria that get through. While you won’t see 100% perfect, pure water when it’s filtered, it captures nearly everything. Visible the water will be much cleaner, and the same can be said for when it’s inspected on a microscopic level. It’s simply safer and healthier.
Greater Skin and Hair Health
Hard water contains a lot of minerals, and that may be your reason for seeking out water filtration in the first place. When your water comes in from the city supply, it’s been treated by chlorine, which is notorious for drying out your scalp. Alternatively, if you get your water from a well, there’s a high concentration of mineral deposits as well that can irritate your skin and hair. Water filtration removes most of them, which is, simply put, just much less stressful on your skin and hair.
Less Wear and Tear on Your Water Heater
If you have a traditional tank water heater as many of us do, you should know that the rod in its center becomes caked with calcium and mineral deposits over time. These deposits can sink in your water tank and effectively reduce its capacity as it solidifies, but when it clings to that rod, it can make its job of heating your water harder. Fewer minerals mean less wear and tear, or at least, wear and tear at a slower rate for your water heater.
