Why You Should Install a Home Filtration System

As a homeowner, one of your biggest responsibilities is to ensure every aspect of your home is safe, including your water supply – one of the most-used components of your home.

After all, we all need water to live! So if you believe your home's water supply needs help, a water filtration treatment system may be right for you.

At Croix Crystal Water Treatment, we help Western Wisconsin homeowners maximize water taste and safety with filtration systems. Our experts install top-notch products to remove contaminants from your water.

Let us explain why you should consider a home water filtration system and why our team is the right choice for professional installation!

What Is a Home Water Filtration System?

Water filtration is the process of removing or reducing the concentration of certain metals or contaminants in water. The most common contaminants are copper, bacteria, iron, fluoride, lead, and chlorine.

Home water filtration systems remove and destroy these contaminants through various methods, including activated carbon, ultraviolet light, water ionizers, or infrared technology.

Because your neighbor may be dealing with something different in their water, there are several types of water filtration systems to meet a variety of needs.

If you are concerned that you may need water filtration for your home, it is best to connect with a water treatment expert. They can help suggest the best water filtration system for your home, such as reverse osmosis, faucet water filters, or whole-home water filtration systems.

8 Benefits of a Home Water Filtration System

A water filtration system can enhance your home’s overall comfort and quality. And having filtered water can benefit you and your family in a number of ways, from increasing your safety to providing a better-tasting experience.

1. Access to Filtered Drinking Water

Unfiltered water can have a variety of natural contaminants in its makeup, such as lead, fluoride, and chlorine.

According to the EPA: “Drinking water may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. Some drinking water contaminants may be harmful if consumed at certain levels in drinking water while others may be harmless. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk.”

By installing a filtration system in your home, you'll have direct access to water without these contaminants. Filtered water is significantly safer to drink compared to unfiltered water.

2. Remove Potentially Harmful Chemicals Like PFOA

Unfortunately, there may be more in the water in Minnesota and Wisconsin than naturally occurring elements. PFOA stands for perfluorooctanoic acid – an artificial chemical in commercial use for nearly 80 years.

Since the 1940s, PFOA has been used for everything you can imagine: stain-resistant carpet, Teflon, water-repellent clothes, ski wax, paper, cardboard packaging, fire-extinguishing foam, and other industrial processes. When the substance or item is created, PFOA burns away. Unfortunately, it can still be found in the soil, air, and groundwater surrounding industrial plants, wherein PFOA was used in manufacturing processes.

Detection of PFOA is more common downriver from an industrial facility with historical PFOA use or disposal. This is because it does not break down easily in soil and because of its chemistry.

Potential health problems with exposure to PFOA in drinking water include delayed bone growth, accelerated male sexual development, a decrease in thyroid hormone levels and thyroid disease, reduced immune response, and other adverse health effects.

3. Minimize Your Carbon Footprint

By installing a whole house water filtration system, you won't have to rely on plastic water bottles to supply you with clean drinking water as often. This can help you protect the environment by minimizing your contribution to plastic waste.

If you need clean water on the go, you can easily fill up a reusable water bottle right from your own faucet.

4. Save More Money

With a whole-house water filtration system, you won't have to rely on purchasing bottled water, saving you a lot of money in the long run. Bottled water can be a hefty recurring cost.

By installing a filtration system, you'll be able to cut out that cost almost entirely because the filtration system will give you direct access to clean, filtered water right in the comfort of your own home.

5. Enjoy Healthier Skin and Hair

Because unfiltered water can contain a variety of toxins and pollutants, a water filtration system can also gain access to safer bathing water. For example, when metals such as fluoride and chlorine get into your water, the water can aggravate your skin and make various skin conditions, such as eczema, significantly worse.

Installing a whole-house water filtration system will benefit your skin by removing those harmful particles from your bathing water.

6. Extend the Life of Your Plumbing System

Filtered water can help you minimize and cut down on costly plumbing repair services. However, harmful chemicals and metals can wear down and damage your home's pipes and plumbing system.

To save your home's plumbing system from enduring these harmful chemicals, contact Croix Crystal Water Treatment to install a new whole-house water filtration system.

7. Enhance the Taste of Drinking Water

Contaminants often found in unfiltered water can cause the water to have an unpleasant taste. By installing a whole-house water filtration system, you can enhance your water's taste and smell, making it more enjoyable to drink and use.

8. Get Cleaner Clothes for the Whole Family

The chemicals in unfiltered water can cause your clothes to smell and feel unpleasant. Additionally, when the water isn't efficiently clean, clothes and dishes can develop a buildup of soap scum.

If you think your home could benefit from a whole-house water filtration system, contact Croix Crystal Water Treatment. We can promptly install a dependable system so you can have clean, better-tasting water for years to come.
