Having a water treatment system in your home cleans the water which comes out of your faucet, so you don’t have to worry about the damaging effects of hard water on your pipes, appliances, your clothes, and even your health. However, many homeowners only have a water filter installed under the kitchen sink and not the rest of home.
Here are four reasons why it is essential to have clean water in all parts of your home, not just your kitchen:
- Gets rid of more than just the bad taste of hard water. Although your water filter eliminates the foul smell and taste of your tap water, it could still leave harmful chemicals, including rust and sediment. These minerals can be visible in your drinking water and cause hard water build up in your filter after prolonged use. Upgrading to a whole-house filtration system can eradicate these particles and protect your appliances from damage caused by hard water.
- Lowers plumbing costs. While your sink may experience fewer problems, running hard water through your faucets, drains, and shower heads can result in lime and scale build up. This build up can clog your pipes and reduce the lifespan of your appliances and fixtures which use running water. Soft water throughout your home will reduce the time and money you spend maintaining your home’s plumbing.
- Save money. Lastly, who doesn’t like saving money? While a water filter can eliminate the need to purchase water bottles, a home filtration system can help you save money on your soaps, detergents, and energy bills.
