Broken Arrow, OK Plumbers on the Benefits of a Water Filtration System

Most people have heard of the recommendation to drink 8 12-ounce glasses of water every day in order to stay healthy and hydrated. If you buy this much bottled water, you might find that your grocery budget is mostly spent on drinking water instead of the foods you enjoy.

Instead of spending too much money on bottled water or drinking foul tasting tap water, you can work with a plumber to have a residential water filtration system installed in your home.

Filtration

Removes Chlorination Byproducts

Cities use water treatment centers as a way to cleanse water of bacteria, viruses, parasites and other organisms that cause illness. During this process, chlorine is added to the water. The byproducts of chlorination have been found to increase the risk of certain types of cancer.

When you have a water filtration system installed in your home, the equipment removes those byproducts so you do not consume them.

Lead Removal

When you use a water filtration service, you can enjoy tap water that is free of contaminants like lead.

Consumption of lead is known to cause a variety of health problems, especially in infants, children and pregnant women.

Fewer Microbes

No matter whether your home is connected to a municipal water supply or you have well water, some microbes will still be present in the water that comes out of your faucets.

A water filtration system helps to filter out potentially harmful cysts and microorganisms such as giardia and cryptosporidium. Fewer contaminants in your water lessens your risk of developing gastrointestinal illnesses.

Better Tasting

Filtered water does not have the chemical smells that tap water often has. With fewer impurities, filtered water often tastes better than tap water.

Most states do not have any regulations about bottled water, which in some cases is nothing more than unfiltered tap water from a city water supply.

When the water that you are drinking tastes good to you, you may be more likely to drink more of it. The foods and drinks you make with the freshly filtered water from your home may also taste better to you.
