Keeping your family stocked up with drinking water is a hassle, not to mention expensive and wasteful. Why not save time, money, and the environment by installing a drinking water system in your home instead? You could get crisp, clean, tasty water from your kitchen sink rather than a plastic bottle.
Let’s look at the benefits of drinking water systems, how they work, and what would complement your system for the best water for your whole home.
Drinking Water System Benefits
Investing in a drinking water system for your home comes with many benefits, including:
- Convenience. Buying and storing cases or jugs of drinking water is a real hassle. Why deal with that when you can get great-tasting water from your sink for drinking and cooking?
- Better for your budget. Buying drinking water gets expensive quickly. Even if you use faucet filters or pitchers instead, replacing those filters gets expensive, too. Drinking water system filters only need replaced about once a year.
- Save the environment. A vast amount of plastic is clogging up our oceans and landfills. Do your part to reduce plastic bottle waste.
How Do Drinking Water Systems Work?
While each system may vary slightly the number of stages, drinking water systems generally work like this:
- Stage 1: Sediment filtration to protect the system from microscopic sediment and debris.
- Stage 2: Carbon block filtration to remove chlorine and protect the composite membrane.
- Stage 3: Reverse osmosis filtration using a composite membrane to remove particles too small for the prefilters and other dissolved solids/contaminants (salts, metals, etc.).
- Stage 4: Extended contact granular activated carbon (GAC) filtration to remove additional contaminants and enhance the color and flavor of your water.
- Stage 5: In-line polishing filter to removes any remaining taste or odors before reaching your glass providing you with the best-tasting water.
Protect Your System With a Whole Home Conditioner
Even if your home is connected to municipal water where the water delivered to your home is safe for drinking, you could benefit from a whole home water conditioner.
Although there are no health concerns with hard water, hardness in municipally supplied water still plagues many homes. Hard water leaves water spots and soap scum on your dishes, glassware, flatware, plumbing fixtures and showers. Hard water also requires additional soap and cleaning products for dishes, laundry, bathing and household cleaning. This hardness not only affects the efficiency and life of your water using household appliances, but also your drinking water system.
A water conditioner can help solves these problems and save your skin, dishes, clothes, appliances, and more. If you’re thinking about improving the water you use for drinking and cooking by adding a drinking water system, why not also add a water conditioning system to tackle your hard water problem while you’re at it?
