Along with the arrival of the New Year comes the common desire to move forward with a focused, fresh start. Considering this concept, you might be inclined to apply that clean break to more than just your mindset in 2019. Here are a few reasons why water treatment should be on the list of annual goals for all homeowners.
Is it worth it?
Your first thought is probably about whether or not it is even worth it to get a water treatment for your home. We hear the buzz about what we “should” do, but is it really necessary? Water supplies contain contaminants that no one should be ingesting, including bacteria, lead, and mercury. While local water supplies treat the pollutants, certain circumstances can occur that lead to these harmful contaminants sneaking into your H2o.
Untreated water fights against our resolutions to be healthier, due to the chemicals and toxic materials that can potentially stir up unnecessary health issues such as:
- Increased risks of cancer
- Birth defects
- Heart problems
- Diarrhea and vomiting
- Alzheimer’s disease
It’s all about the taste
Among these contaminants are other factors that can also disturb the taste of your drinking water. Have you ever sipped on chlorinated or metallic flavors? Treating the water means that what you swallow will be free of any extra, uninvited flavors.
A demand for clean water
If you are living in an older home, there is a higher chance of your pipes and plumbing system welcoming copper and other pollutants to creep into your water supply. Despite the treatments being done on the local water supply front, there is still potential for such toxins to enter your home daily as the water streams through worn, rusted pipes. The simplest solution is to cleanse your water with a solid treatment so you can feel safe about the liquids flowing through your body.
Pets need healthy water too
As essential as the purification process is for you, it positively impacts your pets when you refill their water bowl, and the plants that require liquid nutrition. Using contaminant-free water will assist in lowering their exposure to chemicals that threaten their health. While there are countless risks that we come across on a daily basis, we can control the possibilities of additional hazards by merely treating the water we use.
