Advanced Water Filtration
The well-being of our families is one our first priorities and is always on our minds. If your home does not already come equipped with an advanced water filtration system now may be the time to contact an Arlington plumber to come assess your home. If you have noticed a strange taste, smell or discoloration in the tap water then an advanced water filtration system may be a wise choice for you and your family. In this article we will discuss the benefits of having an advanced water filtration system installed in your home by a professional Arlington plumber.
Bottled water has become a common convenience in most homes nowadays, especially in homes where homeowners are concerned about the safety of the existing tap water in their home. However, the cost of bottled water can be a very expensive solution. Usually it is much more cost-effective in the long haul to have an advanced water filtration system installed in the home by a professional Arlington plumber than to continue purchasing bottled water.
One of the most problems with most households is that the tap water taste or smells a bit off. More often than naught this taste can be due to chlorine, however, it could also be caused by bacteria and other pathogens that have found their way into the tap water. Another more serious contaminant that can be found in tap water is lead. Lead can lead to multiple health issues, some of which are extremely serious. Lead has been known to cause birth defects and even cancer. An advanced water filtration professionally installed by a reputable and experienced Arlington plumber could filtrate out these contaminants from the tap water.
The most common contaminant that is intentionally added in tap water is chlorine. Water utility companies intentionally add this contaminant in the water supply so that fewer germs and other harmful contaminants do not make their way into the tap water. However, chlorine is not healthy either. Studies have shown that drinking water that has been sterilized with chlorine has been linked to increased chances of bladder, colon and rectal cancer.
Another two common contaminants that can be found in tap water is cryptosporidium and giardia. These two pathogens lead to gastrointestinal issues. The pH balance of tap water is another issue that will vary from city to city. Some tap water will be more acidic than others. If the pH balance of the water is too high or too low, it will not be healthy for you as well. Carbon filter blocks installed by a professional Arlington plumber in an advanced water filtration systems will help restore the pH balance in tap water to a safe and healthy level. Carbon filter blocks, not limited to just pH balance, also remove other particulates from the water to improve the taste.
It is not only the consumption of tap water from an unfiltered source that can be littered with dangers but when you use unfiltered tap water to wash your food and clean your dishes can lead to harmful contaminates still being consumed. Our bodies when treated correctly will function at its best performance. We require fresh, clean water daily and without it then our muscles, organs and even brain will not function at their best performance. Not only this, but our immune system will not be able to fight off illnesses as well as it could. Impurities in the water can and will affect the immune system in a negative way. An advanced water filtration system installed by a professional Arlington plumber will solve this.
Children’s immune systems are also very vulnerable to contaminants and pathogens that can be found in the tap water. Too young to have built up slight tolerances and with the fact that they are still growing and developing, children are at much higher risks than adults. Tap water may contain as much as 2,100 different types of contaminants in it. An advanced water filtration system is not something that should be taken lightly. With all of the contaminants spilling into our drinking water, it is a critical component in today’s residential homes.
