A technician installs a home water filtration system to better meet the homeowner's clean water needs.A water filtration system is useful when you are getting your water from a well, lake, stream, or municipal system. There are usually contaminants in the water that affects the taste and quality of the water. Here are some benefits you will get when you install a water filtration system in your house or building.

1. Taste Better

Water from natural sources can contain algae and other organic material that will make the water taste bad. Municipal systems often use chlorine to kill bacteria in the water. You can usually taste and smell the chlorine in the water when getting a drink out of a faucet. The problem is more pronounced during the summer when the water is warm enough to make the bacteria grow faster than during the cold weather. Removing the chlorine has also been shown to reduce the risk of rectal, bladder, and colon cancers.

A good water filtration system will remove the organic particulates and the chlorine.

2. Disease Control

Filtering your water reduces the chance you’ll get a gastrointestinal sickness from the cryptosporidium and giardia protozoans found in water. Chlorine does not kill these protozoa and they need to be filtered out to protect you from getting a severe gastrointestinal illness.

3. Protect Appliances

A good filter will remove the minerals that cause hard water. The minerals in hard water can build up in washing machines, dishwashers, and well pumps and cause them to break down. Hard water can also irritate the skin when showering.

4. Remove Lead

An issue that has become more pronounced over the past couple of years is the risk of having lead in the water. A good water filtration system can remove any lead from the pipes or the ground to help keep you safe.
