Lets face it … the water we use in our home today, needs to be filtered. Filtered water not only taste better, it is safer for our family to drink.
The next step may be to consider installing a whole house water filter. Every ounce of water entering your home would be filtered. But what are the benefits of installing a whole house water filter?
There are many, as I will explain.
The sole purpose of installing whole house water filters is to insure that not only is the water we drink safe, but also the water that we cook with, clean with and bathe in are of the utmost quality.
Many people have taken the next step to increasing the quality of their water and its' use in every aspect of their daily lives.They have achieved this by installing a whole house water filter. I will explain some of the benefits of why this investment may be right for you.
First of all, it's obvious that we want our drinking water to be clean, great tasting and safe. But it is the other places in our home that a whole house water filter may be of benefit to us.
What about our showers? Studies show that our bodies absorb more chlorine and other chemicals through our skin and inhalation during a shower, than drinking water from the tap.
Chlorine in our shower water can have a drying effect on skin and hair.
Our pores open up during shower, making the absorption of chemicals into our skin easier.
Because of chemicals vaporizing during a shower, more chemicals enter the air in our homes during a shower than from any other source. Is a whole house water filter starting to make sense?
I even read a report that chlorine may be a cause of breast cancer. The report stated that women with breast cancer were found to have 50-60 percent more chlorine in their breast tissue than women with healthy breasts. Showering in chlorine free water reduces the risk of respiratory problems, due to the inhalation of chlorine while taking a shower. I guess you did not realize chlorine did more than make your water taste like a swimming pool.
The benefits of a whole house water filter goes beyond the bathroom.
What about cooking?
Cooking in filtered water just makes sense. Would not you think that food would taste better if it was cooked in clean clear water that is void of chlorine and all the other chemicals that threaten our water?
I have personally tested the difference in taste when making coffee using filtered versa non-filtered water. You can honestly taste the difference. Well known coffee shops would not think of making their signature coffee with non-filtered pool water. Why should we feel any different about making our morning cup of coffee.
Chlorine and other chemicals that are removed as they enter our homes will not be imbedded in our clothes when we wash them. And when we use our dishwashers, because of the higher temperature of the water, chlorine can enter the air, just like when we are taking a shower.
In conclusion, I'll bet you never thought about the water you use for purposes other than drinking, was so important. Because of the increasing abundance of chemicals and other impurities in our water supplies, whole house water filters are becoming even more important in promoting a good healthy lifestyle. Consider installing one in your home today!
