Poorly filtered water is extremely frustrating and can have unsanitary effects on daily life. It can impact your drinking, showering, cooking, and almost any other activities that involve water. If you feel your water is unclean, it is a good idea to install a water filtration system for many reasons.
Safer Drinking Water
There is a global epidemic about safe drinking water. Some communities around the world have limited amounts of water to consume because much of it is not safe to drink. Even though drinking unsafe water is not a fatal situation in Texas, it can do damage over time. Water treatments throughout the country and in Texas add in chemicals as treatment strategies. If you have your own filtration system, you can remove the chemicals in your water and make it healthier to consume.
Good for the Environment
To avoid unsafe water, many people choose to buy plastic water bottles. Though plastic water bottles give you healthier water to drink, they are terrible for the environment. You and your family will go through immense amounts of plastic. Last year there were 50 billion plastic water bottles bought in the United States, and only 38% of them were recycled. Plastic water bottles people do not recycle simply add to the immense loads of trash in landfills across the country. Taking 450 years to disintegrate, they will sit in piles of trash for a long time. With a water filtration system, you do not need to use plastic bottles to get safe water.
Save Your Money
By reducing the amount of plastic water bottles that you buy, you will save money. You can make a single payment for a water filtration system, which exponentially reduces your need for plastic bottles. A pack of 24 plastic water bottles costs an average of five dollars. With your whole family drinking them, you could end up purchasing multiple packs a week, leading to an expense that will quickly add up throughout the year. Using a filtration system instead of plastic water bottles for one year will save you a significant amount of money.
