Your water filter may have served you reliably so far but the technology in this field keeps improving. With an upgraded filter, you may be able to get rid of many more contaminants and disease-causing organisms. You should consider an upgrade for your water filter, as well as the installation of water softeners, to enjoy some of these benefits.
Get Rid of Bad Taste and a Lot More
Many people think that as long as the water is clear and has no bad taste or smell then it's safe to drink. However, there are plenty of other harmful things that could be lurking in water including chemicals, rust, and sediments. Some of these can be the result of buildup that is left behind by hard water in your filter. Upgrading your filter can get rid of these. Additionally, upgrading to a whole-house filtration system will keep particles caused by hard water away from appliances.
Save Some Money
Upgrading from the under sink water filter to a whole house filtration system can help you to save money that you spend on soap, detergent, and energy bill. A whole house filtration system will ensure that there are no hard minerals in the water going to your shower, washing machine, dishwasher, etc.
If your washer and dishwasher are running on hard water, they will require a lot more soap. Additionally, these machines also run more efficiently when they use soft water. This will mean saving money on energy since you won't even have to use hot water.
Lower Plumbing Costs
Filters that are installed at the point of use can be expensive to maintain since you'll need more than one. Additionally, faucets, drains, shower heads, and other plumbing that carry hard water may experience a buildup of lime and scales. These buildups can lead to blockage and will decrease the lifespan of the associated fixtures. You may also have to bring in a plumber to regularly fix these problems.
With soft water in your whole house, you'll be less likely to experience these problems and this will be convenient in terms of time and money.
You can have the system in your house checked out by an expert in water treatment services. These experts can give you recommendations on whether or not you should upgrade your filtration system and what benefits you'll enjoy as a result. Ensure that the system is also installed by a professional to guarantee that the system meets your needs.
