In America, it’s not uncommon to buy bottled water. In fact, for many American’s, this is the number one way they consume drinking water. If they don’t want to spend the money on bottled water, then they’ll choose tap water. While we’re fortunate to have drinkable water in the United States, the reality is that there are still plenty of problems and bacteria linked to drinking tap water. If bottled water has its issues, and tap water isn’t the healthiest to drink, where does that leave a person? Fortunately, there are alternative solutions. At Coastal Energy Water & Air, we offer RainSoft products to all of our customers.
With a water filtration system installed into your home, you can avoid many of these frustrations. Keep reading to learn more!
Why is Tap Water Bad? Why is a Water Filtration System Better?
It’s true that many people think drinking bottled water is better than drinking tap water, and while that may be true, there are still many dark sides to bottled water. First and foremost, bottled water is an environmental hazard. It takes 450 years for a plastic water bottle to break down and disintegrate. Not only is this lifetimes of landfill plastic that will long outlive our great, great-grandchildren, but it’s also unhealthy for the earth to absorb. Additionally, and unknown to popular belief, bottled water can be filled with tap water, as it’s highly unregulated. According to a study done by The Environmental Working Group, 38 contaminants were found in ten of the most popular water bottle brands. Inside were industrial chemicals and fertilizers. It’s also shown in studies that water bottles increase the chance of breast cancer.
Another downside of water bottle consumption is that it’s quite expensive. There is a significant increase in the cost of making a water bottle and filling it, versus the cost it is sold for. With high inflation prices and popular demand, the Earth continues to be soiled by the challenging degradable substance. Meanwhile, those drinking it are susceptible to dangerous health risks. This is the reason why so many people have turned towards a water filtration system. Not only is it healthier, but the contaminants that are so often found in bottles of water, as well as tap water, are filtered out. Additionally, it’s much cheaper in the long run than it would be to buy bottled water for life.
One of the other benefits of a water filtration system is that it extends well past drinkable water. Hard water with all of its damaging minerals is also found in our appliances, washers, and showers. It’s the water we brush our teeth with, bathe our children in, and wash our clothes in. With a complete water filtration system, you can be sure that none of these harmful toxins ever make it into your shower, washer, dishwasher, and more.
If you can afford the investment, experts recommend a whole house filter, which will attach to the main water line. This will clean all of the water that enters your home, making every source safer and more sustainable. With clean water, you’ll be less likely to need to replace your plumbing and your appliances, which can erode over time due to the corrosive properties of the common minerals called calcium and magnesium.
