water dripping from chrome faucet into glass cup

More and more people are becoming aware that drinking unfiltered tap water poses potential health risks. As a result of this newfound knowledge, they’ve switched to using filtered water systems on their kitchen faucets. Fewer people realize that similar health problems exist from the water used for showering and hygiene. Because of this, faucets and shower appliances usually go unchanged, leaving everyone at risk 

By showering with unfiltered water, you expose yourself to harmful, life-threatening chemicals. Even though you can’t see or taste them, chances are you’ve noticed the signs of tainted water.

This will give you some insight as to the things that are in your water and what you can do to make it healthier. We’re sure that after learning more, you’ll understand why it’s so important to install a water filtration system in your home.

Unfiltered Water Is Full Of Harmful Elements

Unfiltered water poses a big threat to all of those that come in contact with it. Whether it be from drinking tap water, using it to cook, clean, shower, or anything else, you’re still exposed.  Truth is, no matter where you are, it’s possible that your unfiltered water is full of chemicals, many of them go unnoticed for years as they don’t cause any immediate damage. In fact, unfiltered water is home to many of the following harmful elements:

  • Lead
  • Chlorine
  • Chloramines
  • Mercury
  • VOCs
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Herbicides
  • Pesticides

Skin Absorbs Chemicals 

We all know that city treatment plants and facilities work to clean tap water and keep it safe for consumption, but this is all the treatment plants are on board to do. Harmful bacteria and other elements in unfiltered water aren’t only a threat because of the bacteria you can drink.  It’s also important to know that our skin is capable of absorbing these harmful substances. That’s what makes topical treatments and skincare products so effective. However, it also means that our skin absorbs the harmful chemicals found in water. Furthermore, because of our circulatory system, these chemicals can be distributed throughout our entire body. Because of this, you want to make sure you are using a water filtration system throughout your Pompano Beach home. 

Many people have installed a water filtration system to their kitchen faucets because they worry about the effects of harmful chemicals entering their bodies. However, showering in chlorinated water may expose us to more chlorine and other chemical byproducts than drinking water. 

When we shower, we inhale the chlorine, and other chemical byproducts found in our water. Consider also, that warm water opens our pores, making our skin more absorbent. 

Considering these facts, you can see why it’s vital to consider a water filtration system in Pompano Beach for your faucets as well as the showerheads throughout your home.

Unfiltered Water May Pose Greater Risks to Children

Studies reveal that children who drink and shower in unfiltered water may develop other illnesses and health conditions as time progresses. Because children are more likely to consume unfiltered water, they are more susceptible to the harmful elements that water treatments can’t remove. If you have children in your home, you’ll definitely want to consider adding a water filtration system to multiple areas throughout the home.
