Sanitary tap water, available on-demand, is one of the most important yet overlooked features of the modern home. Yet, while the water coming out of the tap is technically sanitary, it may not be as clean, clear, or good-tasting as it should be. That’s where a water filtration system, professionally installed by the team at Axsom Air, comes in.
Our plumbers install a wide variety of water filtration systems, including reverse osmosis (RO) systems, whole-home water filtration units, and water softeners. In this blog, we’ll review just some of the reasons to have us install one in your home.
Why should you get a water filtration system?
While public water is treated prior to arriving in your home, it’s not possible to remove everything found in the public water supply. This can include things like nitrates and pesticides (from agricultural runoff), arsenic (from pumped groundwater), and lead (from aging pipes and infrastructure). Of course, water can also transmit pathogens and disease.
There’s a saying: if you’re not using a filter for your water, then your body is acting as the filter! Safety is one of the primary reasons homeowners decide to make the upgrade to a water filtration system. The systems we install can easily filter out contaminants and bacteria, leaving your home with clean, purified water.
To prevent the transmission of disease, many municipal water supplies are treated with chemicals to disinfect the water. Chlorine is a commonly used disinfectant that kills pathogens and protects homeowners from contracting bacteria that cause waterborne diseases such as:
- E. Coli
While chlorine does its part to fight the bad bacteria, your drinking water can be left tasting like a swimming pool or smelling unpleasant. If you are looking for better tasting water, our quick water filter installation can clean your water starting right away, making it more enjoyable to drink.
