If you're in the process of building your new home, now's the time to get all the extra gadgets you're going to need. A whole-house water treatment system is one of those gadgets. You might not think you need one, but you actually do. You might even think that you can get by with a water filter on your kitchen sink, but you actually can't. If you want to make sure you get the highest quality water in your home, you're going to need a whole-house water treatment system. If you still don't think you need one, here are three reasons that will change your mind:
Keep the Chemicals Out of Your Body
The water that comes into your home is probably loaded with chemicals and bacteria that are simply not healthy for you. You could put a filtration device on your kitchen faucet, but that would only remove the chemicals from the water that flows from that faucet. Unfortunately, chemicals are in all the water, not just the kitchen water. Not only that but drinking the water isn't the only way that those chemicals get into your body. In fact, each time you take a shower or bath, your skin absorbs some of the water – and whatever is in the water. That means, if you don't have a whole-house water treatment system, your skin is absorbing some of the harmful chemicals and bacteria that are found in your water.
Help Your Favorite Shirt Last Longer
Your water doesn't just contain harmful chemicals and bacteria. It also contains rust. Each time you wash your clothes, you're washing them in rust, which can tear apart the fibers and wear out your clothing much faster. Unfortunately, that means your favorite shirt is going to wear out faster too. You can help your favorite shirt last longer by installing a whole-house water treatment system in your home.
Enjoy Better Tasting Drinking Water
If you hadn't noticed, not all municipal water is pleasant to taste. In fact, some municipal tap water can be downright unpleasant tasting. Unfortunately, you might not realize that until after you've moved into your home. If you have your home water treatment system installed while your home is being built, you'll never have to worry about tasting unpleasant water. You'll get clean, good tasting water from day one.
Don't get stuck with unpleasant, chemical-laden water in your new home. Have whole-house water softeners installed and always enjoy fresh, clean water.
