How a Home Water Filtration System Benefits Your House
A home water filtration system that filters contaminants from water as it enters your home has the obvious benefit of providing you and your family with better quality water. But it can also provide benefits for the house itself. Contaminants and additives in tap water can have damaging effects to a home’s appliances and plumbing, but a whole house water filter can eliminate problems before they arise.
There are many types of problem water depending on where you live, and each contaminant in the water comes with its own set of issues. A RainSoft home water filtration system can solve problems caused by:
- Iron – When this mineral is in tap water, it can leave reddish brown rust stains on nearly anything that comes in contact with the water, such as water-using appliances, sinks, toilets, and bathtubs.
- Sulfur – When a home relies on a well or groundwater for its water supply, it may contain sulfur. In addition to the horrible smell it emits, sulfur can stain clothes and fixtures that come in contact with it, in addition to leaving a buildup in pipes over time.
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) – These carbon-containing compounds typically end up in water as a result of negligent dumping, and may originate from motor oil, gas, degreasers, and byproducts of industrial processes. These substances can cause damage to your home’s pipes over time, or can leave deposits that clog pipes over time.
These are just a few of the issues that a home water filter can help to improve which benefits the overall look and integrity of your home. Water filtration systems can also filter out sediment from well water, and additives such as chlorine and fluoride.
