Drinking water quality in Waterloo Indiana is a serious issue. Tap water may contain many contaminants proven to have a detrimental impact on health and wellness. A great way to ensure safe drinking water is through the use of a reverse osmosis system, a water conditioning system that utilizes filter stages to remove contaminants from tap water to provide filtered water on demand. Reverse osmosis systems provide several benefits to the homeowners that use them.
Removal of Contaminants
Reverse osmosis systems remove most of the contaminants found in tap water, including bacteria, pesticides, chlorine, nitrates, arsenic and lead. Using a series of filters, these and other harmful solids filter out of the water supply, resulting in fresh, pure water delivered through a separate tap.
Better Health, Taste and Smell
Many of these contaminants pose serious health risks, including chronic diseases and cancers. Removing them from drinking water reduces health risks to the consumer.
Pure water tastes better. Many impurities impact not only the taste of the drinking water, but the smell as well. Foul odors and chemical smells are prevalent in the tap water supply of many cities. As the reverse osmosis filtration removes the contaminants, the odors are also removed. Better taste and removal of foul smells means that food cooked in the filtered water will taste and smell better, too.
Reverse osmosis systems provide an unlimited supply of clean, great tasting drinking water. Unlike filtered pitchers and purchased jugs of drinking water, reverse osmosis owners enjoy an endless supply of pure drinking water. Because reverse osmosis systems provide filtered water at the tap, storing jugs or pitchers of water is no longer an issue either, freeing up space for other items.
Bottled water is significantly more expensive than reverse osmosis water, even when you factor in the costs of filter replacements. While it is convenient to grab a bottled water for those on the go, the convenience comes at a very high price.
Bottled Water Purity Issues
Reverse osmosis users know where their water came from. They know it is pure, and which water conditioning system purified it. Bottled water drinkers may not be able to say the same. Questions about the safety and purity of bottled water have long been a concern, and with the demand for bottled water continuing to grow, these questions are likely to remain.
The plastic bottles themselves may also be cause for concern. Phthalates are chemicals used in the production of plastics. Plastic water bottles may leak these chemicals into the water during storage. Phthalates cause a number of health issues, including asthma, ADHD, cancers, type II diabetes, behavioral issues and neurodevelopmental issues.
Reverse osmosis owners enjoy easy maintenance on their purification system. RO filters need changed every 6 to 12 months to provide clean, pure, great tasting water. While this is a simple operation for many homeowners, most water filtration companies offer maintenance plans to track and complete filter replacement on the correct schedule.
These and other benefits make a reverse osmosis system a great choice for homeowners in Waterloo Indiana considering water filtration options. The purification, cost savings, convenience and ease of maintenance make reverse osmosis filtration an easy choice. Call Kaufman Well Drilling to set up your system today!
