Improve the Quality of Your Water with a Filtration System

Having access to water is important for daily hydration, but it’s also essential for cleaning, cooking, and good hygiene. Many people are shocked when they discover their water isn’t as pure as they think. They decide to contact professional plumbers to install water filtration systems. Is the water in your Sterling, VA, home as healthy as you think?

Isn’t All Drinking Water Healthy?

Municipal water treatment facilities do their best to filter contaminants from public water sources. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), contaminants include physical, chemical, biological, or radiological substances in water.

Yet, water quality can change once the water leaves the treatment facility and travels through miles and miles of pipes to your home. Contamination can occur if the water encounters old pipes or other degraded plumbing parts like fittings and casings at your home. Those who get their drinking water from a private well are responsible for ensuring water quality and safety. The five most harmful substances found in household drinking water include:

  • Aluminum
  • Arsenic
  • Chlorine
  • Fluoride
  • Lead

Benefits of Water Filtration Systems

Contaminant-free water is the primary benefit of filtering your household water, but there are other benefits. Filtering your home’s drinking water can protect you and your family from ingesting harmful substances with known health risks.

  • Filtration removes harmful bacteria and lowers the risk for gastrointestinal troubles
  • Filtration helps reduce the risk of some cancers and neurological diseases
  • Your water tastes and smells better

How to Choose the Best Water Filtration System?

Home filtration systems are plentiful and choosing the right one depends on your needs and goals. For example, if water purity concerns you, a reverse osmosis water filtration system is a good option. Those who want to improve their water quality will find an activated carbon system is an excellent choice.

To find a system that meets your needs, start by contacting a professional plumber. Call Falcon Heating & Air Conditioning, to learn more about your water filtration system options.
