Benefits of Water Treatment

Although U.S. water supplies rank as one of the safest in the world, some contaminants still can enter the drinking water after it has left the treatment facility. Installing a water treatment system offers you more control over the quality of your water.
What is Water Treatment?
Water treatment is a process for filtering or chemically treating water. There are two modes of filtering:
1. Point of Entry – utilizes water softeners and whole house filter systems
Benefits of a water softener
Removes minerals that cause hard water. (Hard water – which means more iron content — uses 50-80% more soaps, detergents, cleaners and soap-related products)
Uses less detergent and keeps clothes whiter
Reduces harsh effect on fabrics and skin
Improves rinsing performance, making things easier to clean because of less soap buildup
Benefits of a whole house filter
Removes sediment from incoming water source
Prolongs life of appliances and pipes
Helps water heaters work more efficiently
2. Point of Use – utilizes products like under sink water filtration including reverse osmosis.
Benefits of reverse osmosis water filtration
Removes harmful contaminants such as arsenic, lead, sulfate, chlorine, VOCs, rust, sediment and more
