Why You Need a Whole House Water Filtration System
Clean water is essential to good health and cleanliness. However, most Bloomington residents drink chlorine-treated water that contains harmful bacteria, chemicals, and other contaminants. While two-thirds of the earth is covered with water, only a tiny percentage is safe to drink. And while most people assume that the water coming out of the tap is safe, that isn’t always the case.
Filtering the water removes harmful bacteria, heavy metals, and chemicals, which leaves you with cleaner, healthier, and better-tasting water. And the best way to ensure that your whole family gets the benefits of filtered water is to install an entire home water filtration system.
Although there are several water filtration options for your home, many experts recommend a reverse osmosis filter, and here’s why.
While we don’t like to think about it, harmful bacteria can travel through your water and cause diseases and serious ailments. And, face it, you don’t only drink from your kitchen tap. People often get midnight drinks from bathroom sinks, and many pets drink from the toilet. Not only will your water be safer, it will taste better and is better for cooking.
- Eco-Friendly: With a water filtration system, you can stop wasting plastic water bottles. Get clean, pure water right from your tap!
- Clean Water: Clean water isn’t only essential for ingestion; it also helps to keep your body and clothes clean and bright.
How a Reverse Osmosis Filter Works
Reverse osmosis or RO filtration system removes ion molecules by using a semi-permeable membrane separating high-pressure and low-pressure regions to allow certain materials to pass through it. In a RO system, pressure is increased in the chamber with the unfiltered water forcing it through the membrane, which leaves up to 99% of the contaminants behind. The result is that you get cleaner, healthier water right from the tap instead of having to fuss with filtration pitchers or filters that attach to the fixture.

Health Benefits of a Water Filtration System
Most people don’t like to think about it. Still, the fact is that the water coming out of their tap at home is often contaminated with harmful bacteria, which may not make you sick right away, but can build up in your system over time and cause serious ailments.
Maybe you wake up for a drink of water in the middle of the night, or your dog likes to drink from the toilet; either way, your water will be safer and healthier, and better for cooking if you use a home filtration system.
