The Importance of a Home Filtration System

Why should you buy a home filtration system? Why is it important? There are several big reasons why getting a Home Filtration System is important, and you can pretty much break them down into two simple categories: money and safety. 

Money

Let’s start with the biggie, money.  Everyone loves money but hates to talk about it, especially if you want to talk about how they are wasting it and watching money go out the drain!

Money is a big reason people wait on making the decision to buy a Home Filtration System in the first place. What these people don’t realize Is how much NOT having one is actually costing them. The savings you get from a Home Filtration Systems can really add up, especially over the life of a home. 

First, with no filtration, there’s the need to purchase bottled water. Sure, they are very convenient, and one bottle here and there doesn’t seem like much. That cost can really add up. The average case of bottled water costs about $5.  If you are a family of 4 and drinking 2 bottles per day each then you are spending over $500 a year on bottled water and that’s only drinking 24oz or less a day which is not nearly enough. Not to mention If your house is like mine then most of those bottles of water do not get finished because no one ever seems to know whose bottle is whose, so my plants would end up getting all of that left-over bottled waters, which is more waste.

Another cost for other systems that our H2o Concepts Home Filtration Systems do not have is the regular filter replacement or salt bag refills. Filters are not only costly but annoying to change. The bags go to another level of monthly maintenance annoyance. The hauling of the heavy bags from the store to the house and then the loading of the salt into the salt tank and not to mention, the monthly cost of the is around $6 per bag.

The lack of a Home Filtration System is also costly to you on plumbing repairs and new appliances. The energy waste due to your appliances not running as efficiently because of the buildup in your pipes. There is also the added cost of soaps and detergents that results from hard water not allowing soap to lather and work as it is intended.

Safety

The second main reason to add a Home Filtration System is safety. Our water is processed through water treatment facilities, which do alleviate many of the contaminants and they add chemicals to sanitize the water.  This process will not fix hard water which we have here in Arizona, so at the least, you need something to treat the hard water issues. There are also many contaminants that make it past the treatment centers and can cause many illnesses and even cancer. It is not only harmful to drink contaminated water but bathing in this water is just as harmful.  We should drink on average 8 glasses (8oz) of water a day. If your water tastes and smells better, it is more likely that you will consume more. 

Environmentally safe

We have the greenest rated system on the market. Not only do we want you to be safe, but we want to help protect mother nature as well. Bottled water is a huge waste problem we are facing today. Only about 1 in 5 bottles reach a recycling center. Each bottle will sit in a landfill for thousands of years, slowly releasing the toxic chemicals. Sadly, most will end up in our rivers, streams, and oceans before even making it to a landfill, therefore, adding to the massive amount of trash we already have polluting our waters. There is now more plastic than fish in our oceans.
