Everyone needs safe, reliable drinking water. Local water treatment facilities do a good job of providing an adequate water source for the city-wide water system. However, they don’t filter out the chemicals and other contaminants that may enter the water pipes between the treatment plant and your faucet.
Water entering your home may have low levels of pesticides, lead, and metals. Well water is especially susceptible to contamination since it is not treated by a water treatment plant. Minerals in the water, which is called “hard-water”, can also be a concern.
Some of the contaminants frequently found in drinking water can include:
While the health risks associated with these contaminants are the result of prolonged exposure to high levels of them, most people will agree that consuming any amount of these known poisonous substances is not desirable and would choose to safeguard their family’s health by reducing their exposure to toxins of this nature. One of the best ways to prevent contaminants in your water is a water filtration system. There are many options on the market.
“Hard water” contains more minerals in it than ordinary water, which can damage your plumbing system by clogging pipes and making it difficult for soap and detergent to dissolve. The accumulation of these minerals (called “lime scale”) causes stains on fixtures, fogginess in glasses and spots on dishes. If you have any of these issues, you should consider installing a water softener. Water softening is the process of removing substances like calcium and magnesium from the water in your plumbing. Softening your water will raise the efficiency and expand the life-span of everything that needs plumbing in your home. Baker Brothers offers several options that can help you prevent or eliminate the effects of scale build-up and hard water:
Traditional whole house water softeners remove calcium and magnesium ions from water and replace those ions with a potassium or sodium ions. This eliminates the possibility of limescale build-up. Using a whole house water softener improves water quality, which you’ll notice in the taste and clarity of your water.
In addition to better water quality, there are other benefits of a whole home water softener:
The Flow-Tech Home Anti-Scale System is an environmentally friendly, cost efficient, maintenance-free alternative to conventional water softeners. This water treatment device controls lime scale build-up and removes pre-existing lime scale. The system was developed using state of the art technology, extensive research and the experience of a team of chemical engineers and scientists. Flow-Tech Systems has created the most advanced chemical free water treatment system available today. This system is now available for residential properties.
The Flow-Tech Home Anti-Scale System offers many benefits such as:
You don’t just drink the water from your pipes, you cook with it and bathe in it, too. Your body absorbs a lot of water during baths or showers as well. Baker Brothers recommends a whole house water filtration to eliminate the contaminates and chemicals in your homes plumbing system.
Whole house water filters are different from water softeners. They may not eliminate scale build-up, but they do reduce all kinds of other contaminants and bacteria. If you’ve noticed the water in your home is not clear, smells bad, tastes bad, or makes your skin and hair dry, then you should consider a whole home water filter. Whole house filtration can last your home more than a decade and it doesn’t need maintenance.
Here are some of the benefits of whole house water filters:
