Whole-Home Water Filtration Installation in Orange County
Ever think about just how many substances your body absorbs from the water in your home? Many homeowners don’t realize the water that makes its way out of the faucets in their home can contain dangerous chemicals that can have adverse effects on their health. Water filtration is an incredibly popular addition many people install on the faucet in the kitchen, but you’ll hardly ever find a system tacked onto the bathroom sink. What many fail to realize, however, is that hard water—water that contains contaminants—is as dangerous on the outside of your body as it is on the inside. Install a whole-home water filtration system so you can always have clean water no matter what room you’re in.
Avoid These Toxins with Water Purification
Throughout the United States, various forms of water purification take place at the government level. Some of these systems, however, don’t address the toxins that still make their way into the local water. Because of this, homeowners often run to markets where they can buy bottled water at exorbitant prices so they can avoid drinking the water in their home.
The substances most commonly found in drinking water are:
- Fluoride: This is a neurotoxin and an endocrine disruptor. It can harm the thyroid gland and calcify the pineal gland.
- Chlorine: This is a reactive chemical that bonds with water, which includes the water in your gut. It produces poisonous hydrochloric acid upon bonding.
- Lead: This is toxic to virtually every organ and can cause such problems as developmental issues, stunted growth, deafness, behavioral problems, learning disabilities, and brain damage.
- Mercury: This is incredibly toxic. Among its complications are brain damage, blindness, nerve damage, cognitive disability, impairment of motor functions, headaches, weakness, muscle atrophy, tremors, mood swings, memory loss, and skin rashes.
- PCBs: These were banned in 1979 but they still occur in landfills, posing a threat to the environment. Testing on animals has found that PCBs are associated with cancer and can negatively affect the immune, reproductive, nervous, and endocrine systems.
- Arsenic: Despite being poisonous, it is used in various industrial processes. Contamination of the environment can result from improper waste disposal or from poorly planned wells that hit a natural source. Some of its effects include skin cancer, lung cancer, and bladder cancer.
By installing a water purification system, you can eliminate these contaminates from your drinking water.
Choosing a Whole-House Water Filtration System
There are plenty of units you can buy. The most suitable type for your home depends on the quality of the water and the problems you’re trying to eliminate with the filtration system. Before investing in a whole-house unit, it’s critical to know what you need to filter out. Start by conducting a water test or getting a quality report from the water department.
Another factor to consider is the flow rate of faucets and appliances. This will help you to choose a whole-house water filter system that can keep up with the demands of usage in your house. If you have a lot, for example, you’ll need a higher flow rated system.
The selection of home water filters varies broadly, and they use a few different methods to keep your water clean. Like drinking water filters, home filtration systems have a variety of filter media ranging from reverse osmosis and carbon to advanced next-generation filter technology, among others.
Ultimately, there’s no universal filter that suits every situation. Your choice should depend on factors such as what’s in the water and what your unique demands are. No matter the concern, we can help you choose a whole-house water filter that best suits your needs.
