5 Reasons to Invest in a Water Filtration System for your Home.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), some 2.1 billion people lack access to safe, drinking water at home. While billions of people have gained access to basic drinking water and sanitation services since 2000, these services do not necessarily provide safe water and sanitation.
Many homes, schools, and healthcare facilities do not have access to safe drinking water and sanitation. As a result, many people, especially children under 5 years old, fall sick and die from water-borne diseases, including diarrhea.
Generally speaking, while most people from urban centers have better access to clean and safe drinking water than those in rural communities, this does not apply to all homes. To protect your family and children’s health, it is wise to invest in a water filtration system for your home. Here are the benefits for doing so:
- Save money on bottled water.
How much does a credible brand of mineral bottled water cost these days? Over $12 for a pack of 6 1.25L bottles, if you catch it on discounted offer. Considering that each family member is advised to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day, 6 bottles of water is not a lot. It can be consumed by a single person in just a few days.
Bottled water is expensive, and the costs multiply in terms of the time needed to head out to the convenience store and the likelihood of purchasing other items while there, which are not necessities. Cutting the trip to the convenience for bottled water will reduce the costs, and take away the inconvenience.
Bottled water is also the main source of ocean plastic pollution. With many of drinking water contained in a single-use plastic bottle, avoiding drinking from bottled water not only saves on costs, it can also help save marine species that normally get choked or suffocated when they ingest plastics in the oceans, including discarded bottles.
- Hot water always available.
A water filtration system that offers hot and cold water means hot water is always available at home. When you need tea, or hot chocolate, or soups, clean, safe, filtered hot water is conveniently available.
- Remove impurities and kill 99% of bacteria.
One of the best reasons to install a water filtration system at home is having the assurance that you are drinking clean and safe water. Filtration systems can remove impurities from water, which, if ingested over time, can lead to a host of health issues. Filtered water can also make it alkaline by restoring the pH balance to the water, thus, activating many health benefits such as slowing aging, reducing the risk of high blood pressure, and reducing the risk of bacterial infection.
- Food tastes better with clean water.
Clean water is best for cooking any meals, especially soups that your family love. Food prepared at home is usually more nutritious than those bought from food courts or hawker centers, and is in most cases more generous in serving. It is encouraging to see family members enjoy eating home-cooked meals, and it could begin with clean water.
- Your kids get healthier and don’t fall sick often.
There is nothing more horrifying and more stressful to parents than seeing their children sick. Aside from hospital bills, a hospital confinement is also emotionally and physically draining. Giving your children clean and safe water to drink will reduce their chances of falling sick. Alkaline filtered water especially comes with healthful goodness that offers a better immune system for young and old alike.
Remember, drinking clean and safe water is a foundation for good health. And good health is a foundation for many positive experiences in life. Talk to us today on an easy way for you to install a water filtration system in your own home.
