We all need clean water running through our pipes. You drink it, you cook with it, you even shower and wash your clothes with it. But, as you probably already know, without clean water, you couldn’t do any of those things. So, if you’d like to learn more about water purification and filtration and why we need it, then you’re in the right place. Our plumbing professionals at Canal Winchester Plumbing & Drain will help you understand the different forms of water filtration and help you choose the best source of water filtration for you, your home, and your family. 

Should Your Water Be Filtered? 

Unfiltered water can be toxic to our bodies in many ways. It can be filled with metals, chemicals, pesticides, and parasites. So, naturally, no one wants to put dangerous toxins into their bodies. But, most of us are probably wondering, “Isn’t my tap water already filtered?” Well, technically, yes. However, it goes through a rigorous filtration cycle before it makes its way into your faucets. Nevertheless, harmful metals and toxins can be reintroduced as it runs through your home. Especially if your pipes are old and have not been recently replaced or cleaned. You may have heard that boiling your water will kill the chemicals and bacteria living in your water. Unfortunately, this is only partly true. Boiling your water may kill some of the bacteria. But, it still leaves many harmful toxins that need to be filtered out. So, remember that the water you use daily must go through a more thorough filtration system for our water to be safe to consume.  

Is It Necessary To Have Whole House Filtration? 

Technically, no, but toxins from your water can be inhaled and even absorbed through the skin. This means that, if you don’t have filtered water in every spout of your home, you could be in danger of putting unhealthy chemicals into your body. So, when you shower, wear the clothes you just washed, or let your kids run through the sprinkler, wouldn’t it be nice knowing that no matter where your water comes from, it is clean and safe? That’s why our plumbing professionals at Canal Winchester Plumbing & Drain are ready to help you to have clean, filtered water throughout every spout in your home.  

Does My Water Need To Be Softened? 

Did you know that hard water can damage your pipes, causing them to become corroded and, eventually, break down? Not to mention, it will dry out your skin and hair, and it can even cause damage to your appliances that use water to function. Including your washing machine, refrigerator, and dishwasher. Additionally, hard water requires you to use more soap and detergent to get your clothes, dishes, and body clean. Therefore, using water softeners throughout your home can release calcium, magnesium, and other metals and chemicals from your water, making it purer and softer.  

We often take advantage of the fact that we live in a country where water filtration and purification are readily available and at our disposal. Don’t forget that although our water is filtered, it does not mean it’s always clean enough to safely consume. This is why a home purification system is exactly what you need to give you peace of mind. Letting you know that you, your home, and your family are consuming safe, uncontaminated water throughout your home. At Canal Winchester Plumbing & Drain, we’ll help you choose the right options in water filtration to keep your family happy and healthy.
