Home Water Filtration And Treatment Tips For Your Family
When it comes to helping you care for your family and give them a healthy home, those of us at Griffin Plumbing take our job very seriously. That is why your local Santa Maria plumbers have put together a list of home water filtration and treatment essentials we recommend you evaluate around your home, and consider upgrading in order to create a healthier living space for your family.
Do Some Detective Work
The first step you can take to protect the health of your family is to have your plumbers come out and thoroughly inspect your water supply. This includes checking the condition of your plumbing system, assessing your water pressure, testing your water for contaminants, looking for any leaks, clogs or roots in your pipes, and checking the quality of your current fixtures. All of these factors can greatly affect the quality of your water and, consequently, the health of your family.
Filter Your Water Supply
There are a few ways to go about filtering your water supply. The first is a whole-house water filtration system that removes pollutants and contaminants from all of your water. Whether you are cooking, drinking, bathing or cleaning, all of your water is free and clear of troublesome particles that tend to be present in home water supplies.
If you are looking for a solution to improve your drinking water, you may want to check into under-counter home water filtration systems that install beneath your kitchen sink, or a faucet mount filter that attaches to your faucet fixture. A reverse osmosis filter is a popular option. These systems remove specific contaminants and leave you with great tasting, odorless, and safe drinking water, but often use a lot of extra water in their operation.
If your main concern with your water quality rests in your bathroom, you may want to consider a chlorine filter showerhead or carbon filter for your faucets. The chlorine filter showerhead removes the chlorine from your shower water, while the carbon filter in your faucets absorbs many pollutants from your water, giving you a safer home.
Soften Your Water
Another great way to keep your home healthy is by installing a water softener. How does this help? A water softener essentially makes your water more slippery, which reduces the ability of any contaminants (like heavy metals or minerals) to stick to your fixtures, bath and shower walls, and even your skin. Instead, what you get is softer skin and less need for caustic chemicals, like acidic lime and calcium removers, to clean up your bathroom.
