water filtrationWater filtration is a great thing to implement in your home’s water supply. There are several methods of doing so, and a local plumbing company can probably do it for you in just a day or two. However, there are some cons as well. In this post, let’s discuss the pros and cons of water filtration; because the more you know, the more of an informed decision you can make.

Pros

The pros of water filtration were listed briefly above, but there are significantly more than that. You can ensure that with water filtration, your entire family is consuming safe water. This could be from the shower to the kitchen sink; at any source, your water is completely safe. Additionally, with water filtration, you ensure that you’re not dealing with hard water. This water is water that is full of minerals and can cause stains on your dishes or make your showers not very comfortable. With water filtration and softeners, you avoid the issue of hard water altogether.

Cons

We’re going to be honest here, installing water filtration systems throughout your entire home can be somewhat expensive. You are essentially paying for every single drop of water to be filtered before use. However, there is a solution to this! You can actually invest in water filtration on specific taps but not on others. For example, if you never use your guest bathroom, there really is no need to implement water filtration in this area. You can save a pretty penny by designating that certain areas don’t need the filtration.

Whatever You Decide

Having water filtration implemented in your home is a safety measure that we at General Plumbing would suggest. It ensures so much safety and security in the water that you consume every single day.
