The Different Water Treatment Systems and What They Remove
To understand the importance of water treatment, you must first understand what water treatment does.
Activated Carbon Water Filters
The activated carbon in these systems removes contaminants in water by bonding with them when the water passes through. These are highly effective at eliminating:
Carbon filters are the number one most effective system for removing trihalomethanes (THMs—poisonous chlorine byproducts) and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs). They're also number one for filtering out pesticides and herbicides.
Reverse Osmosis Filter Systems
RO systems utilize a semi-permeable membrane that allows water molecules to pass through while blocking other molecules. These typically remove many more types of contaminants than carbon filters. In addition to what carbon filters remove, RO systems also filter out:
There are some NSF-approved carbon filters designed to remove these contaminants as well. But many carbon filters let these contaminants slip right through.
Water softeners make water more gentle for your skin and household appliances. They do this by removing excessive minerals like magnesium and calcium that make the water "hard."
The Benefits of Treating Your Water At Home
Now, let's look at the ways you can benefit from these water treatment systems.
Protect the Health of Your Household
Just look at all the toxins listed above that water filtration systems remove. As you can see, there are a number of hazardous ingredients you and your household will consume in your unfiltered tap water. Filter these out of your water and eliminate them from your life!
Protect Your Appliances
Hard water is so named for a good reason. It's extremely damaging to any household appliances that normally come into contact with it (sink fixtures, dishwashers, washing machines, etc.). It's also not very nice to your skin, scalp, and clothing.
Save Money and Protect the Environment
The most common alternative to home water filtration is buying case after case of bottled water. It doesn't take long for that to outweigh the cost of installing a water filtration system, even an expensive one.
Besides that, it's extremely bad for the environment. 70% of these bottles end up in landfills—where they'll remain for 500 years until they finally decompose.
The Importance of Water Treatment
The importance of water treatment for your household can't be understated. What's more important than the health of your family and the environment?
