August is National Water Quality Month and it’s the perfect time to make sure that you have clean drinking water in your home. It’s a good idea to first have your water tested. Even though your water may be treated, it can still have some impurities. In addition, treated water means chlorination which is not safe water to drink.
One of the simplest ways to ensure that your water quality is the highest possible is to have a water purification system installed. There are many reasons why this is a good idea. A whole home filtration system protects your pipes as well, at the same time as ensuring that you have clean drinking water. While National Water Quality Month is a great reminder to have your water tested, as a water filtration specialist, Reynolds Purified Water can tell you how often you should have these tests done, depending on the source.
Once you’ve decided to have a system installed, one of the key questions is where to put it. Many homeowners are concerned about spending the money to filter the water throughout the entire home rather than just to have clean drinking water. There are many benefits to doing so, however. One is the longer life of your pipes. Another is the benefit of water quality in your shower and bath. Since your skin will absorb the water and everything in it, safe water for bathing is important as well. In addition, removing chlorine will extend the life of your clothing when it’s laundered.
Of course, National Water Quality Month is about more than ensuring that you have clean drinking water in your home. You also want to make sure that you are putting safe water back into the environment. Be careful of the things you put down your sink or toilet.
