3 Reasons Why You Need a Water Filter, Kerrville, Texas

Whether you're getting water from a public distribution system or private well, your supply may contain microorganisms and substances that may harm your health. If you're not confident that it is safe for drinking, cooking, and other household uses, consider installing a water filtration system to protect you and your family.

How a Filtration System Can Improve Your Life

1. Guaranteed Clean Water Supply

Although public treatment facilities regulate the quality of their water, it doesn’t hurt to be extra cautious. Problems in plumbing systems like leaky pipes can allow contaminants into your tap water. A high-quality filtration system can be your second line of defense, protecting your family from pollutants that may get into your water supply long after it has left the treatment facility. 

2. Better Health

Also, treatment facilities disinfect the water by adding chlorine, which not only leaves a strange taste but can also irritate your skin and cause kidney problems. Fortunately, water filters can reduce chlorine levels while removing most of the contaminants, helping keep you and your family safe from illnesses like cholera, dysentery, or lead poisoning.

3. Lower Expenses

While you need to spend on a new water filtration system's installation, you can recover the costs through the long-term benefits it offers. Drinking cleaner water translates to improved health for you and your family, which helps minimize expenses for medical checkups, hospital visits, and medications.

With a water filtration system, you can fill reusable bottles from the tap — which is a safe, reliable, and environmentally friendly option.
