Are Water Purification Systems Worth It?

In this post, we answer the question, “are water purification systems worth It?

Water purification systems and water filtration have surged in popularity as a solution for achieving cleaner and safer water in our daily lives. However, the question that often arises is whether these systems truly deliver on their promises.

Let’s delve into the major benefits they offer and explore why they are indeed a valuable investment.

Filtration Versus Purification

We wrote this post because it’s a common search topic online. However, the terms “purification” and “filtration” are also some of the most confused ones today.

It is important to note that in the United States, “water purification” or “purified water” only refers to water that has been treated through reverse osmosis or distillation.

Water softeners, water conditioners, water filters and house water filtration systems do not purify water unless they use reverse osmosis.

Bottled water companies can use the terms spring water or drinking water without reverse osmosis or distillation.

Better Beverages

From that morning cup of coffee to the sparkling ice cubes in your drinks, water quality plays a pivotal role in the taste of your beverages.

Uner-the-sink reverse omosis systems elevate this experience by providing water that enhances the flavors of your favorite drinks. Not only does this contribute to a more enjoyable beverage experience, but it also leads to cost savings. By optimizing the taste of your drinks, you might find yourself using fewer additives or even skipping the costly habit of buying bottled beverages.

Environmental Impact

One of the most significant advantages of under-the-sink water purification systems lies in their contribution to environmental preservation.

By eliminating the need for disposable plastic water bottles, these systems play a role in reducing plastic waste, which often ends up in landfills or contributes to pollution. The reduction in plastic bottle production also means fewer greenhouse gas emissions and a lighter ecological footprint. With a water purification system, you’re not only benefiting your own health but also making a positive impact on the health of the planet.

Resource Conservation: Saving Oil and Water

Versatile Use: Meeting Various Household Needs

Water purification systems offer great drinking water.

Additional whole house water filtration systems address issues for the entire house. They cater to a range of household needs, from providing clean water for your pets to nurturing your houseplants and maintaining your fish tanks. Additionally, the filtered water from these systems can be used for steam irons, humidifiers, and even washing your car. The versatility of water filtration systems ensures that you can enjoy the benefits of clean water throughout your daily activities.

Healthier Skin and Hair: Potential for Improved Well-Being

The impact of water quality on your skin and hair health is significant.

Carbon hard water filters can potentially provide softer water that is gentler on your skin and scalp. Imagine enjoying showers that leave your skin feeling revitalized and your hair looking shinier and more manageable.

With a carbon water filtration system, you might experience fewer issues like dryness, itchiness, or scalp flakiness, leading to healthier and more vibrant skin and hair.

Appliance Longevity: Extending Fixture Lifespan, Reducing Costs

Water filtration systems not only benefit your personal well-being but also contribute to the longevity of your household appliances. Cleaner water helps prevent mineral buildup and corrosion, which can extend the life of appliances like water heaters and fixtures. By reducing the wear and tear caused by impurities, you’re not only saving on repair and replacement costs but also minimizing unnecessary waste.

Caution: Understanding the Market

It’s important to note that not all products on the market provide the same level of filtration. Water softeners and water conditioners don’t purify water, but they do filter it.

Many products available at stores like Home Depot or offered by local plumbers are water conditioners. These devices will require routine maintenance and can effectively resolve hard water issues while removing most of the chlorine and ammonia. However, they might not eliminate all chlorine and ammonia. Most of these devices use activated carbon that isn’t silver-coated, which can lead to bacterial growth. Some manufacturers might not provide this warning to consumers, as they charge premium fees for service calls.

Water Softeners and Filtration Stages

Water softeners, on the other hand, excel at removing hard water but might not eliminate chlorine and ammonia. A softener typically employs a single stage of filtration. In contrast, a conditioner employs two stages. A Purity Bay Whole Home Water system boasts an impressive ten stages of filtration (not purification).

Ideal Drinking Water with Reverse Osmosis

For those seeking purified drinking water quality, Purity Bay’s reverse osmosis system is an exceptional solution. This system efficiently removes an extensive array of contaminants, including lead, arsenic, fluoride, chlorine, herbicides, pesticides, mercury, nitrates, nitrites, selenium, trihalomethanes, barium, cadmium, and chromium.

Since a reverse osmosis purifies water, we usually combine it with our 10-stage, offering homeowners 15 stages of peace of mind.
