Why You Need a Whole House Water Filter
It’s important to drink pure water, but one must not forget about the importance of a whole house water filter and how it greatly protects your long-term health by filtering out heavy metals, contaminants, pesticides, chemical waste, and cancer-causing agents such as chlorine that can soak into your skin in your shower.
We may not want to believe it, but most tap and well water found in the United States is not what you would call “clean”. Most of it contains levels of contamination that range from moderate to heavy. I’m talking about contamination resulting from toxic byproducts of man-made plants, industrial waste, chemical disinfectants, and even minerals that occur naturally in nature. Add to all of this the fact that regulations currently in place for monitoring our drinking water only cover a small amount of those contaminants and you quickly realize the necessity to filter the water in your home.
