This is Why Water Treatment Systems Should Be in Every Home

Water treatment systems are essentially filters for your entire home: screening out minerals, chlorine and other impurities from the water in your plumbing system. Here in Rancho Santa Margarita, water treatment systems used by the city are fairly effective, but they’re not perfect. The sea air and water from the Pacific can leave trace amounts of salt in our drinking water, leading to a brackish taste. Furthermore, while small amounts of chemicals won’t usually affect your health, they can still impact the quality of your life in subtle yet definable ways. A good water treatment system can prevent all of that.

Here’s a short list of reasons why water treatment systems should be in every home.

  • Cleaner drinking water. If you need a good direct example of the benefits of water filtrated, fill an ice cube tray with tap water, then fill a second one with filtered water. After they freeze, fill a pair of glasses with them. You can see how cloudy and gray the tap water cubes are, compared to the clean transparency of the filtered cubes.  That translates to improved taste not only for your drinking water, but for any cooking you do that involves water as well.
  • Cleaner bathing water. You might notice a hard, crusty deposit on your bathroom faucet or shower head. Now imagine yourself bathing or showering with the same water that created that build up. Those are hard water deposits, and they can leave your skin feeling rough and irritated over time.  Filtered water leaves you feeling cleaner, and your skin feeling softer after you’ve bathe.
  • Cleaner laundry. Similarly, clothes washed in filtered water tend to feel softer, last longer and retain their bright colors better than clothes washed with unfiltered water.

Those are serious considerations, especially in coastal areas like ours. No matter how good the civic system, the ocean still brings impurities to our drinking water that are impossible to escape (the ocean isn’t going anywhere, after all). This is why water treatment systems should be in every home. Here in Rancho Santa Margarita, water treatment systems can be installed by the experts at Saddleback Plumbing.
