Water Filtration Systems Improve More Than Just Drinking Water

July 19, 2011

Do you have a water filtration system in your home? Here are a few things you may not know about water:

  • If you’re using city water, chances are it will travel as much as three miles underground after it is tested to get to your home.
  • Less than 1% of the world’s fresh water is readily accessible for direct human use.
  • The American Society of Civil Engineers gave the U.S. drinking water infrastructure a grade of D- in 2009.
  • A recent report from President Obama’s Cancer Panel recommends installing in-home water filtration to reduce exposure to environmental elements that increase the risk of cancer.
  • Nearly 45 million people in the United States have private wells. As the homeowner is responsible for the water’s quality, the EPA recommends yearly testing to detect contamination problems.
  • The earth does not create new drinking water. What you drink today has been recycled over and over.

Although many consumers choose to buy water or a simple filter, which ensures that which they drink is better quality, water is used for more than drinking; it’s used in cooking, bathing, cleaning and more. In fact, water touches practically every room in your home and therefore even affects how your appliances, fixtures and plumbing look and last.

A home water filtration system can be a more cost-effective solution long-term. We work with Kinetico Water Filtration Systems when installing them for several reasons:

  • Kinetico units remove more impurities and perform more efficiently with lower lifetime costs.
  • Kinetico products are powered by the force of moving water for on-demand, non-electric operation.
  • Kinetico systems are more reliable, durable and long lived. Backed by the most comprehensive warranties in the industry.
  • Kinetico’s local water experts will customize the right solution for you and your home.
  • Kinetico’s systems minimize waste, energy usage and the impact on our environment.
