5 Surprising Benefits of Having a Whole Home Water Filter
Did you know that there are more benefits to having a whole home water filter than just clean drinking water? Read this article to learn more.
Although water treatment plants work vigorously to make your water safe, there are still harmful contaminants that remain. Some of the problems that arise from having contaminants in your water are bad taste and smell, sickness, and deterioration that brings down the value of your home. (1) The best way to remove these contaminants is to install a powerful home filter. Here are some additional benefits of having a whole home water filter in your home:
Longer-Lasting Plumbing and Appliances
Believe it or not, whole-home filtration can extend the life of your water-using appliances and plumbing. This is because some contaminants, such as corrosion-related bacteria and suspended solids, can make your water more corrosive. If these contaminants don’t get filtered, even brand-new pipes and appliances could be damaged. (2)
Healthier Skin and Hair
The steam from your shower makes you more susceptible to inhaling and absorbing contaminants in your water. (3) The risks are that contaminants, like chlorine, can irritate your skin and even cause birth defects and cancer. (4) They can also ruin your hair by chemically changing its texture, making it too dry, coarse, and breakable. (5) A home filter is the most effective way to get rid of contaminants that damage your skin and hair.
Filtered water helps preserve your clothes when you do your laundry. It also helps them smell better. Unfiltered water could have contaminants, like calcium and magnesium, that leave residue on your clothes and make them feel uncomfortable and smell unpleasant. They can also fade colors and break down fibers. (6)
You can save money on your water bill and have cleaner dishes if you use a whole-home filter. By reducing mineral build up and a host of other contaminants in your drinking water, you can prevent dirty-looking streaks and stains on your dishes and glasses. You will also need less water and soap to clean your dishes. (7)
Contaminants in your drinking water, such as pathogenic organisms, can affect the overall taste, odor, and color of your food. Water that you use for cooking can also have health-harming contaminants, so it’s best to remove those to prevent you and others from getting sick. (8)
The Robust Synergy Science Filter™
Whether you have city water, well water, or hard water, the Synergy Home Filter™ will make it safer, cleaner, and better tasting with its superior, 5-stage filtration. Take a look at what each stage of filtration can do for your health.
First, your water goes through the Sediment Prefilter, which has a 20-micron pore size that catches larger contaminants such as silt and sediments. It also helps lengthen the lifespan of the main filter (stages 2 through 4).
In the second round of filtration, the water enters the main filter and uses an Activated Carbon Filter, which has outstanding taste, odor, and chlorine reduction abilities. It removes contaminants like chlorines, haloacetic acids, trihalomethanes (THMs), heavy metals, herbicides, and pharmaceuticals.
Stages Three and Four
Your water then goes through intense KDF 55 and 85 filtration, which removes stubborn contaminants, such as chlorine, heavy metals, and hydrogen sulfide (that rotten egg smell and taste).
In the final stage, your water ends up in a Post-Micron Filter, which does one final removal of bacteria and protozoa and collects flocculated and precipitated metals, ensuring that your water is free from any harmful contaminants or smelly particulates.
Remove More Than 30 Stubborn Contaminants
Overall, the Synergy Home Filter™ removes all of the following contaminants and heavy metals from your water:
- Inorganic contaminants
- Microbial contaminants
- Pharmaceutical contaminants
- Sodium fluoride
- Chlorine and chloramines
- Heavy metals (mercury, lead, iron, arsenic)
7 Years of Whole-Home Filtration
Unlike other systems, the Synergy Home Filter™ media is set in reticulated foam. The reticulated foam prevents channeling throughout the media, which can reduce its ability to filter over time. By preventing channeling, the Synergy Home Filter™ is guaranteed to filter at full efficiency durings its entire 7-year life span.
