Common Water Filtration System Problems
Water filters are probably the best invention ever created, next to sliced bread that is. Without them our food and water would taste different, our clothes would be harder and our skin wouldn’t be as soft. Yes that’s right, all of these things are related to the quality of our water. Not to mention without a water filter your home’s plumbing will not last as long and could erode away from all the mineral build-up in the pipes caused from hard water deposits.
Effects of Water Filtration System Problems:
- Rusting and corroding pipes: Hard water deposits can eat away at your plumbing and and cause blockages. That is because water picks up different minerals like calcium, iron, and magnesium from the environment. It is important to have a filter so it can prevent this from happening, and even adding a water softener element into your filtration system will help to eliminate the hard water.
- Stained clothes: When water picks up iron and goes into your washing machine, sometimes it will stain your clothes that rusty orange color. With a water filter you won’t have to worry about damaging your clothes.
- Chlorine taste: There is nothing worse than having a glass of water that tastes like a swimming pool. This happens because a lot of water plants treat their water with chlorine to prevent bacteria growth. This also affects how your food tastes as well. Water filters will solve this problem and leave your food and water tasting excellent, just how it should be.
- Dry, itchy skin: After a long day, taking a nice hot shower is the best thing in the world. However, when you get out, if your skin feels dry and itchy that might not be just a dermatological problem, it could be your home’s water filtration system. All those minerals from the hard water stay on your skin, which make it anything but soft and smooth.
