Tips For Enjoying Clean Water This July
It’s summer. That means trips to the beach, picnics, fun times with friends and cooling down with a refreshing beverage. There’s nothing like a cold glass of lemonade to beat the heat – but what you might not realize is that the taste of your lemonade all depends on the quality of your water.
If you have hard water in your home, it may be affecting your summer experience in more ways than you think. This post will talk about some ways to handle hard water in your home – and help you make that perfect glass of lemonade.
What Is Hard Water and Is It Safe?
What is hard water, exactly?
If water is considered “hard,” it means that it has a lot of hard minerals in it. This can include anything from calcium to magnesium, all of which can have an impact on your health and your plumbing.
While not toxic, these minerals can leave a bad taste in your mouth, and they can be harmful to your hair and skin. If the water in your house leaves behind a powdery white substance when it dries, you have hard water.
Consider a Whole House Water Filter For Your Home
A whole house filter, like the name suggests, filters hard water throughout your house. That means that the hard water in your kitchens, laundry, and bathrooms will be filtered – as opposed to an individual sink or fixture.
Filtering the water in your whole house can be great if you struggle with the issues that come with hard water. In the kitchen, filtered water will have a better, cleaner taste. It will also leave fewer water spots on your cookware.
In the bathroom, the filtered water will have a healthier effect on your skin and hair. And in the laundry room, filtered water will be gentler on your clothes and delicate fabrics. For the most complete filtering solution, a whole house filter is the way to go.
A Revolutionary Alternative to Traditional Filters – UV Water Filters
Sold on the idea of a whole house filter as a hard water solution? We can’t blame you. There is one type of whole house filter that we have to tell you about. UV filters use ultra-violet rays to kill germs and bacteria in the water, as well as filtering out hard water minerals.
A single UV unit is enough to filter the water for your whole house, channeling softened, sanitary water to every room in the house. UV water filters are a relatively new, up and coming water filter technology that uses UV light to eliminate any pollutants in your water.
They can be a little expensive at the outset, but they are well worth the price for the long term reliability – not to mention all the health and wellness benefits that come from having filtered water throughout your house.
Concerned about hard water in your home? A whole house filter could be the best solution. We recommend looking into UV filters as a modern, safe and totally reliable way to filter and sanitize the water in your home. You will notice the difference in the taste, as well as the way your water cleans, immediately.
