Why Water Filtration is Important

Drinking strictly bottled water can be an expensive habit, but tap water doesn’t taste very good. When it comes down to it, many people just drink water out of a tap because it is convenient and free. However, there are a variety of health consequences that come from drinking water that isn’t filtered with a system. At Ben Franklin Bay Area, we recommend having a filtration system installed in your home to prevent the following health consequences and improve the taste of your drinking water.

There are many contaminants that come through your pipe straight into your drinking glass. In many areas throughout the U.S.,  that isn’t filtered with a water filtration system. Lead can impair the healthy development of children and can cause hearing issues and high blood pressure among adults. Another common contaminant in tap water is asbestos. Asbestos is known to cause many forms of cancer like colon cancer and mesothelioma.

How do you avoid drinking unhealthy water?

What many people don’t realize is that they don’t have to spend hundreds on bottled water to prevent the unhealthy consequences of drinking water that hasn’t gone through a water filtration system. One of the most affordable options for homeowners is to have a filtration system installed in their home that can get rid of the harmful contaminants in the water they drink.
