5 Benefits of Installing a Whole House Water Treatment System

If you live in the Twin Cities, the question of tap vs. bottled vs. filtered water is largely one of personal preference, not health or safety. The quality of Minneapolis tap water exceeds the federal standards imposed on bottled water. That said, a whole house water treatment system can cleanse your water of lingering chemical elements, such as chlorine, and improve water purity beyond that of either tap or bottled water. Here are five reasons many people choose to install water treatment systems, even when their local water supply poses no health risk.

1. Taste

Some people prefer the taste of mineral-free, pure filtered water, even if their tap water—like ours here in the Twin Cities—is perfectly contaminant-free and safe to drink. In that case, installing a whole house water treatment system is much more cost-effective than buying filtered water by the gallon.

2. Not just for faucets

Even among those who enjoy drinking purified water, many believe it’s only necessary to treat the water they actually consume and will often just install individual faucet filters on their sinks. In actuality, there are many benefits to using filtered water throughout your home, and a whole house water treatment system is the only way to guarantee that every drop of water in your house is pure.

3. Bathing

By removing all traces of chemicals such as chlorine, bathing in filtered water can make your hair and skin softer than bathing in unfiltered tap water.

4. Cleaning

It’s not rocket science: cleaning with cleaner water produces cleaner results. Doing laundry with filtered water can slow the deterioration of clothing fibers, running the dishwasher with filtered water will produce more sparkling dishware, and home surfaces such as bathtubs, countertops, and toilet bowls will require less scrubbing to wipe clean.

5. Plumbing health

Treated water can prolong the life of shower heads, piping, and other water-using appliances by reducing the impact of chemical build-up and hard water deposits. Installing a whole house water treatment system may seem like a big investment, but it can save you thousands on costly appliance repairs and frequent replacements.

  1. My husband and I recently moved into a new home and we have been thinking about updating our water filter system. I’m not entirely sure how old our current system is but I think that it would be a good idea to look into something new. I really like your benefit about taste because I think that taste really does make a difference when it comes to drinking water from the tap.

  2. After reading this article I have learned a lot about treating water in my house. I would love to have water that tasted better, and not have to worry about chemicals. I also like the idea of bathing in purer water, and leaving my hair, and skin soft.

  3. It’s interesting that doing laundry with filtered water can slow the deterioration of clothing fibers! My wife is always complaining that her shirt are starting to fray and come apart. I will have to see if it’s because our water!

  5. I didn’t realize that having your water treated could help you have softer hair or skin after a shower. I can see how this is important since there are chemical in the water that can potentially affect your health.

  6. Thank you for the super informative blog. You wrote that by removing all traces of chemicals such as chlorine, bathing in filtered water can make your hair and skin softer than bathing in unfiltered tap water. I had heard about the benefits of water purification in the pasts, but wasn’t aware of these other great benefits. I am always looking for different ways to keep my skin healthy, so I’ll have to look around for a great system that I could have installed to keep my water clean.

  7. I agree that making sure your water treatment unit is working well can help your pipes stay in good conditions. I can see how doing this can help you save money and enjoy the commodities you have. It makes sense that finding someone who has experience and tools can help you have your unit working for a long time.

  8. My family doesn’t like the water here since we moved five months ago. It was awesome to learn that a whole house water treatment system is the only way to guarantee that every drop of water in your house is pure. We will be sure to install a water system like that so that we can all drink the water!

  9. I didn’t realize that getting a water purification system could also benefit you when bathing. I thought it was mostly just for drinking water, but you mentioned that purified water can make your hair and skin softer. My wife has really sensitive skin, so I’d be curious as to how much getting a purification system for my home could help her.

  10. I would definitely consider installing a water treatment system in my house for the cleaning and bathing benefits. In many ways, this technology will allow you to save so much money in the long run.

  11. you have shared 5 reasons for use water filter at home.I agree with you.filtering water is good to bottled water and tap water is polluted water at the many time.so the water filter use must be better.

  12. Getting a home water treatment system sounds like a great idea. I love the fact that it provides pure, clean water throughout the entire house. Our water is really hard right now, so it’d be nice to change that.

  13. This is definitely very helpful. I’ve noticed that there have been stain buildups on our bathrooms and in the dishwashers due to the mineral-rich water that comes from our well. I wanted to convince my wife to install one of these systems so it would be easier for us to maintain our house and reduce the health risks if in the unlikely chance that our well gets contaminated. Thanks for the great read!

  14. I like how you said that there are people who like pure and filtered water. My family is definitely one of those. We just moved into a new area as well so things are a little bit different. We may need to get a water system installed so we can get the taste of water that we want. We’ll see what we can afford in the near future.

  15. I like how you said that a water treatment system can help keep chemical elements out of your home. Taking the necessary precautions after getting a processor like this would be important. Having a watertight hatch somewhere would be especially important to keep water from leaking everywhere.

  16. I like how you said that having cleaner water means cleaning with it will have a cleaner result. My wife is a bit of a clean freak, but it never occurred to me that maybe our water isn’t that pure. We’ll have to look into getting a water system installed that will ensure that things will always be pure.
