Water feeds life into the home. It provides the family with life sustaining energy, hydration, and nourishes our organs. Water also keeps our clothes clean, our lawns green, and is used to wash everything. Having clean, pure healthy water ensures a clean household, and implementing a reverse osmosis system into the home is one of the best investments a homeowner can make to add value to the house, and to provide an eco-friendly life source to today’s innovative home.
Clean and Modern
Having safe, healthy water is possible with reverse osmosis. This technology was used initially in the 1950s to separate salt from seawater—a process known as desalination. In fact, bottled water companies rely on reverse osmosis to remove the pollutants from their products today. Now you can have this technology in your very own home. Most units install under the sink and are out of complete sight. Here is how it works: pressurized water passes through the reverse osmosis water filter, removing microorganisms, minerals, silt and pollutants. This waste isn’t captured, but instead is disposed of and sent down the drain.
By the time the water reaches your drinking glass (and stovetop for cooking food), you will have odorless, clean great-tasting healthy water. Most people fail to consider what unseen health risks may be in their water. In a recent article published by Bel Marra Health, they examine the potential dangers of common drinking water. They site a finding by the New York Times in which their scientific research revealed that up to 19 million Americans fall ill every year from drinking tap water.
These culprits are parasites, viruses, bacteria and poisons. Some known invaders found in water include arsenic, fluoride and pharmaceuticals. Investing in a reverse osmosis system will not only protect your family from falling prey to these alarming statistics, but it will add value to your home and propel you to the forefront of innovative, healthy living.
Protect your Home’s Value
As previously stated, water isn’t just for drinking; it also feeds life into the home itself. Hard water is responsible for causing millions of dollars in repairs and heightened utility bills in homes across America. Adding water softeners is a small investment that brings huge returns. Hard water contains calcium and magnesium that impedes the water’s workable capabilities in the home.
Over time, these invaders cause buildup in the plumbing that result in clogging. As is often the case, the pipes need to be replaced and leave the homeowner with hefty bills. In addition to this nuisance, hard water also disables detergents from effectively cleaning your clothes.
The soap and dirt particles get lodged in between fibers that cause fabric stiffening. Not only are you failing to get a thoroughly clean wash, your hard water is diminishing the lifespan of your clothing.
Also, it is proven that when hard water is present, water heaters run up to 30% less efficiently, causing higher utility bills. By adding a simple water softener to your home’s water supply, you will be protecting your home’s integrity, saving money on utilities, protecting your wardrobe, and you will be safeguarding the functionality of your home’s appliances.
Some Final Thoughts
Your home may be an architectural work of art. Or perhaps it is an example of the mastery of Feng Shui. It may have clean lines that breathe life to a perfect minimalist space, or perhaps it displays classical elegance. When you get down to the bottom line, none of these things truly matter if the home’s life source is running rampant with toxins that harm the body, or minerals that destroy the home’s pipes and appliances.
By adding a reverse osmosis system, and implementing a water softener into your home’s water supply, you will be vaccinating your house from devastation, and protecting the health and safety of your family members. But it goes even further than this; for your home will now truly be both externally and internally innovative and pristine.
