Have you ever wondered if the water coming into your home is as good as it can be? Perhaps you are worried about chemicals like chlorine, orthophosphate, or fluoride that get added to the municipal water system in the Hamilton area. Or perhaps you have issues with “hard water” leaving spots on your dishes, and your hair is not feeling as silky as you’d like it to. Now let’s be clear: Hamilton’s municipal water is extremely safe – but that doesn’t mean it can’t be better. 

If you want the best water you can get for your family in your Hamilton home, consider getting a whole-home water filtration system. Here is what you need to know about these systems and the reasons you might want to consider getting one. 

What do we mean by whole home water filtration system?

When you get a built-in water system, you can get one that works for just one faucet – usually the one you most commonly get your drinking water from; or you can get one that supplies filtered water throughout your entire home. 

Whole home water filtration systems – sometimes called point-of-entry taps – are different and installed where the main water line comes into the home. This means you’ll get filtered water for drinking, cooking, taking a shower, doing the laundry, and more. 

Here are a few reasons to consider having a whole home water filtration system installed:

Reduce minerals and chemicals in your drinking water

Certain chemicals and minerals can make your tap water taste or smell funny. Some people may also have allergies or intolerances to these chemicals and would prefer not to drink their tap water. Additionally, certain minerals and contaminants can leave annoying residue on your dishes, skin, and hair. 

With a whole home water filtration system, contaminants such as chlorine, fluoride, calcium, iron, and sulphur are greatly reduced. 

Healthier hair and skin

Some people may feel that filtered city water is healthier to drink and wash in. Chemicals such as chlorine can dry your skin and hair as it pulls moisture from it. Over time, chlorinated water can leave you with drier skin and hair than you would like. 

It helps your appliances last longer

Think about how many appliances you have in your Hamilton home that have water coming into them: your washing machine, toilet, dishwasher, water heater, refrigerator (if it includes an ice maker), etc. When unfiltered water comes into these appliances, it can leave behind rust and mineral residue, which can cause damage and shorten the lifespan of these appliances. 

When you have a whole home filtration system, you can relax knowing that only filtered water is getting to these appliances, meaning they are more likely to last longer.
