Your town or city provides your home with water. It enters through the main water supply pipe and flows to your sinks, showers, and toilets. But here's the thing: that locally supplied water may not be as clean as you would hope. Standards for water treatment are not updated as often as they should be, and the water can absolutely pick up contaminants between the treatment plant and your home. A good solution is to have your own home water treatment unit installed. But what are the benefits of doing so? They are best summarized by the acronym SIPP.
How much money do you spend on bottled water each year? If you are worried about contamination in your tap water and therefore do not drink it, you probably spend quite a lot on bottled water! Even $5 a week spent on water adds up to $260 a year. Think of everything else you could buy with that money! When you install a home water treatment unit, you can stop buying water and save instead.
Many of the so-called contaminants in municipal water are minerals. These minerals are heavy, and if water sits in the same place for a while, the minerals start to settle out, forming scale in your pipes. Water treatment systems remove these minerals so that scale forms much more slowly. Your pipes will last longer, and so will any appliance in your home that uses water. This includes your coffee maker, ice maker, and your fridge's water dispenser.
Protection From Disease
Bacteria can also be found in some municipal water supplies. Often, it is accidentally introduced down the line after the water leaves the treatment plant. This can lead to illnesses like E.coli. A water treatment unit removes bacteria from the water, protecting you and your family members from the disease.
Peace of Mind
Finally, you get the peace of mind associated with knowing that you're doing the best thing for your family. You don't have to worry whether the public water standards are good enough or whether someone else makes a mistake. You know you have a good system in place for your own safety.
