Why Treat The Water In Your Vail Home?

From your bathroom to your kitchen to your washing machine, we use water every day for many different things. But water doesn't come into our homes ready for use or consumption. Depending on where your water comes from and where in Vail you live, the water you use in your home can originate from a variety of sources and can contain anything from particle matter to bacteria.

Benefits Of Water Treatment

Most water that flows through homes and businesses has already gone through a general water treatment facility, but that doesn't mean it's totally pure. Installed water filters are designed to provide finely tuned water treatment.

Drinking filtered water can do more good for your body than you realize. Filtered water removes most contaminants that make it through general treatment facilities, including:

Chloride

Most municipalities use chemicals to sterilize tap water. Chlorine and chlorine byproducts such as trihalomethanes (bromodichloromethane, chloroform, etc.) can increase the risk of rectal cancer, colon cancer, and bladder cancer.

Heavy Metals

Your water can contain arsenic, barium, lead, mercury, and uranium. The consumption of these has been linked to an increased risk of the development of several types of cancer.

Aluminum

Municipal water supplies can be unfiltered or poorly filtered, which may lead to increased consumption of aluminum, a metal that has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease and more.

Bacteria

Filters can remove dangerous bacteria such as E.coli and coliform.

Every high-end restaurant you've ever eaten at likely had a premium water treatment and filtration system. Water that contains fewer contaminants like heavy metals or other chemicals makes for better tasting drinks and more appetizing dishes. 

You'll be able to taste the difference in your spaghetti after the addition of a water treatment system to your home and in your coffee first thing in the morning. Because the water itself will taste better, your family might even be encouraged to drink more water and stay hydrated.

Water treatment positively benefits the planet and your body.

The average American uses over 250 bottles of water a year-- that adds up to 38 million bottles being tossed into landfills annually. Not only does drinking bottled water mean more plastic in the environment, but it could also mean more plastic in our bodies. 

A study analyzed 259 bottled water bottles sold in several countries and found that 93% of them contained “microplastic” polymer particles.
