Depending on the area in which you live, the water that comes out of your tap can have a variety of contaminants, from fluoride to heavy metals and various other organic and man-made chemicals and pollutants. Luckily, installing water filtration systems for clean, healthy water, is quick and easy, if you have some plumbing experience.
Chlorine is used in Municipal supply to kill contaminants, but it has no effect on heavy metals and it makes the water taste terrible. Installing water filtration systems in your home will provide you with clean, safe and drinkable water that tastes good too.
Borehole water or water piped from from a local dam or river may be fine for washing in, or even fine if boiled, but you’ll need filtered water for drinking. If you have a household with more than two people, installing water filtration systems with your kitchen sink and bathroom sink, will ensure easy access to drinking water for everyone.
Rainwater collection and supply systems are becoming increasingly popular in South Africa. However, there is more to it than installing a rainwater tank and the basic plumbing. Ideally, you will also need to install a water filtration system to clean all water supplies. You need water filtration systems in all kitchen and bathroom plumbing if there is any chance of small animals or birds getting in the tank.
Water filtration systems are now core plumbing installations. As such, water filtration equipment and installation is highly affordable and offered by all good plumbing contractors. There is no need to take chances with your and your family’s health. No need to suffer the awful taste of often over-chlorinated water or worry about pollutants and chemical or other contaminants.
Last, but not least, with home water filtration systems, there’s no need to rely on bottled water supplies or contribute to the environmental cost of what comes with that.
