Top 6 Benefits of a Home Water Filtration System

Our region is home to some of the most beautiful lakes, rivers, and bays in the country. But unfortunately, our waterways are far from the cleanest in the nation. This is why there are heavy-duty filtration and water treatment systems in place to help clean the water before it reaches your tap. 

While efficient and somewhat effective, these treatments may not remove all the contaminants. The best way to ensure your home has pristine water is to install in-home water purification systems.

Benefits of Home Water Filtration Systems


In-home water filtration systems are highly effective at filtering nitrates, lead, radium, arsenic, chlorine, and other contaminants from the water flowing through your tap.

Environmental Friendliness

Despite recycling efforts, eight bottles will end up in a landfill for every case of water you buy. With home water filtration, you’ll feel good about drinking your tap water so you can cut down on plastic bottles.

Cost Savings

Bottled water is expensive and often costs $1 or more per bottle. If you drink one to two bottles of water a day, installing a home water filtration system quickly pays for itself.

Plumbing Protection

Your plumbing is tough, but heavy metals, minerals, and chemicals can damage and degrade your pipes over time. Filtering the water flowing through your home’s plumbing goes a long way toward protecting your pipes, appliances, fixtures, and more.

Healthier Skin

Removing chlorine and other contaminants from your water helps protect your skin from irritation, especially if you have sensitive skin or a skin condition like eczema or psoriasis.

Cleaner Clothes and Dishes

Water with a high concentration of minerals can diminish the effectiveness of detergent. Water filtration prevents the buildup of mineral deposits and helps your washing machine and dishwasher properly clean clothes and dishes.

Choosing the Right Water Filtration System

There are many types of water filtration systems, and the Water Doctor team can help you select the one best suited for your needs.

Reverse Osmosis

Reverse osmosis is among the most efficient and effective systems available. Typically installed in a central location within the home, these systems will remove 75% to 98% of dissolved solids.

They operate by pushing the water through a partially permeable membrane designed to separate and remove ions, pollutants, and larger particles from your home’s drinking water. 

Reverse osmosis is highly effective at removing many toxins from water, including:

  • Arsenic
  • Radium
  • Chlorine
  • Lead
  • Nitrates  

UV Water Sterilizers

Bacteria don’t stand a chance when confronted with the penetrating rays of an ultraviolet water sterilizer. UV lights are simple to install and work by obliterating the DNA within bacteria and microorganisms as they pass beneath the light.

UV water sterilizers are becoming increasingly popular, and they’re highly effective at killing bacteria and microorganisms in your water without any chemicals.
