The safety of tap water is often a matter of technicality. You and your family won’t drink the water if it doesn’t taste good. However, you probably already know that water is the healthiest beverage to drink. If you already drink bottled water or filtration pitcher, there is a treatment method that could improve your water’s taste.
Water Treatment System Benefits
Plumbers install water treatment systems for your home include two major types – under the sink for single fixture use or point-of-entry for whole-home use. The former is a reverse osmosis system that completely purifies the water of bacteria, protozoa, viruses, and chemical contaminants, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
Whole-home filtration systems that also soften the water vary in how much they can process out of the water depending on their filter opening size. Some may use microfiltration, ultrafiltration, or nanofiltration. Ask your plumber about the options available for your home.
Save Money on Water Bottles
If you rely on bottled water to improve tap water you may spend hundreds of dollars a year on these options. Buying water bottles is notorious for wasting money and contributing to plastic pollution.
Getting a home water treatment system allows you to use reusable containers and fill them up at the tap.
Even if you use a water pitcher with a filter inside, it may not have as fine a filter as a reverse osmosis system or a home water treatment system.
Reduce Harmful Chemicals and Organisms in the Water and Improve Taste
As noted, such as reverse osmosis, can remove chemicals and living organisms from tap water that even city water processing plants miss. By removing these products, your water will taste better straight from the tape and be safer to drink.
Preserve Plumbing Fixtures
Lastly, if you opt for a whole-home water treatment system that includes softening, you could save your plumbing, too. Hard water can lead to tiny holes in pipes or mineral buildup in water heaters. Softening the water prevents these problems, which could save you in plumbing repairs in the future.

Part of your plumbing system is the water that enters your home. This water supplies all your plumbing appliances. However, it also is the same water that you drink from your refrigerator dispenser or kitchen tap. If the thought of unfiltered tap water makes you think twice about filling your glass, consider contacting Best Service Plumber to have water treatment systems installed in your home.
What Is Water Treatment?
Water treatment includes both purification and filtration. Filtration is the simplest form of treatment and involves sending your home’s water supply through a series of filters to remove particles, minerals, and unnatural flavors. This treated water then supplies your whole house with better flavored and softer water. The filtered and softened water protects your home’s pipes and provides you with better tasting water all around your home.
Purified water goes through a reverse osmosis process to completely remove as many dissolved solids in the water as possible. The additional time required for purification versus filtration means that you can only have purified water from individual taps that each have a reverse osmosis system installed on them. This type of water is best for drinking. So, you only need to install these devices onto taps that supply drinking water.
Why Does a Plumber Need to Install Water Treatment Devices?
Because both home water filters and purification devices are complex, they require a plumber for installation. These systems are much more powerful in their filtration and purification capabilities than over-the-counter systems that screw onto a faucet or pitchers that only filter a few cups of water. Therefore, if you want more water treated in your home, you need to have a plumber provide the equipment.
