Many people around the world don’t have the luxury of cleaning drinking water. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it’s estimated that only 71% of the world population has access to safe, clean drinking water. To combat contaminated water and keep the entire family safe from harmful metals and bacteria found in some drinking water, many households are opting for a reverse osmosis (RO) water purification system. Several advantages come with owning an RO system, and our team at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Greater Minneapolis wants to discuss a few with you.
1. Saves Money
Are you an individual who loves bottled water? As in, you grab a flatbed cart at your local superstore just to stock up on cases of bottled water? With a water purification system, you won’t have to lug or spend an arm and a leg on bulky water cases anymore. Your home will have clean, pure water running through the pipes for your long hot showers and to cook delicious meals. Not only that, but you won’t have to purchase expensive skin creams or shampoos to prevent dryness. Your water will be all the moisturizer you’ll need.
2. Removes Disease-Causing Contaminants & Metals
According to leading scientists, contaminated water can cause diarrhea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid, and polio. In fact, the WHO reports that contaminated drinking water is estimated to cause 485,000 deaths each year. These stats are alarming, especially when you think about how often your family uses water for drinking and cooking. With a water purification system, you and your family can be protected against life-threatening bacteria.
3. Improves the Taste of Food
You could be the best five-star chef in the land, but if you don’t have adequate water to cook with, your food won’t taste its best. Many of the best restaurants worldwide use a reverse osmosis system in the kitchen, which thoroughly cleans the water, giving it a sweet taste. For residential use, not only will your drinking water taste better, but so will your coffee and tea. When you use municipal water for cooking and brewing tea or coffee, there’s a good chance there are high chlorine traces. And an RO system can remove these chemicals for better tasting and cleaner water.
4. Improves Overall Health
Have you noticed how dry your skin, hair, and nails are right after a shower? Chances are, it has little to do with the type of soap you’re using. Minerals and other chemicals used to clean water can negatively affect your body and overall health, including worsening symptoms of eczema.
An RO system can improve the following:
