What is a Whole House Filtration Solution?
A Whole House Filtration Solution is a comprehensive water treatment system designed to purify water as it enters your home. Ensuring that every faucet and appliance receives clean, treated water. Our system stands out for its unique approach. It not only removes a high percentage of contaminants like fluoride, heavy metals, and pharmaceutical residues but also enhances the water's structure using advanced mineral crystal bioceramics.
The system employs a specialised advanced carbon block filter manufactured in the U.S, which effectively removes a wide range of contaminants, from heavy metals to pesticide residues and even microplastics larger than 2 microns. Additionally, the bioceramic mineral crystals improve the water's molecular structure, making it more beneficial for your health. This dual-action filtration ensures that every drop of water in your home is not just clean but also structured for optimal well-being.
The 5 Main Problems with Tap Water
Although it’s great that just about everyone in the UK has access to running water, the bad news is that it’s not necessarily healthy and clean. Here are four of the main problems with tap water, it may contain:
1. Chemical Additives and Contaminants
Tap water undergoes various treatments to remove the majority of contaminants. However, this process also introduces a range of toxic chemicals like aluminium for sediment removal, chlorine for disinfection, and DPBs (by-products of disinfectants) that react with natural organic matter. These chemicals can have various health implications, including endocrine disruption. That’s a major issue, because hormones run the show. So disrupting the flow of hormones spells havoc for our health and wellbeing.
2. Pharmaceutical Residues
After being consumed, many pharmaceuticals are not fully metabolised and end up being flushed away. Traditional wastewater treatments aren't equipped to fully remove these substances. Allowing them to enter natural water bodies and eventually our tap water. These drug residues can act as endocrine disruptors, affecting both human and aquatic life by interfering with hormone functions, such as growth, reproduction and metabolism.
Fluoride is commonly added to tap water for dental health. This practice is increasingly scrutinised for its questionable benefits and potential risks. Studies indicate that excessive fluoride can lower IQ and lead to fluorosis, a condition affecting tooth enamel. Given these concerns, many advocate for advanced filtration methods to remove fluoride from drinking water. Even Nobel Prize-winning scientist Dr. Arvid Carlsson has stated that fluoride is a drug and should not be added to tap water.
4. Environmental Pollutants
Modern agriculture relies heavily on chemical inputs like pesticides, herbicides, and fertilisers to maximise crop yields. However, these substances often leach into the soil and eventually find their way into groundwater and surface water sources. Over time, these chemicals can accumulate in our water supply, posing risks like hormone disruption and even certain types of cancer.
5. Heavy Metals and Their Effects
Heavy metals can creep into our water systems via a wide variety of methods. For example, they can be naturally occurring in the earth's crust and leach into water sources. Another way that heavy metals can leach into our water is via industrial waste. Manufacturing processes often produce heavy metals as by-products, which can contaminate water if not properly managed.
Also the use of pesticides and fertilisers in farming can introduce heavy metals into nearby water bodies. Additionally, corroding infrastructure, like older plumbing systems made of lead or copper can corrode over time, releasing heavy metals into the water supply. Finally mining for minerals can disturb heavy metal deposits, allowing them to enter water systems. Heavy metals can have various impacts on our health such as:
- Chlorine: Long-term exposure is linked to higher cholesterol levels, increased risk of bladder disorders, and reproductive problems.
- Arsenic: Exposure can lead to diarrhoea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and even death. Long-term exposure may result in skin, lung, and bladder disorders.
- Mercury: Highly toxic, it can lead to blindness, brain damage, nerve damage, and other severe health issues.
- Lead: Poisonous to almost every organ, it has been associated with stunted growth, developmental issues, and brain damage.
- Dioxins: These are linked to respiratory problems, lesions, and long-term effects include disruptions of various bodily systems.
7 Key Benefits of a Whole House Filtration Solution
Installing a Whole House Filtration Solution offers a multitude of advantages that go beyond just clean water. For example you may experience the following benefits
1. Improved Health
One of the most significant benefits is the positive impact on your health. By removing a wide range of contaminants like heavy metals, fluoride, and pharmaceutical residues, the system ensures that the water you consume is free from substances that could harm your body. This is particularly beneficial for those with compromised immune systems or specific health conditions that make them more susceptible to waterborne diseases.
2. Better Taste and Odour
Nobody likes water that smells or tastes bad. A Whole House Filtration Solution removes elements that contribute to unpleasant taste and odour, such as chlorine and organic matter. This makes the water more enjoyable to drink and can also enhance the flavours of the food you cook.
3. Long-term Cost Savings
While the initial investment in a Whole House Filtration Solution may seem steep, the long-term cost benefits are substantial. By providing clean, filtered water from every tap, you eliminate the need for bottled water, which can be expensive and environmentally unfriendly. Additionally, cleaner water can extend the lifespan of your household appliances by preventing the buildup of mineral deposits, saving you money on repairs and replacements.
4. Environmental Impact
Whole house filtration systems are more eco-friendly compared to bottled water, which generates plastic waste. By reducing your reliance on bottled water, you contribute to less plastic pollution and lower carbon emissions associated with its production and transportation.
5. Skin and Hair Health
Filtered water is softer on your skin and hair. The removal of chlorine and other chemicals means less dryness and irritation, leading to healthier skin and softer, shinier hair.
6. Enhanced Home Experience
Filtered water improves the quality of your daily activities, from cooking and brewing coffee to bathing. The absence of contaminants and chemicals can make these experiences more enjoyable and healthier.
7. Increased Property Value
Installing a whole-house water filtration system can be an attractive feature for potential homebuyers. This could increase the perceived value of your property.
