5 Benefits of a Home Water Filtration System

From staying hydrated to cooking and cleaning, water is an essential part of our lives. Unfortunately, even after treatment, tap water is often loaded with contaminants such as chlorine, bacteria, aluminum, pesticides, herbicides, and more. Furthermore, mineral deposits can damage your plumbing and water-based appliances over time. 

The most effective way to ensure that the water you use daily is as pure as possible is to install a whole-home water filtration system

Here are some of the main benefits of having a water filtration system at home:

1. Save Money

Water filtration systems are designed to remove contaminants from your home’s water supply by reducing water hardness and eliminating sediments and chlorine; this results in taste and odor-free water.

Therefore, you can now cross bottled water off your shopping list. Not only will this save you and your family considerable amounts of money, but you will also be contributing to producing less plastic waste; water bottles can take over 1,000 years to biodegrade!

2. Longer Lasting Plumbing and Appliances 

Your home’s plumbing system and water-using appliances will also benefit from a water filtration system. Minerals, heavy metals and chemicals can build up and damage your plumbing system over time. Consequently, any appliance connected to your water supply will suffer the consequences. 

Filtered water will make your plumbing system last longer and save you money in the long run. Additionally, your appliances will operate more efficiently.

3. Protect Your Clothing and Dishes

Dishwashers and washing machines are two of the most used appliances in a common household and, when damaged, they can be extremely costly to repair or replace. 

By installing a full-home water filtration system, you will soon find that both machines clean more effectively; your dishes will appear cleaner and the mineral buildup will disappear. In addition, your clothing’s colors will remain vibrant over time and the fibers in the fabric won’t break down as quickly, making your favorite outfits last longer.

4. Improve Your Drinking Water

Of all the contaminants found in tap water, heavy metals pose the most dangerous health hazards. Even though most municipal water systems in the United States provide good water quality, they can fail and it is always safer to have a backup arrangement.

Investing in a home water filtration system is investing in your family’s health, all while enjoying the taste of clean, crisp, pure water every time you open the faucet. 

5. Healthier Skin

Water contaminants can have harsh effects on your skin. Our bodies absorb harmful elements through the epidermis, often resulting in irritation and dryness. A whole-home filtration system will remove these impurities, promoting clearer and healthier skin and hair.

Water Dr replaced my well pump and drop piping this week, Their prices were competitive and our service tech Josh was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. He noticed that our well cap was a driller's cap and not a sealed well cap required by code. He also noticed that there was no check valve anywhere along the 280 feet of drop pipe. Our previous well company replaced our well pump back in 2002 and never mentioned any of this. Josh also gave me other great tips on the type of filter to use for my water system and how many times to change it during the year to help prevent the rings in our toilet bowls caused by excess iron. Water Dr just gained a new customer for life Thank you Matt (owner) and Josh for doing such a great job!!!!!!!!!!!

I contacted WaterDR for a mitigation system for a high Radon reading after a home inspection. I spoke directly with one of the technician’s “Joe “ he was absolutely polite and informative. We needed him to come the following day! I have to say they were on time and very professional. After fully explaining everything they immediately began to work. They were excellent, they finished the job in about 3 hours. They cleaned up their debris as if they were never there. I am happy to report that because of the system my Radon level was way below the minimum standards. I would very much recommend this company to anyone. Thanks again for the piece of mind.

After my water unexpectedly decided to stop working one night, I called The Water Doctor and I’m so glad I did. They were at my door the next morning (only because it was so late at night when I called) and got the water running temporarily even though my problems were so severe. They knew exactly what to do and they are so understanding that if you don’t have water you can’t live without it! If you have a water problem and want great service and the best price, these are the only guys to call for a fast and friendly solution.

Amazing service! I would highly recommend this company. Our water suddenly stopped working around 6 pm. We called Water Dr and Joey came out within 15 minutes. He was nice, professional, and very knowledgeable. He worked hard in the dark to make sure we got our pump fixed so that we could get water back ASAP. 5 Stars!

These guys are a pleasure to deal with and will not leave you “dry” …worked till after 9pm to ensure we we’re up and running..and the techs are well versed in their trade! A professional outfit!! They found we had a deep well, and went back to get their “new rig” (at 6pm) and had the pump pulled and changed, system pressure tested, and a new pressure tank fitted In basement and water running by 9:30. Now that’s service!!!!

Woke up to no water. Called Water Dr. at 7:35. Someone was at my house before 9 AM. Workers were friendly and efficient and clearly explained everything. Everything was completed by 10:30 and I was giving clear instructions on what should be done over the next 24 hours. I will definitely be calling them again for any future water needs/issues.
- Mike G.
Josh was awesome. Visited Saturday morning for a service, we needed a system change. Back out Monday, work was clean fast and he explained everything. Highly recommend.
- Malcolm C.
This company was amazing. We are selling our home and the inspection showed well contamination and radon in the basement. They came out on the appointment day and addressed both problems the same day even though it was later in the evening. They were very knowledgeable and explained everything in detail so we understood the process. I would highly recommend them.
- Pamela F.
They are very responsive. I had them install my filter system and now they come to clean. Friendly, honest and organized. THANK YOU
- John B.
Josh and the other technicians at Water Doctor are real experts and extremely knowledgeable. Even better, for the one obscure piece of equipment I had they had little experience with, they admitted they would have to check with someone else in the company before rending an opinion. These guys are honest, smart, ethical and have fair pricing. They won’t sell you in stuff you don’t need, but are honest and will demonstrate why some things need to be replaced. I highly recommend them without reservation.
