So, you’ve finally built your dream home. Along the way, you’ve thought of everything – from the color of the walls, to the furniture, to the kitchen appliances. But have you given much thought to your home’s water filtration system? If you haven’t, you should. After all, your custom home deserves more than southern Ohio’s hard water.
Home water filtration systems have a multitude of benefits. First and foremost, they promote health for you and your family. Hard water contains chemicals and minerals that can dry out your skin and hair which can lead to premature aging. It can also be detrimental for family members with sensitive skin.
Additionally, mineral deposits can shorten the lifespan of your custom home’s plumbing. Calcium, magnesium and other minerals can corrode pipes over time which can lead to costly repairs. And did you know that home water filtration systems are good for the planet? You’ll never have to buy plastic bottles of water again once you invest in a water filtering system. And that means less plastic in the landfill.
Ready to take the next step? Below are our five top choices for home water filtration systems.
