Why Do You Need a Whole House Water Filtration System?
The quality of your water can have a long term impact on your health. There are a number of different harmful contaminants in your water that can be filtered out with a high quality water filtration system.
Below you will be able to find some of the most common contaminants.
Lead – Lead is one of the most common and harmful contaminants that is found in our water systems. It is estimated that 1/3 of all the plumbing pipes in the United States contain lead. Lead was contained in plumbing pipes until it was banned in new construction projects in 1986.
However, all plumbing pipes that were already in use were not required to be removed. Lead starts to be released from the pipes as they age. The United States will continue to see a large number pipes with lead leaching into the water system over the upcoming decades. Lead can cause kidney damage, brain damage, low birth weight, nervous system disorders, and a vast number of other serious health problems. Tests for lead in water are not as stringent as you might imagine. The EPA only requires water municipalities to test up to 50 properties in their district every three years. Testing for lead has to be done at the property. Think about how many pipes water has to travel through before it comes through your faucet or shower. If any one of those pipes starts to degrade, they have the ability to start leaching lead into your water. Furthermore, just because pipes are not degraded to the point when they will leach lead into your water now, does not mean that those same pipes will not leach lead 3, 6, or 12 months from now. Getting a water filtration system is essential if you want to avoid consuming harmful lead contaminants. Even if you have a water filtration system, you should try to determine when your plumbing fixtures were manufactured. Plumbing fixtures were allowed to have up to 8% of their total volume be lead and still be labeled as “lead free” until 2014. You should not hesitate to test your water system for lead. Additionally, you should get a high quality water filtration system so you can filter out contaminants such as lead.
PFAS – PFAS are referred to as an emerging contaminant. They have even received the nickname “forever chemicals” because they never leave the environment or your body. Even small amounts of PFAS have been linked to reproductive cancers, thyroid disease, and liver damage. PFAS can be found in all kinds of consumer products like water resistance fabrics, food packaging, paints, carpet, and so many more. PFAS includes a category of more than 10,000 chemicals. The types that have been known about the longest PFOA and PFOS have been banned. It can take years or even decades to ban the use of these chemicals. Even once regulations pass, it can take up to 5 years before regulations limiting the maximum contaminant levels in water to be enforced. It is imperative to take on the responsibility of cleaning your water. The higher quality of water filtration system you have, the more contaminants can be removed.
Chloramines – Chlorine and ammonia are common disinfectants used to treat water. They are highly effective and inexpensive. There are no known short term effects from consuming small quantities of chloramines found in water after being treated. Chlorine is not good for your hair and dries out your skin as well. There have been some experts who have been published stating that long term chlorine consumption may lead to an increase in bladder, rectal, and breast cancers.
Minerals – Minerals such as calcium and magnesium may not be bad to consume in the correct quantities. However, they can speed up the signs of aging and aggravate skin conditions. Most water in Yorba Linda comes from the Colorado River. It has large amounts of naturally occurring minerals which dry out your skin and hair. If you have acne or eczema or other skin conditions, you can expect them to become worse due to the “hard water”.
