The Benefits of Good Water Quality: Water & Health Are Linked
Water Filtration, Water Conditioning, Water Softener…
Water is complex, can have many potential contaminants and there is no “one size fits all” solution to water problems. The water treatment professionals at Bi-County Inc can help you sort through the in-home water treatment systems. Together, we will investigate your options for treatment at the faucet level (point-of-use) and the entire house/building (point-of-entry) and find the right products to treat your water quality issues!
Bad water is bad for you, but safe water is key to life — and good for you!
Not one drop of the water we consume every day is comprised exclusively of hydrogen and oxygen molecules. It contains some amount of minerals, impurities, microorganisms and other contaminants. These substances may be present in only trace amounts, and don’t necessarily have negative health effects.
The human body is, after all, 70% water, and although a human being can survive a month or more without food, a week without water can be fatal. According to the CDC, the top causes of disease outbreaks related to drinking water are Giardia intestinalis, hepatitis A, norovirus, and Shigella. Bad as that sounds, it’s far from a complete list. There are also health risks related to water contaminated with organic and inorganic matter, other bacteria and viruses and other pollutants. Still, water is essential.
Appliances Benefit, Too
High quality water is good for your home and appliances. Water conditioning can save you money by helping major appliances operate as efficiently as possible, while preventing clogs in showerheads, faucets, and drains making them last longer. The amount of dish and laundry detergent you use can be cut by 50%, or even more, if you use softened water. You can also lower wash temperatures from hot to cold without a drop in performance. As for hot water heaters, running hard water through the units cut efficiency by up to 48 percent and when softened water is used, the units maintain their original factory efficiency rating for as long as 15 years.
