Living in the South West Florida Area has its advantages in many aspects. However, water quality has never been one of those benefits.

Tap water coming directly from any tap in your home contains natural minerals from ground-water that is gathered along the way. While some of these minerals are harmless to your home, many more can cause damage to your home’s appliances, pipes, and even your dinnerware. Limestone, for example, causes a buildup that can corrode pipes, and the heating elements in your washer, water and more depending on what you have in your home. Your pots, pans, and dinnerware suffer from a white buildup that can prove difficult if not impossible to remove. Reports from the USGS dating back forty years ago report this to be a problem because of the sources of the water. Water filtration can remove limestone and other minerals. Having your water tested will tell you what is present in your water and to what degree. This will help to prevent this damage that can cause hundreds if not thousands in damage over time.

The amount of water it takes to make one bottle of water is also more. There is a waste in the making, it takes water to produce water and how often do you see half drank bottle just lying around? Can you imagine that there are at least 89 billion liters of water bottled every day? Water filtration systems will the issues causing alarm in our environment.
