Millions of Americans drink bottled water, and people in the United States collectively spend more than 12 billion dollars on plastic water bottles each year. While bottled water is a convenient choice for homeowners, it is not the best option for the environment or your health. Bottles that are not recycled put more strain on the planet’s already compromised resources. Plus, studies have shown that some plastic water bottles can leak DEHA, a known carcinogen along with BPA, which is suspected of causing neurological and behavioral problems in fetuses and children. Additionally, BPA has been linked to brain, breast, and prostate cancer along with numerous other health issues.
As a result, our Orange County and Los Angeles plumbers suggest installing a whole home water filtration system. While many households use a filtered water pitcher or kitchen faucet filter system, these options can become cumbersome and not practical for long-term use. Reverse osmosis removes toxins from tap water, but the cleaning process uses too much water. Our Orange County and Los Angeles plumbers know that installing a water filter that runs through the whole house is a better option, and they can install a filtration system that cleans water the instant it enters the plumbing system. The system can be sure to remove chlorine and other harmful toxins, leaving you with the freshest water possible.
