There are many ways to get cleaner water for your home this year. But why does clean, filtered water matter so much? Our team takes a look at the top 5 benefits of clean water for your home and family:

Clean Fixtures

There’s nothing more frustrating than starting your spring cleaning and spending 20 minutes trying to scrub the same faucet clean of water spots. Water softeners reduce minerals in your water supply, eliminating visible signs of hard water on your fixtures. That means less time scrubbing and more free time!

Clear Skin

Hard water has negative effects on your fixtures, but it can also negatively impact your skin and hair. Hard water has more minerals than normal and can make your skin and hair dry out more easily. Dry hair breaks more easily and more often and dry skin is more easily irritated and can leave you prone to conditions such as eczema. Filtered or softened water reduces the number of minerals in your water supply which leaves your hair and skin feeling softer and healthier.

Fresh Laundry

Like your skin and hair, your laundry is also affected by the mineral deposits of hard water. When you wash your laundry with soft water (AKA water treated with a water softener or filtration) colors stay bolder and whites stay brighter, longer!

Tastier Drinks

Cleaner water has fewer minerals and other additives that can affect both the quality and taste of your water. Fruit-infused waters will taste fresher and more natural. Making a cup of coffee with clean, filtered water compared to your natural water supply will make your coffee stronger and more flavorful. Even if you aren’t a morning coffee-drinker, clean, filtered water will enhance any beverage you make.

Safer Summers

Spring is rapidly approaching, which means summer isn’t too far behind. According to the Children’s Environmental Health Network (CEHN), the US has seen “a worrisome increase” in childhood diseases that may be linked to chemicals in the environment. With a lack of clean water taking center stage in areas across the United States (such as Flint, Michigan) keeping your water supply as clean as possible can’t be understated.


The skin is the largest organ in the body and our bodies can absorb toxins through dermal exposure. Having cleaner water means you have less to worry about when it comes to outdoor recreation. With clean water, playing in the sprinkler will be a fun and worry-free summer activity.

It goes without saying that installing a water purifier is good for the environment, your health, your wallet.
