Use A Water Filter To Create Yummy Beverages

Nothing beats the summer heat better than an ice-cold beverage. Thanks to the invention of indoor plumbing, we get to enjoy moments like that all summer long.

A homemade beverage is best. But did you know that the quality of water can alter the taste? Water filters were designed for this purpose.

They purify the water so you don’t get ingredients you didn’t ask for. Filtration systems and methods come in different shapes and sizes. If you need a filter, here’s an idea of what each water filter can do for you.

What Is Hard Water?

hardwaterIt’s possible you’ve heard people talk about having hard or soft water in their home. What this means is they have a higher concentration of minerals that cause a buildup in their plumbing.

Depending on the concentration, it’s not harmful to drink but the flavor is noticeably different.

Water softeners, otherwise known as an ion exchange unit, work by trading high levels of calcium and magnesium ions with sodium ions.

The water has to pass through the mineral tank that contains the sodium. This has been one of the most common ways to soften hard water.

Whole House Water Filters Help

It not only filters out high levels of minerals but chlorine and other impurities as well. Each step works by removing these impurities with different processes. The steps are called pre-filter, chlorine removal, the charcoal filter, and waste removal.

It really benefits your home to have clean water. Hard water tends to build up and cause blockages in your pipes. Bad or foul-smelling water will damage your laundry and make it unpleasant to wash within the shower. By installing a whole house water filter, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you have clean water accessible anywhere in the house!

What About UV Water Filters?

The rest of the system also requires little cleaning or parts to replace. It’s safe, environmentally friendly, and requires little maintenance. What more could you ask for? Signs for bad water can include a weird taste or smell.
