Four Ways a Water Filtration System Can Save Asheville Homeowners Money

ASHEVILLE, N.C., Feb. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Four Seasons Plumbing, a family-owned and operated plumbing company serving the Asheville and Hendersonville areas, is educating homeowners on the benefits of installing a home water-filtration system.

"Whether it's saving money, helping reduce your impact on the environment or just making your water taste better, there are plenty of reasons to install one in your home," said Max Rose, owner of Four Seasons Plumbing. "A lot of people may not realize their home's water can affect how much they pay for things over the long haul."

A water filtration system connects to the home's water supply in a way that filters all the water coming into the home, meaning all sinks, showers and even toilets will utilize filtered water. The system is typically stored in a garage or basement.

Some of the benefits, according to Rose, of a water filtration system include:

    1. Reducing bottled water consumption - People generally report that
       filtered water tastes better than regular tap water. By installing a
       water filtration system, families that purchase bottled water can switch
       to drinking straight from the tap. Two packs of bottled water can cost as
       much as an entire month's water bill. Just by switching from bottled
       water, a family could save up to $200 annually.
    2. Preserving pipes - Water with a lower-than-usual pH can cause pipes to
       erode faster than water with a more normal pH. The acidity corrodes
       pipes, which can cause leaks or worse. A water filtration device can
       lower the pH of the water before it enters the indoor plumbing, extending
       the life of internal piping.
    3. Extending the life of appliances and fixtures - Similarly to indoor
       pipes, appliances that utilize a lot of water--such as dishwashers and
       washing machines--can be susceptible to either hard or slightly acidic
       water. This can cause these expensive appliances to wear down more
       quickly. Likewise, faucets and showerheads can develop sediment clogs
       from hard water. This can limit the lifespan of those fixtures.
    4. Removing iron from well water - Homes using well water may find that
       their water is high in iron. High iron content will leave a brown stain
       on plumbing fixtures and clothes that is difficult to remove. It can also
       cause water to have a foul taste and smell. Drinking water high in iron
       can also have negative health impacts. A water filtration system can
       solve the many headaches iron can cause.

"A home water filtration system requires an initial investment, but in the long run it can more than pay for itself," Rose said. "For the environmentally and health-conscious family, it can provide value in other ways, such as reducing the amount of single-use plastic water bottles in the home, extending the life of appliances and pipes, and protecting against the negative health effects caused by acidic and high-iron water."
