Purified water helps your home stay safer and cleaner thanks to new technologies. Whether you’re looking to protect your family from nasty chemicals, or prevent damage to your home, purified water can create huge long-term savings in healthcare costs and home repairs.

What is purified water?

Purified water is water that has been processed through a filtration system. These systems come in many different forms such as filtration taps, under-sink filtration systems and whole-home filtration systems.

The best home filtration systems are comprised of a number of different stages to filter out microbes, sediment, metals, rust and chlorine from your water supply. Great filtration systems will also include a UV lamp filter as a final step to kill any bacteria that survive the earlier filtration stages.

Purified water protects your family from harmful chemicals

Every time you and your loved one’s drink from a tap, wash vegetables or cook with tap water, you ingest the nasties found in tap water. Thankfully though, purified water extracts these chemicals, creating better tasting, safer water for your family.

Ingesting bacteria and viruses can be hazardous for kids and elderly

If a family member experiences a slight dip in their immunity such as children surrounded by illness at school, exposure to bacteria and viruses in the water supply can have a notable impact on their health; ranging from feeling under the weather to feeling very unwell. Not only does a water purification system help keep them healthy, it also saves you from paying unnecessary bills at the doctor’s office.

Heavy metal poisoning can occur slowly over time

Despite our ‘safe’ tap water in Australia, heavy metals can slowly leech into the water supply. These heavy metals, such as lead and copper, are incredibly toxic to humans. Tiny amounts ingested everyday can lead to stomach upsets, while small amounts ingested everyday over a long period can lead to more serious issues such as brain cell damage. Water purification systems filter out heavy metals to keep you family’s drinking and cooking water safe for many years.

Purified water keeps skin and hair softer

Your skin is your largest organ and it absorbs around 60% of the contaminants in your water supply. This means every time you wash your hands, shower or take a bath, your skin is sucking in nasties from the tap water.

Not only does purified water in your bathroom prevent the absorption of chemicals through your skin, it also keeps skin and hair softer and cleaner thanks the lack of sediment and chlorine. This will save you money on expensive skin and hair treatments to restore your luscious locks to health.

Unfiltered water can cause lasting damage to your home

Water purification systems can save you thousands on home repairs in the long term due to the startling damage unfiltered water can wreak on your home. Enamel basins, baths, showers and tiling can be permanently marked from small amounts of rust and sediment in your water, leaving unsightly stains in your bathrooms requiring ongoing maintenance.

If you choose a whole home filtration system, you can also inject extra years of life into your household pipes. By channeling only purified water, they absorb less rust and sediment, allowing them to stand the test of time.

Purified water also helps your appliances last longer. When you clean your stainless steal stove top, fridge and toaster with filtered water, the rust and impurities that erode the surfaces are gone, helping your kitchen look great for years to come.

Purified water helps clothes last longer

Washing with purified water prevents chemicals from eroding natural fibres in your clothes, allowing them to retain their integrity and look brighter after each wash.

Purified water is an important investment in your family’s health, and your home’s longevity. Whether you choose a whole-home filtration system, or single tap systems, the health, home and financial benefits are significant.
