Everyone Wants Good Investments

It is prudent to conserve and invest money wisely especially in these uncertain times with the COVID-19 coronavirus crises. Good investments can be made anytime and a water treatment system is one such investment. A water treatment system may cost less than you think while the benefits are more than you imagine. You will be protecting your home and family and improving quality of life while saving time and money everyday. You can’t say that about many investments.

If you suffer from poor quality water and wisely decide to invest in a water treatment system you will experience financial, lifestyle and other more intangible benefits that are beyond the immediately obvious.  You will have a measurable amount of more time and money to do what makes you happy, you will enjoy life more than ever.

Why a water treatment investment is a good financial investment;

How poor water quality affects your appliances and fixtures;

There are several poor water conditions that affect your appliances and fixtures costing you time and money. The appliances and fixtures we are talking about are those that use water, especially hot water. The most common are your hot water heater, dishwasher, clothes washer, refrigerator, coffee maker, toilets, and fixtures such as showerheads and faucets. Let’s consider three of the most common poor water conditions and look at common problems they cause.

Low pH and low total dissolved solids:

These first two problems and have very similar effects including;

    • Dissolves or eats away at metallic components causing leaks and failure
    • Creates metallic taste and odor

Hard Water:

    • Appliances
      • Hot water heaters are less efficient. They use more energy and take longer to heat water. Many manufacturers are now requiring soft water as a condition to maintain warranty
      • Dishwashers, clothes washers, refrigerators and coffee makers. They all have small valves and solenoids that fail prematurely in hard water conditions
    • Fixtures such as showerheads and faucets
      • Small internal orifices get plugged up preventing them from working
      • O-rings wear due to abrasive action of hard water scale. This causes leaks or failure
      • Moving parts become encrusted with hard water scale causing them to fail

Take more control of your life;

Certainly two of the most impactful benefits of improved water quality are having more time and money to do what you want to do not what you have to do. Enjoy life more with than ever with good quality water.

To sum it up, in a water treatment system to improve poor water quality is a great investment no matter when you can make the investment.
