Clean, safe drinking water has numerous health benefits. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) recommends drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day; however, the quality of the water you drink is very important.
According to the Water Quality Association, “Water and health are linked: According to the CDC, the top causes of disease outbreaks related to drinking water are giardia intestinalis, hepatitis A, norovirus and shigella.”
There are also health risks associated with water quality. The Water Quality Association states, “High levels of lead in drinking water have been linked to delays in physical and mental development, short attention spans and learning difficulties in children. There’s also evidence that arsenic in drinking water can lead to nerve, heart, skin and blood vessel damage. And cryptosporidium is responsible for potentially life-threatening diarrhea.”

What is Water Conditioning? A water conditioning system improves the quality of water by removing or altering minerals, chemicals and contaminants found in the water.
What is an Iron Filter? An iron filter removes iron, sulfur and manganese from well water. It also protects plumbing and appliances against rust build-up.
What is a Reverse Osmosis system? A reverse osmosis system removes impurities by forcing water molecules though a very fine membrane, leaving the contaminants behind.
What is Water Softening? A water softener is a specific type of water conditioning system designed to remove the minerals that cause hardness, typically calcium and magnesium from the water.
There are many benefits of a high-quality water softener:
- Water heater operates more efficiently and will last longer
- Clothes washer operates more efficiently, laundry detergent can be reduced by half or more, and clean laundry is whiter and brighter
- Dishwasher uses less soap and leaves fewer spots on dishes
- Plumbing fixtures experience less mineral build-up
- Household cleaning products are more effective
