What's In a Home's Water? RainSoft Research Highlights Importance of Treated Water Around the House

Share Article

Food, health, clothes and even a beauty-routine can be greatly affected by what's in - and not in - a family's water. New research from RainSoft shows that even though municipal tap water is typically safe and clean, there are certain contaminants and particles that are still present and can impact families around the house.

Installing a home water treatment system enables your family to trust the crystal clear, bottle-quality water that will come out of your home's tap, whether you're in the kitchen, laundry room or bathroom

Washing home-grown vegetables. Taking a shower before bed. Making a cup of tea for a friend. Just consider the number of household activities that rely on clear, clean water. Recently, the New York Times reported on widespread water pollution in communities nationwide and the health risks of contaminants and toxins. So shouldn't families be sure their water is actually clean?

"Families may not realize how many aspects of their home and lifestyle are impacted by the quality of water that comes out of the tap," said Mark Vance, chief marketing officer at RainSoft. "Your food, health, and even your beauty routine can be greatly affected by what's in - or not in - your family's water."

Research from RainSoft shows that even though municipal tap water is typically safe and clean, there are certain contaminants and particles that are still present and can impact families around the house. Chlorine, sediment, iron, sulfur, calcium, manganese and various other mineral deposits are just some of the particles that are not fully eradicated by municipal water filtering. "Installing a home water treatment system enables your family to trust the crystal clear, bottle-quality water that will come out of your home's tap, whether you're in the kitchen, laundry room or bathroom," said Vance.

Consider how cleaner, treated water affects the following areas of the home:

Home Area: In the Kitchen
Activities: Washing fresh produce, making coffee or juice drinks, filling an ice cube tray, cooking with tap water
Benefits of Treated Water: Water is one of the main ingredients in the kitchen, and treated water is clearer water - free from odors with a difference one can taste. Treated water makes prepared foods taste more natural, mixed juice drinks more delicious and a cool drink of water even more satisfying.

Home Area: In the Bathroom
Activities: Shampooing hair, washing the face and body, cleaning a tub or sink, brushing teeth
Benefits of Treated Water: Water comes in contact with skin every day, and water impurities can cause acne and other skin irritations. Water treated with a water softener virtually eliminates the hard water and soap scum that can cause skin problems. Soap and beauty products lather quickly and rinse completely, causing no surface buildup.

Home Area: In the Laundry Room
Activities: Washing and drying clothes, treating stains and fabrics
Benefits of Treated Water: Clothes and household fabrics can be cleaner and softer simply by changing the water used to launder. Clothes stay in better condition for longer, and conditioned water creates a more powerful sudsing action, which means families use less detergent per cycle.

Home Area: In One's Wallet
Activities: Purchasing household products, buying bottled water, maintaining appliances
Benefits of Treated Water: Implementing a home water treatment system can help families reduce their consumption of household products such as dish soap, laundry detergent and beauty products. Softer water reduces mineral deposits on washers, dryers and bathroom fixtures, so repairs and replacements are less frequent.
