Go Green and Drink Pure Charlotte Water
Going green isn’t just a good idea for energy savings, cost savings or to be kinder to the world at large. Green plumbing can also improve your health, providing healthier, cleaner water for your family. The following are going green options we advise you to look into:
Find Out How Clean Your Charlotte Water Supply Really Is
Get a copy of your municipal water quality report or have your water tested by an independent organization to determine exactly how clean your water is (or isn’t). You can read more about Charlotte water quality here for a starting point, but you will especially want to get your water tested if you are:
- Living in an older home, where pipe corrosion is likely
- Using well water, and are unsure of the purity of your water
Invest in Shower Head Chlorine Filters
Did you know chlorine is absorbed six times faster through the skin than through the digestive system? Chlorine sensitivity is a serious problem for many people. Protect your family (and your skin and hair, both of which are negatively affected by exposure to chlorine) by installing filters. They are inexpensive and the project won’t take long at all.
Invest in a Whole House Water Filtration System
While your water is probably safe to drink, it isn’t necessarily healthy and pure. Modern water purification processes are still lacking in many ways, and the heavy use of chemicals to purify water means most of us are ingesting subpar water. A whole house water filtration system removes almost every single trace of every single contaminant, including chlorine and other chemicals used in the purification process. It’s the most effective way to ensure your family is truly drinking, cooking with and bathing in clean water.
