Break Up With Bottled Water
It's the beginning of a new year, and while everyone is focused on making some positive lifestyle changes, many of us are looking at living a healthier, more active life. A necessary part of any healthy lifestyle begins with something simple: water.
When you're ready to hit the gym or just head to work, do you find it easy to reach for a bottle of water out of the fridge? Studies show that switching from bottled water to a water filtration system can not only save you money per year but severely reduces your carbon footprint. Yes, you can save money and do the environment good at the same time! This year, make a pledge to ditch using all of the plastic of bottled water and invest in a water filtration system.
- Water Pitchers: Pitcher filters come in a variety of sizes based on how many cups of water you need at a time. Tap water is placed in the lid and filtered through to the pitcher that is kept in the fridge. Pitchers are extremely easy to use and cost effective.
- Undersink Filtration: You can install a system under your kitchen or bathroom sink that filters all water that flows through that particular faucet. This is more of a set it and forget it (until it's time to change the filter) method because all water that comes out will have been through the filter.
- Whole House Filters: Place a whole house filtration system on the main water line and remove sediment and other particles from all of the water in your home. This is good for people who may have older pipes and would like clean water throughout the house.
Whatever the best method is for you and your needs, keep this economically and environmentally friendly change in mind for 2014. And as always, if you'd like to talk about the water flowing through your pipes, get in touch with the plumbing staff at Casteel to get your questions answered.
