The biggest complaint we hear about tap water (or rather municipal water) is the taste and smell.
Believe me, we’ve heard it all!
- “My water tastes like chlorine.”
- “My water tastes like metal.”
- “My water smells like sulfur.”
- “My water tastes like mildew.”
- “My water smells like rotten eggs.”
That rotten egg or sulfur smell, in most cases, is either the end result of bacteria breaking down organic matter or high iron levels in your water.
The smell and taste of municipal water is one of the leading causes of increased plastic water bottle consumption, and of course, waste. Those plastic water bottles pile up in landfills and require way too many resources to manufacture. In fact, it requires more water to make the plastic bottles than it takes to fill those same water bottles up!
We’ve even heard cases in which people have attempted to wash their children and pets with bottled water!
Water that suffers from high iron levels or hydrogen sulfide releasing bacteria has the potential to damage clothing, hair, dishware and skin. While truly hope that those same people foolishly using bottled water to clean their children and pets are not using plastic bottled water to wash their dishes and clothes!
How do you deal with that bad water taste and smell coming out of your tap? Your shower? How can you achieve bottled water taste without bottled water waste?
The answer is simple, have a whole house water filtration system, like HtruO, installed at your apartment, condominium or house today! Whole house water filters (or point of entry water filters as they’re sometimes called) can improve the taste, smell and overall quality of all the municipal water that comes out of your faucet, bathtub, dishwasher, washing machine and shower with only one installation!
If you want bottled quality water DO NOT wash everything in your home or apartment with plastic bottled water. Instead, install an affordable point of entry water filter. Its less expensive, treats more water and is better for the environment than plastic bottles.
A point of entry water filter is the only way to provide every fixture and appliance in your home with great tasting and smelling, bottled quality water.
