Keep Your Family Healthy With Whole-House Water Filtration Systems | Knoxville, TN

You’ve been buying disposable water filters for your kitchen sink for years because, like many of us, you worry about what’s lurking in your municipal tap water and, frankly, you don’t like the taste of it. And when your disposable filter’s red light goes on, and you don’t have any replacement filters in storage, you’re stuck either using questionable tap water in your morning coffee or meal prep or spending money on expensive purified or distilled water bottled in wasteful plastic bottles. Whether this describes you or if you’re the type to invest in cumbersome filtration pitchers for the refrigerator instead, maybe it’s time to look into water filtration systems that clean the water not only in your kitchen but also in your sinks, showers and utility tubs. If you’re in Knoxville, TN, call the plumbing experts at My Professional Plumber and we can help you take steps to improve the water quality in your entire home, not just what’s running out of your kitchen sink.

Enjoy Better-Tasting and Safer Drinking Water

Many of us start our morning routine with a tall glass of water to hydrate after a good night’s sleep and get our bodies moving. We also reach for water from the tap after a long run, challenging hike or sweaty weight-lifting session. Some would ask, what is the point of doing all these things to keep ourselves healthy when the water we drink can be detrimental to our well-being? The truth is, even water that is processed through a municipal treatment facility enters our home teeming with contaminants, from dangerous lead to added minerals like chlorine and fluoride, which can be harmful to our health as well. Water filtration systems clean water as soon as it enters our home and eliminates the risk of exposure to impurities that pass through our cities’ treatment plants.

If you happen to draw water from a well or live in a region where treated water is not available, you and your family could be exposed to industrial pollution, naturally-occurring bacteria, and agricultural chemicals with every sip of water you take. Let the experts at My Professional Plumber help you explore which of the available water filtration systems we install and service fit your home’s needs. There are many options for whole-home water filtration systems. That’s why we’ll test a water sample first and analyze your home’s needs as part of the recommendation process. In the end, we’ll hook you up not only with better-tasting water that is free from disease-causing pathogens and toxic chemicals.

Feel Cleaner After Showering or Bathing

When we apply quick fixes to contaminated water sources, such as kitchen sink filters, we are ignoring how the water we use in the bathroom, when brushing our teeth, showering or washing our faces, can also expose us to chemicals and impurities that can irritate our eyes, skin and internal systems. Water filtration systems for your entire home allow you to enjoy clean and safe water everywhere, not just when drinking from the kitchen tap. In addition, when My Professional Plumber analyzes your water needs for your Knoxville, TN home, we can determine if further treatment options, like water-softening technologies, are right for you, too. Properly filtered and treated water will actually make you feel cleaner as it helps our favorite soaps, body washes and shampoos not only work better to break up dirt and oil but also rinse more efficiently from our bodies as well as our shower walls and bathtubs. If you’d love to get healthier skin or help prevent soap scum and mineral build-up in your shower or fixtures, My Professional Plumber can recommend water filtration systems and further treatment methods that specifically improve your bathroom’s water supply.

Limit Exposure to Allergens or Detergents with Clean-Rinsing Laundry and Dishes

We require clean water to stay hydrated and keep ourselves clean, but we also require water to keep our home clean and the things we use on a daily basis clean. It’s not uncommon to have allergies or sensitivities to laundry detergents, and, as such, there are many detergents on the market made especially for those with sensitivities to fragrances, colorants and other additives used in the soaps and bleaches we use to clean our clothes, towels and bedding. When you shop the countless water filtration systems available on the market, be sure to take this into consideration. Even the most gentle detergents intended for sensitive skin are going to cause irritation when they are not rinsed properly from your laundry and filtered and treated water will facilitate the rinsing process.

Furthermore, water filtration systems aid in keeping appliances running smoothly. For example, washers will be less likely to build up soap and mineral deposits when the water that they use is clean and, as a result, will clean clothes more efficiently with less wear and tear. If you’ve noticed that your dishes and glasses aren’t getting clean no matter how well you pre-rinse them before putting them in the dishwasher, it may be an issue of mineral buildup in the sprayers and hoses, which can also impact proper drainage from the unit. Don’t serve otherwise healthy food to your loved ones on plates that aren’t 100% clean. The experts at My Professional Plumber of Knoxville, TN can offer various treatment and water filtration solutions to keep your home’s appliances functioning properly.
