Are you thinking about renovating your kitchen? Perhaps you’ll be making room for that larger oven you’ve been eyeing or going high-tech with more efficient fixtures. While it’s easy to get carried away in dreaming up the kitchen of your dreams, consider leaving room in the budget for one simple piece of equipment that will pay for itself in spades in quality of life and health benefits – a reverse osmosis filter.
Once the domain of only the highest class mansions, water filtration is extremely affordable these days. Don’t let the price tag fool you, water filtration is serious business and has crystal clear benefits for your health and quality of life.
Water affects every part of our lives; it’s the only reason why life can survive on Earth at all. So why cook with less than pure H2O in the kitchen? Everything cooked in the kitchen eventually makes its way into our mouths, so why not make it the most nutritious food possible?
A clean source of water supports a life free of chronic disease affecting our nervous, endocrine, and immune systems. Can you imagine the luck in dodging the bullet of cancer, a condition affecting every Western country in epidemic proportions, by simply drinking cleaner water?
If you already have a filtration system in place, you may want to consider upgrading to a newer, more efficient system. The systems of just ten years ago are outdated due to leaps and bounds in reverse osmosis technology. Better selective membranes, substrates, and UV lights all add up to a system that is more efficient and less expensive. More and more people are using reverse osmosis than ever before, which has led to innovations in the field, and less expensive equipment.
Besides simply being more affordable, the systems of today are better. Over time, wear and tear erodes the filtration components. Instead of repairing your existing system, it is financially wise to invest in one that will cost less to maintain. It’s the same principal as owning a newer car to avoid expensive repair costs, or taking the risk of reoccurring breakdowns.
Not only are the systems of today more efficient, but many of them are much smaller and quieter than before. No longer will an entire closet need to be dedicated to that clunker. Imagine finally having more counter space! The quieter equipment of today also means that you can keep it conveniently located under the sink without making excuses for those strange sounds coming from the cupboards when your guests come over. It might seem like a minor detail, but the future is finally here, so why not fully embrace it?
Due to the significant improvement in more affordable solutions, it is simply smarter thinking to invest in a reverse osmosis filter for the kitchen, and maybe even for the whole house (you might as well shower in clean water too, right?) The equipment of today is smaller, meaning you have more room for those new appliances, or those gorgeous antique cabinets. Furthermore, component efficiency improvements ensure that the water you drink is of the utmost quality and updated to handle the toxic load of our aging water delivery infrastructure.
Here’s a toast to our health and home construction budgets: take the plunge, you won’t regret it!
