Most of us are guilty of drinking bottled water. It’s a convenient way of getting our water intake while on the go. But how many of us are guilty of drinking bottled water at home too? The bottled water industry is huge. We spend more than $16,000,000,000 a year on more than 12.8 billion gallons of bottled water a year. That averages to about $1.25 a gallon! But what’s more, public water systems supply more than 1,000,000,000 gallons of water to us every hour, every day. That’s a lot of water! Having an advanced whole house water filtration system installed in your home has endless benefits. Agape Air Conditioning, Heating and Plumbing would like to share some of these benefits with you today.

Types of Water Filtration Systems
Reverse Osmosis System – This is known as one of the most effective home water filtration systems available. Using air pressure, water is forced through a semi-permeable membrane and goes through a 5-7 step purification process. Brands that offer 6-7 stage processes produce alkaline water and can produce 50-90 gallons a day!
Carbon Exchange Water Filtration System – Aka ion exchange or water softeners. Positively charged ions attract negatively charged ions such as calcium and barium which can be harmful to our bodies. Prolonged exposure to barium can negatively affect our internal organs.
