Reasons to Consider Investing in a Water Filter

Did you know about Love a Tree Day? It's celebrated on May 16, which makes sense since May is Garden for Wildlife month. It's important to provide clean water to trees so they keep growing big and strong, and can eventually be used to help keep our air clean.

As homeowners, we understand the importance of having clean water for drinking, cooking, and showering. What we might not think about, however, is that the plant life around our home also needs that water quality. While Love a Tree Day may be a modern holiday, it’s once you can start celebrating immediately!

Why Clean Water is Important

cleanwaterIt's important to take care of trees with clean water. Polluted water can kill trees and we need them to breathe clean air, provide shade, and even tie swings and provide places for kids to climb so they can get exercise.

Trees also help provide us with clean water. They save water from ending up in storm drains and play a big role in our ecosystem's watershed. If an area gets hit with heavy rainfall or flash floods, trees help reduce the damage because they absorb a lot of the rain.

Because of this, it’s important to keep impurities away from root systems, and only use appropriate water to irrigate landscaping. Most homeowners have a sprinkler system that helps accomplish this goal. If, however, you’ve been using your trees as dumping grounds for old dirty water, it might not be the best thing for your home.

Get Help with Water Filtration Systems

waterfilterDo you have clean water in your house? Just like trees, we need clean water for health reasons. Our bodies need at least 20 to 50 liters of water a day for drinking, cooking, and keeping ourselves clean. Polluted water can cause a lot of deadly diseases, like cholera, and can easily damage your plumbing as well.

If your water isn't clean, consider installing a water filtration system, purchasing a water filtration pitcher, or buying bottled water. Either of these three options works; your choice depends on your budget. At Hall’s Plumbing, we always suggest a full water filtration system.

Unlike filters that only work at one fixture, these devices filter all the water entering your home. This gives you and your family a quality supply of water, while also helping protect your plumbing from deterioration caused by issues like hard water.

Show Your Trees Some Love

plantatreeThe best way to celebrate Love a Tree Day with Hall's Plumbing is to water the trees and plants around you. Make sure the water you're using is clean - you could use collected rainwater or water from your house. You can also celebrate by providing some wildlife-friendly decoration such as a birdhouse.

If you have more space in your yard, consider planting more trees. More trees mean more shady spots in your yard and help increase the carbon footprint even more. Another way to celebrate is by turning your yard into a certified wildlife habitat.

You'll need to add a birdbath, bird feeder, some flowers or shrubs, and of course more trees. Then you can contact the National Wildlife Federation to find out how to certify your yard. As you can see, clean water is important for many different reasons. It helps keep everything around us healthy. Do you have clean water in your home? If not, look at one of the options mentioned for providing clean water to your family. If you decide to install a water filtration system, If not, feel free to give us a call.
