As soon as you started setting the table for dinner you remembered what you had intended to buy your step mother for Christmas. New sets of drinking glasses.
Her Christmas table looks beautiful, but the water build up on all of the glasses in her cupboard is terrible. It is so bad, in fact, that you can nearly feel it as you grab glasses from the cupboard, even before you see it. Three years ago your dad and his wife decided that they were tired of dealing with the water softener maintenance and they got rid of the softener that they had for years. You have tried on occasion to tell them that water softener systems for homes are much easier to maintain than the antiquated system they dismantled, but they assure you that they no longer need the soft water.
As you reach into the cupboard, however, the chalky feel of the drinking classes remind you that if you cannot talk them into going back to a home water treatment system that both filters and and softens, you at least need to start them all over with new sets of drinking and juice glasses. You are hoping that when they see the quick transition from a new quality set of glasses to the coated set that will likely occur within a few months that they may change their minds. You simply have to find a way to convince them to reconsider their decision and to install a home water treatment system.
Are You Concerned About the Drinking Water in Your Home?
As the news reports from 2017 continue to confirm that some Flint, Michigan, residents are still only able to drink bottled water, it is no wonder that citizens across the country continue to look for ways to know that their drinking water is safe and healthy. While we all likely know that the human body is composed of 60% water and that healthy amounts of water do everything from keeping our skin looking good to providing adequate hydration to maintain your gastrointestinal tract and prevents constipation, we might not always be aware of how safe the water we drink is.
Home water treatment systems, including household water softener systems and water filtration systems, can help you rest assured that you are providing your family with healthy drinking water.
In a time when the new President elect is nominating people to his cabinet who do not believe in the federal regulation of water, air, and other environmental issues, it may indeed be time to address the safety of the drinking water that comes into your home and office. Water disasters like the Flint, Michigan, situation are an indicator of what can go wrong when a local government agency is supposedly monitoring the safety of the water that we drink. Imagine what could happen if we transition into a new Presidential staff that does not see the purpose in these regulations at all.
