Why Healthy Water Matters to Your Appliances—and Your Pocketbook

Talk about water filtration and water treatment invariably starts with the taste (and smell) of treated water vs. untreated tapwater. After all, nobody wants to drink a glass of gross, sulfur-flavored water, or to give it to your family or put it in your food.

And of course, this is why many people choose point-of-use (POU) water filters. These devices usually affix to each individual tap (or in the pipes just below a tap) to provide some level of filtration just before the water hits your glass.

But POU filters offer a limited, short-term, and less-than-ideal flavor solution while totally overlooking a major need for residential water filters in Manatee and Sarasota counties: your home appliances.

That’s right, Bradenton water is loaded with minerals, and Bradenton city water treatment leaves a chlorinated taste and smell. But these deposits don’t just affect your home’s human residents. Your appliances pay a big price for your home’s untreated Manatee County water, and your pocketbook will feel it, too, when those appliances breakdown, become inefficient, fail, and need replacement way sooner than they should. And your point-of-use filters won’t protect them one bit.

Here’s why a Healthy Water point-of-entry, whole-home water treatment system matters to your appliances—and your pocketbook.

How untreated Bradenton water affects your water heater.

Let’s start with your home’s water heater. Whether you have a tank water heater or tankless; whether it’s electric or gas/propane, this appliance takes water directly from your home’s point-of-entry water supply. That means that your water heater’s pipes, fixtures, and whole system are directly exposed to the calcium, magnesium and other minerals of Bradenton municipal water.

These minerals can build up inside your water heater and lessen its efficiency and/or weaken pipes and joins. When those systems break down, you will need to buy a new water heater much sooner than anticipated.

On top of that, untreated water that goes into a water heater—especially if you use well water or are in an area with very old residential water infrastructure—may contain bacteria. These organisms can thrive in warm waters and build up to unsafe levels inside your water heater.

Why your washing machine needs a whole-house water treatment system.

Washing machine pipes and fixtures can suffer the same fate as water heaters when exposed to the minerals in untreated, unfiltered water. Plagued by mineral buildup, the machine will become inefficient and will break down faster.

But in a washing machine, not only does mineral buildup affect the machine’s lifespan; those calcium deposits will create rust and other stain-making spots inside your machine that will immediately leave their marks on your clothes.

That means that not only will you need to buy a new washer, but you’ll also have added expenses in rewashing or replacing your family’s clothes.

How untreated Bradenton water affects your dishwasher, refrigerator, and more.

And the list goes on. Any home appliance that directly interacts with untreated water will be affected in some way—first by mineral buildup, and then potentially by bacterial buildup, too.

You’ll quickly see the evidence of mineral buildup on your dishes as they come out of the dishwasher. And your refrigerator’s filtration system is no match for Bradenton water, meaning its lines will be clogged with mineral buildup (or worse still, mildew and algae) before you know it.

Even your coffeemaker will begin to grow mineral lines. Your sinks and showers will spray in all directions and leave rust behind.

Healthy Water is the answer to healthy home appliances.

Point-of-use filters won’t protect any of your appliances that attach directly to your home’s water supply. But a whole-home Health Water treatment system will protect them from Bradenton’s hard-water minerals and bacteria the same way it protects your family.
