Investing in a water filtration system for your property might seem like an unnecessary expense, however, water filtration systems can actually save you money while helping out the environment.
The use of plastic bottled water has risen significantly in the past years, with over 1,000,000 being purchased by the minute worldwide, and less than a third of this gets recycled. Not only will you help reduce these numbers with a water filtration system, but you will also save yourself money in the long run. Drinking plastic water bottles instead of filtered water can cost you thousands of dollars per year. Read on to learn more about why installing a water filtration system is the right decision!
Installing a water filtration system is better for the environment.
The number of plastic water bottle users has risen dramatically over the last few years. While some have said this increase is because of a healthy shift toward drinking more water than sugary drinks like soda, it also means that the environment is suffering.
Most of these water bottles are made from PET, which is made from fossil fuels. And out of all those bottles, less than a third actually get recycled. By installing a water filtration system, you are lessening the need for these water bottles to be made and lessening the harmful impact they have on the environment.
A water filtration system will save you money in the long run.
We know you're probably still thinking that a water filtration system is a waste of money. However, if you do the math, you will see that it's actually the opposite! Water filtration systems will actually save you money in the long run.
Don't believe us? Let's break down the math:
With no water filtration system, you would be buying bottled water. If there are 2 people in your home and each person consumes 8 cups of water per day, that's 16 cups (or 1 gallon) per day for your household. The average cost of a bottled gallon of water is $9.60, which makes your yearly expenses for bottled water a total of $3,504.
Water filtration systems have different price ranges, but let's say the average installation cost is $1200 while the annual filter replacement is set at $80. If each person in your household will be purchasing 2 reusable water bottles per year, that will be about $48. 1 gallon of water per day from the filtered system will only be $0.55. Add $1200 (installation) + $80 (filter) + $48 (reusable water bottles) + $0.55 (water) and you are looking at a total of $1328.55 for the first year of using a water filtration system. In the following years, you no longer need to factor in the cost of installation. This means that it will only take about $128.55 per year to drink out of a water filtration system.
You are looking at savings of more than $3,000 per year by investing in a water filtration system!
