Do you know what is in the water you serve to your customers?
Many business owners don’t even stop to consider the idea that their water is contaminated.
Did you know that Physicians for Social Responsibility estimate that 900,000 Americans get sick from contaminated drinking water each year? As a business owner, it’s key to take care of your customers, including keeping your water as clear of contamination as possible.
Read on to learn three reasons why it’s important to invest in a water filtration system for your business.
1. Remove Excess Substances
Whether you’re using water to wash dishes and silverware or serve coffee or beverages in your restaurant, your customers and staff are coming into contact with potential contaminants.
Depending on your area, your water may contain a variety of impurities, such as chlorine, fluoride, lead, nitrates, arsenic, and copper. Water can also contain other contaminants, including E.coli, salmonella, and other viruses.
At best, these impurities and contaminants can affect the taste of your prepared drinks or food. At worst, they can create major health hazards.
Proper water filtration will help to remove these substances.
2. Cut Down on Costs
Filtering water can also benefit your company’s bottom line.
Here is a figure that might astonish you: bottled water costs 2,000 times the amount of tap water!
By eliminating the cost of purchasing water, you can get rid of a large bill for your business each month.
Water filtration also helps to reduce unnecessary plumbing repairs. The metal and chemical impurities that damage pipes over time will be filtered out, ensuring that your system doesn’t break down.
Additionally, filtering your water creates softer water, which will not contain minerals that counteract detergents, so that kitchenware gets cleaner with less soap. That way, you save money each month on soap!
Last but certainly not least, filtration can help your business avoid a disaster.
In the case of water contamination from a burst sewer line or run-off, your water filtration system will ensure your business still has access to clean water and can stay open to the public.
3. Environmentally Friendly
As businesses become more focused on being environmentally friendly and green, water filtration can play a large role.
As mentioned above, bottled water costs much more than tap water. Bottled water also creates tons of plastic waste that takes decades to break down in landfills.
The filtration cartridges that clean the water are also recyclable so you can ensure that harmful substances don’t end up polluting the water a second time.
By switching from bottled water to filtered tap water, you can do your part to cut down on unnecessary plastic pollution while also cleaning pollution out of the environment.
A Water Filtration System is a Must
These three reasons are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the benefits of your business having a water filtration system.
