New Jersey was hit by some intense winter storms this past year and because of this, we’ve been told that our drinking water will be saltier. Why? Well, with all the salt spread on the roads, this gets washed off into our lakes, streams, and water supply, thus creating saltier drinking water. Along with salt, there are other heavy minerals that, due to environmental factors, increase in the drinking supply.
Guzzling glass after glass of this drinking water might not pose many health risks, but the fewer heavy minerals or salt in our diets can lead to healthier lives. Water filters in your home remove most of these unnecessary elements making it taste better.
Carcinogenic Chemicals in New Jersey Water
Cancer-causing chemicals, or carcinogenics, such as Chromium-6 is a popular topic in the water filtration community. New Jersey residents should pay special attention to the recent headlines pertaining to this toxic substance linked to cancer due to the fact that the majority of Americans effected by this chemical are in New Jersey! Even with little exposure to Chromium-6, it is still linked to causing cancers, liver damage and reproductive and developmental problems. Other types of carcinogens and neurotoxins found in water supplies include: benzene, chlorine, fluoride, arsenic, lead, dimethyl disulfide, carbon disulfide, Napthalene, trimethyl benzene and the list goes on.

Benefits of Soft Water for Your Home
If you’ve experienced that itchy, scratchy, dry and sticky feeling after a shower, you have hard water. Those minerals build up in your water thus clinging to your skin, making your skin feel flaky and uncomfortable. The benefits of switching your water from hard to soft include:
Better bathing: When your water is soft, soap washes away clean, leaving you feeling silky smooth after a shower.
Cleaner clothes and dishes: With a soft water installation, your clothes will be soft and fluffy and your glasses will come away spot-free and crystal clear.
Easier on appliances: An excess of lime and calcium in your water also adds to the soap scum in your shower and the crusty gunk that accumulates on the spout of your faucets.
Longer life for appliances: Buildup of lime and calcium in your appliances make them run slower and inefficiently, leading to their inevitable, premature demise.
