Home water filtration systems are a great way to get the taste and quality of your favorite bottled water straight from the tap. And with whole-home water filtration, your clothes, skin, hair, and dishes will all benefit as well.
We use a lot of water. Whether we are drinking, bathing, cooking, or swimming, water affects us on a daily basis.
It’s important to know what’s in your water. There is a good chance you have some of the following contaminants in your water supply:
Before you choose to install a water filtration system, contact a professional plumber to discuss the most suitable filtration and purification method. After you find out what contaminants are in your water, you and your plumber will select the best water filtration system that fits your needs.
Reverse Osmosis – Offering fantastic water quality, these systems utilize a semipermeable membrane to get rid of particles, chemicals, and microorganisms in the water.
Carbon Filter – If you have a pitcher filter or undersink water filter, it probably uses activated carbon as the primary filter mechanism. Carbon filters work by absorbing contaminants, trapping them inside pores created by the positively-charged filter.
Distillation – Distillation water filtration involves vaporizing the water in order to separate it from microscopic, disease-causing organisms. Still, some contaminants will convert to a gas form with the water. For best results, combine distillation with a carbon filtration system.
You have two main installation options when it comes to water filtration. You can either install an undersink filter that filters water for that fixture only or you can install a whole-home water filtration system that filters the water for the entire home.
You can also use pitcher water filters, such as Brita, but these water filters aren’t as effective and require you to constantly refill the pitcher and buy replacements when needed.
Undersink Water Filtration – Like pitcher water filters like Brita, undersink water filtration only filters water at the point of contact—where the water enters the faucet or another direct access point. Undersink water filtration is cheaper than whole-house filtration, but you will only receive filtered water at that point and nowhere else in the home.
Whole-House Water Filtration – Whole-house or whole-home water filtration is the best and most comprehensive form of water filtration for the home. The filtration is installed where the water enters the home and results in water filtration for the entire water supply, including showers, washing machines, and everything else that uses water in the home.
If you want to have cleaner and more effective water for your showers, dish washing, and more, be sure to ask your plumber about whole-home water filtration options.
You may not think about the quality of your water very much, but it affects everything from your food and drink to your clothes and appliances.
