In last week’s blog, we mentioned that our tap water contains all kinds of contaminants that affect its safety, taste and smell. And although an under the sink water filtration system is a great way to have access to healthy and great tasting water at a single tap, there is a different type of water treatment system that can purify the water at every tap in your home! It’s called a whole house water filtration system, and today we’re going to talk about how it works and the benefits of installing one in your Glen Carbon area home!
What is a whole house water filtration system?
A whole house water filtration system is a type of water treatment product that’s installed right where tap water enters your home. That means that all of the water that flows through your home’s pipes and taps goes through a filtration system before you use it.
The technology used by a whole house filtration allows it to remove the sediments, chemicals and other contaminants that negatively affect your home’s water quality. These contaminants include chlorine, THM’s, arsenic, bacteria lead and more.
What are the advantages of a whole house filtration system?
- Extremely pure water. As unfortunate as it is, you just can’t trust the quality of the water that you receive from your local municipality. With a whole house filtration system, you can be confident in the fact that your water is always freshly-filtered and free of the disinfectant chemicals that are added by water treatment plant (as well as their byproducts and other contaminants).
- Only one system needed. One of the best advantages of a whole house filtration system is that it provides filtered water to every single tap in your home. You’d have to install many point-of-use filters to get the same effect, which would be expensive and a headache to maintain.
- Clean water that’s not just for drinking. Filtered water isn’t just great for drinking; it’s also great for showering, cooking and every other way we use water in our homes. That’s because the chemicals and contaminants in unfiltered tap water can be unsafe when we use the water on our skin or breathe in its vapors. A whole house filtration system will ensure that you have healthy and pure water for every use in your home.
