small_1464593306In 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.

If you have any questions about a whole house water filtration system, or if you’d like a plumbing system serviced or installed in your home, contact Tiger Services, your Glen Carbon plumbing, heating and air conditioning company.

We definitely recommend Tiger!
"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
