Choosing the Right Water Filtration SystemPublished: May 29, 2020
The quality of your home’s water can affect its taste. Low quality water for cooking, drinking, or cleaning can have serious effects on your family’s health. Poor water quality can also affect the life of your fixtures & appliances. If you’re concerned about your home’s tap water, a water filtration system is recommended.
Here’s the most common types of water filtration systems & their benefits:
Sediment filters work by removing dirt & debris from your water. These systems are mostly used in homes with well water. All homes can benefit from this type of filter. Sediment filters protect your appliances & plumbing system from damaging buildup. Removing large particles from tap water can also improve taste.
Reverse Osmosis water filtration
Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration uses a membrane to remove particles. RO filtration can remove smaller contaminants than sediment filters, such as detergents, heavy metals, & chemicals.
UV water filtration
Removing particles is only one step in curing your home water. You also need something to remove pathogens that can make your family sick. UV systems don’t change the taste of water & use low amounts of energy. They’re very effective & can remove 99.99% of bacteria & viruses from your water.
Combo water filtration
Combined systems will remove large particles & filter out chemicals & pathogens. With this type of system, you benefit from all the strengths of sediment filters, RO systems, & UV systems. There’s a variety of options that can fit any home’s needs.
