Water filter - The best home improvement investment
A whole house water filter can solve an array of problems throughout your home ranging from improving water quality and taste to protecting and prolonging the lifespan of pipes/appliances to benefiting your health! Cleaning has never been easier; a whole house filter protects fixtures from contaminant buildup and makes it easier to wipe away. A whole house filter is installed at the main water line to filter every drop of water that touches or enters our body. Many of us are on a municipal water supply and rely on the local city water to protect us from harmful contaminants in the water. While, the laws intended to protect our water supplies, the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act, are not being strictly enforced. If contaminant levels are not high enough to cause any immediate illnesses then it does not call for immediate attention. Nonetheless, studies have shown that harmful contaminants in the water cause chronic health effects. Chronic health effects occur long after repeated exposure to small amounts of a contaminant. This stresses the importance of protecting our water supply with further filtration to filter out various contaminants that are left behind and filter any additional chemicals that are added.
Whole house filtration systems remove contaminants from your water through a filter connected to your main water line. All of the water coming into your house will pass through the filter before being routed to faucets, toilets and any water appliances in the house. The types of contaminants that you will need to remove from your water will vary based on whether you receive water from a municipal system, well, or spring. First, let us understand the benefits of having a whole house water filter.
How Can a Whole House Water System Benefit My Life?
- Improved Water Quality, Taste & Odor – The whole house system is guaranteed to improve the water quality throughout the entire home by providing contaminant and odor free water. For example, if you notice sediment in your water and treat your home with a whole house sediment filter you will notice clean, clear water throughout every faucet. The whole house sediment filter can prevent dirt, sand and silt from clogging in your pipes.
- Improved Life of Appliances – Whole house water filters are great in protecting your home from damages caused by various water contaminants. For example, if you are experiencing orange iron staining throughout the home, a whole house iron filter can remove these stains and protect your appliances by removing and preventing heavy scale buildup. Benefit from reduced red staining, rust particles and rotten egg odor. Improved water clarity and purity without any bad odors.
- Improved Health – Chlorine is a useful chemical used to treat tap water. Unfortunately, it is also a toxic chemical that is harmful for our skin and lungs. When we shower, the heat opens up our pores and absorbs chlorine from both the water and steam. A whole house carbon filter removes chlorine and provides chlorine-free showers, baths and face washes to all faucets in the home.
- Softer Skin & Hair – A whole house water softener is extremely beneficial in reducing scale buildup throughout the entire home. This results in easier cleaning, softer hair, skin and brighter, longer lasting clothes. More importantly, it protects pipes and appliances from scale build up to protect any clogging from occurring. Water appliances are able to maximize their efficiency because of the reduced scale buildup from hard water.
Whole house filters remove chlorine and other chemical taste/odor, iron and scale build-up, plus dirt/sediment, making water cleaner and clearer for your whole house. If you have no special contamination issues then a whole house carbon filtration system is recommended for general multi-purpose whole house purification. If you have special water problems then you would need a whole house system dedicated to treat that contaminant. A whole house softener is recommended if you require soft water for a scale free environment and spotless glassware. Whole house filters are a big investment for your home and work effectively to protect your fixtures and home appliances. Enjoy better health and peace of mind knowing harmful contaminants have been removed from every faucet outlet in your entire home.
