Water Filtration Systems For The Whole House

What is a Whole House Water Filtration System?

A whole house water filtration system is a comprehensive water treatment solution that filters the water that enters your home. Unlike point-of-use filters that only treat water at specific faucets, a whole house system ensures that every tap or outlet in your house delivers clean, filtered water.

Benefits of a Whole House Water Filtration System

The primary benefit of a whole house water filter is that it purifies the water that flows through your home’s plumbing system. This is particularly useful if your water supply has lots of impurities. Here’s a list of each key benefit:

  1. Improved Water Quality: The filtration system removes contaminants like chlorine, heavy metals, and pesticides. After installing the filter, the taste, smell, and safety of your water will improve significantly.
  2. Health benefits: Corroded service lines and household plumbing, urban runoff, and industrial water waste can contaminate your water supply with arsenic, lead, mercury, and other hazardous heavy metals. A whole house water filter reduces the presence of these heavy metals, making your water much safer. Over time, consuming filtered water can lead to healthier, more radiant skin and hair.
  3. Extended Appliance Life: Water filters remove pollutants before they reach your appliances. This prevents mineral buildup and corrosion, helping your appliances run more smoothly, reducing wear on their parts, and decreasing the chance of breakdowns.
  4. Enhances Skin and Hair Health: Filtered water can improve the health and appearance of your skin and hair by removing harsh chemicals and impurities.
  5. Cost-Effectiveness: Over time, a whole house water filtration system can be more cost-effective than buying bottled water, reducing expenses and environmental impact.

How Do Whole House Water Filtration Systems Work?

A typical whole house water filter cleans water in three steps:

  1. Step 1: Water entering the home passes through the filtration system's pre-filter, which captures large particles like rust, dirt, and silt.
  2. Step 2: An activated carbon filter removes chlorine, chemicals, and odors.
  3. Step 3: A fine filter eliminates smaller contaminants, such as bacteria, cysts, and protozoa, down to 0.5 microns.

However, there are several types of whole house water filtration systems, some of which may use different steps to purify water. You’ll need to consult a water filter expert to determine which system is right for your home.

Whole House Water Filter FAQ

Q: How long do whole house water filters last?

A: Whole house water filters typically last six months to three years, depending on the type of filter and your water usage. Some large tank systems may very well be maintenance free for up to 10 years.

Q: Can a whole house water filter remove all contaminants from my water supply?

A: While some filters significantly reduce contaminants—including chlorine, sediments, and certain chemicals—you may need additional specialized filters to catch everything. Certain whole house systems are designed to remove bacteria and viruses. Look for systems that feature advanced filtration technologies like UV sterilization or activated carbon filters with a small micron rating.

Q: Will a whole house water filtration system affect my water pressure?

A: When properly installed, a whole house system should not significantly impact your water pressure. However, it is essential to choose a system that matches your household's water demand and consult a professional for installation.

Q: Can I install a whole house water filter myself?

A: Installing a whole house water filtration system can be complex, typically requiring modifications to your home's plumbing. While handy homeowners might manage simpler systems, hiring a professional with the proper training and equipment to install the system correctly is generally safer and more effective.
