Water Filtration System
Are you worried about the water quality in your home?
There is a simple, cost-effective, and eco-friendly solution to your concerns: whole house water filtration.
Benefits Of Whole House Water Filtration
With a whole house water filtration system, you get clean, fresh water from every faucet in your home. This delivers many benefits such as:
Better Health: Whole house water filtration removes all kinds of contaminants from the water supply. This not only protects you from the health risks of drinking or cooking with contaminated water, but also from bathing or washing your clothes with it. Remember, even the best municipal water supply can have a glitch and get contaminated. With your own whole house water filtration system in place, you will be protected if this happens.
Cleaner Indoor Air: Many municipal water supplies contain chlorine and other chemicals, which can become vaporized when you run your taps and turn into chloroform gas. According to the EPA, virtually every home in America has elevated levels of chloroform gas for this reason. With whole house water filtration, you can remove these chemicals and eliminate this problem.
Protection for Plumbing: Dirt, rust, and dissolved minerals in unfiltered water can by harmful to your plumbing. They can create scale that will clog your pipes, decrease the efficiency of your water heater, and also leave an unsightly residue on your plumbing fixtures and bathroom tile. With whole house water filtration, you can remove these particles and prevent these problems.
Cost Savings: Compared to buying bottled water for all your drinking and cooking needs, whole house water filtration systems are extremely cost-effective. Depending on the system you choose, you will get the equivalent of 600,000 to 1,000,000 gallon jugs of water for a fraction of the cost of buying bottles.
Reduced Waste: Buying bottled water creates a lot of waste in the form of empty plastic bottles. And remember, recycling does add to your carbon footprint by using energy. A whole house water filtration system will give you clean water with a much smaller carbon footprint, since the filters only need to be cleaned or replaced a few times per year, depending on your water usage.
How It Works
A whole house water filtration system is a very simple and effective way to remove all kinds of undesirable contaminants from your household water. The typical system consists of a three stage filtration process:
- Stage 1: a sediment prefilter to remove dirt, rust, and microscopic particles
- Stage 2: oxidation media and crushed mineral filter to remove chlorine and pre-condition the pH of the water for the next stage
- Stage 3: high grade activated carbon filter to remove chemicals and biological contaminants
