Clean water is a privilege we have come to rely on in North America, but how clean is your water, really? Most homes have impurities and contaminants in the water supply, and while most are not dangerous or deadly, they should still be removed for ideal drinking and bathing water. When you have an advanced water filtration system installed in your home, these contaminants will be removed before you ever touch the water, and everyone in your home will be better off.
Why Would I Need Water Filtration?
Water filtration is a good idea for most homes to reduce or eliminate contaminants in the water. Some of the more common household water contaminants include tannins, iron, magnesium, calcium, sulfur, bacteria, viruses and sometimes even arsenic. Having an advanced water filtration system in place will keep your water pure for drinking and bathing, and remove the likelihood of health issues being caused by what’s in the water.
Common Household Filtration Methods
Reverse osmosis and carbon filters are two of the more common household filtration methods available. With reverse osmosis, the water is filtered through a semi-permeable membrane, where the impurities are removed. With carbon filtration, the water passes through layers of carbon where the contaminants are removed. Having a whole house system installed is your best bet for having clean water from every source in the house. With a whole home water filtration system, your plumber will have every point of entry covered, so all faucets produce clean water that is free from impurities.
Can I Try the DIY Approach?
You can find various water filtration products in most department and hardware stores, and while many are effective, they don’t offer comprehensive results. Point-of-use filters can remove contaminants, but they are only effective in that one spot, and the rest of your house is still getting the contaminants you want to eliminate. Most other products will only give you temporary relief, if any at all. Only a whole-house water filtration system professionally installed after a proper water test will give you the results you need.
