We all agree that you should never have to worry about what is in your water. Clean water, especially clean drinking water, is something everyone should enjoy.
When we say “clean” we don’t just mean water that isn’t made of mud. We ‘e referring to properly filtered water that has been cleansed of harsh minerals that could harm the person holding their glass of H2O.
Yes, our water is treated at the municipal level, but it still has the ability to pick up new contaminants on its way to your house. This is what our home water filters are for. With growing concerns about toxins from flushed prescription drugs or pesticides contaminating our water supplies, it is no wonder that we rely on our filtration systems to protect us.
If you are looking to find out more about water filtration systems for your home, the rest of this blog will offer you some clarity of mind … and water!
Types of Filters
There are two main kinds of filtration systems that can be installed in your home. These include the whole-house or “point-of-entry” filter and the point-of-use filter.
A whole-house filter treats your water for impurities as it arrives at your home. In most cases, a point-of-entry filtration system uses a reverse osmosis filter. This type of filter forces the water through a semi-permeable membrane to remove contaminants. These systems often get rid of most of the chemicals and minerals you don’t want.
A point-of-use filter can use either reverse osmosis or a carbon-based filtration system. A reverse osmosis point-of-use filter is installed under the sink, whereas the carbon-based filter is installed at the mouth of the faucet (think of a detachable filter such as a Brita™). The latter of these two systems normally addresses bad-tasting water as it reduces the chlorine and ammonia in the water coming out of the faucet.
The Benefits of a Chief Water Filtration System
Did you know that both you and your home benefit from a properly installed filtration system? Why? Because it removes a large range of unwanted foreign materials in your water that you don’t want to ingest and could reduce the lifespan of your pipes and water fixtures. A good filter will reduce the presence of minerals or algae that could affect your health and harm your plumbing, increasing the need for repairs or replacement.
You have to put a lot of trust into your filter. This is why it is beneficial to look into a Chief Water Filtration System.
