What is a Whole-House Water Filtration System?
If you, like many homeowners throughout the southeastern U.S., struggle with tap water that has a bad taste or odor, you stand to benefit significantly from having a whole house water filtration system installed. While some people are content to use a filtration pitcher, a faucet-mounted filter, or an under-the-sink filtration system to make their water more drinkable, these methods fail to address other issues such as skin irritation, filmy deposits on clean dishes, or stiff, dry-feeling laundry. A whole-house water filtration system can provide an all-encompassing solution by addressing the problem at its root—the point of entry.
A whole house water filtration system is connected to your home’s water supply. This means that all of the water that goes to your home—for drinking, cooking, bathing, washing, etc.—will run through the central filter. This eliminates the need to use faucet-mounted filters to obtain filtered drinking water and also treats the water that you will use for laundry and bathing, so you won’t have to deal with dry, itchy skin or clothes that aren’t getting thoroughly washed.
There are two main types of whole house water filtration systems. The first is an activated carbon system, which is great for removing harsh chemicals and disinfectants from your water. The other is a reverse osmosis system, which is particularly good at removing microbial contaminants. In order to determine which type of system is best for your home, you should contact a water treatment professional who is familiar with the chemical composition of your area’s water supply.
