Have you ever considered all the things that can contaminate our drinking water? Whether it’s bacteria or fungi or some other biofilm, contaminants can be very hazardous to human health. For that reason, more and more people are having whole home water filtration systems installed. This way, they can drink and bathe with the water in their homes with peace of mind that all the bad stuff has already been erased. If you’re on the fence or just curious about what all it entails, take a look below at our full expert guide to whole home water filtration systems and how they can help you and your family from day one.
The Basics of Whole Home Water Filtration
In all honesty, a whole home water filtration system is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a filtration system that cleans all the water in your pipes before you ever come into contact with it. Whether it’s drinking water or bathing water or anything else, a whole home water filtration system scrubs it all.
More specifically, whole home water filtration systems can serve a number of purposes:
- Reduce your water’s “hardness”
- Eliminate sediment remnants
- Remove chlorine smell
- Clean out biofilm
- And many other uses
Regardless of which reason (or two or three) that’s most applicable to you and your home, it’s also helpful to understand exactly how they work to achieve the desired result.
Here’s the basics: A whole home water filtration system treats all your home’s water right at the main water line as it reaches your house. This way, it can make sure that all the water flowing from each faucet, bath, shower, washing machine, and anything else, is filtered and pure.
Whole house water filters are what’s called a POE, or “point of entry” filter. They’re the gatekeeper for all of your tap water, and as a result, they only let fresh, clean, filtered water to flow through all of your pipes, faucets, and appliances. Pretty neat, huh?
How Much Do Whole Home Water Filtration Systems Cost?
For whole house water filters, you essentially need to know what the primary purpose of the filtration is going to be. That will help you narrow down the type of system to have installed and more or less determine the overall cost of the device and the installation. Let’s take a look at the main types of residential water filtration systems, so you can see the differences between them and determine which one works best for your needs.
