Benefits of Installing a Whole House Water Filter System

Remember the saying: buy a filter or be the filter? Just as you use an air filter to protect your lungs and air conditioner, a water filter will help protect your health, appliances and plumbing systems.

Water from your tap can contain harmful contaminants like lead, chlorine, and bacteria, which is why installing a whole house water filtration system is a wise investment. Not only will filtered water be healthier for you and your family, but it will also taste better and your skin and hair will feel softer and less dry after bathing.
Whole house water filtration systems are not only good for your health, but they're also good for the environment. By filtering your water at the source, you'll reduce the amount of plastic bottles that end up in landfills each year. You'll also save money on bottled water costs and protect your plumbing fixtures from damage caused by corrosive chemicals.

But which one should you purchase?

Common options are cartridge style filters and whole house tank style filters. Both are effective at reduces sediment, sands, and rust. For tougher contaminates such as chlorine, chloramines, lead, PFAS and VOCS, a tank style with it much larger contact time is required.

Cartridge style filters are typically a lower initial investment but require more often replacement.

Whole house tank style filters normally cost more up front but have a longer life span, such as 6-10 years without replacement. Water softeners can last as long as 15 years or more.

Types of filter medium & materials:

Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) can effectively
remove chlorine, chloramines, lead, TCE, PCE, THMs, phenols, pesticides,
detergents, taste and odor, and more.

KDF process media can effectively reduce heavy metals and prevent bacteria growth.

Salt based water softener resin can effectively remove water hardness minerals i.e. calcium & magnesium, when regenerated with salt.

Properly designed zeolite, polyphosphate and template assisted crystallization filtration can reduce hard water & lime scale.
