No matter what your home water source is, there is a chance that your water is contaminated. That’s why it’s important to use a water filter system to remove potentially harmful chemicals, metals, and other contaminants. If you’re wondering what type of filter to install in your house, read on as AquaScience in Clifton Park and Hyde Park, NY, explains what a whole-house water filter is and why it may be a good fit for you.
What Is a Whole-House Water Filter?
Those looking to make their entire water system safer by removing contaminants like aluminum, chlorine, disinfection byproducts, and lead should consider a whole-house water filter. These systems are placed at the plumbing water source in your home and filter every drop of water that comes out of your showers, tubs, sinks, and even your dishwasher and washing machine.
Some people opt out of the whole-house version and choose to add filters to their water system only in areas where they drink the water or use it for cooking. These filters may be a part of the faucet that must be changed occasionally and require more maintenance that the centralized option.
Should I get a Whole-House Filter?
Plumbers often recommend that homes connected to city water systems use whole-house water filters to remove contaminants. This method may also improve the clarity, smell, and taste of the water. Combine these improvements with the use of a water softener and you’ll have all around better experiences drinking tap water as well as bathing and washing your clothes.
If you want to remove water contaminants as they enter your house consider using a whole-house water filter.
