Why Invest an a Whole-House Water Filtration System?
Investing in a whole-house water filtration system can provide several benefits for you and your family:
- Improved water quality: A whole-house water filtration system can remove impurities, such as chlorine, lead, and other contaminants that may be present in your tap water. This means you'll have clean, fresh water throughout your home, which can lead to better-tasting drinking water and better-quality water for cooking, cleaning, and bathing.
- Health benefits: Some contaminants in tap water can have harmful health effects, such as gastrointestinal illness, developmental problems in children, and more. A whole-house water filtration system can help remove these contaminants, leading to improved health and wellbeing.
- Cost savings: By investing in a whole-house water filtration system, you may be able to save money in the long run. For example, you won't need to buy bottled water or use as many cleaning products to mitigate mineral scale buildup from hard water. Better quality water can also preserve your plumbing system and appliances, saving you money on repairs or early replacement
- Environmental benefits: Using a whole-house water filtration system can also benefit the environment. By reducing the amount of plastic water bottles you use, you'll help reduce plastic waste, which is an important step towards reducing your carbon footprint.

The types and levels of contaminants in tap water can vary depending on the source of the water and the treatment processes it undergoes. Some of the most common contaminants found in tap water include:
- Chlorine: Chlorine is often added to tap water as a disinfectant to kill bacteria and other pathogens. However, high levels of chlorine can affect the taste and smell of the water and may be harmful to health.
- Lead: Lead can enter tap water through older pipes and fixtures, particularly in homes built before the 1980s. Exposure to lead can cause developmental and behavioral problems in children, as well as kidney and nervous system damage in adults.
- Pesticides and herbicides: These chemicals are commonly used in agriculture and can leach into groundwater, which can then end up in tap water. Exposure to pesticides and herbicides can have harmful effects on human health, including cancer and reproductive problems.
- Pharmaceuticals: Small amounts of pharmaceuticals such as antibiotics, birth control pills, and antidepressants have been found in tap water. Although the levels are typically low, long-term exposure can have potential health risks.
- Nitrate: Nitrate is a naturally occurring compound that can enter tap water from fertilizer runoff, sewage, and animal waste. High levels of nitrate can be harmful to infants and pregnant women, causing a condition called methemoglobinemia, also known as "blue baby syndrome."
- Bacteria and viruses: Bacteria and viruses can enter tap water through various sources, such as sewage overflows, animal waste, and untreated water sources. Exposure to these contaminants can lead to gastrointestinal illnesses.
