Should You Consider a Water Filter for Your Home?

What water source do you consider to be the cleanest? For some people, their idea of the cleanest drinking water might come from their trusted pitcher with a built-in water filter, a spout from their refrigerator, or even a filtration system attached to a sink head. But most of America prefers bottled water over any other source, having spent $31 billion on bottled water in 2018. 

While the EPA assures that tap water is perfectly fine, Americans have shown with their wallets that they still want the security of filtered water. The greatest solution to water security in your home can be a whole home water filtration system, installed by a plumbing professional. 

What is a Whole Home Water Filtration System?

Whole home filtration systems are extremely versatile and can target any contaminant you're seeing in your water, or one you're trying to avoid. These systems are typically installed at the water's POE, or point of entry, to your home, typically the main water line. This ensures that all the water being used throughout your home has passed through this point and that all the water delivered to each faucet and appliance has been filtered.

Some of the biggest benefits of having one of these state-of-the-art systems in your home are not only removing contaminants, but also removing a smell from your water, extending the lifespan of your appliances and pipes, and ultimately giving you and your family assurance that your water intake meets and exceeds your standards. 

Environmental Impacts 

Having a whole home water filtration system in your home can absolutely eliminate your family's need to purchase disposable pitcher filters, and most of all bottled water made of single-use plastics. As an added benefit, you may be able to go longer without needing to replace or upgrade appliances that use water.

In fact, 60 million plastic water bottles are thrown away in the US every single day. Using some type of main line filter or under-the-sink filtration system can help you and your family combat plastic waste by filling up reusable bottles with your home's filtered water.

All of these filter types have the singular benefit of not only giving you peace of mind when consuming and using water in your home, but can prolong the lifespan of your home's appliances, reducing appliance waste and saving you money in the long run.

What Are the Next Steps? 

If you think a whole home filtration system might be the right choice for your home, contact Coleman Plumbing to talk about having a system installed to fit your specific needs. For example, if you're seeing hard water build up, it may be best to use a water softener type filter. If you're smelling an excess of chlorine, using a carbon filter can help remove the chloramines in your home's water. Another common substance homeowners will target with a filtration system is sediment, such as dirt or sand, which can be filtered out using a sediment filter.

Coleman Plumbing has prompt and courteous plumbing professionals that can assist you in selecting a filter type and install your system with ease.
