The Importance of Home Water Filtration and Purification

When you run the faucet on your kitchen or bathroom sink, you’re expecting clean, safe water to flow out. But even if the water looks clear, it may still contain toxic chemicals that are hazardous to your family’s health and well-being. A lot of people dislike the taste of polluted tap water and grasp the risks of drinking it. That’s why half of all American households use either a home water treatment system (32 percent) or bottled water (18 percent) to ensure they have clean drinking water at home. 

If you want to protect your family’s health, you may first consider going the bottled water approach. Unfortunately, this gets expensive fast. Additionally, plastic water bottles that don’t get recycled end up contaminating the world’s waterways, causing harm to the environment and wiping out marine life. 

Setting up a whole-house water filtration system is more cost-efficient and healthier for the environment than using so much bottled water. It may also deliver healthier water more conveniently because you can get it straight from the tap. In addition, whole-house systems supply purified water to your showers, tubs and plumbing appliances, helping you to maximize the benefits anywhereyou use water in your home. 

Before setting up a whole-house water filtration system, learn what’s in your water supply and how a Filtermax™ Superior Chemical Removal Filter can clear out unhealthy contaminants. Then, get in touch with Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing to help you pick out and install the best water filter for you. 

What’s in Your Drinking Water? 

Water quality varies by location, but several of the most prevalent contaminants include: 

  • Heavy metals 
  • Chlorine 
  • Lead 
  • Industrial chemicals 
  • Disinfection byproducts (DBPs) 

Learn what may be in your home’s tap water by entering your ZIP Code into the Environmental Working Group’s drinking water quality database. EWG records show that above 80 percent of utility water supplies in North America have tested positive for carcinogenic chemicals, revealing that regulated water quality levels are not necessarily safe. 

Think About Installing a Filtermax Water Filtration System 

The Filtermax Superior Chemical Removal Filter traps dirt, debris and dangerous chemicals from your faucets, furnishing you and your family with safe, clean water to enjoy. Here are the perks of this system: 

  • Sediment filtration: Cloudiness is a sure sign of contaminants in your drinking water. Comprised of silt, sand, rust or clay, sediment is naturally occurring and can become concentrated in the water main following severe storms. While typically harmless, sediment will make your drinking water look and taste unpleasant. Filtermax offers sediment filtration to remove solids from your drinking water. 
  • Chlorine removal: Chlorine is crucial to clean drinking water in urban settings. Sadly, this disinfectant also adds harmful chemical byproducts when it mixes with naturally occurring organic and inorganic substances in the water. Certain DPBs, like trihalomethanes (THMs), are found to cause cancer. Filtermax eliminates these carcinogens to protect your family. 
  • Safer, cleaner, better-tasting water: Guaranteeing safe tap water is the objective of adding putting in any water filtration equipment. Besides being healthier for your family to drink, filtered water also smells, tastes and looks better. No more lingering metallic or musty scents. No more earthy or chlorine flavor. No more muddy water swirling around your cup. Just clean-tasting, odorless, crystal-clear water. 
  • Filtered water to every tap: Toxic chemicals don’t just impact you when ingested—they also absorb into your skin when you shower and stick to your clothing and dishes when you clean them. That’s why a whole-house filtration system is so helpful because it provides clean water from every tap. 
  • No operating expenses or water going to waste: Some whole-house filtration systems raise your electric bills. Others raise your water bills with automatic backwashing and flushing. Filtermax demonstrates that safe, clean water doesn’t have to include bigger utility costs. 
  • Flow-through distributor: Depending on your plumbing system’s configuration, you could need an upflow or downflow water filter. The Filtermax™ flow-through distributor features both designs to accommodate your needs. 
  • 20-year manufacturer warranty: This is the best warranty in the water treatment equipment industry! With this coverage, you know your investment will continue providing clean, quality drinking water for a long, long time.
