If you’re keen to have access to clean water at home, free from contaminants, and away from limescale or any potential risks of chemicals, bacteria, pesticides and so on, you may be tempted to invest in a whole house water filtration system.
What this means is that you’ll be able to experience filtered water throughout your entire households appliances and taps. Including the water you shower/bath with, helping get away from the skin drying minerals such as calcium, magnesium and iron; all adversely drying your skin by clogging the skin pores.
A single point of use system is perfectly fine if you only want water for consumption, but if you’re keen to have clean water elsewhere, whether that’s for baths, showers, washing up or the dishwasher, a whole house filter would be the best option for you, although we would always recommend a single point of use under the kitchen sink for drinking water.
What are the benefits of a whole house filter system?
One of the biggest benefits is that a wide range of impurities are removed from the water, including heavy metals like lead, pesticides and herbicides, bacteria, volatile organic compounds and chlorine.
And it’s also possible that you’ll see less limescale on appliances because filters are able to reduce this very successfully - so this would be a great option if you live somewhere in an area with hard water.
To find out if this kind of system is right for you and your home, the first step would be to work out what level of hardness the water is, as well as what contaminants exist and whether you need to have a microorganism treatment applied.
Also work out what kind of flow rate you have, since you need to make sure that your system is able to meet the requirements of your home. If you’d like any further help or advice, get in touch with us today.
