Whole House Water Filters
A whole house water filter is a great option for those people that own their own home and want to have fresh clean purified water throughout the entire house. Whole house water filters are usually more expensive than other types of water filters because they are more robust and offer more overall value.
Why get a whole house water filter?
A lot of home owners enjoy being able to have filtered water throughout the entire house without the worry of having to get drinking water out of a specific faucet or pitcher.
Having a whole house water filter also removes the need to have shower water filters for the bathrooms as all the water including the water in the bathrooms is being filtered. Unlike a shower water filter a whole house water filter will also filter bath water along with the shower water.
It is also possible to install whole house water filters on only parts of the water system so that water that doesn’t need filtering wouldn’t use up the life of the filter cartridges. Examples of water you might not need to filter are toilet water, washing machine water, water for the sprinkler system, etc.
These types of filtration systems are also very flexible in terms of what they filter out of your water. A number of brands of whole house water filters offer the option to include extra filter stages depending on what contaminants you are concerned about. Different areas of the world often have different water contaminants, so having the versatility to choose between different filter stages is important.
Not only is a whole house water filter a good long term investment in you and your family’s health but it also is a good investment in your house. The addition of a whole house water filter can raise the over all value of your home.
While whole house water filters do require special installation in the long run they generally require less maintenance as the filter cartridges don’t need to be replaced as often as other water filter models.
Whole house water filters generally specify a maximum flow rate. Make sure to pick a filtration system that meets your flow rate needs.
