The Importance of Home Water Filtration and Purification

When you turn 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 could still be hiding toxic chemicals that pose a threat to your family’s health and safety. Plenty of people dislike the taste of contaminated tap water and understand the risk of drinking it. That’s why half of all American households keep either a home water treatment system (32 percent) or bottled water (18 percent) to make sure they have clean drinking water nearby. 

If you want to protect your family’s well-being, you may first consider going the bottled water route. Sadly, this gets pricey soon. Plus, plastic water bottles that aren’t recyclable end up contaminating the world’s waterways, harming the environment and hurting marine life. 

Installing a whole-house water filtration system is more cost-effective and better for the environment than buying bottled water. It will also deliver healthier water more conveniently because you can get it directly from the tap. What’s more, whole-house systems supply purified water to your showers, tubs and plumbing appliances, enabling you to capitalize on the benefits anywhereyou use water in your home. 

Before setting up a whole-house water filter, learn what’s in your drinking water and how a Filtermax™ Superior Chemical Removal Filter can eliminate hazardous contaminants. Then, contact 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 likely contaminants are: 

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

Learn what may be in your water supply by entering your ZIP Code into the Environmental Working Group’s drinking water quality database. EWG data shows that over 80 percent of utility water supplies in North America have tested positive for carcinogenic chemicals, illustrating that legal water quality levels aren’t necessarily safe. 

Think About Installing a Filtermax Water Filtration System 

The Filtermax Superior Chemical Removal Filter eliminates dirt, debris and hazardous chemicals from your tap water, furnishing you and your family with safe, sparkling water to enjoy. Here are the perks of this system: 

  • Sediment filtration: Cloudiness is a frequent sign of contaminants in your drinking water. Composed of silt, sand, rust or clay, sediment is abundant and can accumulate in the water main following severe storms. While generally harmless, sediment can make your drinking water look and taste unpleasant. Filtermax includes sediment filtration to filter out solids from your drinking water. 
  • Chlorine removal: Chlorine is crucial to clean drinking water in urban environments like cities. However, this disinfectant creates harmful chemical byproducts when it mixes with naturally occurring organic and inorganic compounds in the water. A few DPBs, including trihalomethanes (THMs), are known to cause cancer. Filtermax eliminates these carcinogens to protect your family. 
  • Safer, cleaner, better-tasting water: Ensuring safe tap water is the goal of adding putting in any water filtration system. Besides being cleaner for your family to drink, filtered water also smells, tastes and looks better. No more lingering metallic or musty smells. No more earthy or chlorine flavor. No more muddy water swirling around your kitchen sink. Just clean-tasting, odorless, crystal-clear water. 
  • Filtered water for every tap: Toxic chemicals don’t just impact you when ingested—they also absorb into your skin as you shower and stick to your clothing and dishes when you wash them. That’s why a whole-house filtration system is so helpful because it ensures clean water from every tap. 
  • No operating expenses or wasted water: Some whole-house filtration systems raise your electric bills. Others add to your water bills with automatic backwashing and flushing. Filtermax illustrates that healthy water doesn’t have to include steeper utility costs. 
  • Flow-through distributor: Depending on your plumbing system’s structure, you might need an upflow or downflow water filter. The Filtermax™ flow-through distributor includes both designs to cater to your needs. 
  • 20-year manufacturer warranty: This is one of the strongest warranties in the water treatment equipment industry! With this coverage, you can be sure your investment will continue providing clean, quality drinking water for a very long time.
