The Importance of Home Water Filtration and Purification

When you use the faucet on your kitchen or bathroom sink, you anticipate clean, healthy water to flow out. But even if your water appears clear, it may still carry toxic chemicals that are hazardous to your family’s health and well-being. Plenty of people dislike the taste of tainted tap water and grasp the risks of drinking it. That’s why half of all American homes have either a home water treatment system (32 percent) or bottled water (18 percent) to guarantee they have healthy drinking water nearby. 

If you want to ensure your family’s well-being, you may first consider continuing the bottled water approach. Sadly, this gets pricey almost immediately. Additionally, plastic water bottles that aren’t recyclable end up damaging the world’s waterways, harming the environment and wiping out marine life. 

Setting up a whole-house water filtration system is more practical and better for the environment than buying bottled water. It will also provide healthier water more easily because you can get it right from the tap. What’s more, whole-house systems send purified water to your showers, tubs and plumbing appliances, enabling you to make the most of the benefits everywhereyou use water in your home. 

Before putting in a whole-house water filter, learn what’s in your drinking water and how a Filtermax™ Superior Chemical Removal Filter can clear out harmful contaminants. Then, get in touch with Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing to help you choose and install the right water filter for you. 

What’s in Your Drinking Water? 

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

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

Learn what could be in your drinking water by entering your ZIP Code into the Environmental Working Group’s drinking water quality database. EWG records show that over 80 percent of utility water supplies in North America have tested positive for carcinogenic chemicals, demonstrating that regulated water quality levels aren’t necessarily safe. 

Try Installing a Filtermax Water Filtration System 

The Filtermax Superior Chemical Removal Filter traps dirt, debris and harmful chemicals from your faucets, providing you and your family with safe, sparkling water to drink. Here are the advantages of this system: 

  • Sediment filtration: Cloudiness is a sure sign of contaminants in your drinking water. Comprised of silt, sand, rust or clay, sediment naturally occurs and can accumulate in the water main soon after 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 environments like cities. However, this disinfectant also adds hazardous chemical byproducts when it meets naturally occurring organic and inorganic materials in the water. Some DPBs, such as trihalomethanes (THMs), are found to cause cancer. Filtermax gets rid of these carcinogens to protect your family. 
  • Safer, cleaner, better-tasting water: Providing safe tap water is the goal of adding putting in any water filtration solution. Besides being cleaner for your family to enjoy, filtered water also smells, tastes and looks better. No more lingering metallic or musty odors. No more earthy or chlorine flavor. No more cloudy water swirling around your kitchen sink. Just clean-tasting, odorless, crystal-clear water. 
  • Filtered water for every tap: Hazardous chemicals don’t just impact you when ingested—they also absorb into your skin as you shower and stick to your clothing and dishes as you wash them. That’s why a whole-house filtration system is so worthwhile because it ensures clean water from every tap. 
  • No operating expenses or squandered water: Some whole-house filtration systems increase your electric bills. Others raise your water bills with automatic backwashing and flushing. Filtermax proves that safe, clean water doesn’t have to bring higher 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 one of the best warranties in the water treatment equipment industry! With this coverage, you know your investment will carry on providing clean, quality drinking water for many years to come.
