The Importance of Home Water Filtration and Purification

When you run the faucet on your kitchen or bathroom sink, you expect clean, safe water to flow out. But even if your water seems clear, it could still be hiding toxic chemicals that are hazardous to your family’s health and safety. Plenty of people don’t like the taste of tainted tap water and recognize the consequences of drinking it. That’s why half of all American families keep either a home water treatment system (32 percent) or bottled water (18 percent) to guarantee they have healthy drinking water on hand. 

If you want to ensure your family’s well-being, you might first consider going the bottled water plan. Sadly, this gets costly fast. Plus, plastic water bottles that don’t get recycled end up damaging the world’s waterways, causing harm to the environment and killing marine life. 

Installing a whole-house water filtration system is more practical and cleaner for the environment than buying bottled water. It may also supply healthier water more conveniently because you can get it right from the tap. Additionally, whole-house systems provide purified water to your showers, tubs and plumbing fixtures, enabling you to capitalize on the benefits anywhereyou use water at home. 

Before putting in a whole-house water filter, find out what’s in your water and how a Filtermax™ Superior Chemical Removal Filter can filter out hazardous contaminants. Then, choose Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing to help you pick out and install the best water filter for you. 

What’s in Your Water Supply? 

Water quality fluctuates by location, but a few of the most common 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 files show that greater than 80 percent of utility water supplies in North America tested positive for carcinogenic chemicals, demonstrating that regulated water quality levels are not necessarily safe. 

Think About Installing a Filtermax Water Filtration System 

The Filtermax Superior Chemical Removal Filter eliminates dirt, debris and harmful chemicals from your tap, providing you and your family with safe, healthy water to drink. Here are the benefits of this system: 

  • Sediment filtration: Cloudiness is a frequent sign of contaminants in your drinking water. Comprised of silt, sand, rust or clay, sediment naturally occurs and can become concentrated in the water main after severe storms. While typically harmless, sediment will make your drinking water appear and taste unpleasant. Filtermax offers sediment filtration to clear out solids from your drinking water. 
  • Chlorine removal: Chlorine is the key to clean drinking water in urban settings. Sadly, this disinfectant creates dangerous chemical byproducts when it mixes with naturally occurring organic and inorganic compounds in the water. A few DPBs, such as trihalomethanes (THMs), are known to cause cancer. Filtermax removes these carcinogens to keep your family safe. 
  • Safer, cleaner, better-tasting water: Ensuring safe tap water is the objective of installing any water filtration system. Besides being cleaner for your family to drink, filtered water also smells, tastes and looks better. No more constant metallic or musty scents. No more earthy or chlorine flavor. No more murky water swirling around your cup. Just clean-tasting, odorless, crystal-clear water. 
  • Filtered water at every tap: Toxic chemicals don’t just threaten you when ingested—they also absorb into your skin when you shower and adhere to your clothing and dishes when you clean them. That’s why a whole-house filtration system is so beneficial because it guarantees clean water from every tap. 
  • No operating expenses or squandered water: Some whole-house filtration systems increase your electric bills. Others increase your water bills with automatic backwashing and flushing. Filtermax illustrates that clean water doesn’t have to include steeper utility costs. 
  • Flow-through distributor: Based on your plumbing system’s setup, you may 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 best warranties in the water treatment equipment industry! With this coverage, you can be sure your investment will continue providing clean, quality drinking water for many years to come.
