The Importance of Home Water Filtration and Purification

When you turn the faucet on your kitchen or bathroom sink, you’re expecting clean, healthy water to flow out. But even if the water seems clear, it may still contain toxic chemicals that present a risk to your family’s health and safety. A lot of people don’t like the taste of contaminated tap water and understand the risks of drinking it. That’s why half of all American households use 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 safeguard your family’s well-being, you might first consider trying the bottled water approach. Sadly, this gets pricey almost immediately. In addition, plastic water bottles that aren’t recycled end up contaminating the world’s waterways, harming the environment and wiping out marine life. 

Setting up a whole-house water filtration system is more cost-effective and cleaner for the environment than buying bottled water. It will also supply healthier water more conveniently because you can get it straight from the tap. In addition, whole-house systems send purified water to your showers, tubs and plumbing fixtures, enabling you to maximize the benefits everywhereyou use water in your home. 

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

What’s in Your Drinking Water? 

Water quality fluctuates by location, but several of the most prevalent contaminants are: 

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

Learn what could be in your water supply by entering your ZIP Code into the Environmental Working Group’s drinking water quality database. EWG records show that greater than 80 percent of utility water supplies in North America tested positive for carcinogenic chemicals, revealing that legal water quality levels are not necessarily safe. 

Try Installing a Filtermax Water Filtration System 

The Filtermax Superior Chemical Removal Filter filters out dirt, debris and dangerous chemicals from your faucets, supplying you and your family with safe, healthy water to drink. Here are the advantages of this system: 

  • Sediment filtration: Cloudiness is a frequent sign of sediment in your drinking water. Composed of silt, sand, rust or clay, sediment naturally occurs and can accumulate in the water main soon after heavy rains. While largely harmless, sediment makes your drinking water appear and taste unpleasant. Filtermax provides sediment filtration to remove solids from your drinking water. 
  • Chlorine removal: Chlorine is vital to clean drinking water in urban settings. Unfortunately, this disinfectant also adds hazardous chemical byproducts when it reacts with naturally occurring organic and inorganic compounds in the water. Some DPBs, such as trihalomethanes (THMs), are known to cause cancer. Filtermax eliminates these carcinogens to keep your family safe. 
  • Safer, cleaner, better-tasting water: Ensuring safe tap water is the goal of adding putting in any water filtration equipment. Besides being safer for your family to drink, filtered water also smells, tastes and looks better. No more lingering metallic or musty odors. No more earthy or chlorine taste. No more murky water swirling around your glass. Just clean-tasting, odorless, crystal-clear water. 
  • Filtered water at every tap: Harmful chemicals don’t just threaten you when ingested—they also absorb into your skin as 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 ensures clean water from every tap. 
  • No operating expenses or wasted water: Some whole-house filtration systems add to your electric bills. Others add to your water bills with automatic backwashing and flushing. Filtermax proves that clean water doesn’t have to bring higher utility costs. 
  • Flow-through distributor: Based on your plumbing system’s configuration, you may need an upflow or downflow water filter. The Filtermax™ flow-through distributor features 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 have certainty your investment will keep providing clean, quality drinking water for many years to come.
