What is a whole house water filtration system?
A whole house water filtration system filters out the contaminants you do not want in the household water supply. These water treatment systems are installed where your main water line enters your home. By installing it at the entry point, your whole house system will deliver filtered water to all of your taps and appliances including your hot water heater, washing machines, shower heads, etc.
Are there different types of whole house water filtration systems?
Yes, there are many types of water treatment systems, which are determined by your water quality and the problems you’re trying to resolve with the whole house filtration system. If you are using city water, the variety of products is a little more limited as the goal is really just to get rid of chlorine and the taste and odor that comes from the disinfectant that municipalities put in the water supply. It’s great that the city disinfects the water because it greatly reduces illnesses, and even deaths, caused by typhoid, cholera, or diphtheria. However, once chlorine gets to your home, it can be removed so that you can drink, wash clothes, take showers, etc. with water that is not chlorinated.
If you use water from a well supply, there are whole house filtration options for different water problems, including chemicals, minerals, or gases like hydrogen sulfide that give a rotten egg smell. Eliminating such contaminants may involve many steps and different technologies. The list of different whole house water filtration systems is long, again it just depends on the issues you are experiencing with the water in your home.
What’s the difference between a whole house water filter and an under-sink filter?
A whole house filter treats water at its point of entry into the home, filtering or treating every drop of water that enters the home and distributes throughout the house. This includes the water used for washing clothes, flushing toilets, taking showers, brushing teeth, cooking, drinking etc. An under the sink filter only filters the water that comes out of that particular sinks faucet.
How do you install a whole house system?
To effectively filter and treat all of the water going through a home, the whole house water filtration system needs to be installed at the earliest point possible, right where the water line from the city comes into the house. On city water, a filter can reduce chlorine, sediment, or even ultraviolet disinfection. If a city’s disinfection process fails or equipment doesn’t work properly or a catastrophic event like a flood occurs, a UV system in your home will provide protection. For homes using a well water supply, the filtration system goes right after the pressure tank to catch every drop of water going into the house. On well water, ultraviolet disinfection typically works best as the last thing in the system that includes a variety of filters. For safety and functionality purposes, you always need to make sure that a professional plumber, like Mike Counsil Plumbing, installs your water treatment system.
When should you use whole house filtration?
The problem may be as simple as getting rid of chlorine taste and odor caused by city water, or heavy hardness caused by well supply water. “Hard” water can really be miserable in the home. If your water is hard, you’ll have scale on the shower curtains, scale on the shower head, and/or discoloration in your dishwasher. Or you may be experiencing issues with your water supplies having lots of mineral content or even chemicals. A whole house filter can help with all of these problems, providing you and your family with clean, safe water throughout the entire home.
