Finding Your Ideal Water Filtration System
So, you’re considering adding a water filtration system to your home, congratulations. It’s a significant first step to having safer, better-tasting water. But what is the right kind of system for your home? A number of factors can go into the best type of filtration system for your home. With that in mind, here is a guide- Tailored Solutions: Finding Your Ideal Water Filtration System.
What Does a Filtration System Remove from Your Water?
Whether you are on well or municipal water, you are exposed to several chemicals and microbes. Even water undergoing treatment plants can still have traces of fecal matter and germs. Water filtration systems can also soften hard water that contains iron and other minerals and metals. Here are some of the issues that a water filtration system can remove:
- Discolored orange and brown water that stains showers and sinks
- Sulphur odors
- Blue and green stains
- Metallic tasting water
- Sediments like sand and salt
- Yellow stains on your glasses and silverware.
What Type of Water Filtration Works Best for You?
If you are only worried about your drinking water and ensuring the maximum amount of contaminants are removed, then an under-the-sink filtration, but if you have hard water and staining, a whole home filtration system is.
What Kind of Filtration Systems Exist?
Reverse Osmosis Water Softeners
These filtration systems use water as a semipermeable membrane that extracts up to 98% of water impurities. This kind of water softener is especially good at removing calcium and magnesium. While keeping that fact in mind, you need to ensure you are getting plenty of calcium and magnesium from other sources.
This filtration system is the most used type of water softener in people’s homes. It removes calcium and magnesium ions and swaps them with sodium ions, which are far less harmful than calcium and magnesium ions. The unit has a big tank that holds salt pellets. If you’ve seen a water softener at someone’s home, it was probably an ion exchange softener.
What Water Filtration System Should You Get?
The bottom line when choosing a water filtration system for your house is that it fits your needs and budget. While a whole-home water filtration system is a handy tool, if you don’t have hard water, it’s unnecessary. On the other hand, if you have a hard scale in your water and are only trying to filter it under your sink, there are a host of problems that will continue to exist. The best way to decide about water filtration in your home is to have your water tested and then discuss it with a Water Specialist.
