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 your water appears clear, it could still be hiding toxic chemicals that pose a threat to your family’s health and safety. Plenty of people dislike the taste of tainted tap water and recognize the consequences of drinking it. That’s why half of all American families have either a home water treatment system (32 percent) or bottled water (18 percent) to guarantee they have safe drinking water nearby. 

If you want to protect your family’s health, you may first consider continuing the bottled water approach. Unfortunately, this gets pricey almost immediately. Plus, plastic water bottles that aren’t recyclable end up contaminating the world’s waterways, causing harm to the environment and killing marine life. 

Installing 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 directly from the tap. What’s more, whole-house systems supply purified water to your showers, tubs and plumbing appliances, enabling you to make the most of the benefits everywhereyou use water at home. 

Before installing a whole-house water filtration system, learn what’s in your water supply and how a Filtermax™ Superior Chemical Removal Filter can filter out unhealthy contaminants. Then, contact 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 some of the most likely contaminants are: 

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

Learn what’s in your drinking 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 at one point tested positive for carcinogenic chemicals, illustrating that legal water quality levels aren’t necessarily safe. 

Think About Installing a Filtermax Water Filtration System 

The Filtermax Superior Chemical Removal Filter filters out dirt, debris and dangerous chemicals from your tap, supplying you and your family with safe, sparkling water to enjoy. Here are the benefits of this system: 

  • Sediment filtration: Cloudiness is a common sign of contaminants in your drinking water. Consisting of silt, sand, rust or clay, sediment is naturally occurring and can become concentrated in the water main following heavy rains. While typically harmless, sediment makes your drinking water appear and taste unpleasant. Filtermax includes sediment filtration to clear out solids from your drinking water. 
  • Chlorine removal: Chlorine is the key to clean drinking water in urban environments like cities. Unfortunately, this disinfectant also adds harmful chemical byproducts when it mixes with naturally occurring organic and inorganic materials in the water. Certain DPBs, like trihalomethanes (THMs), are known to cause cancer. Filtermax gets rid of these carcinogens to keep your family healthy. 
  • Safer, cleaner, better-tasting water: Providing 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 lasting metallic or musty scents. No more earthy or chlorine taste. No more muddy water swirling around your cup. Just clean-tasting, odorless, crystal-clear water. 
  • Filtered water to every tap: Hazardous chemicals don’t just affect you when ingested—they also absorb into your skin when you shower and cling to your clothing and dishes as you wash them. That’s why a whole-house filtration system is so beneficial because it provides clean water from every tap. 
  • No operating costs or wasted 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 come with steeper utility costs. 
  • Flow-through distributor: Depending on your plumbing system’s setup, you might need an upflow or downflow water filter. The Filtermax™ flow-through distributor contains both designs to satisfy your needs. 
  • 20-year manufacturer warranty: This is the best warranty in the water treatment equipment industry! With this coverage, you can be sure your investment will carry on providing clean, quality drinking water for a long, long time.
