The Importance of Home Water Filtration and Purification

When you turn the faucet on your kitchen or bathroom sink, you expect clean, safe water to flow out. But even if the water appears clear, it may still contain toxic chemicals that are hazardous to your family’s health and safety. Many people don’t like the taste of polluted tap water and recognize the risks of drinking it. That’s why half of all American households keep either a home water treatment system (32 percent) or bottled water (18 percent) to guarantee they have clean drinking water at home. 

If you want to protect your family’s health, you might first consider going the bottled water route. Sadly, this gets pricey fast. Plus, plastic water bottles that aren’t recycled end up damaging the world’s waterways, harming the environment and wiping out marine life. 

Installing a whole-house water filtration system is more cost-efficient and healthier for the environment than buying bottled water. It may also supply healthier water more easily because you can get it straight from the tap. In addition, whole-house systems provide purified water to your showers, tubs and plumbing fixtures, helping you to capitalize on the benefits everywhereyou use water in your home. 

Before installing a whole-house water filtration system, learn about what’s in your water supply and how a Filtermax™ Superior Chemical Removal Filter can filter out harmful contaminants. Then, get in touch with Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing to help you pick out and install the right water filter for you. 

What’s in Your Drinking Water? 

Water quality may differ by location, but a few of the most likely 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 have tested positive for carcinogenic chemicals, demonstrating that lawful water quality levels aren’t necessarily safe. 

Try Installing a Filtermax Water Filtration System 

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

  • Sediment filtration: Cloudiness is a common sign of sediment in your drinking water. Consisting of silt, sand, rust or clay, sediment is naturally occurring and can become concentrated in the water main soon after heavy rainfall. While generally harmless, sediment can make your drinking water appear and taste unpleasant. Filtermax provides sediment filtration to remove 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 reacts with naturally occurring organic and inorganic compounds in the water. Some DPBs, including trihalomethanes (THMs), are found to cause cancer. Filtermax eliminates these carcinogens to protect your family. 
  • Safer, cleaner, better-tasting water: Providing safe tap water is the goal of installing any water filtration equipment. Besides being healthier for your family to enjoy, filtered water also smells, tastes and looks better. No more lasting metallic or musty odors. No more earthy or chlorine taste. No more murky water swirling around your kitchen sink. 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 stick to your clothing and dishes when you wash them. That’s why a whole-house filtration system is so worthwhile because it ensures clean water from every tap. 
  • No operating costs or water going to waste: Some whole-house filtration systems raise your electric bills. Others add to your water bills with automatic backwashing and flushing. Filtermax proves that clean water doesn’t have to bring bigger utility costs. 
  • Flow-through distributor: Based on your plumbing system’s structure, you might need an upflow or downflow water filter. The Filtermax™ flow-through distributor contains both designs to cater to your needs. 
  • 20-year manufacturer warranty: This is one of the strongest warranties in the water treatment equipment industry! With this coverage, you can be sure your investment will continue providing clean, quality drinking water for a very long time.
