Whole house water filter systems do just what their name implies — they filter water that enters your home before it makes its way into different rooms. So, if you install a whole house system to reduce sediment, chlorine, chloramines, and other contaminants in your water, you'll enjoy cleaner, refreshing water in no time. It will not just clean water from the faucet, either. A whole house water filter cartridge will also clean the water in your shower, laundry, and dishwasher as well.
So, what’s the best whole house water filter for cleaning your water?
We will answer this question a little later on. First, let’s look at how a whole house filter cleans your water:
Why do you need a whole house water filter?
Whole house water filters remove harmful elements from your drinking water. Though many substances can enter the water supply, there are three categories that you should be the most concerned about: sediment, chemicals, and plastics. Over time, these three elements can wreak havoc on your drinking water, eventually causing damage to your appliances faucets etc and your health.
First, let’s take a look at sediments:
Sediments are tiny particles of rust, clay, sand, and other similar materials. They commonly work their way into water supplies after storms, though they can also get in with virtually no outside help. Since these sediments are so small, it’s very easy for them to enter the water before it reaches your home.
Generally, if you see buildup on your faucets or other surfaces it is mistakenly thought to be scale or calcium, there maybe calcium but a higher percentage is sediment-
when these are filtered out these deposits diminish dramatically in some homes completely.
Our filters stop the sediment.
