Everything about water filtration systems
Water filtration and water filters are the latest hot topic today, for very good reasons. Increasingly more people are drinking bottled water, for health issues and for the taste. Gossip magazines have candied shoots of the hottest stars doing whatever, but one thing I’ve noticed lately about 90% of the pictures also show a bottle of water. This doesn’t surprise me plain tap water just doesn’t taste the same. Recently, I added up the cost of the bottle water I had purchased for my family of four. The amount was astounding to the point, that I have now installed a home water filter system.
Water filters are relatively inexpensive and improve the overall taste of your tap water as well as the smell, and appearance. Many filters will also remove some harmful chemicals found in your drinking water. Currently there isn’t a better way of ensuring your drinking water and cooking water is as healthy as possible for you and your family. Compare a glass of bottled water to a glass of tap water. Look at the color, clarity and then smell both of them. Chances are, your tap water will be cloudy, and may smell of bleach.
There are numerous types of water filtration systems on the market, so take the time and read the product information so that you will purchase the type of filter for your needs. Depending on the type of water filter you choose to install, they can be extremely effective in removing specific substances. Some filters are more specific than others are and more effective.
The filter I have installed is designed especially to remove or lead. Other filters will remove chlorine. Neither of these two filters will remove microorganisms, which require a special filter. The chlorine filter and the filter to remove lead are intended for use with water that has already been tested and proven safe. Before purchasing a filtration system have an evaluation of your water done, this will tell you just what is in your water supply. You can purchase a simply water test kit from your local plumbing supply company and test your water yourself, or contact your city hall and request a copy of your town’s annual water report.
