Do You Need to Filter Your Water Before It Enters Your Home?
Water filtration means different things to different people. Are we talking about a countertop drip container filter for drinking water? Or, what about a reverse osmosis tap at the kitchen sink? What if you have a showerhead filter? Yes, all of those will have some level of water purification but what about the rest of the water in your home? Hard, chlorinated water can ruin faucet finishes, leave white spots all over your shower door, and damage toilet parts, (not to mention your clothes, skin, and hair). Also, the majority of water our bodies use comes through our skin during showering. So that point-of-use filter at the kitchen sink? It provides a sense of safety but it doesn’t contribute much to protecting your home or your health.
We recommend every home have a point-of-entry water filtration system. There are different systems for well water versus municipal water and different systems can address unique water quality issues, such as heavy iron in well water or removing chlorine from municipal water. The key point here is that purifying the water right as it enters the house, before it branches off to individual faucets or showers is the best way to protect your family’s health and your home’s plumbing system. Add healthier skin and hair, better care of your clothes, and no more hard water stains and it just makes good sense to filter your water before it enters the home.
