The Importance of Home Water Filtration and Purification

When you use the faucet on your kitchen or bathroom sink, you anticipate clean, healthy water to flow out. But even if your water appears clear, it could still contain toxic chemicals that pose a threat to your family’s health and safety. A lot of people do not like the taste of contaminated tap water and grasp the risks of drinking it. That’s why half of all American households use either a home water treatment system (32 percent) or bottled water (18 percent) to make sure they have healthy drinking water on hand.

If you want to safeguard your family’s health, you may first think about continuing the bottled water approach. But of course, this gets costly soon. In addition, plastic water bottles that aren't recyclable end up polluting the world’s waterways, causing harm to the environment and killing marine life.

Installing a whole-house water filtration system is more cost-effective and cleaner for the environment than buying bottled water. It will also supply healthier water more conveniently because you can get it right from the tap. In addition, whole-house systems provide purified water to your showers, tubs and plumbing fixtures, allowing you to capitalize on the benefits anywhere you use water at home.

Before putting in a whole-house water filter, find out what’s in your drinking water and how a Filtermax™ Superior Chemical Removal Filter can filter out harmful contaminants. Then, get in touch with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning to help you find and install the ideal water filter for you.

What’s in Your Water Supply?

Water quality varies by location, but some of the most likely contaminants include:

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

Learn what’s in your home's tap water by entering your ZIP Code into the Environmental Working Group’s drinking water quality database. EWG files show that above 80 percent of utility water supplies in North America at one point tested positive for carcinogenic chemicals, demonstrating that legal water quality levels may not be necessarily safe.

Consider Installing a Filtermax Water Filtration System

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

  • Sediment filtration: Cloudiness is a frequent sign of sediment in your drinking water. Comprised of silt, sand, rust or clay, sediment naturally occurs and can become concentrated in the water main soon after heavy rains. While generally harmless, sediment will make your drinking water appear and taste unpleasant. Filtermax offers sediment filtration to filter out solids from your drinking water.
  • Chlorine removal: Chlorine is vital to clean drinking water in urban settings. Unfortunately, this disinfectant creates hazardous chemical byproducts when it meets naturally occurring organic and inorganic substances in the water. Some DPBs, including trihalomethanes (THMs), are shown to cause cancer. Filtermax gets rid of these carcinogens to protect your family.
  • Safer, cleaner, better-tasting water: Providing safe tap water is the objective of installing any water filtration equipment. Besides being cleaner for your family to enjoy, filtered water also smells, tastes and looks better. No more lingering metallic or musty scents. No more earthy or chlorine flavor. No more cloudy water swirling around your kitchen sink. Just clean-tasting, odorless, crystal-clear water.
  • Filtered water at 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 as you wash them. That’s why a whole-house filtration system is so beneficial because it guarantees clean water from every tap.
  • No operating expenses 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 demonstrates that clean water doesn’t have to come with higher utility costs.
  • Flow-through distributor: Based on your plumbing system’s setup, you may need an upflow or downflow water filter. The Filtermax™ flow-through distributor features both designs to accommodate your needs.
  • 20-year manufacturer warranty: This is one of the best warranties in the water treatment equipment industry! With this coverage, you know your investment will continue providing clean, quality drinking water for a long, long time..
