If you have issues with your home’s water, your best option may be to install a whole house water filter system. Whole house water filtration can improve your water quality, including softness, taste, clarity, and even function by eliminating contaminants and filtering out pollutants that seep into your water lines. There are two primary types of whole house water filtration systems to choose from, each with their own functions and attributes.
Continue reading to learn about both systems, as well as, how to get started improving the quality of water in your home!
The type of filter your whole house system will require depends on the type of contaminants you need to remove from your water, which largely depends on where you get your water, such as the city, a well, or a spring. Carbon filters are recommended for contaminants like chlorine, chloramines, odor and VOC’s (volatile organic compounds). Iron filters are recommended for rust, orange and brown staining, and other oxidation issues.
Furthermore, you may require a water softening system in addition to a whole house system if your water is hard. This is especially recommended for those who get their water from a well or spring. Any whole house water filtration system pairs well with a water softener.
The Two Primary Whole House Water Filter Systems:
❶ Heavy Duty Filtration System
The first type of whole house water filtration system that is popular for residential properties is a heavy duty filtration system. Because these systems utilize a large filter method, they are suggested of being among the highest-performing contaminant elimination systems on the market. Best of all, these systems do not require a filter change for 5 to 10 years!
❷ Standard Capacity Water Cartridge
The second type of whole house water filtration system commonly found in residential settings is a standard capacity water cartridge. Residing within a durable filter housing, a capacity water cartridge works by treating contaminated water. These systems are cheaper than whole house systems, however, they require a higher level of maintenance since the filters must be replaced every year.
