The Importance of Home Water Filtration and Purification

When you run the faucet on your kitchen or bathroom sink, you expect clean, healthy water to flow out. But even if the water appears clear, it might still be hiding toxic chemicals that pose a threat to your family’s health and well-being. A lot of people dislike the taste of contaminated tap water and recognize the risk of drinking it. That’s why half of all American households have either a home water treatment system (32 percent) or bottled water (18 percent) to guarantee they have healthy drinking water at home.

If you want to protect your family’s well-being, you might first consider trying the bottled water plan. Sadly, this gets expensive almost immediately. Additionally, plastic water bottles that don’t get recycled end up damaging the world’s waterways, causing harm to the environment and hurting marine life.

Setting up a whole-house water filtration system is more cost-efficient and healthier for the environment than using so much bottled water. It may also provide healthier water more easily because you can get it directly from the tap. What's more, whole-house systems send purified water to your showers, tubs and plumbing appliances, enabling you to capitalize on the benefits wherever you use water in your home.

Before setting up a whole-house water filter, learn about what’s in your water and how a Filtermax™ Superior Chemical Removal Filter can filter out hazardous contaminants. Then, choose Bob Brown Service Experts to help you choose and install the best water filter for you.

What’s in Your Water Supply?

Water quality varies by location, but a few of the most prevalent contaminants are:

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

Learn what’s in your water supply 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 tested positive for carcinogenic chemicals, revealing that lawful water quality levels are not necessarily safe.

Think About Installing a Filtermax Water Filtration System

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

  • Sediment filtration: Cloudiness is a sure sign of contaminants in your drinking water. Consisting of silt, sand, rust or clay, sediment is naturally occurring and can accumulate in the water main after heavy rains. While largely harmless, sediment will make your drinking water look and taste unpleasant. Filtermax provides sediment filtration to remove solids from your drinking water.
  • Chlorine removal: Chlorine is vital to clean drinking water in dense cities. Sadly, this disinfectant can generate hazardous chemical byproducts when it mixes with naturally occurring organic and inorganic materials in the water. Certain DPBs, including trihalomethanes (THMs), are known to cause cancer. Filtermax gets rid of these carcinogens to protect your family.
  • Safer, cleaner, better-tasting water: Guaranteeing safe tap water is the goal of installing any water filtration solution. Besides being safer for your family to enjoy, filtered water also smells, tastes and looks better. No more lasting metallic or musty scents. No more earthy or chlorine taste. No more muddy 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 adhere to your clothing and dishes when you clean them. That’s why a whole-house filtration system is so worthwhile because it guarantees clean water from every tap.
  • No operating expenses or water going to waste: Some whole-house filtration systems increase your electric bills. Others increase your water bills with automatic backwashing and flushing. Filtermax illustrates that clean water doesn’t have to bring higher utility costs.
  • Flow-through distributor: Based on your plumbing system’s configuration, you could need an upflow or downflow water filter. The Filtermax™ flow-through distributor contains both designs to satisfy your needs.
  • 20-year manufacturer warranty: This is the best warranty in the water treatment equipment industry! With this coverage, you can be sure your investment will continue providing clean, quality drinking water for a long, long time..
