Do You Need to Install a Whole House Water Filter?

Do you need to install a whole house water filter? This may be a thing worth considering. However, you may be determined to buy a whole house water filter, when you know the pollutants in the water that they may threaten your health. You need to know the water quality in your city and buy a reliable whole house water filter.

What Pollutants May be In Your water?

All sources of water whether it be a lake, river, glacier or well, contain some level of contamination. Contaminants range from naturally occurring minerals to man-made chemicals and byproducts. Water from surface water (river or lake) can be exposed to acid rain, storm water runoff, pesticide runoff and industrial waste. Water from groundwater (private wells or public water supplies), can be contaminated by disease-producing pathogens, leachate from landfills and septic systems, hazardous household products and agricultural chemicals.

The majorities of contaminant levels are not high enough to cause immediate sickness but are more likely to cause chronic health effects. This means effects that occur long after repeated exposure to small amounts of a contaminant.

Most Popular Types of Whole House Water Filters

standard filter

Installing a whole house water system can solve a wide range of problems affecting your water quality, taste, or appearance of the water. Whole house water filters remove contaminants from your water through a filter connected to your water line. All of the water coming into your house will pass through the filter before being routed to faucets, toilets and appliances in the house. The types of contaminants that you will need to remove or treat your water with will vary based on whether you receive water from a municipal system, well, or spring. Generally, those on city water are recommended to use a whole house carbon filtration system for general multi-purpose whole house purification. Carbon filtration is effective in removing chlorine, chloramines, odor and VOCs to provide chemical free water throughout your entire home. If you have specific water contaminant issues such as iron, fluoride, sediment, or bacteria, you will you need a whole house system catered to removing that particular contaminant. For example, if you have orange and brown iron staining around the fixtures in your home, you will need a whole house iron filter to remove the staining throughout the home. A whole house softener does not work as a filter, but works to soften hard water. A whole house softener is recommended if you require soft water for a scale free environment and spotless glassware. A softener can be combined with any whole house water filter and work together to provide clean and soft water throughout every faucet.

heavy duty filter

There are two main types of whole house systems. The first type of system is a heavy duty filtration system. This is the highest performing contaminant removal system because of the large amounts of filter media used. The media is placed in a tank about 50” tall and provides you with specific contaminant protection for 5-10 years before the media needs to be replaced. A second type of system is a standard capacity water cartridge. These whole house water filter cartridges are placed inside durable filter housings to treat the contaminated water throughout the entire home. The filters are typically 4.5" Diameter by 10" or 20" Height and are replaced annually. These standard capacity systems are more affordable, but do require a bit more maintenance.

While water from a municipal source is treated, it is still exposing you to a handful of contaminants. A whole house system provides you with extra protection in every outlet of your home. Contaminants can be absorbed through the skin and inhaled from our lungs, so it is extremely important to be protected throughout the entire home. If you have no special water contaminant issues then a whole house carbon filtration system is recommended for general multi-purpose whole house water filter. If you have special water concerns then you would need a whole house system dedicated to treat that problem.
