How to Choose an Eco-Friendly Water Filter for Your Home

If you decide to invest in a water filter to commence or continue your planet-saving efforts, you’ll need to ensure you have the correct type of filter system for the job. Now, not all water filters are created equal. So, which filter system should you choose? Let’s break down the different water filtration systems to help you decide which is best for you.

Whole-House Water Filters
Whole-house water filters  remove harmful contaminants and impurities in the water from every faucet in your home for cleaner water for drinking, cooking, doing the dishes and laundry, showering, and more. Since Whole-house filters filters reduce up to 99.9 percent of chlorine, lead, pesticides, and other contaminants, your water will taste and smell better. You can also take your whole-house system one step further by adding a sediment filter to remove large particles and particulate matter, a UV filter to eliminate up to 99.9 percent of bacteria and viruses, and a water softener to combat hard water. Perhaps the biggest downside to this type of filter is its upfront cost (although you’ll end up spending less over time as opposed to buying bottled water), and you cannot bring it around with you (quick fix: you can still fill up a reusable water bottle for when you’re away from home).

Under-Sink Water Filters
Another fantastic option for getting clean drinking water in your home is with an under-sink water filter. If you only want to filter the water at a single faucet, say, your kitchen faucet, an under-sink water filter is an excellent fit. Under-sink filters are a great alternative to whole-house filters because they are easier to install, portable, and usually less expensive. They are also perfect for filtering heavy metals, such as lead, fluoride, arsenic, chlorine, chloramines, and other unwanted toxic contaminants in water. 

Countertop Water Filters
Countertop water filters provide an easy way to get great-tasting, healthy water with minimal or no installation. While they don’t provide water for the entire home, like a whole house filter, they offer the same clean, fresh water to a single faucet – without requiring a permanent fixture. That means quicker and easier installation. Water pitchers are a popular type of countertop filter. These devices use gravity to trickle water through filters, while other countertop filters use electricity to provide clean water instantly.

The Best Water Filter for Your Home
Choosing the best type and model water filter for your home will depend on a few factors, such as your water source, filtration requirement, the specific contaminants plaguing your water supply, if any, your budget, etc.
