When buying a system for filtering your water, you want to make the best decision possible. We drink water all day, so there’s no reason to purchase a filter that you aren’t satisfied with. Listed below are the qualities of a good water filtration system that you should consider. Keeping these factors in mind as you peruse a selection of filters will guarantee that you are happy with your choice.
Removing Contaminants From Your Water
The type of water filter you select should depend on what kind of contaminants are in your water. Have your water tested by professionals or research your city’s water quality report in order to see what contaminants your water has.
For removing sediment, scale and rust, it’s usually best to use a whole-house filtration system. If you find that your water pressure is low in your showers or sinks, you might have a build-up of particles in your system. A filter can help prevent these from blocking your water flow, and improve your overall water pressure.
If you need to remove chlorine byproducts, organic chemicals and industrial solvents from your water, it’s generally best to use a system that focuses on getting rid of contaminants in your drinking water. Not only will it increase you and your family’s safety, removing these substances will improve the taste of your water!
If your house has all of the contaminants listed above, you might need to use multiple systems. For example, the EcoWater Water Refiner will soften your water by removing minerals and sediment, while the EcoWater Drinking Water Systems will improve the quality of the water you consume.
To diagnose your water contaminants, you can reach out to an EcoWater professional for a comprehensive in-home water analysis. We will recommend the right water filtration system for your needs.
