Are Whole House Water Filtration Systems Worth It?

Pure water is very important, whether it’s for drinking, cooking or cleaning. If you use municipal water, you can be sure it’s been treated and meets regulations, but this won’t get rid of all contaminants, such as chlorine that’s added to kill bacteria. Additionally, the water may pick up other contaminants between the treatment works and your property due to outdated infrastructure.

Well water is less reliable and is of course untreated. It may contain various contaminants that have seeped in from the surrounding land, typically agricultural pesticides and industrial pollution. Some contamination may be obvious because the water has a bad odor, tastes unpleasant or is not clear. Others, however, are not so obvious and you need to be sure what your water contains.

Weighing Up the Costs and Benefits

To answer the question ‘Are whole house water filtration systems worth it?’, you need to consider a number of factors:

  •  the condition of your water, which you can only determine after conducting a free water test; this will identify any problems and determine the action you need to take to correct them
  •  the source of the water, since municipal water will generally only contain contaminants the water company has added, such as chlorine and fluoride, while well water can have a variety of problems
  •  the amount you have to spend, which will include ongoing maintenance and replacement water filters in addition to the purchase price
  •  whether you need a whole house system to purify all your water or if only a point-of-use system is needed for drinking water
  •  the financial savings you are likely to make; these can be substantial and include the cost of buying bottled water, repair and replacement costs for damaged appliances and pipework, and additional energy costs caused by equipment not working efficiently.

Benefits you Cannot Measure

In addition to the financial implications of installing a whole house water filtration system, there are also many other benefits that are difficult to measure. These include:

  •  water that tastes better, both for drinking and cooking
  •  skin and hair that look shinier and healthier due to improved washing conditions
  •  clothes that are cleaner and crockery and cutlery that are free from smears
  •  improvements to skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis
  •  appliances that work better for longer and an improved water flow.

A good and comprehensive water filtration system will remove all types of contaminants by incorporating filters that are intended for particular problems. The system can also soften hard water and bring pure and sparkling water to every outlet in your property. At Aqua Pro Water Systems, we’ll help you identify any water problems you have, advise what you need to correct them and then install and maintain the necessary system so your water is always pure.

Whether you have municipal water or you obtain it from a well, you can’t take risks with the health and well-being of your family. So, in terms of peace of mind alone, a whole house water system is certainly worth it.
