How to Choose a Whole House Water Filtration System?

If you have considered the pros and cons of a whole house water filtration system and concluded that you really do want to go the whole hog with this, that is the major decision made. Covering the whole house makes a lot of sense because it means the entire building is going to benefit from the best quality water available in America.

Now comes the question of which model to choose, and that depends on two main factors. First, how much purifying does your water need? Secondly, how big is your place?

A conversation with our water filtration experts will answer all your questions, but if you want to do some preliminary research, we are here to help.

So, what exactly is the problem with your water? Are you concerned that when you make some coffee or brew up one of the ever-growing range of teas, which can be subtle and need careful preparation, the water itself is having a negative effect on the taste?

Get Your Home Water Tested

It is best to be in possession of the full facts and science is well advanced in that area now, if you know where to look. Allow professionals to visit your property and take a sample of your raw material – what is currently coming out when you turn on a faucet. With a bit of luck there is nothing harmful to health in your water, but it is better to be safe than sorry. Find out if there are any causes for concern and if necessary you can implement a solution. 

Is It Really Just a Matter of Water Softening or Do You Need More?

If there are issues such as excess iron in your water, that can create staining, which may have influenced your decision to go down this route in the first place. Maybe there are rusty marks in the sink or bath. Those are telltale signs of iron and they look unsightly; they make you look bad, like you don’t care. You may be scrupulously houseproud and a stickler for hygiene, but those ruddy drip marks say otherwise. Getting rid of the iron content in your water will enable you to banish the marks and keep them away – because if you clean up but don’t stop the iron, the stains will just come back.

And that’s just the visual side of an iron problem. There is also the matter of smell and taste. “Rotten eggs” is a smell that is commonly cited, and it is as unpleasant as it sounds.

Chlorine is another common offender, and although that is a chemical taste/smell rather than one that suggests something is decomposing, it can ruin a nice pot of green tea, so it needs to be dealt with.

Maybe you just want to treat the water that comes into your kitchen, but if you’re going to do the job properly, you need a whole house water filtration system. So, look at the range of options and see which units will do the job for you. How many kitchens and bathrooms do you have? Look at the systems that will cope with that. If your place is anything from very compact to an average 2/3 bedroom private home, a correspondingly modest system will be all you need. If you have a lot of rooms, though, whether it’s just a big house or a hotel, you’ll need something more.
