What is a Whole House Water Filtration System?

When you are improving the water quality in your home with Kinetico products you will have several choices, depending on the severity of the problem and the extent to which you want to go. If what really concerns you is the water that comes out of the faucets, you may get an under-sink filtration system installed. This will ensure your drinking and cooking water is as pure as you want it, with no tainting, no unwanted smells and tastes to spoil your drinks and food.

However, there can be impurities in your water supply, regardless of the source of the water. It may seem more natural to be suspicious of water that comes from a well, because being closer to nature in that respect also means being without the benefit of human scientific intervention, but even if your supply is municipal, meaning it has come through official channels and undergone treatment to ensure its safety, that doesn’t mean it is necessarily free from the presence of calcium, magnesium and other elements. These are not harmful to health in normal quantities, but they can be a nuisance in several ways.

Why Get Rid of Calcium and Magnesium?

Those two elements can cause limescale in your home’s pipes and your water-using appliances such as the kettle (where it will be easily visible) and washing machine, dishwasher etc, where the problem can go undetected because you can’t get in there so easily to have a look. This can mean there is trouble building up there, out of sight, potentially leading to poor performance and even breakdowns.

A whole-house water filtration system purifies the water in this respect before it gets into the house.

What About Bathroom Water Problems?

This is the other side of the same coin. If limescale deposits are in your kitchen and the same eater is flowing out of the pipes through your shower unit, you will have calcium and magnesium flowing all over your body as you wash. This can cause skin and hair to feel rough and just not as smooth as it should be. It’s tiny, invisible quantities of these elements drying on your skin and causing the same sort of crust as you would find in the kettle. It might rub off with a towel, but not completely, and it’s just not what you bargained for: taking a shower or washing your hair is supposed to be the ultimate cleansing experience, and if it’s not, something needs to be done about it. That something is getting a whole-house water filtration system installed.

Are There Different Kinetico Whole House Water Filtration Systems?

There are differences in terms of basic functionality and in terms of how much purifying needs to be done, so yes, it’s not a one-size fits all deal. The end result is the same, though: beautiful, pure water flowing throughout the house, making everything from brewing a good cup of coffee to washing your hair the sort of simple, pure experience it should be.
