Under-Sink Drinking Water Filter
These water purification systems are installed underneath the sink, providing you with high quality water. These systems do not require much in the way of maintenance, but are definitely pricier than a basic slip-on faucet filter. This option is perfect for anyone using town water.
Point of Entry Water Purification System
Could unfiltered water on your property affect your health? If so, a more heavy-duty filter would be required. A point of entry water purification system looks to remove contaminants, as well as improve the taste and appearance of the water.
Types of Filters
Carbon FiltersThese are the filters used in faucet filters attached to your sink. They can also be found in filtering pitchers. It works by removing organic compounds whenever it is in contact with water. While this filter is very affordable, the cartridge will periodically have to be replaced.
Reverse Osmosis Using ultra-violet light or membrane filters to remove harmful minerals from your drinking water, these expensive systems can provide extremely effective water filtration and water conditioning.
Water Softening If high levels of calcium or magnesium affect your water you may need a water softener. If not treated it can cause scaling in water, taste or smell bad and ruin appliances. During the ‘filtering’ process, calcium is turned into sodium, making it less damaging to your appliances.
