The Importance of Home Water Filtration and Purification

When you use the faucet on your kitchen or bathroom sink, you expect clean, healthy water to flow out. But even if the water looks clear, it could still contain toxic chemicals that are hazardous to your family’s health and safety. A lot of people don’t like the taste of tainted tap water and grasp the risks of drinking it. That’s why half of all American families use either a home water treatment system (32 percent) or bottled water (18 percent) to guarantee they have healthy drinking water on hand. 

If you want to protect your family’s well-being, you may first think about continuing the bottled water approach. Unfortunately, this gets costly soon. Additionally, plastic water bottles that aren’t recycled end up damaging the world’s waterways, disrupting the environment and hurting marine life. 

Installing a whole-house water filtration system is more practical and cleaner for the environment than using so much bottled water. It may also deliver healthier water much more easily because you can get it right from the tap. In addition, whole-house systems send purified water to your showers, tubs and plumbing appliances, enabling you to maximize the benefits anywhereyou use water in your home. 

Before installing a whole-house water filtration system, learn what’s in your water supply and how a Filtermax™ Superior Chemical Removal Filter can eliminate harmful contaminants. Then, get in touch with Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing to help you find and install the best water filter for you. 

What’s in Your Drinking Water? 

Water quality fluctuates by location, but some of the most common contaminants include: 

  • Heavy metals 
  • Chlorine 
  • Lead 
  • Industrial chemicals 
  • Disinfection byproducts (DBPs) 

Learn what’s in your home’s tap water by entering your ZIP Code into the Environmental Working Group’s drinking water quality database. EWG records show that over 80 percent of utility water supplies in North America have tested positive for carcinogenic chemicals, illustrating that legal water quality levels are not necessarily safe. 

Try Installing a Filtermax Water Filtration System 

The Filtermax Superior Chemical Removal Filter eliminates dirt, debris and hazardous chemicals from your tap, supplying you and your family with safe, sparkling water to enjoy. Here are the perks of this system: 

  • Sediment filtration: Cloudiness is a sure sign of debris in your drinking water. Comprised of silt, sand, rust or clay, sediment naturally occurs and can become concentrated in the water main following severe storms. While typically harmless, sediment can make your drinking water look and taste unpleasant. Filtermax provides sediment filtration to remove solids from your drinking water. 
  • Chlorine removal: Chlorine is the key to clean drinking water in dense cities. However, this disinfectant also adds dangerous chemical byproducts when it mixes with naturally occurring organic and inorganic substances in the water. Some DPBs, like trihalomethanes (THMs), are shown to cause cancer. Filtermax removes these carcinogens to protect your family. 
  • Safer, cleaner, better-tasting water: Guaranteeing safe tap water is the goal of installing any water filtration solution. Besides being safer for your family to enjoy, filtered water also smells, tastes and looks better. No more constant metallic or musty scents. No more earthy or chlorine flavor. No more muddy water swirling around your kitchen sink. Just clean-tasting, odorless, crystal-clear water. 
  • Filtered water at every tap: Harmful chemicals don’t just impact you when ingested—they also absorb into your skin during a shower and cling to your clothing and dishes as you wash them. That’s why a whole-house filtration system is so worthwhile because it ensures clean water from every tap. 
  • No operating costs or water going to waste: Some whole-house filtration systems increase your electric bills. Others raise your water bills with automatic backwashing and flushing. Filtermax proves that safe, clean water doesn’t have to include bigger utility costs. 
  • Flow-through distributor: Based on your plumbing system’s configuration, you may need an upflow or downflow water filter. The Filtermax™ flow-through distributor contains both designs to cater to your needs. 
  • 20-year manufacturer warranty: This is one of the strongest warranties in the water treatment equipment industry! With this coverage, you have certainty your investment will continue providing clean, quality drinking water for many years to come.
