What Are the Types of Water Filtration Systems?
There are different types of advanced home water filtration systems available. Here are the top there.
This is one of the most common and least expensive. The system is installed under the sink. You simply replace the filter cartridges as often as needed, depending on your water usage. Activated carbon systems are effective in removing parasites, chemicals, and heavy metals in your water.
These are also called ion exchange filters or water softeners. Positively charged ions attract negatively charged ions that are harmful, like barium and calcium, which can cause health issues and damage pipes, making the water taste bad.
This filtration system is considered to be the most effective. It forces the water to pass through a membrane using air pressure to remove contaminants. The output for this system is between 50 to 90 gallons per day.
Benefits of Water Filtration Systems
Safe Drinking Water
When your water is filtered, it ensures that you have healthy and safe drinking water without the need for bottled water. You can get delicious water any time of day.
Protecting the Environment
With so many plastic bottles used each year and only a fraction of them get recycled, the rest end up in landfills. However, with a filtration system, you are not adding even more garbage to these landfills.
Minimize Minor Skin Conditions
Heavy metals, fluoride, and chlorine in unfiltered water can aggravate skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema. By using a water filtration system, you will actually be able to help diminish these issues.
If you currently buy bottled water, you will save tons of money by switching to a water filtration system. You can save hundreds of dollars each year. A new filter is required annually, but they are more affordable than buying a new pack of bottled water each week.
Reduce Plumbing Repair
You can reduce your plumbing repairs when you use filtered water. Heavy metals, minerals, and chemicals in unfiltered water can damage your plumbing. However, filtered water provides zero of these deposits running through your plumbing system.
With filtered water, you are always prepared if a sewer line near your house bursts. Those can cause water contamination, but you will be protected with an advanced filtration system.
This may seem like a minor benefit, but it’s so unique we had to add it. An advanced home water filtration system acts as a water softener. This will help you use less soap for yourself, dishes, and clothes because hard water’s minerals no longer prevent the ionic action of soap.
Many people’s favorite advantage of a water filtration system is that the taste of water is improved. Water filters remove elements that may impact the overall taste and smell of water, such as lead, chlorine, and bacteria. It also lowers the pH level of the water that you’re drinking.
