What are Water Filtration Systems?

A water filtration system is a system that filters the water that flows through your home to remove any contaminants and chemicals that are present in the unfiltered tap water that comes out of the faucets in your home. There are multiple types of water filtration systems, each of which works a little differently.

One type of water filtration system—known as point-of-use water filtration systems—is installed in a single room of your house—usually in a kitchen or bathroom—and use reverse osmosis to quickly filter large volumes of water that flow through that specific room. These water filtration systems only filter a portion of the water that flows through your home.

Another type of water filtration system—called point-of-entry water filtration systems—is installed where all of the water that flows through your home plumbing enters your house—usually in the basement—and filters the water there before it reaches its final destination in one of the rooms of your home. These water filtration systems filter all of the water that flows through your home. They are commonly installed in homes in areas where there is a high level of contaminants and pollution in the unfiltered tap water.

Although there are different types of water filtration systems, they are all designed to filter contaminants out of the water that flows through your home in order to make it safer and healthier for you and your family to drink, shower in, brush your teeth with, etc.

What are the Benefits of a Water Filtration System in Your Home?

The purpose of a water filtration system is to give you access to filtered water throughout your home. Filtered water is water that has been stripped of contaminants, chemicals, metals, and any other harmful materials.

The most obvious and notable benefit of having a water filtration system installed in your home is that your tap water will be safe to drink and it will taste better. However, water filtration systems have many other lesser-known benefits as well.

If you wash your clothes in filtered water, they will remain softer for longer and their colors will stay more vibrant. Washing your hair in filtered water prevents build-up of pollution in your hair and can make your hair appear softer and shinier. Washing your face in filtered water can help prevent breakouts and blemishes. Overall, having filtered water flowing through your home is healthier, safer, and generally better for you and your family.
