When it comes to choosing a water filtration system, there are a lot of factors that need to be considered to ensure you get the right equipment for the job. Not every filtration system is the same, so you need to choose one based on what your needs are. For drinking water in the home, you need to choose a water filter system that will ensure your water is as safe to drink as possible. 

Reverse osmosis system

The reverse osmosis water filtering system works by using high pressure and a membrane. The water is forced through the membrane using a pump, where any contaminants are removed from the water and clean, pure water comes out on the other side. There are many pros to using a reverse osmosis system and it is certainly one of the most popular choices since it removes 99.9% of contaminants. However it must be noted that the system requires high pressure to work and can end up wasting a lot of water in the process.

Carbon filters

Carbon filters have been used for hundreds of years since they are really effective in removing harmful organic compounds, radon and lead from your drinking water. They can also remove harmless compounds that affect the odor and taste of your water.

Why get a filtration system?

The truth is that even if your water is deemed safe to drink by your local municipality, there are many things that can get through and end up in your cup. Water systems usually allow for “safe” levels of certain contaminants, which means that even if it’s safe on paper, you are still ingesting bacteria, viruses, metals, chemicals and other harmful substances. Getting a water filtration system at home is a must for ensuring your water is always clean and pure. Choosing a water filtration system depends on your family’s needs, your budget, the size of your property and other factors.
