Choosing A Good Home Water Filtering System

Aug 17, 2007
Home water filter systems can improve the well being of the whole family, and home water filter systems can make the water taste better too. Water is vital for every human being, and it is important that the water is clean and pure for everyone in the family. Home water filter systems are available at inexpensive prices to provide the purest, most delicious water. Doctors often tell people that they should drink eight glasses of water every day for optimum health. If the water does not taste that good, people are tempted to drink bottled water or sodas when they are thirsty.

Bottled water is expensive, and the tap water often taste awful so a home water filter system could provide the solution to all of these problems. Home water filter systems are available that can produce great water for the entire home. Every faucet that dispenses water will be clean and pure if a good home water filter system is installed. These systems can be set up so the water goes through one tank that purifies the water before it goes through to the faucets that dispense the water to the people in the home.

When comparing water filter systems you need to consider the following:

Certified Systems - Is the entire system tested and certified by an independent third party to remove or reduce the specified water contaminants?

Initial Cost - What is the cost of the installed system?

Filter Replacement Costs - What are the costs to replace the filter cartridges?

Filter Life - How often will you have to replace the filter cartridge and how many gallons will it filter before the recommended replacement?

Operating Costs - Divide the cost of the replacement filter by the recommended service life (in gallons of water filtered). This is the operating cost per gallon for filtered water.

Performance Data - Will the system remove the contaminants you are most concerned about and are there any performance tests to demonstrate the effectiveness of the filter system at removing those specific contaminants? If the system is reverse osmosis, will it produce enough water for your family?

Water Monitor - Does the system monitor the amount of water processed or the quality of the water so you only replace filter cartridges when necessary for cost effective and safe operation?

Component Quality - There are many ways to configure water treatment systems with the various necessary components such as filter cartridges, faucets, connectors, valves and housings. These components will determine the dependability, performance and lasting water quality of the water treatment system.

Note: Do not use these water filter systems with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the unit. Contaminants, or other substances removed or reduced by these water treatment devices are not necessarily in your water. Systems certified for cyst reduction may be used on disinfected waters that may contain filterable cysts.

Home Water Filter Systems Use Excellent Technology

A home water filter system will also provide softer water for the people in the home. This means that the clothes will be cleaner when they come out of the washing machine. The machines work better with less detergent for the best results. These systems will make a difference in the condition of every one's hair and skin. The people in the home will quickly notice the important differences soon after a home water filter system is installed. These home systems can be set up with ease to provide perfect water for the entire home.

Once a home water filter system is installed, there will be other benefits that the people in the home will notice. The dishes coming out of a dishwasher will be cleaner and brighter. The coffee made with the tap water will taste better than ever before. These systems also remove the elements in the water that deposit ugly stains on the toilets, baths, showers and fixtures. The technology in the systems can provide water that has the important elements while removing harmful elements. The home water filter system can be set up to deliver pure, soft water to supply all of the people in the home on a regular basis.
