First of all, let me begin by congratulating you for making a smart decision. Whole house water filter systems are one of the simplest and best ways of keeping your family safe from a whole lot of diseases, and one which many people just do not give a thought to.
That said, it can be a problem to choose the right system. There are so many out there, but very few of them can actually do what they say.
For example, you would be aware of the dangers that chlorine – a very common contaminant in your drinking water supply – can cause. This chemical has been linked to cancer, heart diseases and many serious illnesses in various studies. It’s actually used for killing the microbes present in water, so it should be no surprise that it has a similar effect on the cells inside your body.
Here’s the shocker – many common whole house water filter systems cannot even remove this major contaminant from your water supply!
Did you know that RO purifiers use a semi permeable membrane inside, which allows water molecules to pass through and blocks the contaminants of a bigger size? Chlorine and its byproducts have a small molecular size, which means they easily pass through the membrane and are present in the filtered water too!
On top of this, essential minerals like magnesium and calcium are stripped out of the water because of their big size. Drinking such de-mineralized water for long can cause problems like heart diseases and stroke in the long run.
What Does Work Then?
The fact is – in today’s heavily polluted world, a single purification mechanism is just not going to cut it. You need a combination of cutting edge techniques like Ion Exchange for removing heavy metals and restoring the pH balance of water, Sub Micron Filtering for removing all sorts of chemicals including chlorine, and the tried and tested Carbon filter for removing dirt and bigger contaminants.
A combination of these techniques is what you can find in the best whole house water filter systems, which can remove all the types of contaminants you can find in your home water supply.
A Quality Purifier
Aquasana’s EQ-300 is one good choice here. It employs a unique three step filtering process consisting of the latest, effective filtering techniques. It doesn’t require electricity to run and doesn’t waste copious amounts of water like RO systems do.
It’s effective, easy to use and provides value for money. Go take a look for yourself now.
