What Does a Whole House Water Filtration System Remove?

A whole house water filtration system offers many health benefits for you and your family. But what exactly do these systems remove from your water? Carter Quality Plumbing takes a closer look at the substances that could be found in untreated water.

  • Harsh chemicals – If your home uses municipal water, it probably contains harsh chemicals like chlorine. While chlorine is effective at cleaning water, it can produce side effects like dry skin and a poor taste. A whole house water filtration system will remove the chemicals so you’ll have fresher water.
  • Microbial contaminants – Despite the downsides, chlorine does serve an important purpose. It kills microbial contaminants that could make you sick. However, sometimes these substances linger behind. A water filter will remove them. If you aren’t on city water, a whole house well water filter will remove microbial contaminants, giving you water that’s safer to drink.
  • Water pollutants – Water can be susceptible to bacteria like salmonella, E. coli, coliform, and giardia. Whole house water filtration systems remove these toxic substances from water, reducing your risk of illness.
