How to Choose the Best Home Water Filtration System

In today’s Metro-Flow Plumbing blog entry we’ll be talking about the best home water filtration systems for your home. There are various to choose from and we’d like to cover all the bases so let’s get started!

Water is an essential resource, and ensuring that the water we drink is clean and safe is crucial for our health and well being. Unfortunately, tap water is not always as clean as we might like, and there can be contaminants and impurities in it that can be harmful to our health. This is where home water filtration systems come in.

There are many different types of home water filtration systems available on the market, each with its own pros and cons. In this blog entry, we will discuss the best home water filtration systems available and what makes them stand out.

Reverse Osmosis Systems

Reverse Osmosis systems are highly effective at removing impurities from water, including chemicals, minerals, and other contaminants. The system uses a semi-permeable membrane that traps impurities while allowing pure water to pass through. Reverse osmosis systems are typically installed under the sink and require professional installation.

One of the best things about Reverse Osmosis systems is that they can remove up to 99% of impurities from water, including lead, fluoride, and arsenic. However, they do require maintenance, including regular filter changes and cleaning.

Have you heard of our Plumber Mate™ Water System? The beauty of the Plumber Mate™ Water System is its simplicity and water filtration system. First, water flows downward, through the Catalytic activated carbon to remove chlorine taste and odors, along with potentially harmful chemicals. Next, water hardness is removed by the softener resin so you enjoy the many benefits of soft water. Finally, the reverse osmosis membrane removes impurities like lead, fluoride, and arsenic. All this is housed in a sleek design that fits right under your sink! Maintenance couldn’t be easier; just replace the filter every 6 months and you’re all set!

Whether you have a home or business, our Plumber Mate™ Water System is a great solution for all your water needs. Contact us today to get started and enjoy the many benefits of clean, soft water with our Plumber Mate™ Water System!

Activated Carbon Filters

Activated carbon filters are a popular choice for home water filtration systems due to their affordability and effectiveness. The filters work by using activated carbon to remove impurities from water, including chlorine, sediment, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Activated carbon filters are easy to install and maintain, and they do not require professional installation. However, they are not as effective at removing all types of impurities as Reverse Osmosis systems.

Ultraviolet (UV) Water Purifiers

UV water purifiers are an effective way to kill bacteria and viruses in water. The system works by using ultraviolet light to destroy the DNA of microorganisms, rendering them harmless. UV water purifiers are typically installed at the point of entry, where the water enters the house.

One of the best things about UV water purifiers is that they are highly effective at killing bacteria and viruses, including E. coli and Cryptosporidium. However, they are not effective at removing impurities such as chemicals and minerals. Additionally, the UV bulb will need to be replaced every one to two years, depending on usage.

Distillation Systems

Distillation systems are highly effective at removing impurities from water, including minerals, chemicals, and microorganisms. The system works by heating the water to boiling point and then collecting the condensed vapor, leaving behind impurities. However, they can be expensive and require a lot of energy to operate. They also require maintenance, including regular cleaning. 

The water filtration systems available today vary widely in price, complexity, and effectiveness. When choosing a water filtration system for your home, it is important to consider the water quality of your source water and the types of contaminants you wish to remove. Different water filtration systems are designed to target different types of contaminants and may require regular maintenance. The best water filtration system for you not only depends on your budget but also on the type of water you have at home.

In conclusion, there are many different types of home water filtration systems available, each with its own pros and cons. When choosing a system, it is important to consider your specific needs and requirements, as well as your budget. Regardless of the type of system you choose, investing in a home water filtration system is an important step towards ensuring that the water you drink is clean and safe. Filtered water can also benefit your hair and skin.
