When you’re shopping for a water filtration system, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind. First, consider the type of water you want to filter. A simple carbon filter will do the job if you’re only interested in filtering out chlorine and other chemicals. A water filtration system in Pelham, ON, is an excellent choice to remove minerals and other impurities from your water. Wellbrook Plumbing shares a few other features to look for when shopping for a water filtration system.
Point of Use / Point of Entry
You first need to decide whether you want a point-of-use (POU) or point-of-entry (POE) system. POU systems filter water, such as under the kitchen sink. On the other hand, POE systems are installed at the main water line coming into your home and treat all the water in your house. It is recommended for water conditioning systems to be POE systems.
Dedicated Filtered Water Faucet
It’s essential to ensure that the water softener system you choose comes with a dedicated filtered water faucet. This is the faucet that dispenses filtered water and should be installed near your regular kitchen faucet. Many systems come with a separate under-sink unit and a separate tap. Others, like countertop systems, are designed to filter water as it’s dispensed from your regular kitchen faucet. Our plumbers often recommend dedicated filtered water faucets because they’re easier to use and less likely to introduce contaminants into the filtered water.
Types of Filters and Filter-less Systems
Considering the filter type is essential when trying to find the best water treatment services for your home. There are a few different types of filters, each with pros and cons. Carbon filters are the most common type of filter. They effectively remove chlorine, chemicals, and other contaminants from your water. Reverse osmosis filters are another popular type of filter. These filters remove many contaminants, including lead, bacteria, and viruses. However, they can be expensive to maintain and waste a lot of water.
