We like to think that the water in our homes is free of bacteria, toxins and other minerals. While that’s true for the most part (thanks to our American infrastructure system), our water isn’t always healthy. That’s why we sometimes have boil-water advisories.
The solution to ensure you always have clean water is a whole house purification system. This post will cover everything you need to know about residential water purification.
How do whole house purification systems work?
There are many different types of whole house purifiers on the market that utilize various methods to purify water. Some use filters to catch contaminants, while others utilize UV rays to kill bacteria. The similarity between them all is that the units attach to your main water source to purify the water before it flows throughout your home’s plumbing system.
At WES Water, we install state-of-the-art systems that utilize the reduction-oxidation (redox) process to eliminate metals, oxidizing agents, organics, biologicals and other contaminants. Our technology does not require filters, so there’s no hassle and very little maintenance required.
Whole house systems vs point-of-use filters
While doing research about residential water purification, you may come across the term point-of-use filters. These purification systems attach to a single fixture (like the kitchen sink) and only filter water that comes from that tap. Whole house filters, on the other hand, purify every drop of water in your home.
A point-of-use filter might be fine for customers who only want clean water to cook or drink, but if you want pure water for brushing your teeth, bathing and doing laundry, a whole house filter is what you need.
Benefits of whole house purification
You’ll notice the benefits of residential water purification as soon as you have your system installed. Here are just a few of the things to look forward to:
- Clean water everywhere: Whether you’re in the bathroom taking a shower or grabbing a glass of water from your kitchen faucet, your water will be crystal clear. Our purifiers even ensure the water in your ice maker is free and clear of any harmful contaminants.
- Longer appliance lifespan: You might not be able to taste the minerals in your tap water, but they do shorten your appliances’ lifespans over time. To ensure you get the most out of your dishwasher, washing machine and water heater, install a whole house purifier to eliminate contaminants.
- Softer skin and hair: Calcium and magnesium found in hard water can leave your skin feeling filmy or your hair not feeling entirely clean after a shower. With purified water, you’ll feel cleaner after hopping out of the shower.
- Reduced mineral and scale buildup: Hard water also leaves behind traces of minerals on your sinks, tubs or even dishes after they come out of the dishwasher. The only solution is to install a purifier that eliminates them before they enter your home’s plumbing system.
