In most homes, a water filtration system is necessary for the delivery of pure, uncontaminated water to its residents. However, many filters that can be purchased at shopping centers hardly improve the quality of a home’s water supply. If you would like to ensure that the water in your home is free of chlorine, mineral sediment, and other contaminants, you should have an iron-free filter or reverse osmosis system professionally installed in your home instead of purchasing a substandard carbon filter at your local super market. Read this article to find out why.
The most compelling reason to scrap your low-end carbon filtration system for a high-performing carbon filter unit or reverse osmosis system is that the low-end filters do not remove microorganic pathogens from your drinking water supply. What this means, essentially, is that the low-end filter you purchased at the store is not performing the function you expect of it.
Low-end water filters typically have a storage capacity of less than one gallon. When you have company and you want to serve filtered water to all of your guests, you can choose between the nuisance of buying extra filters for the occasion and repeatedly filling your low-end water filter and transferring the “filtered” water to multiple storage containers. With a high-end water filter, you can simply fill a couple of serving pitchers from the tap and set them on the table. You will have peace of mind knowing that the water you and your guests drink will be pure.
In addition to having a low storage capacity, low-end water filtration systems require a filter change every 30 to 40 gallons. High-end water filtration systems can effectively filter lead, chlorine, mineral sediment, and other undesirable elements from five hundred gallons of tap water. For many households, this means one filter change a year.
