Water filters remove more dangerous contaminants than any other purification method, and they are uniquely designed to work with municipally treated water. Water filtration is able to remove cryptosporidium from drinking water, a feat that neither municipal water treatment plants nor bottled water companies have yet managed. Also, drinking filtered water is a much more economical practice than drinking bottled water. Pure, filtered water costs little more than untreated tap water. Furthermore, water filters use no more energy than is already required to propel water through a home’s plumbing system and without the waste of empty bottles.
Installation of a whole-house water filter provides many benefits. There are over 2,100 known water contaminants. These can enter our bodies through drinking, inhalation and dermal absorption. Filtering water before it enters your home prevents the escape of harmful chemicals such as chlorine from the dishwasher, toilet and shower. Eliminating these chemicals can reduce the likelihood of asthma and bronchitis.
