The Importance of Home Water Filtration and Purification

When you turn the faucet on your kitchen or bathroom sink, you’re expecting clean, safe water to flow out. But even if your water appears clear, it could still contain toxic chemicals that are hazardous to your family’s health and safety. Plenty of people dislike the taste of polluted tap water and grasp the risk of drinking it. That’s why half of all American homes have either a home water treatment system (32 percent) or bottled water (18 percent) to make sure they have safe drinking water nearby.

If you want to safeguard your family’s well-being, you may first opt for continuing the bottled water route. Sadly, this gets costly soon. In addition, plastic water bottles that aren’t recyclable end up polluting the world’s waterways, harming the environment and wiping out marine life.

Installing a whole-house water filtration system is more practical and healthier for the environment than using so much bottled water. It will also supply healthier water more easily because you can get it directly from the tap. In addition, whole-house systems send purified water to your showers, tubs and plumbing fixtures, helping you to maximize the benefits anywhereyou use water at home.

Before putting in a whole-house water filter, find out what’s in your drinking water and how a Filtermax™ Superior Chemical Removal Filter can clear out unhealthy contaminants. Then, contact Winnipeg Supply Service Experts to help you find and install the ideal water filter for you.

What’s in Your Drinking Water?

Water quality may differ by location, but several of the most prevalent contaminants include:

    • Heavy metals
    • Chlorine
    • Lead
    • Industrial chemicals
    • Disinfection byproducts (DBPs)

Learn what’s in your drinking water by entering your ZIP Code into the Environmental Working Group’s drinking water quality database. EWG files show that above 80 percent of utility water supplies in North America have tested positive for carcinogenic chemicals, demonstrating that legal water quality levels may not be necessarily safe.

Consider Installing a Filtermax Water Filtration System

The Filtermax Superior Chemical Removal Filter traps dirt, debris and dangerous chemicals from your faucets, providing you and your family with safe, healthy water to drink. Here are the advantages of this system:

    • Sediment filtration: Cloudiness is a common sign of sediment in your drinking water. Comprised of silt, sand, rust or clay, sediment is abundant and can accumulate in the water main soon after heavy rainfall. While largely harmless, sediment can make your drinking water appear and taste unpleasant. Filtermax provides sediment filtration to remove solids from your drinking water.
    • Chlorine removal: Chlorine is the key to clean drinking water in dense cities. However, this disinfectant can generate hazardous chemical byproducts when it mixes with naturally occurring organic and inorganic compounds in the water. Some DPBs, including trihalomethanes (THMs), are shown to cause cancer. Filtermax gets rid of these carcinogens to keep your family healthy.
    • Safer, cleaner, better-tasting water: Guaranteeing safe tap water is the objective of adding putting in any water filtration equipment. Besides being safer for your family to enjoy, filtered water also smells, tastes and looks better. No more lingering metallic or musty scents. No more earthy or chlorine flavor. No more muddy water swirling around your glass. Just clean-tasting, odorless, crystal-clear water.
    • Filtered water at every tap: Hazardous chemicals don’t just affect you when ingested—they also absorb into your skin during a shower and adhere to your clothing and dishes when you clean them. That’s why a whole-house filtration system is so beneficial because it guarantees clean water from every tap.
    • No operating costs or squandered water: Some whole-house filtration systems increase your electric bills. Others add to your water bills with automatic backwashing and flushing. Filtermax illustrates that clean water doesn’t have to bring higher utility costs.
    • Flow-through distributor: Based on your plumbing system’s structure, you could need an upflow or downflow water filter. The Filtermax™ flow-through distributor includes both designs to accommodate your needs.
    • 20-year manufacturer warranty: This is one of the strongest warranties in the water treatment equipment industry! With this coverage, you know your investment will continue providing clean, quality drinking water for many years to come.
