The Importance of Home Water Filtration and Purification

When you run the faucet on your kitchen or bathroom sink, you anticipate clean, healthy water to flow out. But even if your water appears clear, it may still contain toxic chemicals that are hazardous to your family’s health and well-being. Many people dislike the taste of tainted tap water and grasp the risks of drinking it. That’s why half of all American families keep either a home water treatment system (32 percent) or bottled water (18 percent) to ensure they have safe drinking water on hand. 

If you want to safeguard your family’s health, you might first opt for continuing the bottled water plan. Sadly, this gets expensive fast. Additionally, plastic water bottles that don’t get recycled end up damaging the world’s waterways, disrupting the environment and wiping out marine life. 

Installing a whole-house water filtration system is more cost-efficient and better for the environment than using so much bottled water. It can also deliver healthier water more conveniently because you can get it directly from the tap. What’s more, whole-house systems provide purified water to your showers, tubs and plumbing fixtures, allowing you to make the most of the benefits whereveryou use water at home. 

Before installing a whole-house water filter, find out what’s in your drinking water and how a Filtermax™ Superior Chemical Removal Filter can eliminate harmful contaminants. Then, contact Stevenson Service Experts to help you find and install the best water filter for you. 

What’s in Your Drinking Water? 

Water quality fluctuates by location, but a few of the most common contaminants include: 

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

Learn what’s in your water supply by entering your ZIP Code into the Environmental Working Group’s drinking water quality database. EWG records show that greater than 80 percent of utility water supplies in North America at one point tested positive for carcinogenic chemicals, illustrating that legal water quality levels may not be necessarily safe. 

Think About Installing a Filtermax Water Filtration System 

The Filtermax Superior Chemical Removal Filter eliminates dirt, debris and hazardous chemicals from your tap water, providing you and your family with safe, sparkling water to drink. Here are the perks of this system: 

  • Sediment filtration: Cloudiness is a sure sign of contaminants in your drinking water. Comprised of silt, sand, rust or clay, sediment naturally occurs and increases in the water main after heavy rains. While typically harmless, sediment can make your drinking water look and taste unpleasant. Filtermax provides sediment filtration to clear out solids from your drinking water. 
  • Chlorine removal: Chlorine is crucial to clean drinking water in urban environments like cities. However, this disinfectant also adds dangerous chemical byproducts when it mixes with naturally occurring organic and inorganic compounds in the water. A few DPBs, including trihalomethanes (THMs), are shown to cause cancer. Filtermax removes these carcinogens to keep your family healthy. 
  • Safer, cleaner, better-tasting water: Ensuring safe tap water is the goal of adding putting in any water filtration solution. Besides being healthier 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 murky water swirling around your cup. Just clean-tasting, odorless, crystal-clear water. 
  • Filtered water for every tap: Toxic chemicals don’t just impact you when ingested—they also absorb into your skin when you 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 provides clean water from every tap. 
  • No operating expenses or squandered water: Some whole-house filtration systems add to your electric bills. Others raise your water bills with automatic backwashing and flushing. Filtermax proves that healthy water doesn’t have to include steeper utility costs. 
  • Flow-through distributor: Based on your plumbing system’s configuration, you could need an upflow or downflow water filter. The Filtermax™ flow-through distributor includes both designs to satisfy your needs. 
  • 20-year manufacturer warranty: This is the best warranty in the water treatment equipment industry! With this coverage, you have certainty your investment will continue providing clean, quality drinking water for many years to come.
