Selecting a Water Treatment System For Your Home

Posted on: April 15, 2016

The first step in selecting a water treatment system for your home is to understand what’s in the water by having your home’s water tested. You may be experiencing high mineral content, strange odors or have other concerns. A water test will diagnose the cause of the problem and help you select the right water treatment solution for your needs.

Because not all water filters are going to be effective for the same group of contaminants, once you have identified the specific contaminants in your water check the NSF’s water filter certification page. The NSF certifies different water treatment systems by the types of contaminants they remove from the water.

There are two basic types of home water filtration systems. Whole house/point-of-entry (POE) systems typically treat all or most of the water entering a residence. They are usually installed after the water meter (municipal) or pressurized storage tank (well water). A water softener is an example of a POE system.

Point-of-use (POU) systems typically treat water at the point of consumption, such as at the kitchen sink, refrigerator or shower head. Some may install inline while others will dispense filtered water through a separate faucet.

Need help choosing a water filtration system? Call ABC Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric. We can test your home’s water and help you choose the right water filtration system for your needs.
