Benefits of a Whole House Water Filtration System
If you’ve never thought about getting a whole house water filtration system, here are a few reasons to consider.
- Safer Drinking Water - If you’ve noticed the scale buildup on your faucets, think about that gunk getting into your body. A water filter will take care of this problem.
- Better For Your Fixtures - Hard water builds up calcium which clogs your showerheads and faucets. A filter reduces build up and extends the life of your fixtures.
- Smoother Skin - Another problem with hard water is it makes your skin dry, itchy and red. You will enjoy smoother, clearer skin with better water.
- Soft Clothes - Contaminated water leaves your clothes stiff and scratch when they come out of the washer. Filtered water makes your clothes feel softer, and last longer.
How Does a Reverse Osmosis Filter Work?
One of the best filters you can get for your home is a reverse osmosis filter because it produces great tasting, clean, healthy water by removing all the impurities. Reverse osmosis is a simple process; water passes through a semipermeable membrane, which takes out impurities. Any impurities that pass through the membrane get filtered out via additional filters leaving you with clear, fresh, great tasting water.

Maintaining a Reverse Osmosis Filter
One of the best things about having a whole house water filtration system, other than the great tasting and clean water you get, is that it’s easy to maintain. Most experts recommend changing your filter every 6-12 months depending on the quality of the water coming into the system. If the water is severely contaminated, change the filter more often.
