United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets legal limits on over ninety contaminants in drinking water. The limits reflect the levels that protect human health and guarantee the safety of water for drinking. However, drinking water may contain other contaminants, that affect the smell, color, and taste of your water. Water filtration system can optimize water PH balance, remove chlorine and chloramines, eliminate asbestos, herbicides, pesticides, etc. Using whole house filtration system reduces your exposure to synthetic chemicals and chlorine, for more moisturized, noticeably healthier, hair and skin.
If the water contains a significant amount of dissolved magnesium and calcium and a high concentration of Mg2+ and Ca2+ cations (hard water), they can clump together to produce scale, which can harm your plumbing, home appliances, and internal pipes. Hard water is not considered contaminated and usually is not a health issue. In the USA most water sources are considered hard (see below).
Combined with a softener, home water filtration systems safely and naturally reduce scale buildup on plumbing and internal pipes without the use of chemicals and harsh salt. Softeners or anti-scale filters or are also required on the inlet side of the tankless water heaters to keep the warranty. Softeners lower water hardness but sometimes have an additional filter to treat contamination.
