If you’re concerned about having clean and safe drinking water, you might begin by trying an inexpensive faucet filter.
Using a water filter improves the quality and taste of your water by eliminating odors and impurities. Dust, dirt, bacteria, and sediment, along with many other impurities, are common in tap water. Chemicals are put into our water supply to counteract many impurities, but they may be harmful as well over time. Filters remove bacteria such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia lamblia to prevent illness. Inorganic chemicals such as arsenic, lead, mercury, nitrates, and others, are also filtered out.
If you’re concerned about having clean and safe drinking water, you might begin by trying an inexpensive faucet filter. Or, if your local water is especially corrosive to your pipes and bathroom fixtures, and leaves stains or sediment in your laundry, you might want to go all out for a whole-house water filtering system.
Water filters and filtering systems are available in many different shapes, sizes, and types. They can be placed in any location in your home where you use running water. The water filtering system you choose should fit in well with your home and reflect your lifestyle. Your choice should be based on your price range, goals, and type of living space.
