The Best Water Filters For Your Home's Water System

When it comes to water filtration, the most affordable option is often to have a filter installed in your home's water system. This water filter guide will cover the basic types of filters you can install in your home so you can decide which is best for you.

Reverse Osmosis Filters

Reverse Osmosis filtration removes contaminants from water through the use of a filtering membrane. These filters are often used in conjunction with Granule Activated Charcoal Filters to pull chlorine from the water. The benefit of a Reverse Osmosis filter is its powerful filtering capabilities. Few filter systems offer the same reduction of heavy metals and other contaminants, such as chloride. The downside of using this type of filter is that it leads to a significant amount of water waste and does nothing to reduce VOC levels.

Distilled Water Systems

Water distillation is a simple process that uses heat to turn water into steam. When the steam moves into a coiling chamber for purification, it turns back into water with most contaminants removed. Distilled water systems remove many contaminants, including fluorides and heavy metals, but they do not reduce VOCs.

Under Counter Filters

Multi-stage filters that mount underneath your counter are a relatively recent yet effective addition to the home filter market. These filters use a 14-stage process to filter out contaminants while putting minerals back in the water. Under Counter Filters remove more contaminants than any other filter, but they can only be installed underneath a sink.

Installing a water filtration can help you stay healthy by reducing the amount of contaminants you drink. Each filtration system option offers its own unique benefits and drawbacks, so the final decision depends on your unique needs.
