is water filtering right for you

Are you concerned about the safety of your water? Do you wish your water tasted better? If the answer to either question is "yes," you may want to consider a water filtration system for your home. Here are a few benefits and options for water filtration.

Benefits of Water Filtration Systems

Water filtration systems are highly beneficial to many people for a number of reasons.

Removes Harmful Contaminants

The EPA estimates that  90 percent of the water supply in the US is safe to drink without filtration. That being said, there's always a chance harmful contaminants can get in your water supply. Some of the particles that filtration systems can remove from your water include:

Provides Better-Tasting Water

Unfiltered water often has a grimy taste because of the abundance of minerals and other chemicals used in the purification process. If you're craving a clean and refreshing glass of water, filtration can definitely help. A filtering system can remove chlorine, which is commonly used by water utility companies. It can also take care of a metallic taste by  removing iron or manganese.

Can Reduce Risk of Disease

Many types of contaminants can even cause disease in humans. For example, giardiasis is a parasitic infection that causes diarrhea for up to several weeks. Another dangerous disease is cryptosporidiosis, which also causes stomach cramping and diarrhea. Parasites aren't the only thing that cause health problems. Having too much lead in your water can be toxic over time.

Types of Filtration Systems

You've decided to invest in a filtration system. But which type is right for you? The main types of filtration systems are point-of-entry water filters and point-of-use water filters.
