A filtration system used for treating water for the entire home to ensure filtered and clean water from every faucet or showerhead is termed as a whole house water filter. The filter in this system is set up at the main point from where the water line enters your home and is known as POE (Point Of Entry) filters. POE filters are nothing but the getaways of tap water that allows the flow of filtered and fresh water to your home’s appliances and faucets.

Role of Whole House Water Filtration System

The whole house water filtration system removes all the contamination from water and supplies freshwater that anyone would want in their homes. The other factors that this system works on are as follows:

  • Reduces water hardness
  • Eliminates the smell of chlorine used during the water treatment process
  • Removes sediments

Types of Whole House Water Filters

There are broadly five types of water filters available in the market. The filters available are as follows:

Water Softeners

The most common water issue faced by most people is the water supply that they get is hard water. Hard water has a high concentration of dissolved minerals like magnesium and calcium, which are not at all good while cooking or for utensils used in the kitchen. Not just that, it clogs the water pipes which leads to a decrease in water pressure and also shortens the lifespan of appliances installed. This is why having a soft water filter installed will not only ease your life but will save you a lot of money.

Ultraviolet Purification Systems

Ultraviolet Purification filters are beneficial in killing living organisms present in water like bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses.

Sediment Filters

Sediment filters are used in cases when supply water contains contaminations like dirt, clay, sand, and rust flecks that are caused due to old pipelines.

Carbon Filters

Carbon filters are very useful in removing chlorine from water that is used to kill bacteria during the process of making water consumable by people. It also removes the chemical taste & smell that chlorine holds.

Acid Neutralizers

If the water that you get is acidic in nature, then Acid neutralizers come to the rescue.

The filter that you’ll be needing in your home largely depends on the quality of the water supply that you get.
