Six Reasons to Get a Whole House Water Filter System 

Clean Water From a Faucet A whole house water filter is just what the name implies. It is an installed filtration system that filters all the water that enters your house. This type of filter is commonly referred to as a Point Of Entry (POE) system because filters both cold and warm water before it reaches your water heater. Whole house water filter systems are not mandatory, yet they can be very beneficial for those who want cleaner, purer water in their home.

While city water treatment facilities have come a long way in terms of efficiency and effectiveness, there are still homeowners that demand safer, chemical-free water. Here are some top reasons to consider a whole house water filter system for your home:

#1 Chemicals. If you rely on city water, your water is likely loaded with chemicals that were used to kill harmful viruses and bacteria. These chemicals may not only affect the way your water tastes, but they can also be unhealthy for your body.

#2 Healthier Skin and Hair. Water is used for a lot more than drinking in your home. The toxins and chemicals in your water can affect your skin and hair too. In fact, the toxins and chlorine in water can be absorbed up to nine times faster through the skin compared to drinking. Think about this as you shower, wash your hands, etc!

#3Rust and Sediment. It is not uncommon for treated water to still contain trace amounts of rust or sediment. A whole house water filter removes these unwanted substances from your water.

#4 Better, Longer-Lasting Filtration. A whole house water filter is more effective than a basic drinking water filter, as it works in multiple stages and can remove up to thirty harmful contaminants from your water. Whole house filter systems also last much longer than basic drinking filters.

#5 Cleaner Dishes, Brighter Clothes. When chlorine is completely removed from your water, you can avoid extra soap scum and residue on your dishes. In addition, your clothes won’t become embedded with toxins when you launder them, which means they can retain their vibrancy much longer.

#6 Reduction in Allergies. Cleaner water means cleaner air. If you have family members that suffer from allergies and asthma, a whole house water filter may help them breathe easier while at home.

If you think your house could benefit from a whole house water filter or you are concerned about the way your water smells or tastes, please call our experts. We offer a wide variety of water filter systems to meet all budgets and needs. Schedule your water filter installation today.

Great job - again. Second time using Plumbing. Matt and Fernando came on time, did great work, and the pricing was very fair. They were funny, professional, prompt and thorough. Would highly recommend these guys for any plumbing needs.

Stephanie Malhotra

These guys are great. Very responsive and cost is reasonable. Plumbers and electricians always make me nervous - you never know what you are going to get! But I'm so happy we've finally found a plumber we trust!

Andrew Hodges

These guys are awesome. Scheduled an appointment to have a plumbing situation inspected for a house being bought. They were on time, communicate well and gave great guidance! Do recommend!

Michael Plumbing and his crew are the real deal. They quote quickly and accurately, and in return for your money spent with them, you get a pro job. The added bonus is that they are skilled and dedicated plumbers, not just a bunch of fellas that happen to be doing plumbing work to make $$ this week. We've used plumbing for multiple plumbing jobs at an office park, and also for residential issues.

Scott Rawlins

I had a pipe burst in my home with water spewing everywhere. Plumbing came out right away and took care of the problem quickly. Probably saved me tons of money in home improvement repairs. Service was great, price was awesome. Would recommend them to anyone. Thanks for your help.

We have used Plumbing several times and we have always been very satisfied with their service. We had a Rheem 50 gallon gas water heater installed several months ago and most recently a new toilet in our guest bath. Each time they arrive as scheduled, are very courteous and everything is done very professionally and in a timely fashion.
