Tips for Choosing the Best Home Water Filtration System

by Beth Belloise 11/08/2019

The purity of the water in your house depends mostly on your home water purification system. Therefore, it is essential you know how to choose the best water filter for your household. Water filtration is a purifying process that ensures that the water in your home has an excellent taste and is purified.

The kind of filter that connects with the main supply to provide the home with already treated water is the whole house filter.  The point-of-entry filter enables your laundry, showers, toilets, kitchen, and bathtub dispense filtered water. Below are some pointers that will guide you towards selecting the best home water filtration system.

Decide on the water filtration system you want for your house. 

The level of contamination in your water will determine the filter to install in your home.  If you don't completely understand how to do this, you should seek the help of professionals in this area. They will identify the contaminant and recommend the filter you need.  You may need to remove sediments like minerals, chlorine, and other chemicals if a municipal service runs your main supply.  

If the source of your water supply is a private water well, the contaminants that you are likely to encounter are iron, hardness minerals, and sediments.  

Know the flow rate of your dispenser and appliances. 

A flow rate is the amount of water running through your water dispenser at a particular time. The unit of measure of flow rate is in gallons/minute. It is essential that you know the demand specification of your filter and appliances before buying them. For instance, the specification of a toilet and dishwater are 3gpm and 5gpm, respectively.  

When the flow rate of a whole house filter system is lower than the required speed, there will be lower water pressure and interrupted water flow. 

Note the size of the filter you want.

You are advised to go for a more extensive service filter because of its longer service interval. Apart from that, it provides with enough water supply.  Also, you should not hesitate to consider the port size of the filter because it influences the flow rate and the pressure of water that enters your home. 

Make an inquiry about the life of your whole house water filter system. 

The life of your home water filter system will depend on the condition of water you intend to filter.  Therefore, you should note the quantity and quality of contaminant when planning to buy a filter. 

Are you planning to buy a home water filtration system or replace the existing one, the tips above will guide you towards making the right choice.
