How to Choose Water Filtration Systems for Your Home

Home Water Filters

It’s common these days for families to have some kind of water filtration system in their home, whether it is a pitcher that’s kept in the fridge or on the counter or something installed directly on the kitchen faucet. But what if you would prefer a water filtration system that will work for your whole home, and how do you choose the right one? Water filtration systems come in all shapes and sizes, so here is a quick list of things to consider before making your next purchase:

  • What’s in Your Water? – Did you know that not all water filtration systems are alike? Some of those things they filter may not even BE in your water – or you may have items that need to be filtered, and the filtration system you choose doesn’t strain for those things. Doing your research to determine which nutrients, vitamins and chemicals are actually in your water will help you choose the right system.
  • Type & Location – The next step is to determine the filter you need and the best location. You will most likely need to replace the filters on any water filtration systems, and it is important to note which ones in particular fit yours. Also, having the right location set up will ensure that your whole home is protected efficiently and you get long-term results.
  • NSF Certified – Another important step is making sure the water filtration system you choose is NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) certified. You can look for the seal on the system of your choice and investigate which water filtration systems will best meet your needs.
