The 411 on Whole House Water Filtration Systems

We all need water to live. Why not guarantee the cleanest water possible for you and your family with a whole house filtration system?

What is a Whole House Water Filtration System?

A whole house water filtration system, also called a Point-Of-Entry (POE) system, attaches to the main water supply to your house. Quite simply, a POE system is the only practical way to ensure all the water in your house, both for drinking and non-drinking applications, is the cleanest it can be. Whether you are cooking, washing your dishes or bathing your child, you know that the water you are using is safe from dangerous additives and contaminants.

Who Can Benefit From This Technology?

Everyone can enjoy the advantages of cleaner water. Today’s municipal-sourced tap water is full of additives and other potentially harmful residue. Just turn on the national news, and you will hear story after story about people who learn they have been using polluted water for years without knowing. Seniors, children and people with allergies or immune deficiencies are especially vulnerable to the bacteria and mineral deposits found in some tap water.

If you draw your water from a private well, you may think your water is purer than city water. But you know you still must watch for pollution from runoff and other forms of contamination including arsenic, microorganisms, iron and hydrogen sulfide. A POE system can help protect your family from all of these common problems people associate with using well water.

Make it More Convenient to Drink Healthy Water: You will no longer have to buy expensive, wasteful bottled water or worry about attaching an individual filter to every faucet in your home. A POE system makes it is easy to maintain your home's complete water system.

What Are the Benefits of a Whole House Water Filtration System?

There are many reasons a POE system makes sense for just about any home. A whole house water filtration system will:

  • Reduce the Amount of Chlorine in Your Water: Municipalities treat water with chlorine to kill microscopic organisms which make people sick. As it turns out, the cure may be worse than the disease. Chlorine can damage your skin, hair and lungs, causing rashes and making it difficult to breathe for some people. Even worse, research shows that when water and chlorine mix, Trihalomethanes (THMs) form. THM are known cancer-causing compounds.
  • Protects Against Chloramines: Chloramines are chemicals which can corrode the inside of your home’s pipe. This allows harmful metals to leach into your tap water making you and your family ill.
  • Gets Rid of Fluoride in Your Drinking Water: Most local governments add fluoride to water supplies to help prevent tooth decay in residents. Proof that fluoride in water helps to improve dental hygiene is in question, but many people believe fluoride causes many other health problems.
  • Make it More Convenient to Drink Healthy Water: You will no longer have to buy expensive, wasteful bottled water or worry about attaching an individual filter to every faucet in your home. A POE system makes it is easy to maintain your home’s complete water system.
