Having a centrally installed water purification or water filtration system in your home is a great way to ensure that you have the highest quality drinking water available. You want your family members to have access to clean water for drinking, bathing and cooking. This keeps everyone healthy. There are different types of water purification systems that can be installed in your home including whole house, point-of-use and point-of-entry. Let North County Plumbing help you choose the right purification system for you and your family.

Whole House Filtration System

The most common choice for homeowners is the whole house filtration system. This type of purification system can correct problems in your contaminant levels and impurities found in your water. These systems use a wide variety of purification technologies to treat contamination in water and can treat anything from man-made chemicals to natural chemicals to heavy metals. It is important to have a water purification system installed by a professional plumbing company. Whole house filtration systems need scheduled maintenance so that they achieve maximum performance and efficiency.

Point-of-Use System

Another popular type of water purification system is the point-of-use system. If your area has high levels of contaminants and chemicals in the water supply, then you should consider installing a point-of-use system in your home. Simply installing a small carbon filter to your kitchen or bathroom faucets isn’t enough. A reverse osmosis water filtration system is one example of a point-of-use unit. The larger models can filter out a much larger amount of water faster than smaller units. Some of the systems require a permanent connection to the existing under the sink plumbing, so it is in your best interest to hire an experienced plumber to ensure the work is done correctly.

Point-of-Entry System

Another system you can install is called a point-of-entry. This is typically installed in a basement and treats all the water that comes into the home before it goes anywhere else that has a faucet. These systems can do the same type of filtration that a point-of-use system does, but it can also remove high concentration of minerals that will soften your water supply. Soft water uses less soap for laundry and also can make your hair and skin softer after taking a shower. A point-of-entry water filtration system should also be installed by a professional plumber because it will affect the entire water supply of your home.
