Water Filtration Systems


Whole House Water Systems
Don't Need To Cost A Fortune

whole house water systemYou don’t need to pay $6000 for whole house water systems.  Everyone needs point-of-use or home filtration.  It’s my job to let you all know that home filtration is affordable.

Our public utilities do a great deal to protect our health.  Without them, we would have to worry about waterborne diseases, which in undeveloped countries are a major health threat.  In order to do their job, the treatment facilities use chlorine. 

It is our job to protect our families from the hazards of chlorine.  We can do that, affordably.

My biggest concern is that some of the high prices will scare you.  You might think that it is cheaper to buy bottled water for drinking and continue to shower in chemicals that may increase your risk of cancer.  Let me tell you, right now, that the best whole house water systems on the market are very affordable.  The initial purchase is a little less than $1000 and a good plumber can install it in about an hour.  The typical installation cost is around $175.

According to estimates from the Environmental Working Group, the average family of four spends $1200 per year on bottled water.  You may have already done the math.  The cost to purchase and install an effective system is $1175.  You save just a little money in the first year, but after that, you’ll save about a thousand dollars per year.  That could help with the kids’ college fund.

So, why are some whole house water systems so expensive?  It’s one thing when the system is designed for someone with a private well, with a variety of different contaminants, but most of these products are designed for homes serviced by a public treatment facility.  Our needs are relatively simple and with today’s technology, relatively inexpensive.

With a lot of pseudo-scientific jargon, companies try to convince people that they can “imbue” their water with health-giving qualities.  That’s how one company gets people to pay nearly $6000 for their system.  When you cut through the hype, you see that the system is no better than any other granular carbon filter. 

Then you have the companies that claim reverse osmosis is a necessary and desirable step.  With their sales pitches, they get a person to pay three to four thousand dollars for something that is actually unnecessary, requires lots of maintenance, uses electricity and removes naturally occurring minerals, but does not remove chlorine.

That’s why whole house water systems that include reverse osmosis must also include a granular carbon step.  Carbon is the only effective method for chlorine reduction. 

The best system removes more than 99% of the chemical and is certified by Underwriter’s Laboratory to do so.  It does not include reverse osmosis, but it does remove any particles that are larger than 5 microns.  It protects your health and your plumbing.

The technology is recognized by the US EPA as the most effective method for chemical reduction.  Hopefully, you see that whole house water systems can be effective and still be affordable.
