What Is Water Filtration and Why Is It Important?

Benefits of Point-of-Entry Water Filtration and Point-of-Use Water Filtration

A water filtration system is connected to your existing water supply to reduce harmful impurities and other contaminants in the local water supply. These impurities can result in sediment, bad taste, odor, hardness, and bacteria, all of which take a toll on your water quality. Water hardness is the amount of dissolved calcium and magnesium in the water. If your water is “hard,” your appliances might not work as efficiently. If this damage becomes significant enough, an emergency plumbing service might be needed. For this reason, installing a water filtration system is a great way to be proactive about the plumbing system in your home.

We offer two types of water filtration systems at Plumbing Plus: point-of-entry water filtration and point-of-use water filtration. Point-of-entry water filtration filters all the water in your home, while point-of-use filtration devices filter water at specific outlets like your kitchen sink. When it comes to point-of-entry water treatment systems, we directly install these systems at the point where the water enters the home. Clients who want all of the water in their home treated love these systems. Benefits of a point-of-entry filtration system include:

  • Improving water quality in the home for common household and drinking purposes
  • Removing bacteria, chlorine, and particulates to soften the water and improve the smell and taste

As far as point-of-use water treatment systems, these are a bit different because they attach directly to a faucet or water source. Even though they do not directly work through every water source in the home, they are still great if you want to drink high quality water without impurities like nitrates and limescale. This is a convenient option for those who live in apartments, townhomes, or condos who want cleaner water, but might not have access to alter their entire filtration system. Benefits of a point-of-use filtration system include:

  • Enjoying safe and healthy drinking water
  • Enjoying cleaner clothes
  • Saving money on water bills
  • Helping save the environment
  • Reducing plumbing issues down the line
  • Preventing skin irritation
  • Reducing limescale and other harmful mineral deposits
