  • Water Filtration Systems Deliver Safer Water

    drinkwaterAfter hours of yard work on a hot summer day, there’s nothing like guzzling a nice glass of ice cold water. But even though that water tastes great, do you know how safe it is?

    Most municipal water systems in America filter many pollutants, but despite local, state, and federal water regulations, contaminants still find their way into our water supply. The EPA is required by law to send you a “Consumer Confidence Report” by July 1 each year which details where your drinking water comes from, what contaminants have been found in it, and how contaminant levels compare to national standards. But if you want to be sure all year long that your water is free of pollutants, you can take matters into your own hands and filter your water.

    While pitcher filters, faucet attachments, and fridge filters make your water taste better, good taste doesn’t always mean the water is healthy since some chemicals don’t get filtered out. And dangers can also lurk in the water your family bathes in since contaminants can be absorbed through the skin.

    So what’s the best way to get truly clean water? By having a water filtration system installed.

    Point-of-Use Systems

    This type of system is installed only near sinks where you’ll be drinking and cooking with water. Some POU faucet filters use small carbon filters that trap chemicals from making water taste and smell bad, and some filtration systems use reverse osmosis by basically using a barrier method which separates the good things in water from the bad things in water.  Larger models of this kind are able to filter high volumes of water faster than smaller units can, and last up to one year. You’ll need to hire a plumber to install a point-of-use system, since it requires a permanent connection to the existing plumbing.

    Point-of-Entry Systems

    A point-of-entry water filtration system treats all water coming into the house before it goes into faucets. This system is typically installed in the basement, and can filter out a lot of the minerals and excess chlorine that can cause your water to taste and smell bad. It also removes high concentrations of calcium and magnesium deposits that create hard water problems. If you have buildup on your shower doors or filmy dishes, the point-of-use filtration system could be what you need. A licensed plumber will need to install it since it deals with your home’s entire water supply.


    If you want more details about how a point-of-use or whole house water filtration system can make your water cleaner, give Putman Plumbing a call.
