Do You Need A Whole House Water Filter?

Do you think that the tap water at your residence tastes or smells funny? Is it sometimes a murky color, or not clear? This may lead you to have concerns about your water quality and if it is safe. If this is the case, don’t worry. The answer is simple: install a whole home water filtration system that removes toxins and impurities. Our staff can walk you through how these work and whether or not one is a good idea for your property!

What Whole House Water Filter Does

Most tap water in the US is considered safe to drink, but around 10% of it is not. If the water supply in your area is tainted, it could be posing several risks to you and your family’s health.

A whole home water filtration system can remove the dangerous chemicals and compounds from the water before it comes out of the faucet. This means that the water is much safer to drink cook with, bathe in, wash dishes/clothes with, and more. It can also reduce things like minerals that do not affect your health but that can affect the color or taste of the water, or cause it to be “hard” water.

When to Consider a Whole Home Water Filter

If you’re not sure if you need a whole home water filter in your Santa Cruz home, you might want to consider one if:

  • You have high levels of chemicals like radon in your water. If your home tests high for radon and you get your water from a well that is dug into the same area, you should have your water tested, too.
  • You have high levels of lead in your water. There are some simple tests that we can do to check your water for lead.
  • You have a damaged or compromised immune systems, like people who are HIV positive or who are on certain medications. They may need chemicals removed from their water that most people can tolerate.

We’ll send someone out to evaluate your water and let you know if we find anything dangerous or unusual. From there, we can advise you as to if a whole house water purifier would work well for you.
