Water Filtration System for Your Home Boulder CO

Start by Considering Your Water Source:

  • Municipal Water Sources: If you rely on city water or public water supplies, you'll likely need a different system than someone with a private well. Municipal water usually contains chlorine, impacting taste and odor. You might also want to remove additional contaminants of concern like lead or arsenic.
  • Private Well Water: Since well water isn't treated by municipalities, testing is crucial to identify present contaminants. Common culprits include bacteria, nitrates, and iron.

Next, Factor in Your Budget:

Water filtration systems range from affordable to pricier options. Setting a budget beforehand helps avoid feeling overwhelmed later.

Now, Let's Explore the Different Types of Water Filter Systems:

  • Point-of-Use (POU) Systems: Sink or countertop filters are perfect systems to filter water for drinking and cooking. They're ideal if you only need to filter smaller amounts.
  • Point-of-Entry (POE) Systems: Installed where your water line enters your house, these systems filter all incoming water, including drinking water, shower, and bath water. They're perfect if you want comprehensive filtration throughout your home.
  • Whole-House Water Filter Systems: Combining POE and POU filtration, these house filtration systems offer the most extensive protection. They're ideal for those with severe water quality concerns or seeking maximum family protection.

Once you've considered these factors, you can start shopping for your system.

Here are some key points to remember when looking at water filtration solutions:

  • Look for NSF Certification: The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) tests and certifies water filtration systems for organic and harmful contaminant removal. Choose systems certified to remove the specific contaminants in your water.
  • Read Reviews: Before purchasing, take some time to read customer reviews. This can offer valuable insights into different systems' pros and cons.
  • Seek Professional Help: If you're unsure which system is right for you, consult one of our qualified plumbers. We can assess your water quality needs and recommend the ideal system for your home.
