Is Home Water Treatment & Purification Worth It?
It’s a mistake to think that community-based water treatment systems remove all the pollution and contamination in the water stream. While these remove significant quantities of toxins, etc., they don’t remove them all. Moreover, from the water treatment plant to the tap in your home, there are plenty of places for contamination to enter back into the water you drink.
Modern water treatment and purification systems are designed to remove the following types of contamination from your water:
- Chemical: Both natural and artificial chemicals, including bleach, pesticide, nitrogen, salts, toxins, etc.
- Physical: Algae, dirt, sediment, minerals, metals, etc.
- Biological: Microbes, bacteria, parasites, viruses, and other microbial and biological contaminants.
- Radiological: Including radon, plutonium, uranium, cesium, etc.

How Whole Home Water Filtration Works
There are many types of water filters, but they all work the same. They are designed to sift the impurities from the water stream by removing them one layer at a time. As the water moves through the filter, each layer picks up different-sized particles, ranging in size from a grain of sand to as small as bacteria.
The resulting clean water is fresh and healthy. It won’t damage your plumbing fixtures, infect you with a water-borne illness, or lead to life-altering afflictions such as cancer. As a result, water filters are a cost-effective investment that will save you money in many ways.
