Is A Full House Water Filter Right For Your Home?

by Scarlett Ross

You have probably heard of full house water filters, but might not know why you need one. There are several good reasons you should consider buying and installing one, but one of the most important is that it can protect your family from impurities in the water. If you are thinking of investing in a full house water filter, here is what you need to know:

Why Do You Need a Full House Water Filter?

The municipal in which you live is responsible for filtering the water before it reaches your home, and it does this job. Unfortunately, as part of the process, harmful chemicals are sometimes added to the water.

For instance, chloramine is routinely added. The chloramine can cause the interior of your plumbing lines to deteriorate. When this happens, your water could end up with substances, such as copper, in it.

If you have a drinking water filter installed, it might not be up to the job of filtering the water as needed. The amount of chemicals that are in the water can overwhelm the filter and cause expediated wear and tear. A full house water filter would take the pressure off the drinking filter and you can be sure that it is up to doing its job.

What Should You Know When Buying the Filter?

Before you start your search for the full house water filter that is right for your home, you need to find out whether chloramines or chlorine is being used at your local municipal water district. Although most water filters can remove chlorine from the water, not all can remove chloramine. If chloramine is being used, you need to narrow your focus to filters that can remove the chemical.

During your search for a full house water filter, you also need to find a drinking water filter if you do not have one installed already. The combination of both water filters can guarantee that the water that you and your family are drinking is free of impurities.

In addition to this, you need to pay close attention to the certification for the full house water filter. You want to ensure that the filter has been certified by the National Sanitation Foundation, or NSF. The organization helps to set the standards for water quality.

Gardening For Aesthetics

If you aren't interested in growing your own fruits and veggies, gardening becomes more about aesthetics than it does about functionality. I started thinking carefully about what I could do in order to make my yard more beautiful a few years ago, so I began tearing out the weeds and focusing on creating a more welcoming space. I added a few trees and shrubs, renovated my flower beds, and started focusing on finding ground covers that would look great. This blog is all about gardening to improve the aesthetics of your yard.
