Whole house filtration systems are more advanced than pitchers and under counter systems and they treat the water at the point where it enters the home. These systems result in treated water that flows throughout the entire home, rather than just at a single sink or faucet.

Drinking Water Filters

  • NSF Certified To Reduce 60+ contaminants
  • Indicator Light
  • Undersink Installation Options

Two of the most common and convenient types of drinking water filters are pitchers and under counter filters.

Water pitchers are the most basic water filters and use gravity to move water through a filter. They require no setup; however, they constantly need to be refilled as water is used.

Under counter filters usually filter water in a secondary, smaller faucet within the sink, instead of the main faucet.

Identify Your Water Filtration Needs

Water Filter Options

While home water filters use similar technologies to clean your water, there are differences among them. You’ll need to decide between two main types of systems: Point-of-use (POU) systems and whole house/point-of-entry (POE) systems.

  • POU Systems - These systems treat the water where you drink or use your water. Products that fall into this category include water pitchers, faucet filters, and reverse osmosis (RO) systems.

  • Whole House/(POE) Systems - These systems treat the water as it enters a home and are typically installed near the water meter (municipal) or pressurized storage tank (well water). UV microbiological systems, water softeners, and whole house filters fall into this category of filters.

Learn What Your Tap Water Contains

The first step is to find out what is in your water by obtaining a copy of your water quality report from your local water utility company. You can also have a water test completed.

Once you know what contaminants are in your water, you can find a treatment solution that will be most effective for your specific needs and address your main water quality concerns.
