Entire House Water Filtration Systems and What You Need to Know

In this article, we will discuss the importance of whole house water filters. According to the World Health Organization, more than 1.7 billion people live with a contaminated water source. That is more than one fourth of the world’s population! Contaminated water can lead to the transmission of bacterial infections, diseases, and can even cause death. The value of having clean drinking can not be overstated. After all, it is one of our basic necessities as humans. However, even in countries like the United States that traditionally has sanitary water sources for its citizens and has some of the safest drinking water in the world, it does not come without its challenges. 

Nearly all of the drinking water in the United States comes from groundwater aquifers or fresh surface waters. However, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), our water sources can still be contaminated by chemicals, microbes, or radionuclides. The absolute safest way to consume drinking water is by using entire house water filtration systems. This adds an extra layer of protection to the drinking water available throughout your entire home, so in case there is a contaminant in your local tap water, it will be cleaned by the filter before you consume it.

We are AquaCubed, a company that develops entire house water filters, and in this article we’d like to go over everything you need to know about these filtration systems. Let’s get into it!

How Does the Water Filtration System Work?

While you probably understand that the water goes through the filter before you drink it and, voilà! Now the water is magically clean and safe to drink. But how does the water filtration system work

Our entire house water filtration systems combine four different filter media that are each of the highest grade and are NSF approved. The pores of these filters block larger impurities from passing by, and then the different filter media absorb the pollutants as the water passes by, so that only the water itself comes out of the faucet. 

The four different types of filter media that are used in our filtration systems are:

How Do You Maintain Whole House Water Filters?

Since water filters play such an important role in your health and wellbeing, it’s crucial that you stay up-to-date on routine maintenance of your filters. When you buy your filtration system from us at AquaCubed, it comes with the peace of mind of lifetime servicing. This includes three components:

  • Annual Maintenance: Our team will schedule annual check-ups with you to inspect and maintain your system to ensure that it is still operating properly.
  • Annual Water Testing: In addition to annual maintenance, we will come and test your water to ensure that it has a safe and drinkable pH level.
  • Unlimited Service Calls: If you have questions and concerns, we have answers and solutions. You can call us anytime for assistance with your system.

While these systems do require routine annual maintenance, there is very little required on your end. We will do the maintenance for you and help to ensure that you always have the safest and cleanest drinking water possible.

What are the Benefits of Water Filters?

The main benefit is of course clean and safe drinking water. In fact, this will make it so every single faucet in your entire house offers safe drinking water, not just the kitchen. So, if you wake up in the night and don’t want to walk all the way to the kitchen, you can fill your glass in the bathroom sink. If you have guests, this makes it easier for them to stay replenished as well.

Furthermore, water filters can also help with your hair and skin! When chlorine and other chemicals that are harmful to your body get removed from the water, it helps to improve the appearance and health of your skin and hair. In summary, these filters don’t just improve your health, but also your well being too.
