Knowing that the water you drink is fresh and free of contaminants is always important for both your health and well-being. Bit when it’s time to pick the right water filtration system for your home or office, there are a few factors you’ll want to consider, to make sure you get the best system that’s right for you.
First, you’ll want to consider just where your water is coming from. How filtered and clean is the water already? Does the water come from a natural source like a well, or has it already been processed by a city’s existing systems? This will help you determine just how robust a system you’ll need, or what the filter is going to do for you. Some filters just modify the flavor or odor of water, rather than eliminate bacteria or other foreign particles, which might be more of what you’re looking for should your water actually come from a pre-filtered public source.
Secondly, you will want to determine your budget, as well as just how extensive you want the filtration to be across your home’s water supply. Will a simple water filter pitcher be all that you require, or do you need an integrated system that fits directly into your plumbing such as an oncounter or under-the-sink setup? Or perhaps you feel you’d be best off with a whole-house system that, while fairly expensive and intrusive in its installation, would ensure all water entering your home is completely processed.
Finally, you’ll want to consider how complicated replacing the filters will be, and choose a system that you will feel comfortable maintaining regularly, be it at home or if it’s an office system.
