Finally, an Affordable DIY Whole House Water Filter
Your local water treatment plant uses chlorine to kill bacteria, parasites and viruses that might be lurking in your city or town’s water supply, but adding chlorine to water creates problems of its own. Even small amounts of chlorine have the potential to harm everything from your skin and hair to your household appliances and plumbing, so health- and cost-conscious homeowners are increasingly opting for whole house water filters and purifiers.
Once too expensive for many homeowners, home water purifiers have become more affordable in recent years. The Shower Filter Store’s WaterSource II Whole House Filtration System is among the most affordable and effective models on the market.
How It Works
Easy for any do-it-yourselfer to install, the WaterSource II double-tank water purification system eliminates chlorine and other potentially harmful substances from your entire home’s water supply, ensuring that the water you drink, bathe in, cook with and otherwise use is as safe and free from contaminants as possible. In addition to filtering out chlorine and chlorine vapors, the home water purifier also eliminates volcanic organic compounds, sediment and foul odors from your water supply, leaving your water tasting and smelling clean and pure.
Installed where your water line enters your home, the water purifier also lowers the pH levels of the water you consume, making it less likely to corrode and damage your pipes.
How It Helps
While your local water treatment plant takes the first steps in cleaning your water, water filters for your home take the process several steps further. A whole home water purifier also leads to the following benefits.
- Lower Costs
Switching from bottled water to filtered drinking water can save you hundreds of dollars each year. The WaterSource II keeps whole house water filter costs low and often pays for itself within a matter of months by reducing your reliance on plastic bottled water and reducing damage caused to your pipes and appliances.
- A Reduction in Skin Issues & Conditions
Have psoriasis, eczema or a similar skin condition or live with someone who does? Chlroine, fluoride and other substances in water may exacerbate these conditions, but purifying your water before use helps relieve them.
- A Reduction in Appliance & Plumbing Repair Bills
Feel like you’re repairing your dishwasher, washing machine, ice maker or other water-dependent appliances more often than you should? Running unfiltered water through your pipes and appliances can lead to buildup, which in turn can damage your internal plumbing system. Once upon a time, you may have asked yourself whether you could afford the costs associated with installing a whole home water filter. Now that an affordable model has hit the market, the question is no longer whether you can afford it, but rather, whether you can afford not to install one.
