Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, people are running out and buying water bottles in droves. Not only is the plastic not good for the environment but there is no need to scramble in search of water. Depending on your needs and budget, there are choices of water filtering systems for your home. Choose from whole house filter systems and point-of-use water filters; both popular picks for your home.
Whole House Filter System
A whole house filter system treats all water before it enters your home. It is most often attached to the main water supply line that feeds the plumbing fixtures in your home. It not only treats your drinking water but treats your shower water, your appliances that use water, and protects your pipes from contaminates that can clog up appliances.
Point-of-Use Water Filter
Point-of-use water filters treat water at a single, specific tap. They are most commonly installed at the fixture in the kitchen but can also be installed in bathrooms. Instead of treating the water when it enters your home, point-of-use water filters treat water before it reaches the tap. These water filters work better than water pitchers and refrigerator filters. The cost is less than whole house filter systems and installation is easier, with the filter usually residing underneath the sink.
