Are Whole House Water Filters Worth It?
While the treatment center processes and treats the water before distributing it to your home, not everything is removed. This is especially true as new and emerging contaminants like PFOA, PFOS, pesticide and pharmaceutical runoff has impacted our water sources. Many treatment centers weren’t set up to eliminate some of these contaminants, and haven’t been updated to be effective. Further, water can pick up more contaminants as it travels from treatment centers to your home from aging infrastructure and old lead piping. This is where a whole house filter can help.
