Whole house well water filters are essential in removing contaminants that are unsafe for purposes beyond drinking and cooking. For example, while you do not drink water while brushing your teeth, bacteria-infested water can still cause a problem if a small amount is swallowed. Other contaminants, such as water-hardening minerals, may cause issues with your home’s plumbing. These types of contaminants must be removed before water enters your home’s plumbing.
You can make your well water safe to use with a whole-house filtration system, but you may wish to supplement your drinking water with a point-of-use system. Just because water is safe to drink does not necessarily mean it has a pleasant taste and odor. To remove additional contaminants from water that you will use for drinking and cooking, consider installing a point-of-use filter, such as a reverse osmosis system.
