How does a water filtration system in your home do its job?


Drinking water is good for your health as it helps to keep you hydrated. This means that your kidneys can work as they should. It also helps to keep your skin fresh and supple. Many people opt to drink bottled water because they think it is a safer option than tap water; this is not necessarily the case. There is nothing to suggest that bottled water is any safer to drink than the water which comes straight from the tap in your home. 

The best thing to do, if you want to make sure you have clean and safe water to drink, is invest in a water filtration system for your home. This means that you can have all of the water you need on tap. 

Why can you not just drink tap water?

You may be wondering what is so bad about just drinking tap water. The truth is that you can drink water straight from the tap but it may not look, taste or smell that great. There is also a danger of people developing stomach upsets if there are any contaminants in the water. 

Water can be adversely affected by the chlorine which is used to rid it from bugs. It can also be contaminated with things such as dirt and pesticides. You want to make sure that all of these are removed from the water before you drink it; to make it as safe and tasty as possible. 

How does a water filtration system work to remove contaminants from your water supply?

One of the most popular choices, when filtering water, is to use a reverse osmosis water filter. This system works as follows:

The system is attached to the water outlet and the water enters the system and is passed through an initial filter. In some systems there is more than one filter at this point. This part of the process is intended to remove any large particles that may damage the semi-permeable membrane which forms the main part of the system. 

-The water then passes through the membrane where contaminants are removed.

-Once the water has passed through this part of the system it is stored in a tank. 

-When clean water is required it passes through a final filter and is delivered through the tap on the system. 

-All of the contaminants that are removed from the water travel down the system drain into the drainage system of your home. 

This is not the only form of water filtration you can use, but it is one of the most effective. 

Hopefully, we have shown you why drinking water straight from the tap is not a good idea. It makes sense to use a water filtration system to make sure that the water you drink is not contaminated. There are plenty of water filtration systems on the market, so you should be able to fit one that meets your needs and your budget.
