What are the benefits of having a whole house water filtration system?

A whole home water filtration system offers a wide range of benefits for your entire home:

  • Safe for your family: A household water filter system ensures that every time you or your family use water in your home, you can be sure it’s safe and free from chlorine, chlorine byproducts, many chemicals and other harmful substances. 
  • A comprehensive shield: A whole house filter system safeguards every aspect of your water usage in the home, from drinking and cooking to bathing and laundering, even to washing your car, ensuring a comprehensive shield against impurities.
  • Protected appliances: Whole home water filters protect your appliances from dirt rust and sand, helping to extend their lifespan. For hard water areas, we recommend an additional water softener to prevent scale buildup.
  • Improved skin and hair health: By removing harsh chemicals in your shower water, household water filters can protect your skin and hair health. Without the drying effects of chlorine, your skin and hair can preserve its natural moisturising oils, improving the way you look and feel.
Are whole home systems better than point-of-use (POU) systems?

Whole home water purification systems and point-of-use systems serve different purposes. Whole home filtration systems filter water at the entry point, ensuring purified water throughout the house. This feature is ideal for overall water quality and appliance protection. POU systems, on the other hand, provide targeted filtration at a specific point, like a kitchen tap, offering a higher level of purification for drinking water. While the filters in whole house systems are very fine (typically between 5 to 20 microns), they need to be able to handle the flow rate required by showers, taps, toilets and appliances, so the pores are typically too large to be able to filter out microscopic contaminants like cysts and some heavy metals. It’s usually more effective to use a smaller dedicated undersink point-of-use filter system to achieve this level of filtration.

Ultimately, the choice depends on your specific needs - whole home for comprehensive coverage or POU for focused purification.

Is a home filtration system worth it?
Investing in a house water filter system is indeed worthwhile for many people. It not only improves the taste and safety of your water but also contributes to your long-term health by removing potentially harmful contaminants. A whole house filtration system can also save you money in the long run by reducing reliance on bottled water and protecting your appliances from damage caused by dirt, sand and rust.. In addition to these benefits, it’s important to note that with a home filtration system, you can contribute to environmental conservation by minimising plastic waste.
How do I choose the right whole house filtration system?

Choosing the right household water filter system for your home involves considering various factors to ensure you select a system that suits your specific needs:

  • Water Type: Start by determining your water supply type - mains water, or rainwater - so you can choose a filter system designed to remove the contaminants in that particular water supply.
  • Home Size: Larger homes usually require larger filter systems to ensure the flow of water is not affected..
  • Water Quality: Assess the quality of your local water supply to determine your area’s levels of contaminants, as this will help you select the right filter.
  • Water Usage Needs: Will you need filtered water only for drinking? Or will you also use it for cooking or bathing? Your water usage needs will determine what size household water filters your home requires.
  • Contaminant Assessment: Either obtain a water quality report from your local water supplier or use a home test kit for an assessment of the water in your residence.
  • Maintenance Requirements: Different whole home water purification systems require varying levels of maintenance so it’s important to consider how much time and effort you are willing to invest in upkeep.
  • Installation Space: Think about where the household water filter system will be stored. Do you have enough space indoors or would an outdoor setup be more feasible for your home?
