Steps for How to Choose a Water filter

STEP1

The simplest way to filter tap water is with a pitcher-style water filter, which has a granulated carbon filter that improves taste and odor, and removes some chlorine and sediment.

STEP2

 Faucet-mounted filters have a switch that diverts tap water through a granulated carbon filter. Turn on the switch for filtered drinking water; flip it off when washing dishes.

STEP3

For greater water filtration convenience and capacity, install an under-sink, dual-filter system that has its own gooseneck faucet.

STEP4

For optimum point-of-use filtration, consider a reverse-osmosis system. Water passes through a series of three filters, resulting in extremely clean, pure drinking water.

STEP5

Whole-house water filters are installed near the water main and are ideal for delivering clean, filtered water to every faucet throughout the entire house.

STEP6

There are a variety of filters available to remove a wide range of impurities.

 

STEP7

Sediment filters contain a stainless-steel pre-screen filter and back-flush system that automatically cleans the filter.

STEP8

For the highest level of water filtration, first have your tap water tested, then call in a water-treatment specialist to install a whole-house filtration system designed specifically to treat your water.
