Numerous reports over the course of the past few years have indicated what’s possibly found in your tap water. Tap water may contain high levels of lead or chlorine, while underground water often becomes a breeding ground for parasites. Unfortunately, even bottled water isn’t as safe as once thought. However, if you have a water filtration system, you know the water you and your family or your employees drink will be safe as long as you regularly change the filter and have it serviced when necessary.
Importance of Filtered Water
Standard tap water contains chemicals used to remove parasites and other harmful matter from water. Also, chlorine is one of these chemicals, and this particular substance has a distinctive taste. Because a filter removes the chlorine, it provides you with water that tastes better than standard tap water. So, your water may still have bacteria, debris or other microscopic particles, especially if you have well water.
A water filter will remove these imperfections, preventing you from consuming them. A water filter is also cheaper than purchasing bottled water.

HOW WATER FILTRATION SYSTEMS WORK
A water filtration system works by either trapping, absorbing or altering harmful particles. The medium the water passes through is a mesh-like filter or strainer. In other cases, the filtration system takes in the contaminants via tiny pores. Each filtration comes with a rating that indicates how small the particles are that the filter takes in.
A sediment filter has fine holes that reduce particles and dirt. Generally, you’ll need to change these filters once or twice per year. You may opt for an activated carbon filter, which effectively removes contaminants that have the potential to change the odor, taste or color of your tap water. This type of filter removes the chlorine and anything chlorine leaves behind. A ceramic filter eliminates sediment, parasites and bacteria. The size of the material filtered determines the level of contaminants that remain in the water. Another option is a reverse osmosis filter, which separates particles using a barrier that only allows the water to pass through.
