There are many ways to approach filtering water in your home in order to make it clean and safe for drinking and washing. The simplest, most common method is an Under-The-Sink Water Filtration System. This is typically installed under the kitchen sink so that the water you use for cooking and drinking is clean and uncontaminated.


A more comprehensive approach is a Whole-House Water Filtration system. By installing a WHWF system, you have taken the necessary steps to guarantee that the water coming through all the faucets and pipes in your home has been treated.


There are many options and approaches we can take to enhancing the quality of your home's water, some of which complement the two approaches mentioned above. A few of these other water enhancing options worth considering include:

  • Iron Filters
  • Reverse Osmosis Systems
  • Water Softeners
  • Cartridge Filters
  • Physical H20 Softeners
