What is water filtration?

Water filtration uses physical barriers, chemicals, or biological processes to remove contaminants from water. In doing so, water taste, color, and purity is enhanced. Water filtration removes larger particles and bacteria but may not always eliminate chemicals and viruses. If you’re dealing with really nasty water, water purification may be the better option.

Water purification uses chemical processes to eliminate things that water filtration cannot. Biological contaminants, chemicals, and viruses are no match for a water purification system. Purification systems also remove minerals from water. 

Understanding Different Water Filtration Methods

There are portable straw-like water filters and filtered pitchers that you put in your refrigerator. There are some water filters that can be attached to a specific faucet and others that can treat all the water in the house. Water filters are installed under the sink and use a separate tap. Filters in the shower remove chlorine and other contaminants that cause skin and hair damage. If you’re seeking to filter water for the entire house, a filtration system can be hooked up to the home’s main line. Main line filters remove sediment and contaminants and tend to use activated carbon filters to achieve their means.

Ordering a water test is a great place to start when deciding on a filtration system. A water test can tell you what kinds of contaminants are in your water.
