Water filters & water filtration systems

Are bad smells and funny tastes causing you to second guess getting water from your sinks? Have you been using bottled water for cooking because your tap water ruins your food? Have you been pulling dishes out of the dishwasher that look dirtier when they went in? You sound like you need a water filtration system! James A. Wheat & Sons can install a water filter or water filtration system in your home can solve all of your bad water problems.

Water filters vs. water filtration systems

Many people think of water filters and water filtration systems as being the same things. In reality, however, they are quite different.

Water filters are small units that go under your sink and filter out the water coming out of your faucet. Usually they are installed along with another faucet that dispenses only purified water. These are helpful if your home’s water quality isn’t terrible but you don’t quite feel comfortable drinking water from your tap. For example, many families throughout Maryland and Washington, DC are on well water. While this isn’t terrible, occasionally it can have a funny taste or smell that makes drinking filtered water far preferable. Under sink water filters come with replaceable cartridges and, if well maintained, can last for years.

Whole house filtration systems are designed for homes with really bad water quality that affects more than just their sinks. Typically installed in the basement, garage or water heater closet, whole house water filtration systems offer several stage water filtration that ensures cleaner than bottled water quality to all the water entering your house. Whole house water filtration systems come with easily replaceable filters and are typically designed to last for over 300,000 gallons – that’s about 6 – 7 years or more!

Benefits of installing a water filtration system

Installing a water filtration system can provide huge benefits to you and your family:

Water filters and water filtration systems provide clean water – when water comes out of the city pipes, you never know what will come along with it – many city pipes routinely test positive for rust, dirt, debris and even lead! By installing a water filter or water filtration system in your home, you’ll get water that tastes and smells the way water should – like nothing. By having a water filtration system, you filter out all the contaminants that pollute your water. Therefore, not only will you improve your water quality, but you will improve your overall health and well-being too.

Water filters and water filtration systemsare inexpensive and convenient – many families throughout the Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC area have water that smells and tastes so bad that they have to use bottled water for cooking as well as drinking. Even though gallon jugs of water typically cost less than a dollar each, the price can still add up – especially when you consider that tap water is practically free! Installing a water filtration system can save you a lot of money over time – and keep a lot of water jugs out of the landfill!

Water filters and water filtration systems improve your overall water quality – poor water quality affects more than just your health – chemicals and mineral deposits in your water can build up in your pipes, leading to clothes that get ruined by the washer, dishes with water spots and hard water scale that can potentially damage your pipes. Running your water through a water filtration system before it moves through your pipes can help keep all areas of your home safe from the effects of poor water quality.

Installing a water filtration system in your home can provide 8-12 years of bottled quality water from every tap in your home. If you live in Maryland or Washington, DC and want to install a water filtration system, call James A. Wheat & Sons today!
