Are Whole House Water Filters Necessary?

In general, water quality in Northern Virginia is excellent, but some areas have better water than others and if you have a well on your property rather than municipal water, it’s a good idea to have a whole house water filtration system installed. Some areas of Northern Virginia have hard water, which contains calcium and magnesium that causes build up in pipes, appliances, on your faucets, shower, and bathtub, etc. A whole house water filter can remedy this problem.

What Do Water Filters Do?

A whole house water filter purifies water by removing both chemicals and physical particles. The benefit of a whole house water filter is that all of the water from all of your faucets and appliances is pure; under-sink water filter systems and faucet water filters only purify water coming from your kitchen faucet and pitches just filter drinking water.

How Do Water Filters Work?

There are two types of filtration: physical filtration and chemical filtration. Physical filtration is a barrier that is used to remove particles, like sand, dirt, and minerals, from your water. Other contaminants can be removed by chemical filtration, which relies on chemical reactions to remove impurities. An example of this type of water filtration is activated carbon. A UV filtration system can also be added in order to kill harmful bacteria and viruses that may be in well water.

What Do Water Filters Remove?

The best whole house water filters remove a variety of contaminants to ensure that your water is as safe as possible, whether you’re drinking it, washing your clothes, or giving your kids a bath. Whole house water filters can remove:

  • Chlorine

  • Bacteria

  • Viruses

  • Pesticides

  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

  • Lead

  • Mercury

  • Minerals that cause hard water deposits

How Long Does a Whole House Water Filter Last?

Knowing when to change whole house water filters depends on the amount of water your family uses and the tank size. Typically the filter needs to be changed every three to six months or for every 10,000 gallons of water usage. Tanks in a whole house water filtration system usually need to be changed after several years, depending on the size of the system.
