Water Filtration SystemsIt might not be something you’ve thought of before, but picking the right water filtration system for you home can be tricky. There are a number of different types out there, and while each of them carries out the same job, they work in very different ways. In most homes, you’ll usually find one of two systems. These are the POU system and the POE systems.

What’s the Difference?

Point of Use Systems (POU) are filters that treat water once it has passed through the pipes in your home. On the other hand, Point of Entry Systems (POE) are filters that treat water as it enters your home before it comes out of your faucets. You may have heard of these before as they are commonly referred to as whole house systems.

What’s the Best Choice?

Everyone’s home is different, therefore, home water filtrations differ from building to building. There are a couple of steps that you can take to establish which type of system is best for your home. So, first off, take a look at the points below.

What’s in your water? By understanding what is in your water, you’ll begin to understand what type of filtration system you need. For example, are there toxins that you’re looking to remove or is it simply some minor impurities that your water contains? This can be easy enough to find out. Obviously, you can take a look at your water or you can obtain a home water report which will identify the quality of the water in your home.

What contaminants do you want to reduce? You’re off to a good start if you already know what contaminants it is that you want to get rid of. With this in mind, different filtration systems will work at removing different nasties, so you can pick the right one for you.

We have recently completed a remodel of an 80 year old house and we used Pratt Plumbing for all of the plumbing renovation. Pratt was great in all respects: their ideas, their work, their timeliness, their prompt attention to details and follow through all were and continue to be of the highest caliber. Their invoices are reasonable and we would recommend Pratt Plumbing to anyone in need of minor or major plumbing work.
