Top Plumbing Tips For Choosing The Right Water Filter

Unfortunately, your drinking water may not be as clear as it seems. While it will not hurt to drink a little bit, drinking the same contaminated water every day may lead to the long term ingestion of unwanted chemicals and minerals. Learn some top plumbing tips to keep your family healthy and happy!

If you are interested in finding the right water filter for your home, Oceanside Services knows that you can only make your decision once you weigh-up your options. These are three top plumbing tips to help you narrow down your search:

Find Out What Is In Your Water

There is no water supply in the world (natural or manmade) that is completely free of contaminants. However, some supplies are far worse than others.

It is a good idea to request a copy of a quality report. Every utility company has to have one of these on record – it is the law. Request a copy and find out what contaminants your water may hold, that way you can buy a water filter that at the very least filters out those particular contaminates.

Learn The Difference Between Filter Types

3 Top Plumbing Tips For Choosing The Right Water FilterRemember, just shopping based on the price tag does not always guarantee you the best results. You have to remember that not all water filters are created equal.

There are the five main types of water filters: Ultraviolet Disinfection, Reverse Osmosis, Distiller, Cation Exchange Softener, and Activated Carbon Filter. Again, it depends on what your particular water source is to determine what the best possible water filter is. If you have any questions about the different options, Oceanside Services would be glad to help you narrow down which might be best suited for your area.

Look For An Independently Certified Design

Advertising is great, but you want to know whether the filter you are considering has been independently certified. These ensure that you are going beyond just marketing claims and have actual research that backs up the performance of these water filters.
