6 great quality whole house water purifiers you can rely on.

Whole House Water Purifiers

Whole House Water Purifiers are point of entry filter systems that filter the water coming from the city or from a well as it enters your home. A whole house water filter purifies all the water entering the home, including water going to bathrooms, toilets, showers, sinks, the fridge, and other places. Whole House systems are a great way to economically cleanse your water and improve the quality of what you do drink.

Purenex 20-Inch Big Blue Whole House Filtration System

The Purenex 20-Inch Big Blue Whole House water filtration system removes sediment, chlorine, pesticides, herbicides, organics, MTBE, and THM from the water before it enters your home. It removes other chemicals and contaminants as well. It retails for $250 and costs an average of $278.93 every year. Remember, this system filters all the water coming into your home. On average for a family of 4, that is about 109,500 gallons a year. This comes out to about 1/4 of a cent per gallon of water filtered each year. This is a great quality system and the company backs it with a solid warranty. Most of the yearly costs incurred involve changing the filters.
