Green Water Filtration

Updated on June 4, 2013

Why a Whole Home Water Filter?

Homes are being encouraged to install water filters because the water analysis on some cities drinking water is showing higher levels of chlorine. Some homes already have a water filter installed and if you're not sure here's where to look. Locate the water main that comes into the home. This is where the main water shut-off valve is for the entire house. If you do not see a system right there, (similar to the one below) you probably don't have a water filtration system. There are testers that you can get to test the water for chlorine. Sometimes the water will turn green or pink if there is chlorine present. The color is dependant of the company where is was purchased. 


Installation of the water filtration system is fairly simple however it should be installed by a professional plumber. Most installations will vary but a typical installation will take approximately 1-4 hours depending on the area the filter system is going to be.

      Yes I agree. Not only for the drinking water but it's the water we bathe in. For the unit to take chemicals out of the water that is being absorbed in the skin when bathing or showering, it's worth it. Thanks for stopping by.

      One of the good way to save in this economy is to install a water filter like this. Families will save over bottled water--even if it's just a few dollars, pounds, or whatever your currency.
