Well water filtration uses many components to be sure you end up with safe and excellent tasting water. It is more complicated than reaching for a glass and turning on your faucet in hope of getting healthy clean drinking water.

Well water filtration has some of the same features that city water filtration does, but there are more steps involved, because with city water some of the steps have been taken care of by the municipal water plant.

One important step is to have your well water tested. You can buy do-it-yourself kits, or you can send samples of your water into various services that will provide you with results through the mail. Your county government should have a list of state certified/licensed laboratories in your area that will test for contaminates.

In many places the city water plant uses reverse osmosis, which would eliminate the sediment, dirt, silt and sand from the water. For people with wells they need to do this process themselves, for a couple of reasons. One being these particles will harm their water pump if not removed. Another reason is the particles are unhealthy for consumption.

Well water filtration also has to have a purifying process to get rid of all dangerous chemicals. This can be accomplished by purchasing a whole house water purification system or a point of use unit.

The whole house system would filter all the water that comes into the house, making it safe to consume and bathe or shower in. Shop carefully when looking for these units because they can be quite pricey. I've seen them for as high as $2500.00, but there is a very good one on the market for only $800 and it filters out everything harmful. So don't spend an arm and a leg for a unit.

The point of use models are also very effective if you shop carefully and make sure you get one that uses the right technology to filter out all the dangerous substances in water today. To find the best technology you need a system that uses different types of filter. No one type of filter can remove all the dangerous substances, such as chlorine, weed killers, drugs, lead, mercury, the list could go on and on.

The best combos to buy are sub micron filters with carbon filters and a multi bock filter that has an ion exchange included. These four medias together will filter out all the unhealthy elements that get into our water through ground water runoff and from our streams and lakes. They will also remove chlorine, and heavy metals, such as lead and mercury.

Whether you are in need of well water filtration or city water filtration you need to be sure to purchase the right water purification unit so you will be assured of having safe healthy water to drink. Don't delay. Buy a unit today.
