Whole house water filters work to eliminate toxic chemicals such as chlorine. They also help to filter out any bugs, dirt, or debris. There are 3 main types of whole house water filters: water softeners, sediment filters, and carbon filters.
- Water softeners: Water softeners are the best filters to use if you have a hard water issue. Hard water is water that contains materials such as calcium and magnesium.
- Sediment filters: Sediment filters help to keep your water supply fresh and clean. They work to collect debris such as sand, dirt, and clay from damaging your pipes.
- Carbon filters: Carbon filters work to remove chlorine from your water supply and to keep the taste and smell of your water clean.
