A whole house water filter, depending on its quality, will remove dangerous contaminants from the water you drink and use to bathe, cook, and clean. But before you begin searching for a whole house water filter, have a professional test your water to find out what kind of contaminants are present in your water and determine the right type of filter for your needs.
Here are a few whole house water filters you might consider installing in your home.
