Home water purification systems are designed to be very effective, yet take up little space. For various reasons, many homeowners do not want to buy bottled water. They may think it slightly foolish to pay for extra water, when a "free" supply is available just by turning on the faucet. The problem is, that "free" water may not taste or smell good, and it may have levels of lead, chlorine, and other impurities that are not healthy.

Home water purification systems often use reverse osmosis to tackle the problems of pollutants in tap water. These units are of different sizes and configurations, but they fit underneath a kitchen sink. They attach to the cold water line and have their own water filtration faucets that rise above the level of the sink to dispense the water.

Home Water Purification Systems Cleanse Tap Water

The most effective of these systems use various kinds of filters to eradicate close to 100% of impurities. Even a single-stage unit, with one carbon filter, will remove most of the chlorine and foul taste and odor. A double-stage unit with a sediment filter and a carbon filter will take care of dirt as well as chlorine and taste and smell.

The best home water purification systems, though, have at least a five-stage process that removes sand, chlorine, organic material, and bad taste and smell. They also get rid of lead and bacteria. These systems can be counted on to produce pleasant-tasting, good-smelling, pure water by removing 90-96% of unwanted elements in drinking water from the tap.
