There is a world of dust and dirt in our water supply, tiny little particles that we unknowingly ingest every day. This is true even in the best communities, unless you take the proactive step of filtering your water. Water filtration is a simple and effective way to make sure your family is drinking water free from sediment and other contaminants.

Sediment and particulate matter dwell within our municipal water supplies, despite the noblest efforts of our local governments and utility concerns. Usually, to scrub the water free from contaminants, chlorine or other chemicals are placed in the water, which only cause a different set of health concerns. The best way to protect yourself is by getting your own water filtration system.

Filters: Sediment Impediments

A sediment filter is a fine screen through which your untreated water flows before it reaches your drinking glass. The water is able to pass through this filter, but sediment and other particles cannot. The water that reaches your family has been cleared of over 99 percent of the solid contaminants that once were a part of it.

Filtered water looks, smells and tastes infinitely superior to untreated water. The clarity alone lets you know that it is a great deal cleaner than the water to which you had grown accustomed. Sediment builds up on the filter over time, and it is important to replace your filters at regular intervals to ensure that your water quality does not diminish substantially.
