Adding water filtration to a home is a serious project; if not spec’d and installed correctly, a filtration system can end up being a costly mistake instead of a solution to water problems. When going about the task of selecting equipment and installers for your own water filtration system, it’s good to keep in mind a few key things in order to make sure you end up with the system you need – nothing more and nothing less. Here are three best practices to abide by when adding a water filtration system, whether it’s for your entire home or just a single area.
Best Practice #1: Treat drinking water with higher priority. This might seem like common sense, but not everyone has the foresight to think about how their drinking water might be used differently from the water they use to take a bath, water the grass, or wash the car. Would the same filtration standards need to be the same for all of the water in your home?
Best Practice #2: Learn about your home’s plumbing. How is the main water supply distributed to the entirety of the house? Are there areas where older plumbing has been replaced with newer plumbing? When was the last time your home’s plumbing was inspected for corrosion, leaks, and other faults?
Best Practice #3: Only use a trusted installer for any new water project. It might be tempting to hop onto Craigslist to find a water consultant. You could just cross your fingers and hope they know what they’re talking about, but chances are you wouldn’t be happy with the outcome of their work.
By adhering to these best practices, you are doing your part to ensure that your home water filtration system is designed and installed in a way that meets your needs perfectly. If you need help determining the best system for your home, contact the LeverEdge. We’re here to help!
