Choosing the Right Filtration System

Choosing the right water filtration system can be a difficult and time-consuming task. Each household has a unique set of needs that differ based on location, water usage and personal preferences. In order to help make the best decision for your specific needs, our experts have developed a simple 3 step process so you find the perfect product:
Step 1: Identify Your Installation Type
- Point of Use - Filter your water with an under-sink system that provides water via a dedicated faucet. Flow rates are one gallon per minute (GPM) or less. These systems are typically installed in kitchens, baths, and bars.
- Full Flow - Enjoy filtered water from your existing kitchen or bath faucet. These filters typically allow a 2.5 GPM flow rate.
- Whole House - Filter all water entering your home by installing a filter at the point where your water supply line enters your home.
Step 2: Choose Your Desired Purity Level
- Basic filters improve taste and odor while at the other end of the spectrum the best filters remove tiny, difficult to remove elements. To compare a broad range of filters, we recommend visiting NSF International.
Step 3: Confirm Compatibility
- Each installation is unique. Consider the space available for your under-sink installations. If using an existing faucet, confirm that you'll have all necessary connections. If your house has higher water pressure, be sure to add a Pressure Regulating Valve (PVR).
