Unlike single source water filtration (e.g., under counter systems), whole home water filtration systems are designed to be installed where water enters the home. This way every source of water in the house is filtered. What many people don’t know is that our bodies absorb many more chemicals through our skin than we do from drinking a glass of unfiltered tap water. When taking a shower or bath, the hot water opens the skin’s pores, allowing even more absorption of chemicals to take place. Additionally, whole home water filters dramatically improve the air quality in your home by taking chemicals out of your water that normally would evaporate when cooking, using the dishwasher and cleaning your clothes.
