Whole House Filters

HEALTHY WATER IN EVERY ROOM

One thing many new homeowners don’t spend much time considering when building a new home or a remodel is the quality of their water. The best time to consider this is right after the cabinets and appliances are installed.

If there’s chlorine in your water (and that’s highly likely as municipal treatment systems add it to water to disinfect it), it can turn to chloroform in steam. If there are lead pipes in your house that you can’t replace, that’s reason enough to consider a system that removes lead and other potentially harmful contaminants. Filtration is an upgrade that you can’t see, but it can make a difference in your entire home from the brightness of your laundry to the taste of your food — not to mention saving you and your family from drinking and bathing in harmful water contaminants. Aquasana offers residential water filtering that will remove 97 percent of the chlorine from your water, and whole home systems cover your entire house from the outset, so you don’t even have to think twice as you turn on the faucet.

Whole House Filters for Clean, Healthy Water from Every Tap

Aquasana’s whole house filter systems are a whole home solution designed to reduce harmful contaminants from your family’s tap water.
