Whole Home Filtration Systems
Whole-home water filtration systems are becoming more popular and are able to provide better quality water than under the sink reverse osmosis system. This article will cover what you need to know about how whole home water filtration systems. These systems consist of a resin bed with an activated granular carbon filter that traps contaminants and organics in water. The activated granular carbon filter is very effective at removing pesticides, herbicides, chlorine, lead, cysts, microbes, radon, THMs, VOCs, MTBE, TCE, Atrazine, and other chemicals. In addition, they will also remove someradiol, which is a cancer-causing chemical.

If you look at them on the shelf, you will see that they all have a similar design. They use a semi-permeable membrane to block large particles such as dust and sand. They work great at removing sediment from your drinking water supply, but not much else. Foreign contaminants bypass these systems and flow right through to your tap.
RO was designed for industrial and commercial use, where it was used for cleaning large workspaces. It is not suited to removing small particles such as those found in your water supply, or at your kitchen faucet.
