This is Why Every Home in Utah Needs a Water Filter

Have you been considering purchasing a water filter for your home, but you’re still on the fence about it? 

Few things in your home are as important as clean drinking water, and a water filter is the easiest and most effective way of ensuring the water in your home is safe and pure.

Unfortunately, many homeowners in Utah may find that their water has a funny taste, is discolored, or even has a bad odor. While not necessarily a sign of contamination, these usually aren’t good signs.

Here’s why every homeowner in Utah should be filtering their water. 

Legal vs. Safe Water

The United States Environmental Protection Agency has set legal standards for drinking water quality nationwide. While these standards set the legal limit for contaminants, they haven’t been updated in over 20 years. Municipalities throughout Utah must maintain the minimum legal standard for safe drinking water, but just because the water meets the legal limits doesn’t make it safe for consumption.

Utah’s Hard Water

According to data provided to the Environmental Workings Group by the Utah Department of Environmental Quality, drinking water in Utah has many contaminants that exceed health guidelines, including:

  • Radium
  • Nitrate
  • Arsenic
  • Chromium
  • Chloroform
  • Bromodichloromethane
  • Dichloroacetic acid

If the thought of arsenic or chloroform being present in your drinking water gives you pause, a water filtration system can give you the peace of mind you need to know what is (and more importantly, what isn’t) in your water.

Many places in Utah are known for having particularly hard water with high levels of chlorine. This can leave a particular taste or smell in the water, and nobody wants to drink water that you can taste or smell. Water filters can solve this problem and leave you with clean, clear water throughout your entire home.

What Kind of Water Filter Do I Need?

There are a few different options for filtering the water in your home, but a whole home water filtration system is your best bet. Installing a whole-home residential water filter will ensure that you have clean and fresh water at every tap in your home. The most popular form of home water filtration is through a process called carbon absorption. A carbon filter is extremely effective in removing contaminants and odors, discoloration, and bad tastes in water.
