Deciding If You Need a Whole-House Water Filtration System

Are you deciding If You Need a Whole-House Water Filtration System

While Australian tap water is often considered drinkable, it may not be the best water you can have. The water supply may contain pollutants and germs that are harmful to consume. It may also shorten the useful life of gadgets, discolor clothing, and even deplete the natural oils found in hair and skin. If you are concerned about the purity and cleanliness of the water in your home, it’s wise to have your home’s water tested and consider installing a whole-house water filtration system. The question is, how can you determine whether your water is tainted with pollutants and other impurities?

Here are some indicators that a whole house water filtration system is much-needed in your household:

  • The Taste of Water Is Unpleasant


Everyone should be familiar with the taste of pure water. If the water does not taste good, it has likely absorbed contaminants like dirt, pesticides, and magnesium. Some pollutants will significantly impact the taste, enhancing the chlorine or metal flavor associated with tap water.

  • The Water Has a Bad Smell


There is no smell to pure, clear water; it is odorless. It is possible that the cause of any odor is already in the water supply or that it is coming from the pipes. Contaminants may have a sulfurous, chlorine, or even pesticide-like odor. Installing a whole-house machine will eliminate the odors from the water across the whole property. If your water has an unpleasant odor, filter it.

Having dirty water flowing through you and your homes pipes?
  • The Water Isn’t Crystal Clear


The water coming from the faucet should be free of contaminants. Is there anything visible on the surface of the water? Is there a tint of pink to the color of the water? Visible pollutants include any degree of discoloration in the water and the discovery of objects floating about. However, since there are tens of thousands of possible water pollutants, it’s essential to remember that most of them cannot be seen.

  • Your Freshly Washed Clothes Have Strange Stains


Dishwashers and washing machines use tap water to operate. If they aren’t cleaning things as well as they should be, poor water quality may be limiting their effectiveness. Hard water is defined as water with a more significant percentage of magnesium salts and calcium than is typically found in municipal water supplies. It is recommended that the concentration of these chemicals in water not exceed 200 mg per liter.

  • Finding Limescale


Limescale may also be caused by hard water. It may appear as a crusty, white material accumulating around specific home parts, such as faucets, sinks, and bathtubs, and will be difficult to remove. Installing a water softening system in a home helps eliminate contaminants and decreases the likelihood of limescale buildup in the home.

  • You Skin Feels Dry after Taking a Shower


When you come out of the shower, you should not feel like you’re dripping wet. The skin is meant to be hydrated by water. If this happens, it will be due to a problem with the water supply.


Chlorine and hardness compounds, among other contaminants, cause the skin to become dry. That isn’t only a result of taking a shower, however. For example, you may notice that your hands are getting dry after cleaning the dishes. Dry skin may develop into a variety of severe skin problems that can be difficult to treat. 

Getting Sick From bad water
  • Everyone Is Getting Sick

An insufficient water supply may be the cause of your frequent illness. If you have the flu, you may have symptoms such as nausea and vomiting. Using a water filter, you can eliminate hazardous pollutants such as fluoride and germs from your drinking water. You should avoid allowing the water supply to be the source of your family’s sickness. A whole-house water filter may transform your tap water into something that tastes, smells, and performs like bottled mineral water.

Final Thoughts

Any of these conditions may be present in your household’s water supply. It’s conceivable that you and your family or even appliances would benefit from having your water filtered. It is possible to guarantee that all contaminants are eliminated from the drinking water you and your family use by installing a whole-house filtration system.
