C&M Plumbers (PlumberFolsom.com) is a very trusted source for filtration/purification systems.

Do we really need to filter our water? Doesn’t the local government do this?

The average adult body includes approximately 60% water (infants can range up to 70%) overall, with certain parts like your brain and heart comprising of around 75% water. This is why it is so important to drink water every day. How much is debatable but an easy equation is: half your body weight in fluid ounces. Each day…

Determination: you need to drink a lot of water.  The next consideration:  what level of quality will you choose for that consumption.     Filtered or unfiltered.

According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG.org), your municipal supplied drinking water may not be perfect.   Studies have shown a number of cancer causing agents in the Sacramento and Folsom treated water, albeit in small amounts.  Disclaimer, these agents may not be in your water and an analysis would need to be conducted to determine to the extent of their involvement.

Level of quality? You decide

Tap water, bottles of water (and their residual plastic), or filtered/purified by a system installed at your home.

If you choose to treat (filter/purify) your water, these are the three main options:

Carbon filter – A filter with granular activated carbon (GAC) is a proven option to remove certain chemicals, particularly organic chemicals, from water. GAC filters also can be used to remove chemicals that give objectionable odors or tastes to water such as hydrogen sulfide (rotten eggs odor) or chlorine.

Reverse osmosis – Reverse osmosis is a water purification process that uses a semi-permeable membrane (synthetic lining) to filter out unwanted molecules and large particles such as contaminants and sediments like chlorine, salt, and dirt from drinking water.

Ion exchange – Ion exchange is a water treatment method where one or more undesirable ionic contaminants are removed from water by exchange with another non-objectionable, or less objectionable ionic substance.

There are several things to consider before making a selection. Overall, carbon is going to be the cheapest option, but it can only filter out so much. Reverse osmosis is generally considered the most effective water filtration method, but it may be expensive and necessitate regular maintenance. Ion exchange filters are commonly used to “soften” your water by removing calcium and magnesium, which can damage your pipes over time. All three of these choices can work together in tandem. They’re available as “point-of-use” solutions such as a filtered water pitcher. They’re also available in a whole-home solution.
