If you are in the market for a water filtration system for your home, you have many options available. The major thing that you have to decide up front is whether you want a system that filters drinking water at the source of your tap, or if you want a system that will provide quality water to your entire house. When you stop to consider that a great majority of water is absorbed not through drinking, but through the skin, it may become more obvious that a whole house filter is a better way to ensure that the water in your home is pure enough for optimal health.
A whole house filter is different from a drinking water filtration system because it filters water at the point of entry into your home. They work through a different process, and supply water to your home that is pure at every faucet and shower. The advantages to a whole house filter are not only obvious for your health, they help to extend the life of your plumbing fixtures and appliances, especially when you live in a region that has hard water.
The Premium Rhino Whole House Filter + SimplySoft Whole House Descaler Aqu is a system that is hooked up at the water supply line in your home. It is a whole house filter that is capable of removing 97% of chlorine for a maximum of one million gallons. It also works to remove scale from your water of up to 99.6%. The best part about this system is that it does the same job as your water softener, but it doesn’t require salt, or backwashing. You can say goodbye to hauling salt up and down the stairs, this works completely differently and without the need for salt ions. It also stands alone, and works without electricity, which is a nice break on your utility bills.
Everything you need is included in the kit to install the unit by yourself, or have a professional do it. This system has all the advantages of a water softener filtration system without all the hassle. Customers who bought this unit absolutely rave about the efficiency that it works on, and how well it removes the minerals from their water.
So what are the disadvantages?
If you are looking to get pure water, the problem with contamination in your water may have may have nothing to do with scale or sediment. For many, it is the fine contaminants which are not solved by this type of filter, that are really harmful to the drinking water. This whole house water filtration system works similar to a water softener, but it doesn’t address the concerns put forth by those who are looking to have microbes such as pesticides and other contaminants removed from the water. Sure, it is nice to not have to haul around the salt bags, backwash it, or hook it up to electricity, but with a price tag of close to $2000 is really necessarily worth it? Another complaint is that on top of the high price tag, you have to call in a professional plumber for installation, and we all know how inexpensive a plumbing call can be.
The Premium Rhino Whole House Filter is an excellent unit for those who are live in areas where hard water is a problem. It works excellently to remove sediment, scale and other impurities from the water without all the hassles that you would get from a water softener. The problem is that it isn’t a water filtration system that is going to solve your problem if you are concerned about the quality of your drinking water, or the contamination of fine molecules. The best solution is to install a whole house filter, such as this one, and then to purchase an additional filtration system for drinking water purity, but at almost $2000 plus plumbing fees, who has that type of budget? For the money I think that I may consider bringing salt into the house, or paying to have someone deliver it, hook it up to electricity, have the same company
