Did you know that there are many of these water filtration systems on the market that actually have a pre-filter? I never knew that they did and was surprised to learn this information.
I never knew that there was a need for these pre-filters and I never knew why it was they wanted them. I can tell you that it is there for a reason and a very good one at that.
When I started looking into these systems, I just figured that it was a single type filter that took the source water and did what it needed to do to get the water purified for drinking for my family.
Now that I have learned about the sand, dirt, and bigger things that are found in water, it makes perfect sense to have one of these things installed on the filter. Removing these things helps prevent the clogging and possible damage to the main filter system. If that were to get damaged then the whole unit would need to get replaced adding to your cost for a system.
Once these larger particles are out of the way, then the main filter can operate as it was made to operate by removing all those toxins and chemicals that are being found in water these days. We want it to work this way so we can have a healthier lifestyle for ourselves and our family.
The need for these pre-filters can be really obvious for someone on well water. There is a greater chance of getting those big particles from well water then from a city water system. It is not much, but enough that it makes sense to definitely want one.
In conclusion, you do want to look for a system that has some kind of pre-filter if you are on a water supply that is supplying your home with a lot of sand and dirt. I am on city water that does not have this issue at all. I recommend clicking here to see what kind of system I am using in my home for my family each day.
