Whole House System
Whole house water filters are installed at the point-of-entry of the municipal or private water supply into plumbing system of a residence. They ensure that clean and filtered water is available at each and every water point (taps and shower heads) in the house.
Crystal Water uses the best quality whole house water filter systems available. This widely installed system is known affectionately and for obvious reasons as the “big blue filter”. The system offers a water flow rate of up to 8 times faster than standard cheap water filters/housings.
Crystal Water’s “big blue” whole house water filter system uses a twin stage water filtration process. The first stage of the water filtration process is a coarse filter that removes any sediment present in the reticulated or farm water supply. The second stage water filter is an activated carbon filter which will remove chlorine, pesticides, and a range of other harmful chemicals.
By removing chlorine and other harmful chemicals at the point-of-entry, a whole house water filtration systems not only provides cleaner, healthier water, but also better air quality because chlorine is not available to vaporize when heated water is released in the shower etc. Inhaling chlorine vapor is strongly correlated to the onset or aggravation of asthma and bronchitis.
While ”big blue” capably removes a range of impurities from the water supply, Crystal Water still recommends the use of a Reverse Osmosis System for your drinking water, as the whole house system is a water filter not a water purification system.
