What are the benefits of a whole home water filtration system?
While water from a municipal source is treated, it can still expose you to a number of potentially harmful contaminants. Contaminants can be contained in food from cooking, locked in clothing fibers from cleaning, or absorbed through the skin and inhaled through the lungs while showering, so it is extremely important to be protected throughout the entire home.
A whole house system provides you with extra protection in an oasis of pure water at every tap.. Unlike single source water filtration (e.g., under counter systems), whole home water filtration systems are designed to be installed where water enters the home so you can enjoy the health benefits and peace of mind that comes from knowing you’ve got clean water everywhere.
Additionally, The SmartWater Solution has scale inhibiting technology that helps prevent harmful scale build-up in appliances and plumbing fixtures. This will reduce utility costs and extend the useful life of your appliances.
Will I experience any water pressure drop after installing a SmartWater Solution System?
It is not uncommon to experience a slight reduction in water pressure when you install a whole home water filtration system, However, your water pressure should stay maintained at 6-8 gallons per minute (gpm) and The SmartWater Solution is certified to meet this standard.
Is it really better than tap water?

What is the difference between Chloramine and Chlorine?
Chloramines remain active in water longer than chlorine. In other words, if your drinking water must travel a long distance before finally being served by your faucets, chlorine can see its effectiveness as a disinfectant decrease more significantly than chloramine. Chloramine is also reported to produce fewer Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs) than chlorine, including total trihalomethanes (TTHMs) such as chloroform, haloacetic acids (HAA5), chlorite, bromate and more. In other words, while chloramine is at work inactivating bacteria and viruses, and preventing infectious diseases like typhoid fever, hepatitis, and cholera, it is also helping to ensure you are at far less of a risk for exposure to these DBPs.
How does Chloramine affect my family's health and my pet's health?
Chloramine does not pose a significant risk to your health if kept below the MCL or maximum contaminant level. If anything, the use of disinfectants such as chloramine and chlorine have done a great deal of good for public health, as drinking water disinfection helps to protect all of us against sickness and death from waterborne contamination.
How do you remove Chloramine and Chlorine in my Water?

What causes white deposit on showers and bathroom walls?
Water contains many compounds, two of which are calcium and carbonate. Carbonate works as a buffer in water and is thus a very important component to great tasting and healthy water.
When calcium interacts with carbonate present in tap water, a solid substance is formed called lime. This lime is what causes the white deposit on showers and bathroom walls and is commonly known as “lime deposit”. It can be removed by using a specially suited cleaning agent, and prevented to a great extent by investing in a SmartWater Solution.
