Just an observation, as I've tried to educate myself about home filtration systems, I have found a surprising number of sites that try to appear unbiased, but with a little reading can be seen to be favoring filters over all other system types. It may be that filters are better for certain applications. But the fact that they're being sold as 'all-things-to-all-people' makes me suspicious. The fact that at least a couple of sites (usually .org sites) appear to be hiding their identity also makes me suspicious. It also makes me wonder what so good about the non-filter systems that has the filter folks so worried.
8p this past saturday this dude in his mid 20s came to my door selling something similar. he led on that he represented (was subbed for) the utility company. he kept insisting that he needed to see my water shutoff valve and he had something that would save me a lot of money (more money than i actually pay in water consumption!). i kept letting him talk just to shoot down his bullshit circle talking, it was more amusing for me to troll his nonsense and keep him in the cold while wasting both our times. definitely didn't let him in. interesting how others also agree this was bullshit, yet sad to know others fall for this.
Safe, clean drinking water is one of the most important health concerns for families. Even in the United States, it is possible to get municipal drinking water that still has contaminants and the current direction of the EPA isn't helping and even though the water may technically meet the minimum safety requirements of the federal government, many contaminants are never tested for. At BestFilters.com, customers will find the water filters that they need to ensure they have safe and clean water. Drinking water can be contaminated from a number of sources and with our water infrastructure problems, the water that leaves the water treatment facility may not be the same water at your tap. Ask the folks in Flint MI. Chemical pesticides and other ground water pollutants can seep into the municipal water supply and find their way into the homes of residents. Over time, this can lead to serious health problems and lower the quality of life. The water filters at BestFilters.com keep most of these contaminants away from homeowners.
