Keep your home healthy and your family safe with quality water filtration

Whole House Water Filter

Ensure that your family enjoys clean water by using a whole house water filter.

We like to think that the water we drink is safe. Unfortunately that is often not true. Many sources of water in the U.S. from lakes to wells contain contaminants. Some of these contaminants can be man-made while others are naturally occurring. However, all can be potentially hazardous to you, your family, and your guests.

Many homeowners attempt to use store bought filters in order to clean their water and make it healthy to drink. However, store bought filters are often far too weak to catch all contaminants and can only filter water from one source. A whole home water filter doesn't have this problem as it filters all the water that comes into your home. Whole home water filters are also far more effective at removing all contaminants.

What does a whole house water filter do?

Unwanted contaminants in your water can include:

  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Parasites
  • Pesticides
  • Toxic metals
  • Radioactive elements
  • And more!

Whole house water filters are directly connected to your water line. This means that all the water entering your home will have to pass through the filter. Once the water passes through the filter it is carefully scrubbed for contaminants. The exact contaminants vary based on the design of the water filter. Only once the contaminants are removed does the whole house water filter route the water to the various appliances and faucets in your home.

This filtration process can provide you with a variety of benefits including:

  • Clean filtered water throughout the home
  • Healthier showers & baths
  • Brighter and longer lasting clothing
  • Healthier skin

Water filtration systems & features

Anion & mixed bed systems

Anion and mixed bed systems are similar to water softeners and, in some cases, are water softeners. These media utilize the ion exchange process to remove harmful and undesirable contaminants like the ones listed below. These systems are great because they are self-regenerating and do not require potentially costly and frequent media change-outs.

Anion and mixed bed water filters remove:

  • Uranium
  • Arsenic
  • Tannins
Absorption systems

Absorption media systems absorb water contaminants. There are many types of absorption media and applications and some of these systems treat:

  • Arsenic
  • Uranium
Carbon filtration media

Carbon is an excellent filtration media. It comes in multiple forms and removes numerous contaminants like sulfur, chlorine, and PFOA/PFOS. Carbon is used in filter cartridges of all shapes in sizes and as a stand-alone media in backwashing and aeration filters.

PIONEER™ provides a 0.5-micron nominal filtration level to remove particulate and soluble lead from your drinking water. Soluble lead is invisible, odorless, tasteless, and needs chemicals to remove it from the water. Particulate lead is like a tiny grain of sand that needs to be removed physically from the water. The PIONEER™ POE filter provides both forms of lead contamination from the whole house in a single filter.

PIONEER™ water filtration systems successfully remove PFOA and PFOS chemicals and are installed where the water line enters your property. They test this system and certify it by a third party, as required in the NSF/ANSI P473 standard for PFOA/PFOS, along with the NSF/ANSI 53 standard for reducing lead and cyst.

Benefits of PIONEER™ water filtration systems:

  • PIONEER™ filter is specifically engineered to physically remove and filter heavy metal and lead particles from water which is often found as a result of corroded lead pipes.
  • The POE filter was tested for standard and peak flow rates for both forms of lead. The Water Quality Platinum Seal and UPC shield demonstrate the certification by IAPMO R&T.
  • The binders are designed to chemically react with soluble lead to create an ionic bond, kinetically removing lead from the water.
  • Removes and/or reduces PFOA/PFOS, chlorine, chloramine, and other harmful contaminants, including >99.95% of Cysts
