Congratulations, you’ve completed the Water Wizard!
Here is your custom water filtration recommendation:
First, you told us you have municipal water. Municipal water is most commonly treated with chlorine or chloramines, and sometimes a combination of both. You want to make sure you get a water filtration system that will filter both chlorine and chloramines. To start, your filtration system should address:
Other Heavy Metals
Whole House Filtration
You told us you have 2.5 baths or less. Be sure to get a whole house water filtration system that will accommodate your size home. The PurHome X-5 is just right for your needs.
If you have more than 4-5 people in your family or require a higher capacity model, you may wish to upgrade to the PurHome X-1000.
The PurHome X-5 addresses:
Other Heavy Metals
- Homes up to 2.5 baths, 2,500 square feet
- Filters Chlorine, Chloramines, Heavy Metals, and VOCs
- Environmentally Friendly: No Electricity Required, No Backwash
The PurHome X-5 is a High Capacity Whole House Water Filtration System. It begins with an amazing 0.35 micron pre-filter for the finest filtration and crystal clear water (a human hair is about 100 – 200 micron).
Next, the water passes through NSF Certified KDF-55 media, a combination of two dissimilar alloys, to remove chlorine over 99%, as well as filter heavy metals like lead, mercury, copper, nickel, chromium, and other dissolved metals, and extends the life of the carbon stage. KDF-55 also provides a bacteriostatic environment.
The final stage is our high capacity catalytic centaur carbon that is designed to remove chlorine, chloramines, VOC’s, SOC’s, and THM’s. This combined filtration provides great tasting water at every tap.
Most other whole house systems use only carbon. Carbon is a “must” in water filtration, however, it can be a breeding ground for bacteria over time. KDF-55 inhibits bacterial growth and can increase carbon life by as much as 300%.
Chloramines in your Water?
Most municipalities treat water with chlorine, but some cities are now beginning to use chloramines as a disinfectant. It is a combination of chlorine with ammonia. The effects of chloramines have not been widely studied yet, but it is considered no less dangerous than chlorine to your health. We now include chloramine removal media at no extra charge. Ask the competition if their system does.
This whole house water filter is easy to install by a licensed plumber or a handy homeowner. Watch a brief video installation on the videos tab (on the PurHome X-5 product page).
