Water Purifying Systems

When choosing a water purification system, you have a dizzying array of options. Water purification systems are available just for drinking water, for shower water, or for your entire home.

Most drinking water purification systems make use of carbon filters, which remove chemicals and other unwanted compounds from your drinking water and leave in minerals that are good for you. Costs for these systems range from $25 to $550 with a per gallon use cost between 9.6 and 25 cents. Different water purification systems are designed to remove specific elements from the water you drink - popular targets are fluoride and chlorine.

Shower and whole house water purification systems can help reduce the scale that typically builds up in pipes over time, and thus extend the life of your home's plumbing system. Shower water purifying systems cost between $68 and $250 with a per month use cost between $7 and $16. Whole house water purifying systems cost between $800 and $6000 with a per month use cost between $18 and $67.

Specialized water purification systems might cost a bit more, but they pay for themselves over time by providing a longer life for your pipes and better health for you.
