Add a Whole-Home Water Filter for Better Tasting, Healthier Tap Water in Kitchener

Drinking water can usually be expected to contain bits of contaminants, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Close to 51 percent of Canadian households use at least one method to purify drinking water, according to a governmental study. Some purify their water to improve taste, while others do it because of health concerns.

A whole-home water filter from Hammond Plumbing & Heating can do both, providing fresh water for everything from drinking to bathing to washing clothes.

Not only is this filter crucial for better-tasting, odorless water, it’s imperative for your family’s well-being.

Know What’s in Your Drinking Water

A whole-home water filter removes particles you drink or that your skin absorbs.

It pulls out:

  • Heavy metals
  • Chlorine
  • Lead
  • Industrial chemicals
  • Trihalomethanes, many of which are thought to be carcinogenic

Water quality changes by location and is influenced by the processing your water undergoes. It’s also affected by construction, mining and agriculture, as well as mineral deposits groundwater travels through.

You can learn which toxins are in your Kitchener home’s drinking water by browsing the Environmental Working Group’s database. About 81 percent of community utility supplies have tested positive for chemicals linked to cancer, database records show.
