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

Drinking water can generally be expected to contain small amounts 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 enhance taste, while others do it due to health concerns.

A whole-home water filter from Hammond Plumbing & Heating can do both, providing fresh water for everything from drinking to cleaning 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 eliminates:

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

Water quality fluctuates by geography 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 find out which chemicals are in your Kitchener home’s drinking water by looking through the Environmental Working Group’s database. About 81 percent of community utility supplies have tested positive for chemicals linked to cancer, database records show.
