What is the difference between a whole house water filtration system and an under-the-counter water filtration system?
The whole house water filtration system filters water for the entire home. If you do not have any special contamination issues, then a whole house carbon filtration system would be recommended for general multi-purpose whole house purification. This system could be used for the water in your bathroom, shower, cleaning, and gardening. An under-the-counter water filtration system is also called a reverse osmosis or RO system. It is the most convenient and effective method for water filtration. RO systems are the same filtration used for bottled water and were first designed to desalinate seawater. They are placed underneath the sink and store purified water to be readily available at all times. This system filters up to 99% of all contaminants that are in water including nitrate, arsenic, chromium, fluoride, radon, and other contaminants that whole house filters cannot remove. This will leave you with the purest water quality possible. They are low maintenance systems that only require annual filter change and are designed to provide purified water for a lifetime. However, it is not practical to be using RO systems throughout the entire home because it would essentially be flushing bottled quality water down the drain. This is where a whole house filtration system can be used in combination to provide filtration for the entire home. If you have a specific problem with your water—for example, there is orange or brown staining, which indicates there is iron in your water—the whole house water filtration and the RO system have two different jobs. An RO system could treat the iron staining issue but only at the point of use drinking faucet. Whole house systems are point of entry systems that are able to protect pipes and appliances to reduce the orange staining throughout the home.
Should I repair or replace my existing appliance?
If you are comparing having your existing machine repaired or replacing it with a machine that is comparable in price with what you paid for your machine 10 or so years ago, you will not be making a valid comparison. The equipment is neither similar in quality nor durability for the same price. If you were to merely replace your existing household appliance with one that costs about what you paid a decade ago, you'll be repairing or junking the new machine every three to four years. You'll either have to pay more up front for a new, high-quality machine that will give you another 10 years of trouble-free operation or you pay less up front for a low-end machine and then pay-as-you-go for repairs.
What should I do if I have a major leak in my home?
In the event of an emergency, turn off your water. If the leak is inside your home or you have a burst pipe you should first turn off your water supply at your main shutoff valve. If you do not have a main shutoff valve, or don't know where it is located, you may turn off your water at your meter in an emergency situation. It is advisable to contact a plumber during such emergencies. If any damage has occurred it is also advisable to contact your insurance company. Do not touch any wet electrical fittings - call an electrician.
