The Benefits of Installing a Whole-House Water Filter System

Ideally, we wouldn’t need to think twice about the water that comes from our faucets, showerheads, and washing machines—but in reality, this water can contain many contaminants that can harm our health.

 A study by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) shows that over 320 toxic substances, including arsenic, lead, and pesticides, have been found in tap water across the U.S. since 2019. Researchers have linked these chemicals to cancer, congenital disabilities, and impaired brain development, noting that the sources of contaminated water may include:


  • Extreme weather events
  • Naturally occurring contaminants
  • Urbanization
  • Agricultural practices
  • Damaged water infrastructure


If you’re looking for a way to protect yourself and your family from contaminated water, you’ve probably considered installing a whole-house water filtration system.

 Read on to learn how these innovative systems work, what their benefits are, and where to find market-leading Pentair whole-house water filter systems that are uniquely suited to your home.

 What is a Whole-House Water Filtration System?

 A whole-house water filter acts as a point of entry gateway for your home’s tap water, filtering your water to remove contaminants and ensuring that only fresh, clean water flows through your faucets and appliances.

 Depending on the source of your tap water, you may want to install a whole-house water filtration system to:

  • Reduce water hardness
  • Remove sediment
  • Remove contaminants
  • Eliminate unpleasant taste or odor
  • Avoid red/orange stains in your sink, tub, or toilet

 At Modern Homes Supply, we provide a variety of Pentair whole-house water filter systems ranging from those that reduce sulphuric water contaminants to ones that reduce the appearance of red/orange stains while treating sediment.

 Whole-house water filtration systems vary in their complexity and use, but regardless of what your primary concerns are, we’ll help you find a whole-house water system that provides a long-lasting solution.

 The Top Benefits of a Whole-House Water Filtration System

 No matter where your water comes from, there are countless opportunities for contaminants to enter your home’s water supply. Even if your water is free from contaminants, minerals can also affect the taste and smell of your water while degrading your appliances.

 Whether you’re concerned about your family’s health or want to avoid expensive plumbing issues, a whole-house water filtration system is a comprehensive solution with countless long-lasting benefits. These include:

 Enjoy Clean, Safe Water Throughout Your Home

 While a pitcher filter or under-the-sink filter can help you clean a small amount of water, these systems aren’t adequately comprehensive or robust to provide safe water throughout your home.

 While access to safe drinking water is the primary concern for many families, you can still be exposed to contaminants through baths, showers, dishwashing, and washing your clothes. A whole-house water filtration system protects your overall water supply, ensuring every drop of water in your home is free from unwanted minerals such as lead, arsenic, and nitrate.

 Extend the Longevity of Appliances and Plumbing

 Have you ever noticed your pipes turning red or orange? This is due to iron stains caused by heavy metal contaminants -and it’s not simply an aesthetic concern!

 Over time, specific contaminants can corrode your pipes and appliances, such as your dishwasher, washing machine, and water heaters. By ensuring your water source is contaminant-free, you can extend the lifespan of your pipes and appliances, saving unnecessary spending in the long term.

 Save Money While Protecting the Environment

 The costs can quickly add up if you rely on bottled water to ensure your family has access to clean drinking water. Over the years, bottled water may cost you more than the upfront expense of a water filtration system.

 In addition, the plastic from bottled water is likely to end up in landfills—so not only will you be protecting your wallet, you’ll be protecting the planet too.

 Enjoy Ultimate Peace of Mind

 A whole-house water filtration system can help protect you and your family from various health issues, but did you know that it can also protect you in the event of natural disasters and infrastructure degradation?

 If your local water supply ever becomes contaminated or a natural disaster strikes your area, you can rest assured that your family will continue to have access to safe, clean water.

 Our Best-Selling Whole-House Water Filtration Systems

 Pentair Water Solutions Salt Softener & Carbon Combo System PAC7

 One of the most common water-related issues in the U.S. is hard water, which affects 90% of homes in the country. But what exactly is hard water and how do we solve the problem effectively?

 When water contains high levels of calcium, magnesium, bicarbonates, and sulfates, it’s referred to as “hard.” It can lead to mineral build-up on pipes and plumbing while reducing the efficacy of soaps and detergents in washing machines. Hard water can also cause:

  • Itchy and dry skin
  • Dry hair
  • Soap scum in the shower
  • Chalky dishes and glassware
  • Stiff laundry despite using fabric softener

 The Pentair Water Solutions Salt Softener & Carbon Combo System PAC7 is a carbon filter and whole-house water softener combination system that minimizes the effects of hard water build-up, while reducing the number of chemicals that flow to your home from your local water supply.

 The PAC4 is ideal for homes with 1 - 3 bathrooms, while the PAC7 model is suited to homes with 4 - 6 bathrooms. We recommend professional installation by an expert for optimum results.
