A couple years ago, a luxury hotel had attempted to filter their entire water supply. Their desire was to provide their guest with the best experience possible. While with good intentions this also gave way to some negative consequences. Understanding what to remove and what to leave in your water supply can affect not just the taste and odor of the water, but the safety of the water as well. This particular facility had wanted to remove all the chlorine from their incoming water supply and made the decision to utilize a whole building system to do so. The side effect of removing all antibacterial properties in a large water system is the introduction of bacterial growth after the point of entry system. This bacteria growth will occur in the piping after the filtration system and will cause exposure to the user’s downstream. What Filter Pure would have recommended was utilizing a mechanical filtered system with Ultraviolet at the point of entry. This would eliminate any possible contaminants entry into the building water supply. It also maintains the appropriate levels of disinfectant to ensure pipes are not permitting bacterial growth. For taste and odor concern, these should always be handled at the point of use with a system similar to the Insurice Single PF-i2000 system (EV9324-21). We recommend Everpure for all water point of use systems. Every location has different water quality concerns that require direct and special attention.
