Whole House Water Filter?
The average household uses about half of all the water consumed for flushing toilets. It seems to me that purifying water to top level drinking quality to then flush it down the john is a shocking waste of resources.
Obviously water used for cooking and drinking should be top quality, filtered and purified to the max. This can be achieved with a two stage fine particle + activated carbon filter in the line to the kitchen sink. Or put in a reverse osmosis unit if the incoming supply is really bad.
For showering, bathing, clothes washing and general usage, water from the well or town supply is almost certainly safe. Obviously, well water should be tested and treated accordingly.

I also have used an Aquasana whole-house filter, and been very happy with it.
City water is purified by adding chemicals to kill bacteria and viruses. These chemicals such as chlorine or chloramines remain in water and create a serious health hazard. Whole House Water Filtration systems are capable of treating chlorine and chloramines and provide us the safe drinking water.

If you’re thinking about a filter, it’s probably good to start with an independent water test. Anything that a salesperson shows you is going to be geared toward selling you equipment rather than educating you on what’s actually happening with your water. I’ve recently used simplewater.us and been happy with them. I showed the filtration guy my test results and said what issues we wanted to address and that we’d test again after the system was installed.
