Some serious, very alarming problems have been reported with New Jersey’s water supply. In 2016, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) reported that Chromium-6, a toxic chemical linked to several different types of cancer, was found in the water system of each of the 21 counties in New Jersey. Other potentially toxic carcinogens, including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), arsenic and lead, have all been detected in the tap water of New Jersey.
So how do you protect the health and safety of your family? Are there differences between bottled water vs tap water? For most families, switching to bottled water is simply not the best answer. Not only is bottled water prohibitively expensive, but there are even some safety questions over where exactly that water comes from. Is bottled water better than tap water? Not always. In some cases, that bottled water is essentially the same product that you get out of your tap.

How Does a Home Water Filtration System Work?
By getting a comprehensive water filtration system installed in your home, you will be able to solve a wide array of problems. This type of filtration system can improve everything from the appearance of the water to the overall quality. Water filtration systems work by removing contaminants, including carcinogens and other damaging toxins, from your water supply. This occurs when your home’s water is run through your specific water line.
A full home water filtration system will complete this task by conducting a complex filtering process in which activated carbon is combined with ion exchange and targeted mechanical filtration to remove the problematic elements from the water. As water filtration systems are extremely advanced, dangerous chemicals and toxins can be removed, while the system will still allow the healthy elements of water to remainand pass through your pipes. Installing a water filtration system for your whole house is advisable for most New Jersey families.
Beyond better drinking water, you will also have better water in your shower (good for your skin) and better water running through your appliances (good for the longevity of these expensive products).
