Filtering tap water

Q.    I am interested in installing a whole-house water filtration system due to my health. I am connected to the city water distribution system and the water quality is good. However, I do not have the specifics on the amount of iron, chlorine or other chemicals in the water.
I have seen some filtration systems with in-line filters that need to be changed and another that is guaranteed for life without the need to change filters.

Can you make any recommendations for a manufacturer and model for a permanent home filtration system?

A.    Before you select a filtration system, you should find out what is really needed (some chemicals are essential to our well-being and give water its taste.) A water analysis is the best way to go. You can find an independent specialist under “Water Analysis” in your Yellow Pages or on line. He or she can also recommend the type of system best for your conditions.
