Water Treatment Systems
The purpose of water treatment is to remove the contaminates or reduce their concentration so that the water becomes fit for drinking.
There are several kinds of water treatment systems that can be installed:
Whole house/point-of-entry (POE) systems typically treat all or most of the water entering a residence. They are usually installed after the water meter or pressurized storage tank (well water). A water softener is an example of a POE system.
Point-of-use (POU) systems typically treat water at the point of consumption, such as at the kitchen sink, refrigerator or shower head. Some may install inline while others will dispense filtered water through a separate faucet.
