Although the EPA claims that 90% of the water in public systems in the US meets the required standards, it is a good idea to install a whole house UV Light Water Filtration System to guarantee safe drinking water.
The contaminants present in the water depends on its source. If you use municipal city water, the most popular contaminants are chlorine, hardness minerals, and chemicals. However, municipal city water can also be infected with bacteria and/or parasites. Thus, they will tell their customers to boil their water after contamination has been detected. For a private well, the contaminants of concern would be sediments, hardness minerals, and bacteria, viruses and parasites.
The very best whole house system for safe drinking water is a UV Light Filtration System. A UV Light kills ALL bacteria like Ecoli and Listeria and all viruses. UV Light will also render microorganisms impotent, thus making them harmless when consumed. A UV Light System is also very effective at killing protozoans like Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
