The Benefits of Owning a Point-of-Use House Water Purification System
A point-of-use, or POU, house water purification system is one that is designed to connect directly to your kitchen faucet. POU drinking water systems come in many varieties. Some use reverse osmosis, while others use activated carbon filters or some other type of filtration technology. Common to all POU systems is the capability to filter or purify water right at the point where it will be consumed – hence the name, point of use. Another type of drinking water system is the point-of-entry, or POE, filter. POE filters are designed to treat all of the water that enters a home or building, and are also commonly referred to as “whole house water filters” or “whole house filtration systems.”
Thanks to advances in manufacturing methods and product design, today’s POU systems are remarkably effective at producing clean, great-tasting water for drinking and cooking. While it’s true that no POU system can remove all foreign substances, many come close, producing water that is as good as, if not better than, bottled water. The primary benefit of owning a POU system is having 24/7 access to an unlimited supply of professionally filtered water. Bottled water, much of which is just purified municipal water anyway*, will no longer have to be a part of your family’s grocery budget. Day or night, you will be able to quench your thirst with ultra-clean filtered water whenever you want to. Coffee, tea, Kool-Aid, ice cubes, homemade soups – all will taste distinctly better.
