Whole House Well Water Filter Systems

I have been seeing more and more reports as of late about home wells becoming contaminated and in some cases completely drying up around our area. The drought has been taking its toll for sure, and the news of the contamination just supports my feelings that even if you have a well, everyone needs to have Whole House Well Water Filter Systems in their homes.

What happened to well water being cleaner than city water?

There was a time when well water was by far the superior source of water but those days are going away at a very quick rate. With the state of our ground water today I personally would not drink any unfiltered water from whatever the source may be. I would really recommend a system that filters well water for the same reasons as I would for city water, it is just not clean anymore!

The only way to make sure you are really getting clean fresh water is by using a complete multi-stage home water filter system, period. This is just where our world is at today, and I am hoping maybe with everyone practicing good water habits we can change this in the future.

What can we do?

There are many things we can do to start reversing the process. It takes time and it take vigilant effort to make changes, but if we do not we may end up destroying the very liquid that keeps us alive.

  • Never leave the water tap on unless you are using the water coming out of it.
  • You can filter rain water through a barrel and a pile of sand and let it flow back into the ground as a way to help clean up our water supply.
  • Change your shower heads and faucet filters to water saving units that will save hundreds of gallons of water for you. It is amazing how much you can save here.
  • Water saver toilets that hold less water.
  • Full loads of dishes in the dishwasher.
  • Full loads when washing clothes.
  • Installing home water filter systems.
  • Just a basic mindset of being conservative will go a long ways.

Can we really change this trend?

If we follow the above rules, and you can think of more I am sure, we can put a huge dent in the damage we have been doing to our water systems. Why not sit down and think of about 5 things you can do to help clean up our water supply, and post them in the comment section below. I would love for us to share all of the ideas we can come up with to help turn thing thing around!

Thanks for sharing water notes! Water systems for your personal water supply make sense. For now, I'm only consuming water passed through my two tiny water bottle filters. Need to bootstrap my life back before getting more;)

All great conservation ideas Shawn, but one comes back to me from the hippie days. "Save water, shower with a friend."

Great article Shawn!! From living in rural areas of the Southeast I 'm very familiar with well systems and ground water, dry wells and worse...a contaminated water supply. After some animals got sick we shut down one well and went to another. The guy putting the well in advised us to put in a purification system. It cost a bit more, but money well spent...sort of like 'Life' insurance....as far as the 5 ideas go...I'm working on a gardening watering system now where I can use the run off from any rain to water my garden.

What an interesting article! I learned a lot. I used to work and live on a Show Horse & Breeding Farm. We had a condemned well and it was difficult. Had to buy bottled water and the well water changed everybody's hair color.
