On the plus side, there are more drinking water systems to choose from than ever before. This allows you to find one that suits your every requirement, including your budget.

Fortunately, as you learn more about the many types of drinking water systems, you’re likely to find that one is better for you than the rest.

Here are some of the most popular options:

1. Reverse Osmosis

As the most common type of drinking water system, this is the best place to start your search. There are many benefits, including the semi-permeable membrane designed to remove toxins and contaminants from your water.

Here are some other benefits:

  • Eliminate unpleasant odors and tastes
  • Eliminate the expense and hassle of bottled water
  • Eliminate any uncertainty regarding water quality

Add in the fact that a reverse osmosis water system is easy to install, and it’s simple to see why it’s a top choice.

2. Carbon Block Filter

Carbon block filters are also a popular choice, as it can be used as a standalone or in combination with reverse osmosis and UV filtration systems.

The carbon block acts as a magnet for impurities found in the water. For example, when used on tap water in your home, it’s successful in removing chlorine and eliminating odors and bad tastes.

Carbon block filters can also filter hard metals, while removing turbidity and protozoan cysts.

3. Ultraviolet Disinfection

Ultraviolet disinfection is a popular choice for killing waterborne bacteria, viruses, and protozoan cysts.

As a natural process, ultraviolet disinfection doesn’t compromise the taste of the water that enters your home.

However, UV disinfection is not the most affordable or reliable system, especially when compared to reverse osmosis, so many people consider it last.


With this information, you should have a better idea of which type of drinking water system is best for you, your home, and your budget.
