Whole House Water Filtration: Combat Forever Chemicals | Manariti Plumbing

Why Whole House Water Filtration is Essential

In today’s increasingly polluted world, ensuring the purity of our household water supply is more critical than ever. One of the most effective ways to protect your home from contaminants is through a whole house water filtration system. This system filters all the water entering your home, providing clean and safe water from every tap and fixture.

Understanding Forever Chemicals

One significant concern in water safety is the presence of “forever chemicals” or PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances). These are synthetic chemicals found in various products, from non-stick cookware to firefighting foams. They are termed “forever chemicals” because they do not break down in the environment, accumulating over time and posing serious health risks.

Health Risks of Forever Chemicals

PFAS have been linked to numerous health issues, including:

  • Cancer
  • Liver damage
  • Thyroid disease
  • Developmental issues in children
  • Immune system effects

Given these risks, reducing exposure to PFAS is crucial for maintaining good health.

Australia vs. America: A Comparative Look

Regulatory Differences

There is a stark contrast between Australia and the United States in regulating and addressing forever chemicals. The US has stringent guidelines and is actively working to limit PFAS in water supplies. Many states have set maximum contaminant levels for PFAS, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is continually updating its regulations.

In Australia, however, the regulatory landscape is less stringent. While some progress has been made, Australia lags behind in enforcing strict limits on PFAS levels in water. This discrepancy means Australians might be at a higher risk of exposure to these harmful chemicals.

Time to Catch Up

Australia must adopt more rigorous standards and regulations to protect its citizens from forever chemicals. Implementing whole house water filtration systems is a proactive measure homeowners can take to ensure their water is safe, regardless of regulatory differences.

Benefits of Whole House Water Filtration

Comprehensive Protection

A whole house water filtration system provides complete protection from contaminants, including PFAS. It ensures that every drop of water used in your home, whether for drinking, cooking, or bathing, is free from harmful substances.

Improved Water Quality

These systems significantly improve the taste, smell, and overall quality of your water. By removing chemicals, sediments, and other impurities, you can enjoy cleaner, fresher water throughout your home.

Health Benefits

By filtering out harmful contaminants, a whole house water filtration system helps protect your family’s health. It reduces the risk of various health issues associated with chemical exposure and provides peace of mind knowing your water is safe.


While the initial investment might seem significant, a whole house water filtration system can save you money in the long run. It reduces the need for bottled water, lowers maintenance costs for appliances by preventing scale build-up, and can even enhance the lifespan of your plumbing system.
