Clean water is vital — and it’s something many people take for granted. In homes and businesses, we expect useable, drinkable water to come out of the taps. However, often it is dirty, contaminated water that is sent down the drains. Soaps, detergents, foods, waste and a host of other materials find their way into our water. These substances must eventually be filtered out in order for water to be usable again. In this guide, we discuss the process of water filtration. At the guide’s end, we also provide tips and tricks for improving water quality on your property and in your community.
