Home Treatment Systems

Get the facts before purchasing a home
treatment system.

Most home water treatment systems will improve the aesthetic qualities of tap water, such as hardness, odor and taste.

The Water Authority doesn't recommend any particular brand or model. However, we provide Consumer Reports® ratings of several brands and types of water filtration systems. Request a copy of the report.

Aesthetics vs. Health

Although home systems can improve the taste of your drinking water, the municipal water supply is treated to meet all state and federal water quality standards. Home water treatment systems may be appropriate for individuals with specific medical conditions; those individuals should discuss options with their physicians. It's important you maintain your home water treatment systems, or you can reduce the quality of your drinking water.
