Point of Entry Filtration System
A point-of-entry filtration system is installed at your water main. This filters all water as it enters your home. This is a great option for anyone that wants to ensure all the water in their home is pure.
There are several types of point-of-entry systems, including ultraviolet disinfection or reverse osmosis. The best one for you and your family depends on your needs and preferences.

Point of Use Filtration System
A point-of-use filtration system is installed on the fixture where you want the water filtered.

If you only want to filter water used for drinking and cooking, the filter can be installed on that fixture.
