Detroit’s Finest Whole Home Water Filters
Stop water problems before they enter your home with advanced whole-home water filters.
The surface water sources that primarily supply the Detroit and Ann Arbor areas can have unpleasant tastes or smells like sulfur, excess chlorine, or potentially unsafe contaminants like lead and arsenic. Some of these contaminants come from the environment, while others make their way into lakes and rivers as a result of runoff from agricultural and industrial activities. Other contaminants, like lead, can be absorbed into water as it travels through plumbing.
You can often tell if your water is contaminated if you experience any of these issues with your tap water:
- Cloudy or discolored water
- Soap scum and residue
- Unpleasant water smells like chlorine
- Metallic taste or aftertaste
- Rust colored or blue/green stains or spots
- Stains on laundry, sinks, tubs and more
Water Quality in Detroit
What you can’t tell just from looking or smelling however, is the kind of contaminants that may be present in your water. And there are several potentially harmful contaminants that can’t be detected by sight, smell, or even taste. Lead, arsenic, and chromium-6 are a few that can pass undetected in the water supply because they generally don’t come with obvious signs.
Since surface water can be prone to more contamination than other sources of water, cities often use a variety of treatment chemicals to ensure that it’s safe to drink and use. These treatment chemicals, commonly chlorine, can leave water smelling or tasting unpleasant. In other areas of Detroit, water can experience more serious issues if the infrastructure is aging or plumbing hasn’t been updated — this can lead to corrosion which is often how potentially harmful contaminants, like lead, get into the water.

2. What is filtered water?
Filtered water typically refers to water that has gone through a filtration process to reduce the amount of iron, hydrogen sulfide, aesthetic chlorine taste or odor, as well as microorganisms such as cryptosporidium and giardia.
Water filtration involves separating mineral particles, like particulates, iron, hydrogen sulfide, or organic matter, from the water molecule (H2O). By passing water through a "filter bed," or "media bed," these granular particles are trapped, allowing the cleaner water to pass through.
