Should I buy a home water purifier?

Water produced by the City's Water Treatment Plant meets all, and in most cases is better than rigorous national drinking water quality standards. If not properly maintained, home purification and/or filtration systems can actually cause water quality problems.

A carbon type filter may be beneficial for those sensitive to chlorine but frequent filter changes must be made to prevent bacterial problems from developing. Determining if a water purifier or filter would be beneficial is a personal decision.
