The cost of a home water filtration system varies considerably. According to HomeAdvisor, the national average is $2,050, with a range of $1,044 to $3,266.¹ However, HomeGuide estimates a whole home system can cost as much as $5,400 on average.² We’ll explain the factors that impact the total cost and some reasons why you should consider having NexGen install a home water filtration system for you.
There are many types and sizes of water filtration systems. The type of system is only one cost factor but is perhaps the most significant one, so that’s where we’ll start.
A water filtration system can serve a single fixture or purify the water supply for your entire home. The types of systems available include:
As mentioned, a reverse osmosis system is the costliest but removes most metals, chemicals, and pathogens. Even for an under-sink unit, you may pay up to $950. Whole-house or under-sink UV water filtration units (which kill bacteria and viruses) can cost up to $1,500. Whole-house water softeners cost up to $2,500, and whole-house chemical injectors cost up to $1,500. A full water distillation system can be up to $3,600.²
The labor to install a whole-house system can cost from $200 to $600. In contrast, an under-sink filtration system ranges from $120 to $300.² A plumber, manufacturer-certified specialist, water-treatment installation company, or home improvement store contractor can install a home water filtration system. The cost of labor varies based on the installer’s rate and your geographical location.
Aside from the type of system, treatment method, and labor, other factors that influence the cost of a home water filtration system include:
Water filtration systems have many benefits. By investing in one, you’ll have safer drinking water, especially if you have an older home with lead pipes or use well water. A filtration system can remove chlorine and minerals, so tap water tastes better. It can also address hard water so there are fewer stains on dishes, clothes, and fixtures. Pipes and appliances are protected against mineral buildup and impurities, so they can last longer.
