Hi! I’m Jamie Thorn, licensed plumber by day, Water Filter Answers expert by night, and a full-time father of three and undeserving husband to one.
Throughout my life I’ve been blessed with so many wonderful gifts that I’ve lost track of, but taking up plumbing 30+ years ago was maybe one the best decisions I’ve ever made. It is a tough job but equally rewarding. There’s nothing like putting a big smile on a client’s face after a long day of doing all the dirty work for them and helping restore some lost peace of mind.
I was born in 1965 in a small town in Illinois and learned the craft in Milwaukee from a handful of old-school plumbing professionals I’ll be eternally grateful to for having the patience to teach me all the ins and outs of home plumbing systems and instilling me with enough confidence to set me up for career success.
Meanwhile, I’ve grown more and more interested in drinking water security and water filtration systems amid increased concerns over fracking’s disastrous and often underreported impact on the environment and day-to-day pollution threats.
Water Filter Answers is a side project with an emphasis on education, designed to inform site visitors on the benefits of water filters by taking the time to debunk the myths, explain the science, and break down the terminology.
Tap water can be made safer via various methods, but not every one of them is failproof, which is an important detail to keep in mind if you happen to have a family with small kids or loved ones prone to allergies.
I’ve also reviewed several water filtration products that either I, my collaborators, or my clients enjoy, and the Water Filter Answers team strives to offer the site’s loyal readership constant access to informative articles on water safety, water quality, and pollution.
My team strongly believes that water pollution is not a death sentence as it can be counteracted with the right information and putting knowledge into practice. I hope that you enjoy our variety of guides and reviews of home water filtration systems, sump pumps, water softeners, and the like.
And if you have any questions, input, or feedback, don’t hesitate to tap Water Filter Answers’ commenting platform or get in contact with us.
