Contact us now for a free water test to determine how our systems can remove contaminants and impurities from your home’s water. There are many different ways to condition and treat water to improve quality. This all depends on the types of contaminants in your water, which is why we conduct a thorough water quality test before recommending water conditioning equipment. Generally, they fall into two categories: water softening and water filtration. We offer both to provide solutions to improve your water quality.
Water Softening Systems
Water softening removes hard minerals from water like calcium and magnesium. Hard water minerals are responsible for many issues for your family, including less effective soap and detergents, limescale, and mineral deposits that shorten the lifespan of your plumbing, plumbing fixtures, and appliances. Soft water is also better for your skin, hair, and clothes.
Our water softening systems remove minerals through an ion exchange process. This means that it uses sodium or potassium to attract hard water minerals and exchange the hard minerals in the water for the sodium or potassium, which is much better for your home.
Water Filtration Systems
Water filtration systems are a type of water conditioning that relies on filtering contaminants out of the water. These can address many water quality problems, including impurities like sand, dirt, and chemical contaminants like chlorine. If you have major water quality issues, then you may need a water filtration system instead of a water softener for healthy water. There are two basic types of water filtration systems that we offer for your home: reverse osmosis and carbon adsorption.
Reverse Osmosis Point of Use Water Treatment
We generally recommend reverse osmosis systems as point of use water treatment solutions. This means we install them right at the fixture, like your kitchen sink, to filter the water from contaminants so it’s healthy to drink.
Reverse osmosis systems use a special membrane to purify the water by removing particles and molecules of contaminants. These contaminants include chlorine, salt, sediment, and microbes like bacteria and viruses. They’re designed to provide you with purified water for a lifetime and remove up to 99.9% of contaminants.
Whole House Water Filtration with Carbon Adsorption
Whole house water filtration systems from our team usually use carbon adsorption to remove potentially harmful impurities that lower water quality. Carbon water conditioners use activated carbon, which acts like a sponge for contaminants and impurities in the water because it has naturally magnetic properties. The filter then adsorbs these impurities to remove them from the water entering your home’s pipes. These systems can remove contaminants like sediments, heavy metals, chlorine, and bacteria.
Our team is here to help you identify the contaminants in your home’s water and find the right water conditioning solution for your needs.
