There are numerous different types of water filtration systems available, and we’re glad to help our clients select and install the system that is best for them.
Why Water Filtration is Important
The water in our area, whether municipal or well-sourced, are known to be relatively safe for everyday use. However, water filtration systems help to remove excess minerals and any foreign particles that may have accumulated in the water due to pipe deterioration, sediment, and more. Whole home water filtration systems are installed near the water main so that every faucet inside the home is covered, as well as the unseen plumbing system as a whole. This helps to protect the piping from scaly buildup caused by hard or mineral-filled water. Water filters can also be installed at a single location, such as a kitchen sink, for single source drinking water consumption.
Types of Water Filtration Systems
There are several different types of water filtration systems available on the market. Each system will serve your home differently which is why it is important to explore your options. No matter what system you choose, water filtration is always a safe choice for you and your family.
Activated Alumina Filter: This type of filter is especially effective for those who wish to remove fluoride from drinking water. Alumina—a substance with the same properties of gemstones— also rids the water of arsenic and selenium.
Activated Charcoal Filter: Charcoal is a common water filter, sometimes used in pitchers, but also available on a larger scale. Charcoal is known to remove volatile organic compounds, chlorine, and other sediments, as well as improve the taste of water.
Ceramic Filters: Ceramic filters are helpful for removing bacteria because of its small pores which allow water to pass through. When coated with silver, these filters can also rid the water of algae and mold. Ceramic filters have a long lifespan.
Reverse Osmosis Filter: By forcing water through a thin membrane, reverse osmosis filters can remove pollutants, parasites, and viruses. Because of their high-quality effectiveness, these filters often cost more but have excellent results.
Ultraviolet Filter: Using UV light, this type of filter kills all living microorganisms quickly and effectively. However, it needs an energy source to run.
