Water Filtration Systems
Need water treatment system installation, repair, or replacement services?
We provide repair and installation services for water treatment, water filtration, and water softener systems. Whether you need a system installed to purify or soften your city tap water or well water, our team of experienced professionals has the knowledge and skills to get the job done right.
Since there is rarely a one size fits all solution to water quality problems, every system should have a thorough water quality analysis done prior to the installation of any treatment equipment. With that in mind, here are some of the water filtration system components that we service and install.
A water softener uses the time tested Ion-exchange process to rid the calcium out of your water and give you nice clean soft water.
With soft water in your house you will notice many of the following benefits:
- Silverware, glassware, mirrors, tiles, cars, and plumbing fixtures will be cleaner and shinier
- Skin and hair will be much softer and smoother
- Reduced soap use will make it easier to clean your housework.
- Less soap and shampoo use because of the lather softened water and soap produces
- Clothes without hard minerals trapped in the fabric will be softer and fabrics will tend to last longer and whites stay whiter.
- Longer life of all water appliances such as coffee machines, ice makers, dishwashers, water heaters and laundry equipment
- Save money on energy costs and damages to appliances caused by scale build up.
- Reduction of some Iron in your water
Whole House Filtration
Whole house water treatment systems provide clean, pure tasting water to every faucet in your household.
We install and service the following system components:
- Did you know that a filter can be installed down in your well where required as a first line of defense again small to large sediment and rust particles? This is a great means to keeping contaminants out of your plumbing system.
- Cartridge filters are probably the most common and short term economical method to protect your tap water from contaminants ranging in size from 0.5 micron to small grains of sand
- Backwashing sediment filters are a great and efficient means of reducing sediment and various contaminants without having to replace cartridges every few months
- Carbon Filters or filters with other specialized media can remove many of the most harmful contaminants found in well or city water, including chlorine, sediment, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), bad tastes and unpleasant odors from water. They generally are not very effective at removing minerals, salts, and dissolved inorganic compounds.
Iron and Manganese Filtration
Iron and manganese can be present in almost any water supply, but is most commonly found in well water. Too much in your water can create problems for your home or business staining fixtures and laundry and even clogging appliances.
In well water, Iron usually occurs in its ferrous state in which the water is clear when poured into a glass etc. Once this ferrous iron is exposed to air, however the iron often changes (oxidizes) into a ferric iron. This is especially true when the water is heated as in a hot water tank etc. When this happens the the water turns red and forms insoluble “rust” particles.
Common treatment for Iron and manganese problems including iron bacteria are:
- Oxidation filters
- Ion exchange(for small amounts of iron)
- Aeration filters
- Ozone injection filters
PH Filters and Acid Neutralizing Filters
Acidic water can be very harmful and corrosive to the plumbing in your house or the metals in your appliances. Water with a PH below 7 is considered acidic and should generally speaking be treated with an acid neutralizing filter. This filter uses naturally occurring minerals to raise the PH to a healthy level. The added benefit of a PH back-washing filter is that it can help remove some Iron and basic sediment.
Reverse Osmosis Filtration
Reverse osmosis filters were originally designed to remove salt and very specific chemicals from water. Some of these include flouride, sodium, total dissolved solids (TDS) or chemicals like arsenic, radium, and nitrites, etc. RO filters are generally best suited for point of use applications and not in whole house applications.
