If you are shopping for a water filtration system, you may feel overwhelmed by the number of systems available. The first step in obtaining the filtration you need is to obtain a water quality report. The report identifies any contaminants in your water, and serves as your guide in selecting the appropriate water filtration system required. A Benjamin Franklin Plumber offers quality water filtration systems, and the expertise in providing professional water filtration installation, repair and maintenance.
Installing a water filtration system ensures you are drinking clean, filtered water, a factor that cannot be relied on with bottled water.
Types of Water Filtration Systems
The most common water filtration systems are carbon filtration and reverse osmosis systems. Filtration systems offer a variety of different filtration abilities and the capacities. For example, the removal of chlorine, and other common contaminates can be achieved with a basic system, while it requires a reverse osmosis system to remove heavy metals.
A Benjamin Franklin Plumbing plumber possesses the expertise to assist you in the selection of the water filtration system you need, without you spending hours or days on research.
The carbon filtration system contains one or more carbon filters for affordable and extremely effective removal of a potential wide range of contaminants from the water. Furthermore, carbon filtration removes odors, and unpleasant taste, from the water.
Reverse osmosis is an extremely effective water filtration system in Auburn, AL. The reverse osmosis system uses a semi-permeable membrane to remove contaminants using water pressure. The process removes bacteria, viruses, pesticides, and a number of heavy metals such as lead, asbestos, and others, providing water that is 99% free of contaminants. For homes with a heavy metal or bacteria problem, reverse osmosis is the ideal system.
However, it is important to realize chlorine can damage the membrane and requires pre-treatment with a carbon filter. A system that incorporates both a carbon filtration system offers the best solution, and high quality water treatment for your home.
A water softening system removes the minerals that cause hard water and prevents the related problems. Hard water creates unsightly build-up on fixtures, faucets, showerheads, sediment in water heaters, and spots on dishes in the dishwasher. Softened water also provides softer, and skin, reduces the amount required of detergents and cleaners. In addition, a water softener helps to prevent the damage hard water can cause to the home’s plumbing.
