It can be a chore to ascertain whether you actually need a water treatment system or what type of system would be best for you and your family. Consider the factors below in your product selection process if your interest is peeked in having a water filtration system installed in your home by a professional and prompt Fort Worth plumbing company.
Not all products are effective for the same group of contaminants. If you have already identified a specific contaminant that is in your water source that causes you concern then looking at NSF’s contaminant selection guide will help you locate specific products that are certified to reduce the specific contaminants that you want to filter out of your tap water.
Unsure on what type of contaminants are currently present in your water source? You should be able to obtain a copy of a water quality report from your water provider. If this is not available in your area or if you have your own private well, you may want to consider having your water tested. After you have your water source tested then we can help choose the best water filtration system for your home. Looking for a professional Fort Worth plumbing company?

Different types of Water Filtration Systems
Whole-house / Point-of-entry (POE) systems – These typically treat all or most of the water that is entering your home. These systems are typically installed after the water meter or pressurized storage tank. An example of a POE system would be a water softener.
Point-of-use (POU) systems – These systems are more common in homes and you typically find them at the kitchen sink, refrigerator or even the shower head. Some of these systems may be installed inline while others will dispense filtered water from a separate faucet. The following points can assist you in determining which may be best for you:
Personal Water Bottles – consist of a bottle that has its own built-in filter. This bottle may have a push / pull cap or even a straw and are designed for individual usage.
Pitcher or Pour Through Filters – These use gravity to move water through its filter. Most products of this type are pitcher styled and typically will have a lower capacity than other types of water filtration systems.
Faucet Mount Filters – These devices attach to the end of a standard kitchen sink faucet. A diverter then sends water through the system when you are in need of drinking water. These type of filters cannot be used with most specialty faucets, such as those that have pull-out sprayers.
Counter Top Filters – These water filtration systems sit on the countertop next to the kitchen sink and are connected from a small hose to the end of an existing kitchen sink faucet. The filtered water will be dispensed through a spout.
Plumbed-In Systems – These filters are installed via inline and will filter all water that passes through the pipes. These inline systems are intended to be installed only on cold water pipes.
Plumbed-in to Separate Faucet Systems – These are installed similarly to plumbed-in systems. However, the water that is filtered is dispensed through a second smaller faucet rather than the main kitchen faucet.
Refrigerator Filters – Refrigeration filters treat water and ice that is dispensed through your refrigerator and you will commonly find these built-in to your existing refrigerator and you can find aftermarket styles as well if your built-in system is not adequate.
