Filtration systems commonly chosen include carbon filtration systems, and reverse osmosis.
Carbon Filtration Systems
Carbon filtration systems are the most commonly purchased water filtration systems in Arlington. That is due to this system’s ability to meet the household needs of most homes. It is extremely effective in providing clean, clear, great tasting water.
Carbon filtration systems are available with granular activated carbon filters, and block filters. Granular activated charcoal is electro-positively charged, and attracts contaminates holding them to its surface.
Carbon block filters possesses a larger surface area for holding contaminates, and as a result is more effective than activated carbon filtration. Both types provide clear, great tasting, and clean water. Both types of carbon filtration are extremely effective in removing chemicals, herbicides, pesticides, and others. However, neither type can remove heavy metals or the dissolved minerals that form hard water. Removing heavy metals requires a reverse osmosis system, while removal of dissolved minerals requires a water softener.
Reverse osmosis is among the most effective types of water filtration systems in Arlington. It uses pressure and a semi-permeable membrane to filter out numerous contaminates from the water, including the following:
• Chemical contaminants
• Heavy metal contamination
• Biological contaminates
• Toxins such as radium and asbestos
Reverse osmosis provides 99% contaminate free water, although, as previously stated it is unable to remove dissolved minerals.
However, the reverse osmosis system requires a carbon filter to remove chlorine and/or chloramine to prevent the water treatment chemicals from damaging the reverse osmosis membrane. A number of today’s systems contain both, providing the cleanest, safest water possible, without damaging the reverse osmosis system’s membrane.
Only a water softener can remove dissolved minerals from hard water. The term hard water indicates minerals are present in the water. These minerals cause damage to water heaters, spot dishes, and can damage plumbing. Water softeners reduce excess calcium and magnesium in the water.
There are numerous kinds of water treatment products available for residential use. The following are some of the most common, not including filters such as pitchers:
• Whole house water filtration systems treat the water entering a home. Also called a Point of Entry (POE) system, the POE can include a water filtration system in Arlington or a water softener.
• Point-of-use (POU) water filtration systems treat water in a single location, such as the refrigerator. The following brief overview of common POU water filtration system in Arlington can help you determine the best solution for your needs:
• Faucet mounted filters attach to the end of a standard kitchen sink faucet and provide the selection of filtered or non-filtered water.
