Water Filtration System Arlington
If you’re not aware of what’s in your water, you may want to find out. For example, when coliform bacteria are present in water, your supplier may increase the amount of chlorine. While strict testing requires notification when an unhealthy level of bacteria is present, no one wants to drink the water. Even treated, when the bacteria are due to sewage, many persons will buy bottled water. Unfortunately, the majority of bottled water isn’t as pure as it claims either, and is typically municipal tap water. Furthermore, bottled water doesn’t provide clean water for showers, laundry, or washing dishes. Fortunately, there’s a solution with a water filtration system in Arlington designed to provide clean, pure water for your home.
Carbon filtration systems are each designed to resolve various contaminant issues. For example, if the only contaminant in your water is the chlorine used to treat it, a basic carbon filtration system will provide water free of the chemical. If other chemical contaminants are present in the water, step it up to a system capable of removing them.
Heavy metals, bacteria, and viruses require a reverse osmosis system. However, when chlorine is the treatment for your water, the reverse osmosis system will require a carbon pre-filter to prevent damage to the membranes of a reverse osmosis system.
Hard water can only be softened with a water softening system. Water filtration can only remove mineral solids, leaving dissolved minerals in the water entering your home to damage the water heater, pipes, and others.
That may seem confusing, but resolving poor water quality begins with a water quality report. The report reveals the contaminants that may be present in your water. From this point, you match the water contaminants with the system designed to remove them. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing can provide the water filtration system in Arlington.
Carbon filtration is the system required for the average home. A carbon filter is available in a wide variety of abilities for the contaminants involved. It removes chemicals, the contaminants affecting taste and odor, and even radon from the water. Each system is designed for the specific removal of certain substances, and the list can be extremely long. Carbon filtration provides for most homes’ water quality needs.
Reverse osmosis (RO) is a step up from carbon filtration, and provides water 99% contaminant free. Its extreme effectiveness means it removes a higher number of contaminants than carbon filters, and removes those that carbon filtration can’t. The RO system picks up where carbon filtration leaves off by removing heavy metals, such as lead and copper, toxins such as radium and asbestos, and the biological contaminants of bacteria and viruses.
Remember, if your water is treated with chlorine, the RO requires a carbon prefilter to prevent damage to the membranes. A Benjamin Franklin plumber can provide the professional installation of the water filtration system in Arlington you need.
