Water Filtration System Arlington
Once you have made the decision to purchase a whole house water filtration system in Arlington, you should be aware that water filters are not all created equally. Water filters are designed to take care of different needs. For example, if lead is a concern in your water supply, you will need to purchase a system that removes lead, and not all systems will. Your main concern may be the removal of the chlorine and chloramine used to treat water. In this situation, the basic carbon water filtration system will likely remove these contaminants.
Water bottling companies have made a fortune on the premise that their water is “pure”, and from “pristine sources.” They spend millions convincing you that their water is safer than tap water. In the process, plastic bottles have filled landfills, and numerous studies have shown the majority are nothing more than municipal tap water.
Recently, a water bottler recalled water originating from one of its suppliers contaminated with dangerous Listeria. The water claims to undergo various filtration methods including reverse osmosis. Unfortunately, it was not, if had been, Listeria would not have been present in the water. A water filtration system in Arlington will assure that your family drinks clean, safe water, and with a whole house system, ensures clean water for all of your household and hygienic purposes.
The following provides a brief overview of the different types of filtration systems are and their benefits:
- Reverse osmosis utilizes a semi-permeable membrane to remove contaminants and is exceedingly effective. It removes common contaminates, heavy metals, pesticides, bacteria, and viruses and many more. Contaminates are expelled from the system. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing’s systems are high quality, utilizing extremely high-grade membranes and filters. Reverse osmosis provides water that is 99% pure.
- Carbon filter: A carbon filter is a porous filtration system available in either activated carbon or block carbon. As the water flows through this filter, contaminants are reduced, as well as odors and unpleasant taste
- Water softeners remove the minerals from hard water that harm appliances and plumbing. The system utilizes beads of sodium or potassium to remove minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Water softeners only remove minerals and do not otherwise filter water. However, a water softener can be used in conjunction with a water filtration system.
A water filtration system in Arlington will remove harmful contaminants that are known to cause illness and disease, while ensuring great tasting water without an unpleasant odor.
Bad Taste and/or Odor
If your water has a bad taste or odor, a water filtration system in Arlington can remove it. Municipal water often smells of chlorine, the chemical used to treat the water. Unfortunately, ingesting it also increases the risk of rectal and bladder cancers, and can cause kidney, liver, and nervous system damage.
Bacteria, Viruses and Parasites
Homes that use well water are more likely to have water contamination than municipal water supplies. A number of biological organisms are naturally occurring in water supplies, while others are the result of contamination by sewage, and runoff. Cysts, such as Giardia, can survive in chlorinated water supplies. Cysts can cause illness and are especially hazardous to the very young, elderly, or those with immune system disorders. The installation of a water filtration system in Arlington will ensure clean, safe water for your home.
