It is not unusual for all water to contain some contaminants. As water travels through streams and rivers, it comes in contact with rocks and soil, absorbing substances it has come into contact with. Municipal water treatment facilities effectively remove some disease causing contaminants from the water before it reaches your home. Unfortunately, water treatment leaves behind numerous contaminants that treatment has no effect on.
Those whose water supply is from a well, will not have the benefit treatment from a water treatment facility. Consequently, well water is more likely to contain contaminants that may have entered the water table.
Water quality and the growing demand for clean water to drink, cook and bathe in, is increasingly being met with the installation of a water filtration system in Fort Worth.
There is reason for concern, as the list of contaminates contains both those from naturally occurring sources, and those resulting from undesirable substances entering the public water system. Chlorine is the longstanding treatment of choice in many public water systems for the treatment of bacteria, viruses, and parasites. The solution for ensuring clean, safe water is a water filtration system in Fort Worth.
Chemicals from industrial waste, pesticides, herbicides, are a source of water contamination, and water quality will vary between areas. When considering a water filtration system in Fort Worth, have your water tested and use the resulting water quality report as a guide to assist you in selecting the proper system. Filtration systems vary between models in the contaminants they will remove,providing you with the ability to select the system required for your needs.
The most common types of water filtration systems in Fort Worth that homeowners choose are carbon filtration and reverse osmosis systems.
A carbon filtration system uses either activated carbon or block carbon filtration. Carbon is a powerful substance, capable of removing thousands of contaminants. Activated carbon has received a positive charge, enhancing its ability to attract contaminants. However, carbon block filters are capability of removing a more impurities. Granular carbon is the best selection for the removal of the chlorine and chloramines used in water treatment. Carbon filtration is extremely effective, and is sufficient for the needs of the average home.
Like reverse osmosis, carbon filters are rated by the size of particles it can remove. Typical ratings are from the least effective 50 micron to the most effective 0.05 micron.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is one the most effective water filtration systems available. It provides water that is 99% free of contaminants. RO uses a semi-permeable membrane and water pressure to remove contaminates, such as fluoride, pesticides, herbicides, chemicals, heavy metals, biological contaminants, and toxins such as radium and asbestos.
Combining carbon filtration with reverse osmosis, provides a superior water filtration system in Fort Worth for effective treatment. In addition, a RO system requires a carbon pre-filter to remove chlorine, which will damage the membranes of the RO system.
