What Water Filter System Should I Get?
Water filtration systems are ideal for different situations. Depending on your concerns and specific needs, we may recommend certain systems over others.
The most common filtration systems include:
Using multiple layers of active carbon, these filters trap impurities, leaving your water tasting crisp and clean. They are mostly used for removing taste, odor, sediment, chlorine, and volatile organic compounds.
The activated beds of carbon use a process called adsorption, in which the pollution within the water is absorbed, and trapped. It is important to keep in mind that with carbon filters, the flow speed of the water affects the end results. The longer the water is around its surface area, the more pollutants being adsorbed.
Reverse Osmosis (RO)
As the water passes through the membrane of a reverse osmosis filter, bacteria are trapped, and the water is then pumped back into your plumbing system. Osmosis is a naturally occurring process, and through its occurrence, it was learned that RO could be used to desalinate water.
This form of water filtration is used in places where water is scarce, it can be used for recycling, and even produce energy!
These specialized tanks are filled with salts that neutralize harmful minerals such as magnesium and calcium. Hard water can cause much damage to a home and its plumbing system.
By using a water softener, all the water in your home becomes of higher quality. This can make your hair and skin softer, without adding any irritants. Not only do you benefit from consuming the water, but it is also good for your plants, your dishes, even your nails.
