Why Install a Water Treatment System?
Unless you get your water from a well, chances are most of the water your plumbing system uses passes through a city treatment plant before it gets to you. These plants are meant to remove the majority of harmful chemicals, minerals, and other contaminants that might cause problems for you or your plumbing. How effective these plants are will vary wildly from area to area. What matters most, though, is that none of them are 100% effective.
There is always a chance that your water may contain lead, arsenic, cyanide, or some other highly toxic material. This is why it’s a good idea to outfit your home with an extra layer of protection, in the form of a water treatment system.
Types of Water Treatment Systems We Install
When it comes to protecting your home from waterborne contaminants, you should go with whatever treats the most common issue you have. Water testing can reveal what harmful substance has the highest concentration in your supply, and from there you can target it with specific systems. For example:
- Reverse Osmosis: Reverse osmosis systems work by forcing all water entering the home through an ultrathin membrane. While the water molecules are small enough to pass through the membrane, most contaminants are not. These are collected in a receptacle, which can later be disposed of safely.
- Water Softeners: A water softener is meant to protect against hard water, which is water with a high level of magnesium and calcium. Prolonged exposure to hard water causes lime scale to form, which restricts the flow of water through the plumbing system and reduces its efficiency. A water softener replaces the magnesium and calcium particles in the water with sodium, "softening" the water in the process.
