How often should water purification systems be maintained?

Regular maintenance of water purification systems is crucial to ensure their optimal performance. It's recommended to follow the manufacturer's guidelines for maintenance schedules and consider professional servicing annually.

Can water purification systems improve the taste of tap water?

Yes, water purification systems can significantly enhance the taste and odor of tap water by removing impurities and contaminants that affect its quality. Many users notice a noticeable improvement in the taste of their water after installing a purification system.

Are water purification systems environmentally friendly?

Many modern water purification systems are designed to be environmentally friendly, using efficient filtration methods that minimize water wastage. Look for systems with certifications like ENERGY STAR or WaterSense to ensure they meet eco-friendly standards.

Do water purification systems consume a lot of energy?

The energy consumption of water purification systems varies depending on the type and size of the system. Look for energy-efficient models with low power consumption ratings to minimize the impact on your electricity bills.

Water Solutions Through Water Treatment & Filtration Systems

How do Filtration Systems Clean Water?

Filtration systems use a filter to remove impurities from water. Filters are made from a variety of different substances. For example, even air in an aeration filter is an example of a filter type. Filtration systems remove substances like lead, iron, and other heavy metals from the water supply.

What do Water Softeners Do?

Water softeners reduce the hardness of your water. The minerals that usually cause hard water are calcium and magnesium. As a result, water softeners replace calcium and magnesium ions with sodium or potassium ions.

What Are the Benefits of Installing a Water Softener?

  1. Appliance Longevity: One of the notable advantages of using water softeners is the prolonged lifespan of household appliances. Hard water tends to leave mineral deposits, known as limescale, on surfaces, such as pipes, faucets, and appliances like dishwashers and water heaters. Over time, these deposits can lead to decreased efficiency and even permanent damage. By preventing the buildup of limescale, water softeners help appliances operate more efficiently, reducing maintenance costs and extending their lifespan.
  2. Efficient Cleaning: Softened water enhances the effectiveness of soaps and detergents, allowing for more efficient cleaning. Hard water tends to form insoluble compounds with these cleaning agents, resulting in soap scum and reduced lathering. 
  3. Energy Savings: Water heaters are among the appliances that benefit significantly from water softeners. The buildup of limescale in water heaters can insulate the heating element, reducing its efficiency and increasing energy consumption. Softened water helps maintain the heating efficiency of water heaters, leading to lower energy bills.

What are RO Systems?

RO stands for “reverse osmosis.” This is the same process major bottled water companies use to filter water before bottling and selling bottled water. Most importantly, reverse osmosis systems remove things like lead, arsenic, fluorides, uranium, minerals, chlorine, and more from your water. Our RO system fits easily under your sink, so say goodbye to plastic water bottles!

Ultraviolet Systems

Many wells and other untreated water sources can contain unwanted and harmful organisms. In addition, water is always susceptible to ever-changing contamination from underground seepage, surface water, or groundwater. A clear water test one day does not guarantee clear water the next. An ultraviolet system sterilizes and kills bacteria to address these issues.
