As humans, we are made up of mostly water. That’s why it is so important to have clean water in your house. A water filtration system rids your water of any impurities by means of a physical barrier or a chemical or biological process. Even homeowners that live in the Huntington Beach, CA area where there’s access to great water quality, there are still some impurities that can find their way into your water. Let the professionals at Resolved Home Services teach you more about water filtration systems while they quickly and painlessly install your new one into your home.
Poor water quality can damage appliances. If your water heater is struggling to work - get an upgrade with a tankless water heater installation.
Choosing Your Water Filtration System
There are a few different types of water filtration systems available, so before purchasing you might want to brush up on what the differences are and which is best for your needs. The different types of common water filtration systems are:
- Sediment Filtration
- Activated Carbon Block (ACB) Filtration
- Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) Filtration
- Ion-Exchange (IX)
- Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection
- Reverse Osmosis (RO) Filtration
Home’s with municipally treated water usually want a sediment filtration system, while a house that runs on well water will need something a little stronger like a Reverse Osmosis Filtration System. All of these systems can work to remove impurities like mineral content, chemical contamination, and general bacteria found in most public water systems.
Common Problems With Water Filtration Systems
Of all the different types of water filtration systems, the distillation system probably works the longest without needed repairs or other attention. However, it typically takes a little longer for it to do its job.
That said, some of the other filtration systems like the carbon filtration system will need its filter changed consistently in order for it to keep performing its intended job. The last thing you want is to waste money on a water filtration system because the filter wasn’t changed enough.
You can also experience things like mold and clogging if your water filtration system isn’t cleaned and well maintained.
