How Do Water Filtration Systems Work?

There are four main types of filtration systems you can use in your home:

  • Reverse Osmosis: This type of filter forces water to pass through a super permeable membrane, catching and removing contaminants like iron, lead, and mercury. However, this will not filter out certain chemicals, solvents, or pesticides.
  • Steam Distillation: This type of system heats water to the boiling point, collects it, and recondenses it back into a liquid form. Many contaminants have a different boiling point than water, allowing the system to catch them and clear them out.
  • Activated Carbon Filters: This is the most common type of filter used in homes, and uses porous charcoal to prevent larger particles from passing through and catching and breaking down other compounds and chemicals as they pass through.
  • Ion Exchange: This type of filter is best used to treat hard water through a chemical process that raises the sodium content of your water.

The Benefits of Water Filtration Systems

While many people try to stay healthy by controlling what food goes into their bodies, fewer individuals seem to be concerned with the water that they are drinking. Depending on your local water treatment plant or well and the piping system that transports your drinking water, there could be varying levels of chemicals and other contaminants in your water.

Common contaminants that can be found in drinking water include:

  • Aluminum
  • Arsenic
  • Barium
  • Beryllium
  • Cadmium
  • Chromium
  • Copper
  • Lead
  • Lithium
  • Manganese
  • Thallium
  • Zinc

You might be surprised, and even disturbed, to look up some of the health risks associated with prolonged exposure to large amounts of the above contaminants. One of the best ways to safeguard yourself and others from the harmful contaminants that can be found in water is to install a water filtration system.

Whether you need a professional installation, repair, or service of a water filtration system, our licensed plumbers can provide exactly what you need.

Why Does My Water Taste Like Metal?

There are a number of reasons why your water may take on a metallic taste, including:

  • Contaminants including copper, iron, manganese, and zinc. This is often caused by aging pipes close to the end of their lifecycle. Pipes typically last 80-100 years, so if your pipes are around that age you may need to install new pipes in your home.
  • Seepage or corrosion into your water source. If your home uses well water, there's a chance a metallic taste is a sign that contaminants got into your water supply, either from runoff or deterioration in the pipes leading to and from your well.
  • Low pH levels in your water. This is also sometimes referred to as "soft water" and can be tested using a pH level test kit available at almost any convenience store.

While the water may still be safe to drink, it's important to get your plumbing system checked to make sure there isn't a serious problem that needs to be fixed right away.

Water Softener Services in Riverside, LA & Orange County

If you have noticed stains on your plumbing fixtures, water spots on your dishes or in your shower, or fogginess in glasses, you likely have hard water. This type of water contains more minerals than regular water and can end up causing a number of problems, including damage to your plumbing system.

The best way to resolve these issues is to soften your water. Installing a water softener removes substances like calcium and magnesium from your water, leaving you with water that is better for you and your plumbing.

The benefits of a home water softener include:

  • Healthier and softer skin
  • Spot-free dishes
  • Decreased cleaning of showers and tubs
  • Money savings on soaps and detergents
  • Prolonged life for your water heater, appliances, and fixtures
  • Increased life span for plumbing system
