Most homeowners want the water they drink to be clean and free of contaminants. While your municipal water supply is often treated to remove some common contaminants, others may remain in your water supply, or they may make their way into your water as it moves through the water supply lines. And many harmful contaminants may reside in your water supply if your home relies on a well.
That’s why many homeowners rely on whole-house water filtration systems to keep their water clean and healthy. But with all of the systems available today, it’s hard to know which one is right for you without proper testing. Let’s take a look at the type of systems out there and why it’s important to schedule professional water testing in Tempe.
Types of Systems Available
There are a lot of different types of filtration systems available to treat your particular water supply problem—so many, in fact, that you may be unable to pick the right one without water testing.
- Water Softener: While a majority of homes have “hard water” and experience no problems, some people may have a slight reaction to the minerals in their water. Or, hard water can cause mineral deposits to build up to the point that pipes are unusable, but a water softener can prevent this from occurring.
- Reverse Osmosis System: A reverse osmosis system filters out many contaminants by using a membrane with holes that are too small for anything to pass through besides water.
- Specialty Cartridges: A reverse osmosis system may be unnecessary for some homeowners, who would rather use specialty cartridges to filter out only those contaminants found to be a problem during water testing.
- Chemical Feed Pump: A chemical feed pump is used to treat contaminants in well water, and can be designed to target only those bacteria and minerals common in your area.
