WHY CONSIDER A WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM?

Water has the amazing ability to dissolve many substances. You see this when you are soaking your dishes to wash or when water comes into contact with mud. These substances dissolve by binding themselves to the water molecule itself, which is where it can cause us problems when we drink the water. If you think about the water cycle, water is naturally filtered through the earth. Along the way, it can pick up dirt, chemicals, and even bacteria that, although your local water plant helps to filter, can still sneak by to your home or office’s water system.

HOW A WATER FILTER WORKS

There are two ways to filter water: physical water filtration that uses membranes to strain the water and remove the remaining contaminants or chemical filtration where chemicals or other active materials are used to remove impurities in the water and kill any germs, bacteria, or parasites lurking.

The water filtration process works almost the same way in both the physical and the chemical water filtration process. First, your water passes through a membrane designed to trap any large sediment particles and other contaminants. Next, the water will pass through an activated carbon filter that works much like a magnet. Lead and other volatile compounds adhere to the carbon surface and are thus removed. Finally, carbon filters and other types of water filters cause chemical reactions that help to remove chemicals, such as chlorine, from your water.

CHANGING YOUR WATER FILTERS

This process is repeated every time you use your water that passes through this system. Eventually, the amount of contaminants and particles caught fills the membrane, and it’s then time to replace the old one with a new one. Changing your old water filter for a new one is usually as simple as purchasing a replacement filter and installing it. If you have problems or questions, call Vegas Valley Plumbing, and our technicians can help.

WATER FILTRATION SYSTEMS UNPACKED

Water filters often use a combination of different methods in order to yield the best results since each water filter has different properties and characteristics. There are different types of water filtration systems that use different methods. These types of water filters include mechanical, absorption, sequestration, ion exchange, reverse osmosis, and more. By combining the use of several of these types of water filtration systems for your home or office space, you’ll have the purest water possible.
