Different Water Treatment Systems
Before we get into water treatment and the details, you need to first understand what water treatment does.
Activated Carbon Water Filters
The activated carbon in these systems removes contaminants in water by bonding with them when the water passes through. These are highly effective at eliminating:
Carbon filters are the most effective system for removing trihalomethanes (THMs-- harmful chlorine byproducts) and various other volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Reverse Osmosis Filter Systems
RO systems make use of a semi-permeable membrane layer that allows water molecules to travel through while blocking the molecules that are harmful. Reverse osmosis typically removes many more types of impurities; than carbon filters. In addition to what carbon filters eliminate, RO systems additionally filter out:
There are some NSF-approved carbon filters designed to remove these contaminants as well. But many carbon filters let these contaminants slip right through.
Water softeners are another type of filter; they are common as they make water gentler for your skin. This is done by removing extreme minerals like magnesium as well as calcium that make the water "hard" or irritable to the skin
The Benefits of Treating Your Water in Your Columbia Home.
Now that you have learned about the different types of water filters, let's take a look at how they will help you and your home.
After reading about the hazardous material that these different types of filters get rid of. Think about what would happen if these filters were not present.
These harmful chemicals have negatively impacted the lives of many people who do not have these types of filters. So much so, many new houses are being built with a wide variety of filtration systems.
Protect Your Appliances
Hard water is so named for a good reason. It's extremely damaging to any household appliances that normally come into contact with it (sink fixtures, dishwashers, washing machines, etc.). It's also not very nice to your skin, scalp, and clothing.
One of the most common alternatives to home water filtration is buying cases of water. The convenience of water bottles has become more and more common over the years. However, as you buy these water bottles, think about how quickly you will recognize that you could have purchased a new filtration system.
Besides that, it's incredibly harmful to the environment. 70% of these containers end up in landfills-- where they'll remain for 500 years until they finally disintegrate or decompose.

Justin and Richard from electric cane. Did a superb job! Highly recommend always!
Kyle did an excellent job. He was very thorough and explained everything from start to finish. I would strongly recommend Kyle for any plumbing you might have.
EMANUEL REYES IS GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was my first time with 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland. I called with a minor issue with the dishwasher drain hose and asked that a tech be dispatched on Saturday so that I could be home from work. Chad was scheduled between 8am & 10am today (Sat) and arrived just before 9am. Chad was very knowledgeable and explained to me the entire process. He also answered my many many questions about what he was doing as he was doing it. I'm a smart guy but know very little about plumbing. I felt very comfortable with Chad doing the repair. The long and the short of it, 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland has a new longtime customer and I will request that Chad be sent if possible the next time I have a plumbing issue.
Nick did a great job and very nice and professional. Thanks
Kyle Urban is great! He does beautiful work and is a great guy! We will request him personally from now on.
Ray did great.
Nick was wonderful did an outstanding job, explained all options and extremely thorough. She will call back and use us again. She was very pleased and very happy that she didnt have to clean up after him.
My daughter Natalie Permenter actually ordered the service. I'm at her house during the day to keep my grandson. I was very impressed by Emanuel, the plumber that cam. He was very professional and seemed to really care about his clients. Natalie tells me the lady in the office also showed professionalism and a genuine desire to help. Emanuel was disappointed that he couldn't get the job done on day one; but promised to come back the next day. True to his word he was here bright and early. I am so impressed to finally find a company that really cares about the consumer; not just the dollar.
