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:

  • Chlorine
  • Chloride
  • VOCs
  • Nitrate
  • Lithium
  • Phosphate
  • Microplastics
  • Pesticides
  • Herbicides

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:

  • Viruses
  • Germs
  • Lead

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

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 Pearland 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.

Health protection

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.

Conserve Money

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.

This was THE most painless repair experience! We had a leak in a pipe behind our water heater, spewing water out into space, ugh. Joe and his apprentice, Dan, were here in about an hour or so. They were both so very friendly from the moment they showed up at the front door! After they determined the problem, we discussed the needed repair, and then they began to replace the pipe(s) behind the water heater. This was pretty much an all-day job and I can honestly say it was no problem having them in my home. They were not only professional and courteous employees; they were two very kind individuals, who were also comfortable and friendly around my crazy dogs! I have had nothing but the finest experiences with this company and cannot recommend them highly enough! They are the best!

Emanuel came out to inspect why our commode was not flushing properly. After an inspection he describer the options. Since the commode was over 40 years old we picked the option to replace the commode with a new one. He Asked several questions about what we would like and the showed us two options. We picked the one that we liked and he obtained the commode from the ware house and installed it the same afternoon.. He completed the installation and did a great clean up of the area and answered answered all of our questions. I fully recommend Emanuel and 1-800-Plumber of Pearland

Thanks for getting here so quickly and finding the issue. Also thanks for suggesting the locking caps - Hopefully this will prevent theft of the freon.

David P.

Excellent work by all, starting with the ease of making an appointment, the arrival of the service crew in a timely manner. They were on neatly dressed, very pleasant, explained everything and took the little extra steps to make the visit a success. I have used this plumber three times now and have always had exceptional service from them.

1-800 Plumbers Sugar Land is the best!! Hector the owner and his team of men, specifically Chad were great! Very friendly, thorough, fast, and I didn't feel like I was being taken advantage of or robbed.

Erinn D.

I had Kyle U as my plumbing tech. He did a great job and worked really hard to get to the bottom of things (like roots). He was also polite and honest.

Linda D.

Fine young man and as far as I am concerned he can be his permanent tech. He was very polite and he was very pleased with him and will be calling us again to work with Manolo. Manolo needs a pat on the back and he did a good job.
