    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 McKinney 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.

    Plugged drain outside of house. Came out the next day, showed us the video of the tree branches in our line, gave me a quote over the phone and I had them start work. Finished in a few hours and left with our system drain restored.

    Craig C.

    First plumber we called wanted $3500.00 to replace everything. Emanuel came out and suggested we change one part and less than $300.00 later we was up and running again. From Mark, to Taylor, and then on to Emanuel the whole experience was professional and I will be a customer for life. Hopefully not often though. Great working with you guys!.
