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 Long Island 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.

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.

Judi W.

He is very professional and very respectful.

Satisfied Customer

Kyle did an excellent job. H was very thorough and explained everything from start to finish. I would strongly recommend Kyle for any plumbing you might have.

Kyle

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!

Barbara H.

Kyle provided excelleent service as he always does. I have had some tricky plumbing problems and he has always solved the problem with efficient service and winning personality. He did a beautiful job on my pipe. He takes a lot of pride in his work .

Ruth L.

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!.
