The Different Water Treatment Systems and What They Remove
To understand the importance of water treatment, you must 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 number one most effective system for removing trihalomethanes (THMs—poisonous chlorine byproducts) and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs). They're also number one for filtering out pesticides and herbicides.
Reverse Osmosis Filter Systems
RO systems utilize a semi-permeable membrane that allows water molecules to pass through while blocking other molecules. These typically remove many more types of contaminants than carbon filters. In addition to what carbon filters remove, RO systems also 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 make water more gentle for your skin and household appliances. They do this by removing excessive minerals like magnesium and calcium that make the water "hard."
The Benefits of Treating Your Water At Home
Now, let's look at the ways you can benefit from these water treatment systems.
Protect the Health of Your Household
Just look at all the toxins listed above that water filtration systems remove. As you can see, there are a number of hazardous ingredients you and your household will consume in your unfiltered tap water. Filter these out of your water and eliminate them from your life!
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.
Save Money and Protect the Environment
The most common alternative to home water filtration is buying case after case of bottled water. It doesn't take long for that to outweigh the cost of installing a water filtration system, even an expensive one.
Besides that, it's extremely bad for the environment. 70% of these bottles end up in landfills—where they'll remain for 500 years until they finally decompose.
The Importance of Water Treatment

Jeff did a great job and let us know what was going on continually. He is a very personable technician.
I really appreciated Manolos attitude and the way he had patience for all of my questions and never seemed like he was rushing or annoyed with me. He took the time to reexplain it to my husband when he got home. I didn't feel pressured into spending more money or like he was trying to just sell me stuff. I felt like he really took his time and that I was his priority. Thank you for having great service.

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
