Water Filtration Systems
Whole House Water Filtration and Conditioning for Sarasota
Think your water is clean? You may want to rethink that. Although the water may be treated it can still pick up contaminants on it way to you, as well as the chemicals it was treated with originally. The end result can be bad taste, odor, and less effective laundry detergent cleaning power.
Well water, although not chemically treated can still have organic contaminants and residual chemicals from the soil. In the Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch and Bradenton areas, the water from a well is usually heavy with calcium(known as hard water) and may smell strongly of sulfur. Even city water can be “hard” leaving unsightly scale deposits on sinks and showers, build up in your pipes and hot water heater, and even leaving your skin and hair rough and dry.
Whole house water filtration systems work well for general multi-purpose purification. And are highly effective in removing chlorine, chloramines, odor, and VOCs to provide a chemical-free water supply across your entire home. A whole house water softener(conditioner) does not work as a filter but works to soften hard water. A whole-house softener is recommended for a scale-free environment.
A softener combined with whole house filtration provides clean and conditioned water throughout every faucet.
Single Site Water Filtration
Every home has different water quality and/or filtration needs and there are many water filtration products available. Single site filtration is installed under the counter to provide filtered water at that faucet instead of the whole house.
There are different levels of filtration available for single site installation. Reverse osmosis is considered the highest form of purification and is frequently installed as at a single source but can be costly to install as a whole house system. However, it can be applied to a single site in combination with a whole house system to give you the purest form of drinking water and still have filtered conditioned water through the entire house. .
Having a source of pure water at the tap is not only convenient but it also provides a healthier water source to use for cooking, cleaning, washing your face and brushing your teeth.
Filtered drinking water can take the place bottled water saving money, time and fuel spent shopping, not to mention the plastic waste created by single use bottles.
