The Importance of Water Filtration Systems

Here in Austell, GA, we have a pretty good civic water system, as do most of the surrounding communities. But no system is perfect and when problems come at you, they tend to come at you very quickly. Bacterial infections, unclean particles and hard water can all pervade your system in the wrong circumstances. In order to combat that, we recommended the installation of a water filtration system into your home: placed at the apex of your pipes and serving as a guardian against infection of all variety.

The Dangers of Contamination

Hard water is a recurring problem in our area, though thankfully it’s not as much of a problem as bacterial infection. It’s simply the presence of minerals like calcium in the water, which give it that strange metallic taste and can lead to build-ups of crusty white gunk on your shower heads and faucets. That’s bad enough, but in the event of a bacterial infection – caused by floodwaters or a similar failure of the civic system – your entire household can become sick or worse simply by drinking the water. The problem is that by the time most of these issues arise, it’s too late to stop them from getting into your plumbing system

The Type of Filtration Matters

Buying a water filtration system affords you an opportunity to think about what you are most concerned about with the plumbing in your home. A water softener can focus on hard water, for instance, while reverse osmosis systems can provide more comprehensive filtration for your home. If germs and bacteria are your primary concern, look into a UV water purifier can kills germs with ultraviolet light. A qualified plumber can point you in the right direction and perform a quality installation when you’ve made your choice.
