Water Treatment Solution For Houston Homes
Abacus Plumbing, Air Conditioning, and Electrical offers complete water treatment and Water Filtration for Houston area homes.
Municipal water treatment plants do a pretty good job of providing clean water coming from the plant. They treat the water with various chemicals and filters, but there are still some impurities. Once the water is in the city pipes, it can gather additional impurities before reaching your home. These impurities can cause pipes to become brittle, cause clogs, and make your plumbing system inefficient or leaky. In home water filtration can solve many of the problems and concerns Houston homeowners have with water quality.
The first step is to determine the combination of impurities in the water, like pesticides, minerals or metals, and chemicals. Since water treatment plants use chemicals to clean the water, the chemicals they use can interact with pipes under the streets and create by-products, which can damage additional pipes and are unhealthy to consume. Physical damage to pipes can introduce additional pesticides, chemicals and minerals.
Water treatment tests can be performed by your professional Abacus plumber to determine which impurities are causing a specific problem. Another contributing factor is the water source. Municipality managed water treatment plant treat the water and many plumbing service providers will test city-managed water for little or no cost. Well water has little filtration and no chemical treatment. It may also contain higher amounts of chemicals, pesticides and minerals. Testing well water may require more extensive tests and additional costs.
Since there are several types of water treatment issues, there are different solutions. One of the first steps to solving water treatment issues is water filtration. Water filtration systems are designed to remove particles, such as silt, metals and minerals, from the water. This filtration can occur as the water enters the home, as in whole house filtration systems or it can occur at the point of use, like a kitchen faucet water filter.
Removing impurities is important to the efficiency and reliability of the plumbing system as well as the overall health of the occupants of the home. Filtered water has no odor or taste. Better tasting water promotes more water consumption. Whole house water filtration systems have the added benefit of treating all the water coming into the house. Water used for showers, cooking, and laundry are free of impurities as well as the drinking water. Water is absorbed by the skin and lungs and water impurities may cause skin irritation or increase breathing problems.
To eliminate many water quality issues, Abacus recommends a whole house water filtration system to remove contaminants and chemicals in your homes plumbing system. Whole house water filters are different from water softeners. Water filters may not eliminate scale build-up, but they will reduce many kinds of contaminants and bacteria. If the water in your home is cloudy, smells or tastes bad, or irritates your skin, then a whole house water filtration system should solve your problem. A filtration system can last for many years and it doesn’t need maintenance. If you’re ready for water filtration, call us at 713-766-3605 or schedule your appointment online »
