Enhance Your Home’s Water Filtration System With These 3 Add-ons
Quality water filtration systems do a great job of defending against a lot of the impurities and contaminating agents that can end up in your drinking water. Certain water filtration system add-ons can provide you with an even greater defense against the pollutants that your main system may miss.
Tri-Florida Water Treatment of Auburndale, FL, would like to tell you about three of these add-ons that will give you cleaner, better-tasting water.
It’s often the case that residential water filtration systems don’t do a great job of removing sediments from the water coming into the house. Filtering products are excellent at getting rid of various pollutants, but they’re not always efficient at removing sediments and particulate matter.
A sediment pre-filter can be added to block suspended solids and particulate matter, keeping your drinking water free of these contaminants.
These filters catch solids before they reach your main water filtration system. Sediment pre-filters are ideal for blocking:
- Rust chips
- Various chemicals
Maintaining a sediment pre-filter is easy. Your water technician can show you exactly how.
These filters affect the water that comes through other filters and add-ons. A UV post-filter is an outstanding safety precaution, because it works on a range of bacterial, viral and other types of contaminants to keep them out of the water you drink.
By blocking these organisms, a UV post-filter can prevent a variety of illnesses such as dysentery, cholera, hepatitis and others, all of which can be contracted through contaminated drinking water.
The post-filter introduces ultraviolet, germicidal light into the water. It’s a fairly scientific process, but in simple terms, the light wreaks havoc with the DNA within the targeted organisms, rendering them non-infective.
UV post-filters are good for the health and safety of everybody, and particularly for that of young babies, the elderly and individuals with compromises to their immune systems.
While the typical hard water found widely in municipal water supplies isn’t necessarily dangerous, it certainly doesn’t taste very good, and it can make a real mess in your pots, pans and dishes.
The reason for the taste and the mess is magnesium and calcium, which are commonly present in water supplies throughout the U.S.
Magnesium and calcium cause water to taste “off” or “hard” and cause deposits to build up on cookware. Additionally, it will leave ugly spots all over freshly washed dishes.
Some water softening systems use salt, others do not. Your water technician can explain all the details of both types of systems so you can install the style that will optimally serve your needs.
