Types of Water Treatment
Filtration. Water filtration is the process of removing impurities from your water supply. This includes minerals, sediment, and certain biological organisms. Filters can cover the entire household’s water supply, or scaled down to upgrade a single appliance.
Purification. Using chemical treatments, water purification works to neutralize toxins, harmful bacteria, and other contaminants from your water supply. Purification can involve a series of treatments or a permanent system installed in your home. Some of these systems utilize filtration to target contaminants and remove impurities.
Signs Your Water Needs Treatment
Your water smells. If your water smells of chlorine, detergent, or another strange chemical odor, it’s time to have your home’s water treated. A carbon filtration system can eliminate many chemicals from your water supply, but you should speak to a purification specialist before you buy.
The water feels hard or grainy. Minerals often accumulate in your home’s water. Some, like magnesium salt or calcium, are generally harmless. If you find sand (or silt) coming out of your tap, however, you’ll need to have your water treated. Chemical treatment or a reverse osmosis filtration system may be in order.
Your water leaves stains. If you are seeing brown or red stains around your home, what you are witnessing is most likely a byproduct of iron seepage. Do not drink your water if you see these stains, and call a specialist immediately. Your home may need chlorination or another chemical treatment.
If your water displays any of these signs or appears in an unusual color, take the safe approach and talk to a specialist. Our water treatment experts will be happy to answer all of your questions and explain the treatment process.
