Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I know if my water needs to be filtered?

    Your public water authority does the best it can to provide you with potable water. However, water passing through a series of pipes to reach your home may contain sediment. Therefore, a sediment reduction filter is advisable on the incoming water line. Our whole house filtration systems help protect washers and seals from premature wear, help prevent aerators and valves from plugging and help keep your water heater from collecting excessive sediment.


    Additionally, if you do not care for the taste of your home's tap water, a whole house water filter system that reduces not only sediment but chlorine, taste and odor as well.


    Keep in mind that contaminant levels may vary depending on the season or the weather. Additionally, in the case of lead, the contaminant may not be accurately represented in water quality reports, as it may originate in a home piping system.
