Want the best quality water for your family? Why deal with bottled when you can have thoroughly clean and fresh-tasting water throughout your whole home. Besides great coffee and tea, you’ll enjoy healthier skin and hair, no scale buildup on shower heads and shower stalls, plus your appliances will last longer. Our plumbing services provide expert whole house water filter installation, repair, and maintenance. Let’s consider needs and the differences between water filtration systems and water softeners.

Federal and state water standards set requirements for basic health. But that doesn’t mean it looks, tastes, or smells great. Municipal water treatment systems may still pass small amounts of worrisome components such as pesticides. Additionally, their water conditioning system uses chlorine and/or ammonia to kill bacteria. The resulting chloramines and chlorine in the water isn’t good for skin and hair and adds an unpleasant taste.
Most areas in Southern California have hard water, that is high levels of calcium and magnesium. Those are actually important nutrients but they scale the inside of pipes, water heaters, and other appliances. They also dull dishes, and in general, interfere with washing.
Did you know? Catalytic carbon filtration is the only approved method for removing pesticides from water.
A water softener removes that magnesium and calcium. Most use special plastic resin beads for “ion exchange” that traps minerals in the beads. The salt you put in is used to create salt-water that flushes out the unwanted minerals. No salt goes into your home, but it does go into the sewer and eventually the environment. Now days there are salt-free technologies available.
Water filters remove other compounds for better health along with better tasting food and drinks. There are two main types.
- Activated Charcoal Water Filtration Specially prepared carbon presents a huge surface area that chemically adsorbs volatile organic compounds and many other pollutants. They’re in special pitchers and faucet attachments as well as the whole house water filters we install. Our water conditioning systems feature catalytic carbon filters that chemically react to better remove chloramines, chlorine, ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and herbicides.
- Reverse Osmosis Systems This technology uses a molecular-scale membrane for exceptionally pure water. They’re most commonly used as under-sink filters in homes. They can remove nearly all minerals, producing water that tastes bland to many people.
