Improve Water Quality with Pro Water Filter Installation

High-quality potable water is an important part of protecting your health and well-being. However, many people rely on municipal water sources that can be contaminated with excess minerals, chemicals and other harmful substances. Even private wells may be contaminated, particularly if you live near heavy agricultural or industrial activity. A water filter is a convenient tool to help ensure that the water you drink is clean, healthy and contamination-free.

At Ken Griffin Plumbing Services, we sell and service a variety of water filter systems to keep your water supply clean and healthy. Your water treatment specialist can help you decide if water filter installation in Columbia would benefit you.

Water Filter Systems Can Come in Several Different Designs

The design of a water filter can vary, and each design has their own benefits and drawbacks. The most popular types of water filters are:

  1. Activated Carbon Filters: These filters are the most common type of water filter, and for good reason. Activated carbon filters work by capturing impurities in potable water, including chlorine, pesticides and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). They also improve the taste and odor of the water. However, they are not effective at removing minerals or heavy metals.
  2. Reverse Osmosis Filters: Reverse osmosis filters are a popular choice for homeowners who want to remove minerals, heavy metals and other contaminants from their water. They function by pushing water through a semi-permeable membrane that removes impurities. Fresh, clean water is all that remains. However, reverse osmosis filters are more expensive and require routine maintenance for best results.
  3. Sodium Ion Exchange Filters: Taking advantage of natural ion exchange processes, special resin beads in sodium ion exchange filters swap hard minerals for soluble salt molecules. They are popularly known as water softeners, and are especially useful for resolving hard water.
  4. Ultraviolet Light Filters: With the sanitizing properties of UV light, such filters should be used to eliminate microorganisms like mold, bacteria and even viruses. UV rays affect the microbes’ DNA, stopping them from reproducing and virtually eliminating them from potable water.

Benefits of Using Water Filters

There are all kinds of perks to installing a quality water filter, so voice any potential concerns before proceeding with installation. That way you’ll know your chosen water filter is right for you. As soon as we’re through with installation, you can enjoy these benefits, including:


Improved taste and smell

One of the main benefits of using a water filter is that it removes anything that can adversely affect the smell or taste of your water. Filters can remove the chlorine, sediments and other materials that ruin your water’s taste.

Minimal risk of contaminants, supporting your family's health

Another significant benefit of using a water filter is that can almost totally eliminate pollution in your water. When installed by a professional, it should filter out bacteria, viruses, lead and other harmful substances that make you sick.



Protection for the rest of your plumbing

Contaminants and hard minerals may eventually impact the efficiency of your plumbing, so water filtration is an important part of any strategy to keep plumbing efficiency as high as possible.

More environmentally friendly than bottled water

Using a whole-house water filter significantly reduces the number of plastic water bottles you or your family may need. Along with all the other perks, you can even improve your carbon footprint and help ensure a healthy planet.
