Water Filtration systems

The usage of a filtration system can be more of a need rather than some trending “health insurance”, depending on the area and the water source your home uses. In order to provide us clean (free of bacteria) water, the water treatment facilities are adding to it certain amount of Chlorine, which we drink and use in the shower. We can easily prevent the negative health effects from the chlorine (dry hair and skin) by simply adding a Carbon Filter. These filtration systems can be installed by our specialists in a way that will purify the water for the whole house, including all points of use. On the other hand, the water for drinking and cooking requires special treatment to ensure you safe and easy-to-get substitute of the bottled-quality water you would buy from the store excluding fluoride. The best known solution for the drinking water is to keep the amount of TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) as low as possible and install RO (Reverse Osmosis) filter. If the source of your water supplies is a well, the possible solutions would be the water softeners, iron filters, or acid neutralizers.

Types of water filtration systems and how they work:


  • Reverse Osmosis (RO) drinking water system. The reverse osmosis is a mechanical process where a semipermeable membrane separates two liquids with different concentration. The filter works by using the tendency of the fluids to move from low to high solute concentration passing through the membrane. During this process, every particle larger than the water molecules is being removed. This includes the chemical contaminants not removed from the carbon filters such as arsenic, fluoride, nitrates, perchlorate and hexavalent chromium. Removing the dissolved solids on an ionic level, the RO filtration system provides purified, tasty water with no odors and safe for drinking.

  • Carbon Filtering or KDF (Kinetic Degradation Fluxion). This type of water purification system uses chemical absorption. The carbon granules have a pore structure and provide a large surface area for maximum exposure of the liquid. During that process the pollutant molecules are being trapped in the pores, providing you clean water free of chlorine, sediment, violate organic compounds (VOCs), odors and bad taste.

  • Water Softeners. These devices use an ion exchange process where the calcium, magnesium, barium and certain forms of radium are being replaced by sodium. These systems do not remove other chemical contaminants and should be used in addition to your water purification system and not as its replacement. Read more

  • Iron Filters. Mostly used to purify well water, these filters remove the ferric and ferrous iron that would naturally occur. Besides staining your toilet bowls and sinks in red and causing the unpleasant rotten egg odor, the iron can create health problems if exceeds levels more than 3 ppm.

  • Acid Neutralizers (Alkaline Filters). These filters reduce the acidity and provide you perfectly pH-balanced alkaline water which is easily absorbed by the body. Only a pH range of 7.2 and above is beneficial to your good health and helps your body to fight bacterial and infectious diseases.

A great solution for any home, relay on city water, would be the combination of both Carbon and RO filters. Once purified by your Carbon Filter, the water in your kitchen will be additionally treated by the point-of-use RO filter and ready for drinking. If you are using well water, you may need a water softener, iron filter or acid neutralizer in order to protect all fixtures as well as water distribution system. The experienced technicians from Carolina Plumbing Pros can perform tests to determine the levels of pollution and the type of filter or combination of that should be applied.
