How Water Filtration Works

plumber in Temecula, CA

Even water from a municipal source can be affected by the nature of your pipes or other factors like the mineral content level or “hardness” of your water. Fortunately, a plumber in Temecula, CA from A.M. Plumbing & Rooter is ready to help you improve the water quality in your home. Keep reading to learn more about how water filtration works.

Physical and Chemical Filtration

Physical filtration uses a filter to strain water to remove particles. This method usually involves a gauze-like membrane that targets larger particles. Chemical filtration, on the other hand, uses chemical processes to remove impurities from your water.

Types of Filters

There are specific types of filters that can be used for water filtration. Some of them are attached to faucets or sinks, while others are designed to provide whole-house filtration. The main types of filters used for filtration systems include:

  • Carbon filters that absorb contaminants
  • Mechanical filters that remove impurities with basic mesh or ceramic filters
  • Sequestration filters that prevent minerals from forming scale on surfaces
  • Reverse osmosis filters that remove dissolved inorganic solids by forcing water through a membrane under high pressure
  • Ion exchange filters that soften water by “switching out” ions to make chemicals in water less corrosive

Reasons to Consider Water Filtration

While needing a water filtration system may not be an emergency plumbing situation, it is an investment that you can benefit a lot from for years to come. For instance, the right system can improve water taste and eliminate unpleasant odors.

Reducing the need for plumbing repairs is another reason to consider a water filtration system if you have issues with hard water. The right unit can also make household water you drink and cook healthier and safer.
