How Water Filtration Works
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.

What They SAy About Us
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
