The efficacy of these water treatment facilities varies from city to city, though most of them are good enough to remove the majority of harmful materials from the water supply. It is important to remember, though, that none of these water treatment processes are 100% effective.

Plumber’s Tip: Types of Water Treatment Systems

Monday, January 28th, 2013

Here at SPS Mechanical, we get a lot of questions from customers in the Sewell, NJ area about water treatment systems. If you are thinking about which water treatment system is right for your home, call us. We can go over the different types of systems that we can install for you to find which one is right for your home.

Here are a few of the water treatment systems available:

  • Whole home water filtration systems – With a whole home water filtration system, you get more protection than just using a faucet filter. If you have hard water, this could be a good option for your since it can protect all of your water pipes from mineral build-up, such as magnesium and calcium build-up.
  • Reverse osmosis – A whole–house reverse osmosis system targets many of the more common contaminants found in our area. These systems only require a small amount of basic maintenance, and they can provide you with pure drinking water right out of your tap!
  • Chemical feed pumps – Chemical feed pumps work by using salts and minerals to remove arsenic, calcium, iron, sulfur, and other contaminants in your fresh water supply. These systems also neutralize acidic water, and they are safe and cost-effective.

Get the clean, pure water in your home that you deserve. Not only do contaminants in your water supply cause build-ups and plumbing problems, but they also cause strong odors and a bad taste, which can be harmful to your health depending on what’s in your water. When minerals build up in your plumbing system, it can make everyday tasks, such as washing clothes or dishes, difficult to complete.

Don’t hesitate to call SPS Mechanical if you would like to speak with one of our Sewell, NJ plumbers about the water treatment system that’s right for your needs.
