What are the different types of water filtration systems?
The filtration system we install for you will depend on the type of contaminant you would like to remove from your water supply.
One of the most basic but highly effective systems is sediment filtration. In this system, the water is strained through several different filters of various sizes to remove first large then progressively smaller particles. By the time the water is all the way through the filter, any sediment (such as small dirt particles) should be completely removed.
The oldest sediment filters used different sizes of sand as their different layers of filters, but modern filters use more advanced materials such as ceramic and cellulose. Sediment filtration happens naturally in wells and rivers, which is why water from those sources often seems so clean.
Carbon filters are common in water pitchers and tap-mounted water filters (though as these filters require frequent replacement, the costs add up quickly). The carbon is put through a special processing step at extremely high temperatures to create a mass of millions of microscopic pores called “activated carbon.” The activated carbon attracts large numbers of organic chemical contaminants (such as chlorine, which can affect taste and odor), making sure they never reach the tap.
Reverse osmosis is the most common method used for desalinating seawater—that is, taking salt water and making it drinkable. The same technology can be used in your home, too. Reverse osmosis is similar to sediment filtration in that the water moves through a membrane and non-water particles are removed. The membrane used in reverse osmosis, however, catches different impurities compared to sediment and carbon filters; the former catches all of the non-organic but extremely tiny particles that sediment and carbon filters miss.
Which system should you install?
Many customers contact us with questions about how to produce cleaner, better tasting water in their homes, but they are not sure where to begin. While the three filtration systems mentioned above are the most commonly used, many others exist and all are designed to filter out different impurities.
Your Seaway plumber is familiar with the water quality in your area. We know what impurities need to be filtered out and which filtration system will provide the best results. You deserve a clean supply of fresh water. The right filtration system provides the extra effort needed to help you achieve the purity you are looking for.
