Water Filtration Systems in the Coachella Valley
Interested in Filtering Your Home or Office Water System?
Fresh, clean water is vital to so many aspects of everyday life in a home. From a toddler brushing his or her teeth to an adult filling water glasses to serve with dinner, homeowners use water constantly. Therefore, having the best-tasting, safest water coming out of the taps should be a priority. A water filtration system helps ensure your water is clean and safe and that it tastes right.
At KC’s 23 1/2 Hour Plumbing, we install water filtration and purification systems in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Indio, and other communities in the Coachella Valley that will make city water healthy with no bacteria and taste much better. In addition to tasting better, the water will be safer to drink and use for food preparation. We will also help homeowners select the correct size and type of whole house water filtration system that is best for their home.
Many people use a house water filter for their drinking water. Therefore, a purification system should be installed as well. A whole house filter system differs from other water filters, softeners, distillers, and purifiers in that it treats water at its point of entry before it reaches your faucets, showers, toilets, and laundry. It is usually attached to the main water line, removing impurities such as:
- Toxic chemicals
Removing the chlorine from the plumbing system leaves it susceptible to bacteria growth. Whenever installing a whole home filtration system install a purification system as well.

Tap Water Concerns
It is surprising how many homeowners drink bottled water because they are unhappy with the taste of their tap water, yet they do not hesitate to cook vegetables or make coffee using the unpleasant tasting tap water. No matter how well a municipality treats the water, chlorine, chloramine, toxic chemicals, and sediment get in pipes and affect the quality of water coming out of taps.
Finding the Right Filtration for City Water
Since all city water contains at least some contaminants, it is important to have KC’s 23 1/2 Hour Plumbing help homeowners select the system designed to remove the specific contaminants present in the area and offer the right kind of water treatment options available. For example, rural farm communities, where many residents may see more chemicals in the water from pesticides, so having the right water filtration system for a specific area is vital.
Choosing a Home Water Filtration System
When deciding on the best water filter system for your home, consider the following factors:
Service life: A standard 10” x 54” carbon filter with back wash can run for up to 13 years while filtering normal municipal water. Filter life depends on the material quality and the quality of the water source.
Flow rate: Filter flow rate is measured in gallons per minute or gpm. Most houses require anywhere from 15-40 gpm. If a filter is lower than that, it won’t support normal water pressure for showers, toilets, hot water heaters, etc.
Size: A larger filter supports a higher level of flow and requires less frequent service. For most homes, a 10” x 54” filter is fine, In the case of a larger size home you would use a 13.5” x 54” system.
Port size example: A 1” port size is ideal for a house water filter system. It is suited for ¾” piping and will carry enough water to avoid pressure drops and supply all your faucets and appliances.
Benefits of Clean, Healthy Water
When a home water filtration system is installed, it encourages all household members to drink more water.
Water is essential for the following health reasons:
Proper brain function
Getting nutrients to cells
Balancing hormone levels
Few people drink enough water, but, if clean, great tasting water was available from every faucet in the home, it would be much easier for people to drink the recommended amount of water daily.
A whole house water treatment, purification, and scale system also helps prolong the life of your appliances eliminating scale problems from hard water. That will damage washing machines, hot water tanks, dishwashers, and even coffee pots. With scale prevention, you may not need to replace these as often
Do You Need to Maintain Your Water Filtration System?
A professionally installed water filtration, purification and scale treatment system needs little maintenance, but having the same professional plumbing contractor that installed the system perform the maintenance is important. The cost is minor compared to the cost of buying bottled water, and a properly maintained whole house filtration system adds to a home’s value.
It is always best to let professionals install and maintain water purification and treatment systems so the system is installed correctly and does not cause a loss in water pressure.
