Water Filtration System Installation in the Coachella Valley
Pure, Clean Drinking Water from Every Faucet
Do you know what’s in your water? From drinking to cooking to washing, clean water is vital to so many aspects of everyday life for both homes and businesses. A safe supply of water coming out of the taps should be a priority, yet there are so many contaminants and additives in a regular water supply that it’s often impossible to know exactly what you’re drinking. For clean, safe, great-tasting water that everyone can enjoy, the only practical solution is a whole-house water filter.
At KC’s 23 ½ Hour Plumbing, we’re the experts at helping you choose, install, and maintain the best type of home water filtration system for your needs. We’ve converted the supply of countless homes and businesses across the Coachella Valley—from Palm Springs to Indio and beyond—and provided them with amazing-quality water for every purpose. We can help you too!
The Problem with Tap Water
There are two major health concerns arising from a treated town water supply. The first is the chemicals added to the supply, like chlorine and chloramine, which are designed to treat the water and make it safe. While they do kill some unwanted bacteria in the supply, they also aren’t good for your body over the long term.
The second concern is that no matter how well a municipality treats the water, there’s always a high possibility for contaminants to enter through the pipes and affect the quality of water coming out of taps. Sediment, heavy metals (like mercury and lead), and other toxic chemicals can all find their way into water before it reaches your home and can quickly cause problems for you and your family.
As well as this, safety from bacteria isn’t always guaranteed by a municipal supply. In times of drought—all too frequent here in the desert—and during an outbreak, levels of bacteria can be too high for a water-processing plant to fully remove. This can result in potentially deadly bacteria and diseases, like Legionella, to slip through. Only with that second treatment by a water filter system can you be sure you’re safe.
This doesn’t just affect the water you drink, of course. It’s surprising how many homeowners drink bottled water because they are unhappy with the taste of their tap water, yet they don’t hesitate to cook a meal, clean their dishes, or brush their teeth with that exact same tap water. You can find contaminated water in every part of your home!
The Benefits of a Whole-House Water System
The key benefit from the proper installation of water filtration is avoiding all those problems we’ve just mentioned—in other words, to keep you and your loved ones safe and healthy. Good health also comes from drinking plenty of water!
Water is essential to life and, when a home water filtration system is installed, it makes water taste great and encourages all household members to drink more. In turn, drinking more clean water helps the body with:
- Proper brain function
- Getting nutrients to cells
- Balancing hormone levels
- And so much more!
Few people drink enough water every day, but if clean great-tasting water was available directly from every faucet in the home, instead of having to buy it from the shops or filter it manually, it would be much easier for people to drink the recommended amount. It’s much cheaper, too!
Finally, filtered water prolongs the life of your plumbing and all your appliances. Hard water, which contains high amounts of calcium and magnesium, builds up over time and will damage pipes, heating elements, and anywhere water is stored. A filtration system that also conditions the water and removes these minerals will save you a lot of money in repairs in the long term.
How Does a Whole House Water Filtration System Work?
Most people think of water filtration occurring directly at the tap, either with an under-sink system, faucet attachment, or filtration jug.
Generally, these use an activated carbon filter and, while they’re good for removing heavy metals and chlorine (and bad taste), they’re not always effective in removing organisms. Not only that, but they also provide a fairly low flow rate due to the size of the unit and the time it takes for the water to pass through the filter.
Whole house water filter systems are different. They can also use activated carbon filters, but they are attached to the main supply of water and are specifically designed to work with a high volume of water at the same time. Because they deal with water at the source, it removes a number of contaminants and additives before it reaches any part of the property.
In other words, anywhere water comes out—your bathroom, kitchen, or laundry—it will come out free of impurities like:
- Toxic chemicals & pesticides
- Heavy metals
However, removing the chlorine from the plumbing system does leave it susceptible to bacteria growth. Because of this, whole-house filter systems are usually also combined with a purification system that guards against bacteria and viruses, and a descaling system that reduces calcium levels.
Choosing a Commercial or Residential Water Filtration System
Every home and business is different and will naturally have different requirements for its water filter system. When deciding on the best solution for you, you’ll need to consider the following factors:
- Type of filtration and purification – Different types of filters and purifiers remove different unwanted elements from the water supply. Charcoal filters, reverse osmosis, and UV treatment are the three main methods, and they are often used in tandem, depending on what you’re concerned about.
- Size, volume, and flow rate – Choosing the size and throughput volume will depend on your daily usage and how many appliances you run on the property. If the water filter system flow rate is too low, it won’t support normal water pressure for showers, toilets, hot water heaters, etc.
- Compatibility – Your existing plumbing will need to be taken into account, including connections, access to the mains, and sufficient space to install a whole-house water filtration system.
Service life and maintenance – A standard carbon filter with backwash can run for up to 13 years while filtering normal municipal water. Filter life, and how often you’ll need to maintain the system, depends on the material quality and the quality of the water source.
Finding the Right Filtration for City Water
Since all city water contains at least some contaminants, it is important to have a plumber who works in your community. With our local knowledge, homeowners can select the system designed to remove the specific contaminants present in the area. In rural farm communities, for example, residents may see more chemicals in the water from pesticides. Having a whole-house filter system that targets and treats specific quality issues like this is crucial.
