Water Treatment Options For Your Home


When it comes to plumbing, you probably think immediately of drains, pipes, faucets, and wrenches. You might know that plumbers service water-related items in your home such as your water heater.

But did you know that addressing issues with water quality is another skill in a plumber’s toolbox?

When you think about it, it makes sense that plumbers would be concerned about the quality of your water. That’s because problems with your water can cause damage to your plumbing system and appliances.

Even more concerning is the fact that poor water quality can contribute to issues with your health and your home comfort.

Learn about the various water treatment options that are available in your home. A plumber in Clifton, NJ can check the quality of your water and recommend a system to improve it if needed.

Reverse Osmosis

A whole house reverse osmosis system works by pushing water through a semipermeable membrane to remove any contaminants and impurities. This is the same technology that a desalination plant uses to turn saltwater into freshwater. Reverse osmosis systems can remove lead, pesticides, fluoride, pharmaceuticals, bacteria, and arsenic. 

The main benefit of this system is that it’ll make your drinking water–and your cooking!–taste a lot better. Hard water deposits on your faucets, showers, and countertops will be eliminated.

Your washing machine and dishwasher will do a much better job of getting your clothes and dishes clean. A reverse osmosis system will also protect your plumbing and appliances from the effects of hard water.

Water Softeners

A whole house water softener system tackles the hard water that is found in much of New Jersey. Hard water has too much calcium and magnesium which is apparent in your tap water. It’ll taste faintly metallic and although these minerals aren’t harmful, they don’t taste great and can affect your cooking.

It’s difficult for soap to dissolve in hard water. That’s why homes with hard water have crusty, hard water deposits on shower heads, faucets, and countertops that are aesthetically unappealing. It’ll also cause soap scum buildup in your showers, tubs, and sinks. Your clothes won’t feel as clean because the laundry detergent can’t dissolve as well as it should. That’s also the reason for those spots on your dishes. 

UV Water Purifiers

UV water treatment systems utilize ultraviolet light. These simple systems are installed at the apex of your household water supply. This allows the water treatment system to purify your entire water supply through the use of ultraviolet light.

Your home’s water is protected from bacterial contaminants and other dangers even if the civic water system were to become compromised. However, UV water purifiers can only kill off microbiological pollutants such as viruses and bacteria. Inorganic solids and chemicals are not removed with this type of system.
