Our Water Systems

There are two basic categories of water filter systems for home use. Point of Entry (POE) and Point of Use (POU). Point of entry systems are usually what you hear advertised as Full House Drinking Water Systems, or Water Softeners. POE treatment systems treat the water to every faucet and fixture in the home enabling you to enjoy cleaner, odor-free water and reduce stains on clothes, sinks and fixtures, in addition to minimizing corrosion in pipes and appliances, because of the quantity of water they treat, and because of compatibility issues with the plumbing system in a home POE systems have a limited ability to Purify water.   POU water filter systems are designed to take the water to a higher level of purity for consumption, they provide purified water for drinking and cooking at the point of use, typically the kitchen sink.

Point of Use Systems – Pure Drinking Water

Point-of-use water purification system, provide the same or better quality clean tasting water as bottled water while saving you money. It also helps avoid the use of plastic water bottles and the associated health risks.

A point of use water treatment systems provide clean water for drinking, cooking, humidifiers and other household needs. It can be as simple as a treatment unit that sits on your counter top that you manually operate or you can have the convenience of an automated system installed under your sink or in the garage with clean drinking water piped to a separate faucet mounted at your sink.

Distilled Water System

Our distilled water systems are the standard setters in the water industry and provide the purest, cleanest water available. These units will remove all impurities and sanitize the water against any disease causing organisms. With minimal maintenance you can expect our distiller systems to provide peak treatment performance for a life time without any loss in quality or water wastage.

How distillation works:

Distillation follows Mother Nature’s process of purification. It involves evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. This allows for all impurities and contaminations to be left behind, so all that you are left with is the pure, clean, crisp, and refreshing water in its natural state.

Reverse Osmosis (RO) System

Our reverse osmosis (RO) systems remove some impurities and improve the taste of the water. Reverse osmosis treatment systems used in the home require a waste stream that amounts to about three gallons of reject water for every one gallon of treated water produced. The quality of water produced degrades over time requiring regular filter changes to maintain treatment performance.

Maintenance– Moderate

Environmentally Friendly– **

How Reverse Osmosis Works:

RO works by passing the water over a membrane designed to allow water molecules through and stop anything larger. It is a barrier system much like a net or a screen door. Pressure is used to drive the water past the porous membrane blocking most impurities from passing through. Learn more here (link to the Learning Center).

Point of Entry Systems – (AKA Full House systems)

A point of entry water treatment system treats all of the water consumed within the home for drinking, cooking, bathing and washing. Typically a piping loop is installed during construction or plumbing retrofits are made to exclude treatment of any water used at the outside hose bibs or for the landscape irrigation system. These systems are designed improve water quality by removing specific constituents such as hardness and toxic chemicals including disinfectants (i.e. chlorine) and generally improve taste and odor problems.

Water Softener System

Our water softener systems include automated controllers to assure a continuous use of soft water in your home without interruptions. Soft water means improved soap and detergent performance – less detergent, more suds. Your clothes will be cleaner and brighter, and they’ll look new longer. Your hair will have greater shine and manageability. Dishes and glassware will sparkle, and soap scum and lime scale will be a thing of the past. You’ll realize substantial savings: an extended life for your appliances; savings on soap, shampoo, and laundry detergent; and significant savings of time and effort cleaning soap scum and hard water deposits in the bathrooms and kitchen.

Whole House Water Filter System

Whole house filtration systems are designed primarily to remove sediment and manmade chemicals. Sediment removal includes dirt, soil sediments, rust particles and other particulates thereby protecting your plumbing system from damage and clogging due to sediment build-up. Removal of manmade chemicals can include chlorine, chloramines, disinfection by-products (trihalomethanes – THMs), volatile organic compounds, and a wide range of other common water contaminants that can adversely affect your health and contribute to general poor clarity, bad tastes and odors. Occasionally a filtration system will be designed for removal of specific compounds such as iron or manganese that can occur in a domestic well.
