As a leading Maryland water quality company, we carry a variety of water treatment and conditioning systems. Here is a list of the different types of and what they do:
- Mechanical filters trap sediment and other fine particles before they make it into your drinking water.
- Chlorination, Ozonation, and UV Light disinfects your water to kill bacteria.
- Activated carbon filters absorb impurities and remove unpleasant odors and tastes.
- Oxidizing filters bind with iron, hydrogen sulfide, and manganese, making your water softer and tastier.
- Neutralizing filters balance water’s pH, solve acidity problems, and reduce high levels of lead. They help protect and prevent pipe and faucet deterioration which causes pinhole leaks.
- Reverse osmosis separates impurities from the water by pushing water through a semi-permeable membrane with the use of pressure.
- Distillation systems remove water from impurities instead of the other way around by turning water into vapor and then collecting that vapor.
- Water softening systems soften water by removing calcium, magnesium, and iron.
