One of the jobs that we offer to homes in Clovis, NM is water treatment system installation (as well as repairs and maintenance as needed). Our team first performs water testing in a house, then offers a homeowner a rundown of the various impurities in the water coming from the municipal system or ground well. These impurities can include hard water minerals, pesticides, sulfur, heavy metals, and high acidity. Our water treatment experts can then offer solutions that will target these pollutants and clean the water.
The most common type of water treatment system is the water filter. In many cases, a basic water filter is all that’s necessary to prevent harmful pollutants from entering a home’s plumbing and reaching the fixtures. (Point-of-use filters, such as filters attached to individual faucets, are not as effective and they don’t protect the rest of the plumbing system.) There are a number of different types of filters, and in this post we are going to take a look at how the adsorption filter, which is the one most frequently installed him homes, does its job.
