    Types of Water Filters

    More than four out of 10 Americans use some kind of home water treatment unit, according to the Water Quality Association. Some filter their water to improve taste, while others do it due to health concerns.

    There are a few different water filters that can help keep your system clean and allow clean water. For a residential system, the best option is most likely a screen filter. Water passes through a screen similar to the way an air filter works. The screen captures debris, while letting clean water flow through. For commercial or industrial systems, there are more efficient options. A centrifugal separator spins the water, so that debris sinks down to the bottom. A microsand filter can filter out contaminants up to 50 times smaller than an ordinary screen filter. By choosing the right water filtration system for you, your system will stay healthy and efficient for years to come.

    We can help you choose a system that works with your needs and budget.
