If you want the water of your home to be as safe to drink as possible, Plumber Near Me is on your side. Our technicians are trained in the most accurate testing methods and licensed to provide comprehensive water filtration services throughout the Central Texas region, from inspection, to repair, to full water system installation.
Choosing the Right Water Filtration System for Your Home
If your water tests positive for contaminants, or if you just don’t want to take the risk, you have many options. Several different water filtration systems are available to consumers, each with strengths and weaknesses.
Plumber Near Me stays up to date on the latest technology. We can help you select the filtration system that is right for your home, and then perform the installation to the same exacting standards as all our plumbing services.
To keep your water safe, consider the following water treatment systems:
Popular in urban environments like downtown Austin, these filters exploit the element carbon to naturally absorb chlorine, chloramines, and specific organic contaminants like trihalomethane and paradichlorobenzene. The downside is that the filters become saturated quickly and must be replaced.
If you want the treatment method used to produce bottled water, Reverse Osmosis is a great go-to. Water is forced through a holding tank at a specific pressure, removing solids, minerals, and other contaminants. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has certified Reverse Osmosis as effective to remove lead from water. The resulting fluid has little sodium and tastes great.
Ultraviolet Disinfection (UV)
High-energy ultraviolet light is used to kill bacteria, mold, viruses, and other contaminants susceptible to UV radiation. UV treatment has the advantage of being quick and leaving the water tasting great. This makes sense, since you are not treating it with chemicals, just shining it with light.
Microbiological Water Filter
This eco-friendly filtration system removes harmful bacteria, viruses, and other microbes from water without producing any wastewater. These systems can be expanded to meet a home or building’s water needs.
Water Softener Services
“Hard water” refers to water with minerals added. Some, like fluoride or calcium, are considered harmless — or at least not proven harmful. Hard water can also cause undue wear and tear on your plumbing, stain dishes and bathtubs, wear out clothing in the wash, and build up sediments in pipes and washing machines that lead to clogs, cracks, leaks, and breakdowns.
The public utility water supply in Buda and Austin tends to be mineral-heavy. Austin’s water was tested mineral-rich at 80 parts per million (PPM) in 2017. Anything over 60 PPM is considered “hard water.”
To protect your pipes, property, and family, you may want to consider a residential water softener system. Plumber Near Me is pleased to provide a full suite of water softener services, including selection, installation, service, inspection, and repair.
What to Expect from Our Filtration and Water Softener Services
Our expert plumbers begin by testing your water. Discovering what is actually in it is a necessary first step to understanding what system will filter it most effectively.
Home testing kits are widely available to assess your water for contaminants on a DIY basis. However, these kits are notoriously inaccurate. Plumber Near Me partners with state-of-the-art local laboratories and can offer a full-spectrum test of your tap water for minerals, microbes, metals, and other contaminants.
We strive to distinguish ourselves in the Buda and Austin communities with a commitment to the health and well-being of our neighbors, and a passion for providing the highest quality water filtration services possible. We take personal responsibility to leave your plumbing, water quality, and personal property better than when we found it. The job is not done until you are fully satisfied.
