Which Water Filter Works Best For My Home? 

Perhaps you’re wondering how to purify water at home or the benefits of a home filtration system. If that’s the case, you need to know about the four primary processes used to filter water: ion exchange, reverse osmosis, steam distillation, and activated carbon filters. All these water filtration systems can help you purify water in your home. Consult Narrow Path Plumbing to find out which filter would be best for your home:

  • Ion exchange: These filters are used for softening hard water. This filter would work best for your home if you live in a location with heavy metals and hard water. The ion exchange job is to soften and filter the hard water out of your home by releasing ions, for example, sodium. During this step, you will see a difference in the taste and quality of your water. It isn’t just great for drinking water; you will also see a substantial change in your laundry.

  • Reverse Osmosis: This is another excellent water treatment process that withdraws unwanted chemicals from your water and uses pressure to move water molecules through a filter. The contaminated water is filtered and washed away during this process, leaving pure, delicious drinking water.

  • Steam Distillation: This filter creates distilled water by boiling water and then reducing the collected steam back into a liquid. This method removes impurities and minerals from the water.

  • Activated Carbon: This is the most commonly used household water filtration system. An activated carbon filter treats water by using a process called adsorption. Because the water passes through the filter, it acts like a sponge and absorbs the contaminants in the water.

 Is Water Filtration Important For My Home?

We live in a country where water filtration is standard, and we have access to bottled water in stores all over. Regardless, it doesn’t mean that because you have bottled water, your home is safe as it could be. The tap water in your home isn’t used only for drinking, it’s used for your pets, showers, laundry, and more. A home water filtration system shields your home by removing impurities that are not healthy for your household; examples are chemicals, chlorine, metals, debris, and more!

How Safe Is Your Water?

It is vital to ensure the water you are running in your home is pure and safe for you, your pets, and your family. So, to wrap things up, how is the quality of your home?

We had a leak in our basement on a Sunday evening and Narrow Path Plumbing sent out Terry ASAP! He quickly found the leak, repaired it, checked all faucets to ensure good pressure. He cleaned everything up and it was like he was never even here. I appreciate this company sending out someone late on a Sunday and also doing such a great, fast and professional job!! Great job Narrow Path Plumbing!!

Mike & Terry remodeled 2 of my bathrooms along with the drywall finisher and did a beautiful job. Had multiple leaky shut off valves replaced & a kitchen faucet replaced. Had lines run so I could move my laundry up out of my basement & poor Mike had to run wiring through my attic on a 90 degree day. I was so worried he would have a heat stroke but he never complained once. Also had a whole house filter replaced & a valve replaced on my hot water tank by another plumber whose name I can't remember but they all were polite and did professional work.

Josh S cleaned a tankless hot water system, repaired two toilets, and unclogged a drain in a little over an hour. He was professional, listened carefully, and was very personable. We have never had a bad experience with Narrow Path, and we highly recommend them.
