Understanding How Water Purification Works, Henrietta, New York

When it comes to water purification techniques, there are a number of options you can choose for your home. Depending on what’s available in your area and what type of filter you’re looking for, you’ll be able to ensure that your family’s drinking water is safe, clean, and delicious to drink. 

The main types of filtration are disinfection, water softening, and purification. Disinfection is useful for killing bacteria and viruses, but does little to improve the taste of the water itself. Water softening removes hard contaminants like metals, calcium, and magnesium but does not remove organic matter. The purification method kills off microorganisms and removes sediment to produce clear, delicious, and healthy drinking water. For the safest and tastiest tap, purification is your best bet. 

water purificationAfter deciding which filtration system is right for you, your water purification company will install a system that uses a carbon pre-filter, a pass-through membrane cartridge, and a carbon post-filter. This system thoroughly removes sediment and contaminants that are unhealthy to drink and unpleasant to taste.

When it comes time to outfit your home with a reliable water filtration system, you can either choose to have one water treatment system for the entire house, or add a separate filter for each water source individually. Whole house systems are usually mounted where the water line enters the house, while point-of-use systems are placed beneath the sink.
