How Cold Weather Impacts Water Filtration Systems , Hiawassee, Georgia

During winter, the cold weather could cause issues with your water filtration system. According to the team at Chem Free Pure Water Systems in Hiawassee, GA, when water drops below 40°F, there’s a greater likelihood of filtration casings freezing and cracking. Below, Towns County’s water treatment specialists share a brief guide to what the low temperatures mean for your water filtration system and how to address the issues. 

A Brief Guide to Cold Weather’s Impact on Your Water Filtration System

Leaving Faucets Running Helps Keep Water Above 40°F

Hiawassee-Georgia-water-filtrationDuring winter, homeowners are often advised by the city or utility company to keep faucets running 24/7. Allowing for a constant trickle through water lines prevents the liquid from dropping below 40°F. When the water is colder than that, it could potentially cause the water line casings to crack, resulting in extensive damage to your plumbing system. Polypropylene and other plastics used for water filtration line housings are particularly vulnerable to freezing when water drops below 40°F.  

Low Temperatures Could Reduce Water Pressure

Although a steady stream through water lines will keep the liquid above 40°F, some consumers with reverse osmosis water filtration systems notice a drop in flow pressure when it’s cold outside. Removing the water filter cartridges could alleviate pressure issues, as it will help speed up the rate water flows through the system.
