4 Tips for Using Your Water Treatment System, Wappinger, New York

If you have a water treatment system to deal with hard or contaminated water, it’s important to know how to use it correctly. This way, you can keep your system running efficiently and effectively for clean, healthy drinking water. Here are a few tips to make sure you’re getting the most out of your water purification equipment.

How to Use Your Water Treatment System

1. Choose the Right Equipment

Not every water filter does the same work. Some are rated for higher or lower capacity, while some may not be able to treat contaminants which others handle easily. Have your water tested before you make your selection, and talk to your provider about the right choice for your needs.

2. Follow the Change Schedule

Depending on your filtration system, you may need to periodically change a filter or add salt or other chemicals to the system. Make sure to read the manufacturer’s instructions, and mark your calendar or set a notification on your phone to remind you to perform this maintenance.

3. Know What the Filter Can Handle

Water TreatmentYour tap water quality may change over time, so have it tested again periodically. Watch out for any changes in the type or quantity of contaminants, and know what your water treatment system can handle so you know if it’s time to make a switch.

4. Disinfect the Filter

Over time, if organic matter is coming through your tap, your water filter may become contaminated. Make sure to read the cleaning instructions from the manufacturer, and follow them both when you first install the system, and periodically after that.
