A whole house water filtration system is a POE (point of entry) system installed at the main water line to treat water for the entire home. This system would take out debris and disinfect the water as it comes into the house. Whole house filters allow a much higher flow rate and are designed to treat water for general usage such as cleaning, bathing, laundry applications and drinking.
Bear's Plumbing in Spring, TX uses the locally manufactured products of Waterworld USA. Waterworld USA manufactures a wide variety of water treatment systems including:
- Reverse osmosis
- Water conditioning
- Water Softeners
- Scale prevention systems
Water Softening is a technique that serves the removal of the ions that cause the water to be hard, in most cases calcium and magnesium ions. Iron ions may also be removed during softening. A water softener is a unit that is used to soften water, by removing the minerals that cause the water to be hard.
Having a water softener prevents build-up of minerals (scale) on the inside of pipes, fixtures, and hot water heaters. It lengthens the life of some appliances, reduces or prevents mineral spots on glassware, and prevents or reduces soap films and detergent curds in sinks, bathtubs, and washing machines.
Reverse Osmosis is a water purification system used to improve water for drinking, cooking and other important uses.
Reverse osmosis is a POU (point of use) system installed under the kitchen sink to treat water for drinking and cooking purposes. It removes foreign contaminants, solid substances, large molecules and minerals from water by using pressure to force water through a membrane, which leaves behind impurities in a solution that many refer to as brine or backwash. This solution leaves through a waste line that connects to your home's drainpipe, so the removed contaminants go right down the drain.
