Improve Water Quality with Pro Water Filter Installation

The quality of the water we drink is critical to our health and well-being. However, many people depend on local water sources that can be contaminated with excess minerals, chemicals and other harmful substances. Even private wells can be vulnerable to contamination, especially in areas with heavy agricultural or industrial activity. A water filter is a convenient tool to help ensure that the water you drink is clean, healthy and free from pollutants.

At McLoughlin Plumbing Heating & Cooling, we sell and service a variety of water filter systems to keep clean and refreshing water easily accessible. Your water treatment specialist can help you decide if water filter installation in Springfield is right for your home or business.

There Are Several Types of Water Filters

There are various designs for water filter systems, each with their own benefits and drawbacks. Some of the most common types of water filters include:

  1. Activated Carbon Filters: These filters are the most common type of water filter, and for good reason. Activated carbon filters work by absorbing impurities in the water, including chlorine, pesticides and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This also improves the taste and smell. At the same time, activated carbon filters aren’t the best for extracting minerals or heavy metals.
  2. Reverse Osmosis Filters: Reverse osmosis filters are the way to go if you’re most concerned with eliminating minerals, heavy metals and other contaminants from their water. These filters work by forcing water through a semi-permeable membrane that removes impurities. The result is clean, fresh-tasting water. However, reverse osmosis filters can be expensive and require regular maintenance.
  3. Sodium Ion Exchange Filters: Taking advantage of natural ion exchange processes, special resin beads in such filter systems swap hard minerals for soluble salt molecules. They are popularly known as water softeners, and can be the ideal solution for hard water.
  4. Ultraviolet Light Filters: Through UV light’s sanitizing properties, UV light filters are great for combating microorganisms such as mold, bacteria and even viruses. UV rays affect the microbes’ DNA, stopping them from reproducing and virtually eliminating them from potable water.

Benefits of Using Water Filters

There are all kinds of perks to installing a quality water filter, so make sure all your concerns are addressed before proceeding with installation. That way you’ll know your chosen water filter is right for you. As soon as we’re through with installation, you can enjoy these benefits, including:


Better tasting, smelling water

A top reason to install a water filter is that it removes anything that can adversely affect the smell or taste of your water. Filters help clear out chlorine, sediments and other materials that leave behind bad tastes or odors.


Less contamination, promoting good health

Additionally, another reason to try a new water filter is that can almost totally eliminate pollution in your water. When installed by a professional, it should filter out bacteria, viruses, lead and other harmful substances from potable water.


More protection for your plumbing system

Contaminants and hard minerals could eventually clog up your property’s plumbing, so water filtration is another tool in your arsenal for keeping the plumbing as efficient as possible.


More sustainable than bottled water

Whole-house water filtration significantly reduces the number of plastic water bottles you or your family may need. Along with all the other perks, you can even decrease your carbon footprint and work toward a healthier planet.
