Types of Residential Water Filtration Systems
Water filtration systems reduce or eliminate harmful contaminants.
City Water Filtration Systems
City of Asheville water system contains chlorine to eliminate potential bacteria. While the amount of chlorine in the water is at or below EPA standards, it is higher than what is recommended by the World Health Organization for safety. That is why we recommend neutralizing the chlorine so you don’t consume excess chlorine or absorb it into your body.
City water filtration systems include:
- Sediment filtration
- Chlorine neutralization
- Chloramines neutralization
- Fluoride removal
- Heavy metals removal
- Pharmaceuticals removal
- Removal of VOCs and forever chemicals
- Reverse osmosis systems
About Asheville City Water
Asheville City water contains chlorine and sediments. City water has a pH level of 7 which is neutral, meaning it has the same amount of acids and alkalis. City water systems may include trace levels of lead and heavy metals due to dated pipes and infrastructure.
Well Water Filtration Systems
Well water systems are much different than city systems and need to be properly analyzed and professionally tested with industry-proven data laboratories. Blue Planet Plumbing performs a needs assessment to determine how you use water as well as a water sample test to determine water quality and the correct water filtration and treatment solution.
Well water filtration systems include:
- Acid neutralizers
- Water softeners
- Iron and lead removal systems
- Ferris iron removal systems
- Air injection systems for heavy iron
- Tannins removal
- Sediment removal systems
- UV light
- Reverse osmosis systems
- Copper removal systems
- Aluminum removal systems
About Asheville Area Well Water
There are many factors that determine well water quality and chemistry. Different areas of town have different aquifers, soil, and rock types – all of which contribute to unique water chemistry. Well water systems are more likely to have hard water issues, high levels of Magnesium, or bacteria. Additionally, well water may experience heavy scale, tannins, or pH issues.
The complicated chemistry of well water is why it’s so important to have a well-versed professional providing you with good solutions for your family and consumption purposes.
Water Filtration FAQs
How much do whole home water filtration systems cost?
The cost of a home water filtration system is based on household needs, household size, water demand, water quality issues, and the caliber of system you choose. Blue Planet Plumbing is happy to provide multiple options. City water filtration systems range from $799 to $3000. Lower cost systems, however, require annual cartridge replacement costs that can run around $400. Higher-cost systems are self-cleaning and do not require maintenance for around seven years.
Is a home water filtration system tax deductible?
You’ll need to check with your accountant to determine if you can deduct the cost of your water filtration system, but we have found these home improvement costs to be deductible for past clients.
How do whole home water filtration systems work?
Whole home water filtration systems work by removing pollutants and contaminants from your water supply by forcing the water through a carbon block, an activated carbon block, or a catalytic carbon block that will retain the pollutants and chemicals and allow only clean water to pass by into the home for consumption and use.
How are they installed?
First, a licensed plumber will separate the main plumbing system supply line and drain the water pressure. Next, we install the new system on the home’s main water supply before entering any fixtures.
How do I choose the right Home Water Filtration System?
Choose the right home plumbing filtration system by hiring a licensed, insured, and seasoned professional in the area of water chemistry. Always check for good reviews, references, and photos of past work.
We’re happy to offer all of the above, and we’d be happy to help you determine the best home water filtration for your needs.
