Santa Maria Water Filtration System Installation
Many people either don’t like the smell and taste of their tap water or think it’s unsafe to drink. And because of that, they spend hundreds of dollars a year on bottled water, which produces tons of plastic waste. If you’re one of those people, maybe it’s time to consider installing a whole home water filtration system.
Let’s look at some of the benefits.
Better Tasting Water
In most cases, the water you get from your municipal supplier is safe to drink, but water treatment plants use chemicals like chlorine to kill bacteria and other pathogens, which make the water taste funny; that’s why many homeowners use bottled water instead of drinking their tap water. Still, other homeowners have water with high mineral content, affecting taste.
Installing a water filter removes the offending chemicals and neutralizes the taste, making it more palatable.
You Have Old Plumbing
If your home was built before 1960, there’s a chance you have some lead or galvanized metal pipes. As we know, lead pipes are dangerous and should be replaced as soon as possible. However, you can protect yourself against lead poisoning by installing a multi-stage water filter.
Better Well Water
Many rural homeowners rely on well water as their primary water source. And while most private wells produce clean, healthy drinking water, the widespread use of pesticides and other chemicals has contaminated many private wells. Installing a reverse osmosis water filter goes a long way to removing pesticides, nitrates, toxins, and heavy metals from well water, making it healthier and safer.
Better Looking Clothes
Do your clothes look dingy and faded after only a few washes? The problem may not be your detergent but your water. Water with high mineral content causes clothes to fade more quickly; installing a water filter to remove the minerals results in brighter, longer-lasting clothes.
Another problem stemming from hard water is the stains it leaves behind in your sinks, tubs, and showers. If you’re sick of fighting the never-ending battle of scrubbing these stains away, consider installing a water filter to remove the minerals.
If you think you can benefit from a whole home water filtration system, call one of our plumbing experts for a consultation.

Our Reverse Osmosis Filtration Systems
Most experts agree that you should opt for a reverse osmosis system if you want the most effective home water filtration.
Reverse osmosis works by forcing unfiltered water through a semipermeable membrane to remove contaminants with fresh water coming out of your tap and brine as waste. Most reverse osmosis filters comprise three, four, or five stages, depending on your filtration needs.
Choosing a reverse osmosis filter is that you get a sediment filter to remove particles like dirt, dust, and rust; a carbon filter to reduce volatile organic compounds, such as chemicals; and a semipermeable membrane to remove the dissolved solids.
Reverse osmosis filters are effective at removing:
- Volatile organic compounds
- Herbicides and pesticides
