Water Filtration Systems
Did you know that bottled water may actually be less safe than tap water?
Research shows that tap and bottled water contain harmful toxins such as lead, mercury, and VOC’s, which are organic chemicals like herbicides, pesticides, and industrial solvents. All of these pollutants are proven to have negative long-term health effects.
Plumbers protect the health of the nation. It is our privilege to provide our customers with Water Filtration systems in their home that provides a heathier and safer water source.
To help you determine the best water filter for your home or apartment we recommend visiting Aquafana’s comprehensive guide. Learn what questions to ask before you start looking, the difference between each type of filter and, ultimately, how to figure out what kind of water filter you need.
WHAT DOES A WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM REMOVE?
To figure out what contaminants are present in your water Metric Plumbing recommends you check your municipality’s mandatory Consumer Confidence Reports to get a good idea of what to look for, or enter your zip code into the EWG’s Tap Water Database https://www.ewg.org/tapwater/ to really hone in on what you need to filter out.
Once you know the contaminants you want to remove, look for a system that uses the right kind of water filtration media.
There are several different types of contaminant-reducing media:
Activated Carbon: Reduces pharmaceuticals, herbicides, pesticides, and VOCs.
Catalytic Carbon: Targets chlorine and chloramines.
Ion-Exchange or Reverse Osmosis: Eliminates heavy metals like lead and mercury and remove fluoride.
Absolute Sub-Micron Mechanical Filtration: Captures asbestos and chlorine resistant cysts like cryptosporidium and giardia.
Allow Metric Plumbing the privilege to bring you a safer water source within your home. Not only will it benefit your health it will drastically save on plastic pollution. We love environmentally friendly options!
