Water Filtration Systems
Book An Appointment
Water filtration systems use filters to remove contaminants from water. Water filters may be built into a pitcher; mounted to a faucet, on a countertop, or under the sink; built into a refrigerator, or attached to the house’s water line. Since no single filter can remove every undesirable substance, water filtration systems often use a series of multiple filters.
A water filter’s effectiveness is inversely related to the size of its pores. Microfiltration filters (.1 micron) very effectively remove protozoa, and somewhat effectively remove bacteria. Ultrafiltration filters (.01 micron) are even more effective at removing protozoa and bacteria, and somewhat effectively remove viruses. Nanofiltration filters (.001 micron) have the same capacity as ultrafiltration filters–and very effectively remove viruses, but are only moderately effective in removing chemicals.
Water filtration can also be part of the multi-step process of water purification, which also includes reverse osmosis. Water filtration removes particles; reverse osmosis can remove smaller particles, plus minerals or other substances dissolved in the water.

Matt was incredibly personal and helpful throughout the entire process. He fixed the issue, kept true to his word on price and kept us in the loop throughout the project! Sometimes “plumber talk” can be over your head and he was patient and educated us on the issue and the repairs so we felt comfortable with the investment! All around incredible and will continue to use him in the future!
Matt was very knowledgeable, courteous, respectful of property, and thorough. I really appreciated his patience and understanding when there was a need to explain services required & reason for said repairs. He addressed all of our questions and offered some we hadn't thought of yet. I WILL be recommending Matt and his team to my family and friends.
Matt made it to my home when it was my turn in his long list of clients during this past Texas freeze. His main concern was making sure I finally had water to my house after 5 days. He capped off the broken line so that I could have water again, a second leak was found and he repaired that also and turn on the water. Thank you again Matt.
