Orange County Water Treatment
The water filtration experts at Bill Metzger Plumbing offer a wide variety of water treatment options for the people of Orange County.
You may be asking yourself, “Why do I need a water filter?” Municipal water contains sediment from the pipes & plumbing, chemicals, and all sorts of impurities that affect the taste and smell of your water. Installing a water filtration system through Bill Metzger Plumbing will give you healthy, clean Orange County drinking water. And when water smells and tastes better, you’ll find yourself drinking more water. Here, we provide helpful information about all things water.
4 Main Types of Water Treatment Systems
In an effort to help you help you choose the new system which will best fit your needs, we have provided information about the following four types of water purification and water filtration systems.
Reverse Osmosis: Is a process for the reduction of dissolved ions (such as salts) from water in which pressure is employed to force liquid (water) through a semi-permeable membrane, which will transmit the water but reject most other dissolved materials. When forced against the membrane surface, the dissolved materials are repelled, while the water molecules are diffused through the membrane molecule by molecule, forming purer water on the other side. Find out more on reverse osmosis installation or learn more about RO systems.
Ultraviolet: Sunlight has long since been known to kill micro-organisms. The rays from the sun contain the UV *spectrum used in Ultraviolet Water Treatment Systems – although at much lower intensities. It is also referred to as either the Germicidal Spectrum or Frequency. The frequency used in killing micro-organisms is 254 nanometers (nm). The UV lamps used are designed specifically to have the highest amount of UV energy at this frequency.
Filtration: A process in which water passes through a water system that may include one or more filters for the purpose of removing turbidity, taste, color, iron or odor. The design can be loose media tank-type systems or cartridge devices. In general the process may include mechanical, adsorptive, neutralizing and catalyst/oxidizing filters.
Distillation: Is the process in which a liquid such as water is converted by heating, into a vapor state, and the vapor cooled and condensed to a liquid state and collected. It is the process of removing the liquid (water) from its constituents or contaminants; as compared to other processes where contaminants are removed from the water (liquid). Distilled water is water that has been purified by passing through one or more evaporation –condensation cycles and contains essentially no dissolved solids. Distillation requires a lot of energy to produce a small amount of purified water and we do not carry distillation systems.
Whether it’s reverse osmosis, ultraviolet filtration, granular activated carbon or distillation – Bill Metzger Plumbing can install any type of system that you want.
