Do You Trust Your Drinking Water?

Water Purification & Filtration Atlas Plumbing DallasUnder the heading of Water purification and filtration; Atlas Plumbing in Dallas may set the standard for your home, business, institution, and manufacturing facility. Water is vital in our day to day living. We use it to drink, cook with, and clean with. And, when you want the best for your family; clean water is at the top of that list. There is no better way to impact the health of each person in the world really than to be able to provide clean water to home where you live.

Where does the water in your home comes from? Is it from one of the many resavoirs in the Dallas metroplex? This all differs on where you live, but tap water is always treated with chemicals to eliminate excessive minerals, bacteria and other types of contaminants like prescription medicines. Some of these chemicals, however, if you knew about them you may not want to put them in your body when you reach for a glass of water. If you’re ready to take control of what’s coming into your home, business, commercial or industrial facility; then we want you to see several options for a few water purification options for your home, business, commercial setting or large facility.

In 75 years of service here in the Dallas Ft. Worth Metroplex area, Atlas Plumbing believes that installing a home water filtration system isn’t a DIY project to take on. Plumbing is our speciality, and being able to contact a professional plumbing contractor to handle all your water filtration needs. Atlas is the best plumber in Dallas.

Most of us are comfortable with drinking water directly from the tap in any location where we are. Depending on where you live, you could be ingesting harmful materials. You might not be able to taste or see it, but your tap water can contain chemicals, bacteria, excess minerals, prescription drugs residue, and debris more from your municipality.

Education dictates an awareness and knowledge of any given topic. The EPA provides us a list about some contaminates you may find in water that may be helpful in considering what type of water filtration you need to have in your area.

The following are general categories of drinking water contaminants and examples of each:

  • Physical contaminants primarily impact the physical appearance or other physical properties of water. Examples of physical contaminants are sediment or organic material suspended in the water of lakes, rivers and streams from soil erosion.
  • Chemical contaminants are elements or compounds. These contaminants may be naturally occurring or man-made. Examples of chemical contaminants include nitrogen, bleach, salts, pesticides, metals, toxins produced by bacteria, and human or animal drugs.
  • Biological contaminants are organisms in water. They are also referred to as microbes or microbiological contaminants. Examples of biological or microbial contaminants include bacteria, viruses, protozoan, and parasites.
  • Radiological contaminants are chemical elements with an unbalanced number of protons and neutrons resulting in unstable atoms that can emit ionizing radiation. Examples of radiological contaminants include cesium, plutonium and uranium.

Water Filtration System Costs

One of the best ways to eliminate unwanted chemicals and contaminants from the water is installing and maintaing a filtration system. This helps to rid tap water of impurities and can provide you and your family with peace of mind that the water you’re drinking is safe. Obtaining a report from the Dallas Water Utility or in the city where you live is also a way to complete the exact nature of what is coming into your home, business, or public facility. Let's begin a discussion point of the many ways to treat tap water at home. Statistics say the average cost to install a water treatment depend on location specifics and any questions you may have with respect to filtration will be answered easily by giving us a call after you review what products can be used.

Pitcher & Faucet Filtration Systems

The most common and least expensive option for your home is a pitcher or faucet filtration system like Brita. These use charcoal filters to remove contaminants from tap water. The pitcher must be refilled when used while other methods involve a simple faucet attachment. The filters must also be changed regularly.

The big drawback to this system is that doesn't always remove all the chemicals and contaminates from the water. It may reduce the amount of added chlorine and may improve the taste. These tend to be the budget-friendly options for homeowners, with systems costing between $30 and $100 as a first investment, but will require more filter changes and purchases over time.

Reverse Osmosis Filtration System

If your decision is to install a permeant filtration solution, some homeowners opt for a reverse osmosis system. This system includes a tank that is typically situated under the sink. While osmosis is a naturally occurring process, this reverse osmosis process requires a pump that is used to reverse the effects. Water molecules will pass through the semi-permeable membrane and contaminates stay behind. It can remove up to 99% of salts, bacteria and other pollutants in water, however, it also has been known to remove vital minerals water carry that our body needs. Additionally, most systems include various filters to remove other impurities. Atlas does recommend that you have a plumbing professional take care of this. We are here to serve you in that installation of a reverse osmosis system to guarantee it works properly. Reverse Osmosis ystem is a low maintenance item and will result in better tasting water. It’s a great option for those looking to easily improve their water quality.

Carbon Block Water Filters

Another common option is a carbon block water filter, typically sitting near the sink on the countertop. This is a safe and natural way to filter water, and still retain all the healthy minerals. This affordable option will also remove any bad tastes from tap water. However, if fluoride is a possible concern, you should know that it will not remove this from the water. You’ll also have to actively fill up this container, though some models will carry enough for a week’s worth of water, depending on the size of your family. Atlas is happy to discuss particulars about this option

Entire Home Water Filtration System

Learning about the harmful impurities tap water can contain, you may decide that all the water entering your home should be filtered. This ensures your ongoing peace of mind as you shower, cook and clean and that it’s only the best water coming into your home. Many water filtration systems are installed directly to the water tank, so there is no need to worry about bulky top-of-counter systems. While there are many styles available depending on your water purification needs, most offer a multi-filter system. This allows multiple chemicals and bacteria to get caught as the water flows through each chamber.

Unlike the above options, an entire home water filtration system needs to be considered an investment and must be installed by a plumbing professional. However, it has less long-term maintenance outside of routine filter replacements and could improve the value of your home.

The discovery process about water filtration is usually a surprise. Once you know there may be impurities and pollution lurking in tap water, it can be a shock if you are uprepared for it's contents. But no need to fear, with the latest advancements in water filtration technology, you can have a system that fits your family’s needs and gives you peace of mind.

Atlas Plumbing arranged for a subcontractor, who does tunneling, to came out and dig an 18 foot tunnel under the patio and under the house. Other plumbing companies wanted to tear up the patio. Atlas replaced the broken line and then trenched out to the city sewer and laid a new pipe. After the inspector approved the work, they did an excellent job of packing the dirt back into the tunnel and covered the trench.
