Bayonet Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning - Water Treatment Systems

The modern home is filled to the brim with systems designed to maintain comfortable temperatures and keep unwanted contaminants out of the air, but homeowners often forget or simply ignore the dangers that may lurk in their water. Yet, water treatment is one of the easiest and most effective ways to keep you and your family safe from unwanted pathogens.

However choosing a good water treatment system isn’t always easy. There are many options on the market, ranging in size and quality and the level of their filtration and purification. So, if you’re interested in learning more about home water treatment or you need someone to install and maintain your system, call Bayonet Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning a call. Our water quality experts install, maintain and repair water treatment systems in homes all over the Tampa area, and they have the knowledge and tools needed to make sure your system is operating as intended.

Water Quality Issues & Water Testing

The first thing to consider is the type of water treatment system your home needs. Spending hundreds of dollars on multiple treatment systems would be a waste if the only issue your water supply had was hardness or acidity. On the flip side, if you only have a countertop filter in your kitchen, but your water has high levels of magnesium and iron and possible traces of arsenic, you need something much more powerful to thoroughly protect your family.

To determine what type of water treatment system is needed in your home, your water should be tested. We provide complete water testing, including checks for pH balance, hardness, iron levels, lead, arsenic, nitrates and bacteria contaminants. The average person obviously doesn’t know what to test for but there are some signs you can watch for, including discoloration of your fixtures, a change in the smell or taste of your water, or an increase in residue in your shower or sinks. If any of these things happens, call us right away for full water supply testing.

Types of Water Treatment Systems

Once we determine what’s in your water, we can begin to review your water treatment system options. The simplest water filtration systems use charcoal to remove sediment and debris that build up in your pipes or supply. When the only thing in your water worth noting is a high level of iron, debris or sediment from underground pipes, a simple drinking filter may be plenty.

However, if your water is hard or has a very low pH balance, it needs to be treated more thoroughly. Water softeners are often used in conjunction with a reverse osmosis treatment device to ensure salinity doesn’t start to build up in your drinking water – a dangerous development if you’re not careful. Reverse osmosis is the most effective and thorough water treatment system on the market and will remove almost all potential contaminants.

In some cases, specialty cartridges may be necessary for things like nitrates and arsenic or sulfur. These cartridges are usually integrated into your current water filtration system but must be checked frequently and calibrated to your specific contaminant levels to avoid over treatment.
