Types of Water Filtration Products

At Haferman Water Conditioning, we believe everyone should have access to clean and pure drinking water. And this is why we specialize in water filtration in Minnetonka and the surrounding areas. So what are some popular water filtration methods? Here is a brief rundown of the water filtration products and systems that we sell and install, plus their many advantages.

Reverse Osmosis

Water is pushed through a semi-permeable membrane. That membrane then blocks the particles that are larger than water molecules from getting through and keeps them from remaining in your water. These types of water filtration systems can remove a variety of toxins like arsenic, nitrates, fluoride and many more.

These types of water filtration systems are best used for drinking and cooking water only.

UV Filtration

One of the newer types of water filtration products available, UV filtration systems use ultraviolet radiation to treat your water. UV destroys a variety of bacteria and other toxins, and it can disinfect your water without using heat or any chemical additives.

These water filtration systems do not require a great deal of maintenance, although you should have them looked at and inspected regularly to ensure they are still working as they are supposed to be.

Water Softeners

Water softeners are a popular type of water filtration system that use an ion exchange process that lowers the levels of calcium, magnesium, barium and other contaminants that can build up and cause harm to your water-using appliances.

Also low-maintenance, water softeners should be looked at and inspected on a regular basis to make sure everything is functioning properly.

Dechlorinators

Generally used to help upgrade water softeners, dechlorinators use activated carbon to absorb the sometimes bad odors or tastes that come from chlorinated water. These water filtration systems help reduce the deterioration of rubber seals in your water-using fixtures or appliances, and they can also help with dry hair and skin issues that can result from too much chlorine in your water.

These are only a handful of the water filtration systems that are on the market today. If you want more details on these or any others, contact us at Haferman Water Conditioning and we can discuss these options in further detail with you and help you determine which one is best for your wants and needs.
