Enhance Your Water Quality Water Filter Installation

High-quality potable water is an important part of protecting your health and well-being. However, many people rely on municipal water sources polluted with excess minerals, chemicals and other harmful substances. Even private wells can be vulnerable to contamination, especially in areas with heavy agricultural or industrial activity. A water filter helps ensure that your drinking water is always clean, healthy and contamination-free.

At Mark Allen, we sell and service a variety of water filter systems to keep your water supply clean and healthy. Your water treatment specialist can help you decide if water filter installation in Bethel Park would benefit you.

Water Filter Systems Can Come in Several Different Designs

There are various designs for water filter systems, each with their own benefits and drawbacks. Popular designs for water filters include:

  1. Activated Carbon Filters: Activated carbon filters are the most popular choice. Activated carbon filters work by absorbing impurities in the water, including chlorine, pesticides and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). They also improve the taste and odor of the water. At the same time, activated carbon filters aren’t the best for extracting minerals or heavy metals.
  2. Reverse Osmosis Filters: Reverse osmosis filters are a popular choice for homeowners who want to remove minerals, heavy metals and other contaminants from their water. These filters work by forcing water through a semi-permeable membrane that removes impurities. The result is clean, fresh-tasting water. However, reverse osmosis filters can be expensive and require regular maintenance.
  3. Sodium Ion Exchange Filters: Taking advantage of natural ion exchange processes, special resin beads in such filter systems swap hard minerals for soluble salt molecules. They are usually called water softeners, and can be the ideal solution for hard water.
  4. Ultraviolet Light Filters: With UV light’s sanitation capabilities, such filters are particularly useful against microorganisms such as mold, bacteria and even viruses. UV rays destroy the microbes’ DNA, stopping them from reproducing and virtually eliminating them from potable water.

Benefits of Using Water Filters

You deserve to enjoy the most benefits from your water filter, so voice any potential concerns before starting installation. That way you’ll know your chosen water filter is right for you. Once installation is complete, you can enjoy these benefits, like:


Better tasting, smelling water

A key benefit of any water filter is that it keeps potable water smelling and tasting great. Filters can remove the chlorine, sediments and other substances that can affect the taste and smell of your water.


Less contamination, supporting your family's health

Additionally, another reason to try a new water filter is that can almost totally eliminate pollution in your water. With the right filter design for your needs, it will take care of bacteria, viruses, lead and other harmful substances that make you sick.


Protection for the rest of your plumbing

Contaminants and hard minerals may eventually impact the efficiency of your plumbing, so water filtration is an important part of any strategy to keep plumbing efficiency as high as possible.


More environmentally friendly than bottled water

A whole-house filter model substantially lowers the number of plastic water bottles you or your family may need. In addition to other benefits, you can even decrease your carbon footprint and work toward a healthier planet.
