Water Filtration Systems in Butler County, PA

Does your water in Butler County seem “wrong” lately? Maybe it smells bad, or has the distinct taste of chlorine? If you answered “yes” to any of those, it could be time for water filtration. Whether you get your water from a private well or from the municipal supply, there’s no telling what you have in your water without a proper water test. But if that water test determines that you do have a problem, then you may need to address it with a whole-house water filter.

When we say water filtration, we’re not talking about those filtered pitchers that you can pick up from the local drug or department store. We’re talking about a whole-house solution that will fix your water problems for good. Fortunately, the master plumbers of Kennihan Plumbing & Heating, Inc. have over 75 years of experience in plumbing—and that includes whole-house water filter installation. Our goal is to keep your home safe, healthy, comfortable, and energy efficient, and we believe keeping your water clean helps fulfill that goal! Contact us today to learn more about our water filtration systems.

Active Carbon Filters

Water filters use active carbon to remove and reduce contaminants. They’re extremely effective at removing dozens of chemicals, including chlorine, as well as those used in herbicides and pesticides. Often these contaminants will enter your water after they’ve left the municipal supply.

Even then, the municipal supply will often add chlorine to help purify your water, but there are times where the concentrations of chlorine can be excessive. The types of carbon filters you install will depend on which contaminants are plaguing your water. Aside from needing to have those filters replaced every three months, active carbon filters are very low maintenance.

Reverse Osmosis Filters

These filters have a membrane that allows nothing but water to pass through. Any molecules bigger than the water will not pass through, and they’ll be moved into a receptacle for removal. Reverse osmosis systems are especially good at removing the contaminants that active carbon can’t, such as bacteria, microbes, and non-dissolvable minerals.

The individual filters that make up a reverse osmosis system should be replaced every six to nine month, whereas the membrane should only need replacement about every 2 to 3 years. If your reverse osmosis system is regularly serviced and maintained as needed, it can last as long as fifteen years.
