Water Filtration Systems

Natural water in Texas is renowned for its high levels of minerals and particles.

That’s why you need options to provide the cleanest, purest water for your family.

Jim’s Plumbing Now is very familiar with the water in Carrollton and surrounding areas. We know the typical contaminants and minerals that local homeowners struggle with. You can count on us to recommend the most effective solution for your water quality concerns — from filtration to softeners to conditioner. Call on us to test for and solve your poor water quality!

What’s In Your Water, Carrollton?

Most homeowners have no problem with the taste and smell of their water, but some might prefer to know exactly what’s coming out of their taps and showers.

Many naturally occurring particles flow with your water, but you could also be vulnerable to other pollutants entering the water.

Here are the most common elements in the municipal water systems of the Dallas-Fort Worth area:

  • Minerals
  • Sediment
  • Microorganisms
  • Pesticides
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Nitrates
  • Inorganic materials

If you’re worried about your home’s water quality, our team at Jim’s Plumbing Now can help. We perform thorough water quality tests that determine which particles are plaguing your home. With this information, we can make a better recommendation for the type of water filtration system your home needs.

Common Problems From Hard Water

If you live in the Carrollton area and you don’t have a water softener or water filtration system, you have likely experienced some of the problems associated with the area’s hard water. While hard water isn’t dangerous to your health, it can create some negative side effects that make running your home more difficult.

Here are some of the most common issues we see occur from hard water:

  • Hard water stains on surfaces prone to getting wet (tubs, glass shower doors, dishes, etc.)
  • Mineral buildup in pipes
  • Premature appliance replacement
  • Residue buildup in hair
  • Dry or irritated skin
  • Odd taste or feel

If you’ve experienced any of these symptoms, it’s time to have your water hardness tested. Our water softener services remove minerals like calcium and magnesium from your water, making every drop from your faucets, showers or even into your washing machine soft and clean. Stop suffering from hard water when we can help!

Water Softener vs. Water Conditioner

While water softeners and water conditioners are often used interchangeably, the two terms are not the same. A water softener is a system that completely removes the minerals like magnesium and calcium that cause hard water in the first place, using a process known as ion exchange.

On the other hand, a water conditioner system does not get rid of these particles, but it can neutralize them. Water conditioners create an electric field that alters the ions in the water and causes it to lose its ability to create limescale.

If you’re interested in simply preventing buildup inside your pipes and appliances, this system is highly effective.

What Are Reverse Osmosis Water Systems?

Reverse osmosis systems typically work in conjunction with regular water filters. They provide an extra layer of filtration, and they make your drinking water taste better. These systems work through a process called reverse osmosis.

This just means that water is pushed through a prefilter before it’s pushed through a semipermeable membrane to remove dissolved sediments. After that, it goes through one more filter that helps it taste better before going through your faucet.
