Here in Omaha, our water is generally considered safe. According to the EPA, we haven’t had a single Safe Drinking Water Act violation in many years, and our tap water is considered drinkable even without a filter.
However, “safe” drinking water isn’t the same as healthy water—for your body or your pipes. And while the water here in Omaha may not contain high levels of harmful chemicals, it is known to carry trace amounts of arsenic, chlorine, fluoride, lead, and various acidic compounds.
How can you keep your family healthy and your pipes protected when corrosive chemicals flow through your home’s plumbing system? Consider installing a whole-home water filtration system—and stop the contamination before it starts!
A whole-home water filtration system stops pollutants at the source
Whole-home water filtration systems, installed and maintained by Burton, are simple to put in and offer broad protection against a comprehensive range of water contaminants and particles that enter your home through your main supply line.
The system works by running all the water that enters your home through a multi-stage, contaminant-crushing filtration process that goes something like this:
- Sediment filtration. In this stage, dirt, rust, and other particulate matter is removed from your water.
- Carbon filtration. Next, carbon filters trap the organic compounds in your water, including pesticides, herbicides, and volatile organic compounds.
- Osmosis membrane filtration. Inorganic compounds, like lead, arsenic, and heavy metals are trapped in this membrane.
- UV light filtration. Bacteria and viruses are no match for the crud-killing power of UV light.
These multiple filtering stages work together to clarify, sanitize, and purify your water—before it reaches your kitchen sink, washing machine, ice maker, and other water sources.
Whole-home water filters are an investment that pays for itself
When contaminants like acid, chlorine, and minerals are allowed to flow freely through your pipes, your home plumbing and appliances pay the price. Sediment deposits can build up in your pipes, causing clogs and blockages. And hard water in particular can damage small appliance parts, like pumps, valves, seals, and gaskets—causing premature wear and costly repairs.
Upgrading to a whole-home water filtration system comes with a number of benefits, like:
- Improved water quality: Contaminants like chlorine, lead, and heavy metals are reduced before they pass into your pipes—improving the taste, smell, and clarity of your water.
- Lower home maintenance costs: By filtering out the sediment and other particles from your plumbing—and reducing the acid and corrosive chemicals in your water—your whole-home filtration system can help protect you and your family from potential health risks caused by ingesting or bathing in contaminated water.
- Healthier environment: With clean and clear water, you can use fewer water bottles each year. That’s better for the planet and your wallet!
Fewer home maintenance calls, longer-lasting appliances, and the elimination of water bottles add up to serious savings year after year. And the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’re drinking and bathing in pure water? We believe that’s priceless.
