In 2019, a water quality study was conducted by over 120 journalists. They found that the lead in hundreds of thousands of Canadian households was problematic.
It was even worse than the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. Flint had a bad water quality problem back in 2018.
Canadians are more concerned about their health now more than ever, especially in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you don't have a water purification system already installed in your home, or if you do have one but aren't entirely certain of its effectiveness, you definitely need to keep reading below.
Choosing the Best Water Purification System
You may think there's not much to choose the best water purification system, but that's not the case. First, you need to figure out what the specific problem is with your water.
Then, you can choose from the different types of systems, and then you'll know which is the best water purification system for your home.
For instance, do you have hard water? Do you have a lead problem? Is there a lot of dirt, rust, or other sediments in your water? Perhaps you're dealing with metals and other organisms? Never fear; there's a system for each of these problems.
Different Types of Water Filtration Systems
Whatever the case may be in your household, we have a solution for you. Let's check out the different types of filters or systems you can use.
Reverse Osmosis Ultra-Filtrations Systems
A reverse osmosis system uses a semipermeable membrane to remove molecules, ions, chlorine, and large particles from your drinking water.
It also removes bacteria and other dissolved species from your water so it will taste fresh and clean every day. The Pro Line 50 uses a five-stage process that ensures the best quality drinking water.
Using carbon filters is another great way to ensure you've got the best water possible. Carbon filters help eliminate dirt, rust, and other sediments. They can also provide a better taste by eliminating odors and lead from your drinking water.
UV Purification and Germicidal Lamps
UV or Ultraviolet purification systems can disrupt the DNA of microorganisms. They run on a certain wavelength and emit UV light that breaks up and eliminates harmful organisms found in your drinking water.
You might hear these light waves, also called the Germicidal Spectrum or Germicidal Frequency. The SV 5Q UV Disinfection System is environmentally friendly and free of chemicals.
It's also cost-effective, easy to install, and it doesn't have a holding tank. Plus, it works 24/7 around the clock, so you can rest assured it's doing its job for you.
Water Softeners and Filters
Your water may have a lot of hard metals such as calcium and magnesium. If so, you'll want to use our Pentair valve systems to soften things up.
Softer water is better for cleaning dishes, and it can help your pipes and plumbing system have a longer life.
