For billions of years, the water cycle has sustained life on earth. The world is constantly changing, however, and man's environment has impacted water purity. Water sources everywhere have become increasingly more polluted, requiring some level of treatment before we can safely drink it or bathe in it.
Our plumbing technicians are also water purification specialists. We can assess your system and recommend options ranging from whole home walter filtration to water conditioning systems and under-sink drinking water units.

Worldwide, impure water is the number one cause of death, but we can be thankful that the United States generally has some of the safest water in the world. Our municipalities are mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to chemically treat our water supply, limiting bacteria levels.
The use of chlorine and other chemicals in our water plays an important role in keeping water safe and bacteria-free. Although these chemicals are required for immediate safety purposes, they have an effect on our long-term health. They should be removed prior to drinking or bathing.
Our municipalities are responsible for adding chemicals, but you have the option of leaving those chemicals in or taking them out. The hardness of your water and certain minerals may damage your appliances and fixtures.
Softening your water and using whole-house carbon filtration is the total solution.
