Our condo had a major waterline break yesterday and two Plumbing Nerds came out to repair it. Doug and Eric worked very hard to fix it in a timely manner sometimes working in a pouring rain. These two were very polite and professional letting us know what to expect. I highly recommend Plumbing Nerds. - Jonnie M.

Different Types of Water Filters
There’s more than one type of whole-home water filtration system available on the market. Choose one that suits your needs and budget. Here are a few examples of the most popular systems:
This filtration system uses a series of activated carbon filters to remove contaminants from the water supply, making sure it tastes great and feels clean and fresh.
Reverse osmosis describes a method of water purification that moves water from a high-ion concentration tank to a low-ion concentration tank. During this process, contaminants are left behind in the original tank and what remains is water that’s safe for consumption.
Water softening is a treatment system for well water that removes minerals like calcium and magnesium. It results in water that helps preserve your plumbing appliances and is safer to use for washing and bathing.
What Kind of Maintenance Do Different Water Filtration Systems Require?
The level of maintenance required for your home’s whole house water filtration system depends on what type of system you decide to install. Some systems, like reverse osmosis systems and water distillation systems, have various parts that need to be regularly cleaned and/ or replaced, while carbon filters and ultraviolet water filters are easier to maintain, as all you have to do is clean/ replace the filter or change the ultraviolet bulb.
What Are PFAS and Why Are They Dangerous?
PFAS (perfluoroalkyl or poly-fluoroalkyl substances) are a group of man-made chemicals that have been used in a variety of industries for over 70 years. They are found in products such as non-stick cookware, water-repellent clothing, and stain-resistant fabrics. They are also used in firefighting foams and some food packaging.
PFAS can leach into drinking water supplies. Although they are not regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), some studies have linked PFAS exposure to various health concerns, including cancer, thyroid disease, fertility problems, and more. As a result, PFAS exposure is a growing concern for both public health officials and consumers.
While there are steps you can take to limit your exposure to PFAS, the only way to completely remove them from your drinking water is with whole home water filtration or water purification systems that specifically address PFAS contamination.
