The problems with water quality in your home could be solved with something as simple as installing a water sediment filter. Sediment is the most common problem found in water. It can be in many forms from sand, dirt, iron, manganese, or any other debris that may have got into the water supply. Many forms of sediment are so small that they cannot be seen by merely looking at the water. While the water may look clear this sediment can build up in pipes, water heaters, toilet tanks, and faucets. Over time this buildup can cause damage to many plumbing fixtures and appliances. Removing sediment before it enters your home’s plumbing is the best way to protect these items. Before installing any type of filtration it is important to determine the amount and the type of sediment in addition to any other water quality issues that need to be corrected. In many cases one type of water sediment filter in North Georgia can resolve numerous water quality issues so a full water analysis is recommended. At a minimum we recommend that every home install a cartridge filter. Pleated or string wound water sediment filters with a pore size between 20 and 50 micron work best for stopping average sediment.
