21 Nov Considering Flow Rate When Installing a Water Filtration System
Whether you recently purchased a new home or you have been living in a home for many years, you may discover that the quality of your well water is not as good as it once was or as good as you would like it to be. While you do have the option to drill a new well or to make repairs to the well, sometimes your best option is to simply install a proper filtering system.
Addressing Water Issues with a Filtering System
While a filtering system can go a long way toward addressing water issues, it is important to note that there is not just one treatment system that can be used to address every type of water contaminant. While some treatment systems can eliminate several different types of pollutants, you may have to use a multi-pronged approach to address the issues at your home. For this reason, your water will have to be tested before you can determine the treatment system that is best for your home.
Choosing Your Filtering System
After you test your water, you may discover that there are several different impurities in your water. While the impurities may not be dangerous, they may affect the taste, smell or texture of your water. Once you have determined the type of filtration system you need, you need to consider other factors such as the minimum flow rate. If you install a water treatment system that requires more gallons per minute than the well pump produces, for example, you will not get the desired results. Therefore, it is essential to ensure the two systems are properly aligned.
