Water Treatment Systems in Katy & Houston, TX

We understand that you want the cleanest and best-tasting water possible for your family. Although there are national safety standards for water, these regulations do not consider taste. Fortunately, it is possible to achieve much cleaner water than the minimum requirements. Clean water is free from bacteria, toxins, and chemical pollutants. A water treatment system can improve not only taste but also eliminate odors and hard water, which can cause deposits on faucets and pipes that are difficult to remove. 

Whether you receive city water or have a well system, MET Plumbing & Air Conditioning can help you with your clean water needs. We offer a variety of water treatment systems to suit your situation, including the following five types:

  • Filtration Systems: A filtration system is an effective way to control the contents of your water. It can include mechanical, oxidizing, activated carbon, or neutralizing filters. These systems are primarily used for potable water, so they are suitable for homes with already acceptable drinking water.
  • Distillation: This process involves heating water until it turns into steam. As the steam condenses, it leaves behind foreign substances, minerals, and bacteria, making the water almost pure.
  • Reverse Osmosis: In this method, water is passed through a semi-permeable membrane that removes impurities such as metals, salts, minerals, organic chemicals, and microorganisms.
  • Ion Exchange (Water Softeners): This method reduces water hardness caused by excessive amounts of calcium and magnesium, making soaps work better in washing machines, and reducing buildup in pipes. However, these systems use salt, which increases the sodium levels in water. People with heart problems or a low-sodium diet should consult with their physician before installing one.
  • Disinfection: This process eliminates viruses, bacteria, and cysts found in water that can cause illness when ingested. Disinfection methods can include UV light or chlorination.
