Which Water Treatment is best for My Home?

Rockford Plumbers

Are you concerned with the water quality in your Rockford home? At Grand Valley Plumbing, our Rockford plumbing contractors offer our water conditioning services to improve the taste and safety of your drinking water.

Water is such an essential part of our lives, used for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and bathing. However, trying to find the best water treatment for your home can be tricky. This is why we have decided to offer a guide that can help you make the best water filtration decision for both you and your family.

Filtration System

Like you may have already assumed, a water filtration system is responsible for filtering impurities out of your household water. This is usually accomplished through the following means:

  • Physical Barrier
  • Chemical Process
  • Biological Process

Depending on the unique situation in your home, you may want to consider your options. For example, physical barriers are best for solid contaminants. If you are unsure on which filtration system will be best for your home, feel free to call our Rockford plumbing company for further advice.

Water Softeners

Water softeners are perfect for households that suffer from hard water. Hard water simply refers to the presence of certain minerals in your water, such as calcium and magnesium. While these minerals are not dangerous for your health, they can have a damaging effect on your home’s plumbing.

Certain regions in the United States are more likely to have hard water than others. If your home has issues with hard water, please do not hesitate to call the local plumbing professionals you can depend on. Water softening methods usually use potassium or sodium ions to replace the ions that are making your water “hard”. At Grand Valley Plumbing, we always work efficiently to best serve the needs of the client.

Distillation System

If your community has ever had a water emergency, you might know that sometimes governmental authorities will urge citizens to boil their water before using it. Distillation systems work in much of the same way. To purify your water, a distillation system will first boil the water.

By doing this, the solid impurities will remain behind while the purified water will escape out the top in the form of steam. Once the steam has evacuated the container, it travels to another container where it condenses back into water that can be used for you and your family.


Depending on the water treatment strategy, disinfectant can be either a physical or chemical process. For both processes, pathogenic microorganisms are deactivated or killed, making your drinking water more palatable and safe. Heat, electronic radiation, and ultraviolet light are all examples of physical disinfectant strategies. Chemical processes include chlorine dioxide, ozone, and chlorine.
