Adding a filter to your home’s water system is a great idea if you know your water isn’t clean. When deciding on the right water filter for your situation, one of the most important things to consider is exactly how much sediment is in your water. So let's look at how we can figure out how much sediment is in your home’s water and the type of filter you’ll need to remove it.
Are you a homeowner who thinks there’s something not quite right with your water, but not totally sure what that may be. Do you have poor water quality and fear you may have a contaminant, but not sure how to find out what it is? Fortunately, there are a number of different tests available for finding out what’s in the water. Let's talk about why you want to test your home’s water as well as the different testing options and what you can do if you find out there is a contaminant in your water and how Rusco can help you out.
High levels of nitrates can cause birth defects, increase the risk for certain kinds of cancer, and cause thyroid disease among other things. There are several ways that nitrates can end up in your well water. The best way to filter nitrates out of your water is with a reverse osmosis or RO system. These systems have several steps to them and Rusco can help with a few of them.
When it comes to a Rusco filter, there are a few things you’ll want to consider before implementing one into your system. Determining what size filter you’ll need based on the inlet and outlet, as well as factoring in the number of GPM running through your system is something that should be taken into consideration. You’ll also want to know whether or not the filter is needed for hot water or cold water application. Depending on where the filter will be placed within your system, you may need to select one that doesn’t have a T-body and instead select an option with an L-body or a combo body. Figuring out what micron size you need for your filter screen is also something important to consider.
