Having clean water throughout your home isn’t luxury, it’s a necessity. If you’ve been concerned about the quality of your water, or just want the ability to have the cleanest water possible in your home, you may want to consider the installation of a water filtration system. The experts at BZ Dependable Plumbing & Heating, Inc., can install just about any water filtration system around, but the one we specialize in is the whole house Krystal Klear water filtration system. This system is unlike any other water filtration product available for homes and businesses, and offers a number of benefits that you may not get with other types of whole home water filtration systems.
What Is the Krystal Klear Water Filtration System?
The Krystal Klear water filtration system uses two proprietary components to thoroughly clean your home’s water: a coconut-shell granular activated carbon and KDF-55. The device itself is about the height of a water tank, although much more narrow, and contains an electronic meter at the top, a distributor tube that runs from top to bottom, the KDF-55 filter, the granular carbon and at the bottom of the tank, the patented CyclonicRinse technology.
How Does It Work?
Water enters the tank through an inlet valve and is filtered through the KDF-55 layer and then the carbon layer. The two filters create a dual-action system that uses both absorption and oxidation to remove harmful contaminants from your water. The newly-filtered water at the bottom of the tank is then circulated back into your home’s water supply via the distributor tube.
There are a number of benefits that the Krystal Klear water filtration system offers your home:
- Removes VOCs (volatile organic compounds), chemicals, arsenic, poisons, pesticides, herbicides, solvents and MTBE from your home’s water
- Removes heavy metals such as nickel, copper, mercury and aluminum
- KDF-55 filter inhibits bacterial growth in the filter media
- Doesn’t need a brine tank
- Guaranteed no maintenance for the first 5 years thanks to the CyclonicRinse technology
