Water Treatment Equipment Installation & Repair in the Midlands

Water treatment is essential to keeping your water safe to drink, use in your appliances, and bathe in. The water treatment system in your home is made up of several different components, each with a specific purpose. If you are concerned about the quality of your water or have noticed any abnormal coloration, taste, or smell, it may be time to have your system checked out by a reliable plumber. Our team at Miller & Sons Plumbing can inspect your water treatment system and make any necessary repairs.

If you are concerned about the quality of your water, give us a call at (803) 353-5594 to request an inspection of your water treatment system.

Water Treatment System Components

The components of your water treatment system include:

  • Filters
  • Disinfection
  • Treatment
  • Storage

These components are used to remove impurities and bacteria from the water in order to make it safe to use. The filter is the first line of defense in the water treatment system. It is designed to trap sediment, dirt, and other particles before they reach the other components of the system. If your water is cloudy, it is probably due to sediment that has built up in your filter.

Once the water has been filtered, it will move to the disinfection component of the system. This is where the water is treated with a chemical to kill bacteria, algae, and other microorganisms. If you have well water, it is important to have your water disinfected to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and other organisms. If you are concerned about the quality of your well water, have it tested by a professional to determine if it is contaminated.

The water will then be stored in a tank, where it can be used by your appliances and fixtures. If you notice that your water has a metallic taste, it may be due to the buildup of minerals in the storage tank.

Finally, the water will be distributed throughout your home through pipes and faucets. If you notice that your water has a strange color, it may be due to the buildup of rust or minerals in your pipes.

Testing Your Water Treatment System

Your water treatment system will need to be tested periodically to ensure that it is working properly. You can test your water by using a water quality test kit. These kits are easy to use, and the results will indicate whether your water has too many minerals, bacteria, or other contaminants. If your water tests positive for contaminants, it may be time to have your water treatment system serviced or repaired by a professional plumber.

If you are concerned about the quality of your water, call our team at Miller & Sons Plumbing. We can test your water and make any necessary repairs to your water treatment system.

Water Softener Installation & Repair from Experienced Plumbers

Water softeners are designed to remove minerals from water, making it feel softer on your skin and helping prevent mineral buildup in your pipes and fixtures. At Miller & Sons Plumbing, we offer water softener installation and repair services. We are a family-owned and -operated business that has been serving the community for more than two decades.

How Water Softeners Work

Water softeners use a process called ion exchange to remove minerals from water. In ion exchange, a resin is used to attract and hold onto minerals in water. Over time, the resin becomes saturated with minerals and needs to be replaced.

Water softener installation typically involves installing the water softener unit, connecting it to your plumbing system, and testing it to make sure it's working properly. We can also help you choose the right system for your needs, whether you need a whole-house water softener or a point-of-entry system.

Types of Water Softeners

There are two main types of water softeners: Non-electric and electric. Non-electric water softeners use a system called "brine," which is a solution of water and salt, to help the water softener regenerate resin. An electric water softener uses an electrical field to help regenerate the resin. An advantage of electric water softeners is that they are more powerful and can handle larger amounts of water.

The type of water softener you need depends on your specific needs. Our plumbers can help you decide what type of system is best for you.

Why You Need Water Softener Systems

Many people install water softener systems to prevent mineral buildup in their pipes and fixtures. Minerals like calcium and magnesium can build up in your pipes and cause problems, including leaking, low water pressure, and discolored water. Water softener systems can also help prevent soap scum and soap buildup in your bathtubs and showers. If you have a well system, a water softener can help prevent the buildup of minerals in your well. In addition to preventing mineral buildup, water softener systems remove hard water minerals that can cause skin irritation and dry hair!

Water Purification & Filtration System Installation

Water purification and filtration systems help provide cleaner, better-tasting water for drinking, cooking, bathing, and more. These systems remove impurities and contaminants from your water supply, helping to protect your health and the health of your family.

If you are interested in a water filtration or purification system, contactour experienced plumbers at (803) 353-5594 for more information.

Types of Water Purification Systems

There are many different types of water purification and filtration systems. These include whole-house water filters, point-of-use filters, reverse osmosis systems, ultraviolet light systems, and more. Each system is designed to remove different types of contaminants from your water supply.

Some of the most common types of water purification systems include:

  • Whole-house water filters: Whole-house water filters are installed on the main water line that enters your home. They remove a wide range of contaminants from your water supply, including minerals, chemicals, bacteria, viruses, and more. Whole-house water filters are the most effective and reliable way to purify your water supply.
  • Point-of-use filters: Point-of-use filters are installed right where you need filtered water, such as your kitchen sink or bathtub. These filters are more cost-effective than whole-house filters, since you only need to install one filter instead of filtering your entire water supply. However, point-of-use filters may not remove all contaminants from your water supply.
  • Reverse osmosis systems: Reverse osmosis systems use pressure to force water through a semi-permeable membrane. This membrane allows water to pass through but blocks most types of contaminants. Reverse osmosis systems are very effective at removing many types of minerals, chemicals, bacteria, and other impurities from your water supply.
  • Ultraviolet light systems: Ultraviolet light systems use UV light to destroy bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms in your water supply. 
  • Water filtration systems: Water filtration systems are designed to remove small particles from your water supply. These systems use a variety of media, such as carbon, charcoal, sand, and other elements, to filter your water supply. Water filtration systems are not as effective at removing larger particles and contaminants from your water supply.

Benefits of Water Purification Systems

A water purification system can offer numerous benefits for you and your family. Water purification systems can help improve the taste and quality of your water, which can help improve your overall health. Water purification systems can also help you save money and protect the environment, since you may not have to buy bottled water anymore.
