Water Treatment & Softeners

If you don’t get a water filter, you are a water filter.

 

Las Vegas water is flavored by where it comes from. About 90 % of the valley’s supply is pumped from Lake Mead, where it arrives by way of the silt-laden Colorado River. As a result, Las Vegas has some of the “hardest” water in the country as measured by its mineral content. There isn’t much the water district can do about that, but the utility’s annual report does offer this advice: “Maybe try it with a slice of lemon.”

 

If you are out of lemons, it is time to try something new. Fresh, Clean Water from the proven, trusted Focus Plumbing is the best way to get rid of those plastic bottles and get the water you love delicious right from the tap. Experience something new in your shower/bath as you exit silky smooth from soft water versus the hardest water in the land.

TYPES OF WATER FILTERS

DESCRIPTION

Activated Carbon Filters

Activated carbon filters attract and hold certain chemicals as water passes through them. They are available in carafe units, faucet-mounted filters and models mounted beneath the sink.

PROS

Reduces chlorine odor & taste; can be inexpensive

CONS

Doesn’t remove minerals associated with hardness; can require frequent filter changes; does not remove microbes

Reverse-Osmosis Filters

These systems use both a traditional (usually carbon) filter and a cellophane-like membrane to remove most organic and inorganic compounds. This is the only type of filter that will remove calcium and magnesium, the minerals that cause hard water. These filters are usually installed below the kitchen sink.

Removes minerals that cause hardness; highly effective
