We provide our customers with water filtration services throughout Vancouver, WA and surrounding communities to address this issue.

What Are the Benefits?
Today, people are becoming more mindful of the potential contaminants that find their way into your water supply. Whether you choose a system that filters your kitchen sink or a system that covers your entire home, our water filtration services come with multiple benefits including preserving the environment, reducing plumbing issues, improving the taste of the water, and saving money.
Common Contaminants Found in Water
It’s great that you want to filter your home’s water to better your health, but it’s important to know what contaminants you can find in your home water supply before doing so. This way, you’re educated in what to look for, helping you decipher if you’re ready for a water filtration system installation.
Some of the most common contaminants include:
- Microbial Contaminants (Microorganisms, Bacteria, Viruses, etc.)
A water filtration system can help significantly reduce how many contaminants get into your drink supply. Also, since that same water supplies your appliances with that they need to operate, do you really want those contaminants while washing your clothes or body? Of course not! We want to ensure that you feel safe about the water you are using to clean, drink, and shower in.
Water Filter Pitchers vs. Water Filtration Systems
If you’re just interested in water filters for drinking purposes and are thinking about just purchasing a water filter pitcher, here’s some pros and cons to that.
Pros: Water filter pitchers are easy to use, cheap, and do not require installation.
Cons: Some water filter pitchers will help with some contaminants, but not all. If you want thorough filtration, you’ll want to contact us about installing a system.
While these pitchers do an OK job with your drinking water, filtration systems will eliminate more contaminants, make your water taste much better, and if you choose to install one for your entire home, it’ll protect your clothing and yourself during your showers as well.
It’s also difficult to find a water pitcher that will really work. There are mixed reviews on every brand as well as videos on TikTok and other social media platforms showing the inconsistencies of these water filters.
How Does a Whole House Filtration System Work?
These systems aim to purify every ounce of water that enters your home. From the kitchen sink to your morning shower, this all-encompassing setup assures homeowners that their homes receive safe and clean water for their every need.
Our services in Vancouver, WA provide our customers with the peace of mind that they need regarding their water supply. We ensure the system installation goes smoothly and gets properly synced up with the rest of your home.
Will It Need Regular Maintenance?
Like other aspects of your home’s plumbing system, regular maintenance will keep your freshly installed filtration system working as smoothly as possible. Getting your unit a yearly checkup can help identify more serious problems before they affect your entire home. Our experienced plumbing experts can diagnose what’s wrong with your home’s water supply and figure out what it needs to function properly.
How Does it Help Save Money?
Do you buy bottled water for your family? Whether you buy packs of individual bottled water or buy the 5-gallon water cooler bottles, the cost adds up – especially if you have a family. With a filtration system, you can just fill your glass right from the tap water without having to worry about consuming organic contaminants, affecting your health.
Plus, not buying bottled water helps preserve our environment. Plastic waste is a large problem in our country and being able to eliminate your part in that helps more than you think!
It also helps you save money on soap. How? An advanced system works similar to a water softener and can remove the materials in the water that prevent the soap’s action. This will help the soap provide more lather, and you won’t need to use as much when you shower or wash your hands.
Reduces Potential Plumbing Issues
Minerals, heavy metals, chemicals, and pesticides can take a toll on your pipes as they cause corrosion and other issues. A water filtration system will eliminate these potentially damaging factors at the source so you can extend the life of your pipes, hot water heaters, dishwasher, washing machine, refrigerator with an ice maker, water dispenser, and garbage disposal.
Filtration systems can prevent issues with your plumbing system and appliances because they filter any impurities from the water. Installing a system in your home will protect and save you money on appliance repair bills.
