A part of the rapidly growing Charlotte metropolitan area, Monroe is a city and the county seat of Union County and where Superior Plumbing and Drains’ base of operations is located. Monroe was founded in 1843 and was named after US President James Monroe.
We’ve all heard the phrase “hard water,” but do you actually know what it is? “Hard water” is defined as water that contains calcium and magnesium. It can cause eczema, make your clothes a different hue, dry out your hair, clog up your fixtures, shorten the lifespan of your appliances, cause your fixtures to become clogged, and leave white spots on the surfaces of your dishes, preventing them from ever shining perfectly. The water in Monroe, North Carolina can be very hard, so calling us is an easy way to find out if you need a filter. Ion exchange, a technique used by softeners, gets rid of these minerals. Resin-like tiny plastic beads are present in every softener. Little salt molecules are bonded to this resin and will exchange with the minerals. Consider salt as a weaker magnet for the minerals calcium and magnesium; as the minerals pass, they push the salt aside and adhere to the resin, a process known as ion exchange. A washing is necessary to get rid of the minerals as the calcium and magnesium accumulate. Softeners need a salt-filled brine tank to restore the system after a predetermined amount of gallons have passed through. Due to the varied amounts of hardness in each water supply, each system needs to be restored at a different period. When your water is tested, the results will be shown in grains of hardness; the higher the grain, the more salt the system needs.
Measured in Grains Per Gallon (GPG)
Soft: 0 – 3.5 GPG
Moderate: 3.5 – 7 GPG
Hard: 7 – 10.5 GPG
Very Hard: 10.5 GPG +
The output valve is shut off during the rejuvenation process, which starts the water softener pouring extremely concentrated salt through the resin, pelting it to remove all of the magnesium and calcium and replace it with salt. In order to prevent the contents of the wash from harming the region outside, the leftovers are poured down a drain throughout this operation. Up until the brine tank needs to have its salt replenished, this procedure continues. This ensures that the water you receive from the softener is of the finest quality possible because only a small amount of salt—barely enough to perceive a difference in taste—is added to your water supply.
At this point, chemicals—from cleaning products to gasoline—are a part of our daily life. But do you want to put any of those chemicals in your body? Even if you use a Brita filter and only drink filtered water, your body still absorbs toxins like chlorine and other volatile organic compounds when you bathe because your skin acts like a sponge. In order to eliminate any dangerous germs in the system, the city of Monroe is mandated to administer chlorine to your water supply. You are protected by the addition of numerous additional chemicals to treat your water, but these chemicals may impart flavors and odors that you don’t want in your water. Carbon filters give you tap water with the same quality as bottled water by cleaning your system of any chemicals that could cause a taste or smell in the water. In order to remove VOCs from your water source, this filter uses active carbon, which acts as a sponge. The active carbon, which is visible when you zoom in, resembles a sponge in appearance but is considerably finer and capable of far more adsorption.

Humans are unaffected by an ultra violet filter, however little microbes are severely endangered. The bacteria or virus are killed by the UV light because it obliterates their DNA. Although the sun also emits some of this UV light, the atmosphere functions as a shield, blocking off most of it. 100% of the electricity can pass through with a UV filter, which is strong enough to quickly kill bacteria and viruses before they reach your home.
In order to keep sand-like particles from clogging your pipes, one of the most basic filters that can be added to your home is utilized on homes with well systems. This has a similar effect to a net, catching anything larger than a red blood cell (5 micron), which is around 30 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair.
Reverse Osmosis Filter
You may get the purest drinking water possible by using a reverse osmosis filter. Anything larger than a water molecule will not flow through its semi-permeable membrane, so they get rid of viruses, germs, salt, and chlorine. An RO filter’s time need is its only drawback. When you have a RO filter, the water is saved in a tank and used later. The sole restriction on RO filters is your financial capacity. A complete home filter can be purchased from some manufacturers that connects to tanks ranging from a 500-gallon holding tank that can be utilized whenever you are ready to a 2-gallon sink-mounted tank. Time and money are the main constraints; depending on the type you choose, these can easily range from less than $1000 to well over $10000. Always get advice from a professional before making a decision; we are here and ready to assist you!
