Reverse Osmosis Services in Columbus, IN

Regardless of the complexity, we will always get your work done! Get reverse osmosis water purification services in Columbus, IN today. The Columbus, Indiana, municipal water system is reliable and provides area residents with a steady supply of clean water. However, even the most carefully monitored system cannot always prevent water from picking up contaminants as it is routed from treatment plants to homes. In fact, water supplies commonly absorb several types of impurities. Concerned homeowners can install external filtering equipment, but these systems are often inconvenient and require frequent filter changes. A reverse osmosis system is a much better alternative.

Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling has been serving Columbus and surrounding areas since we opened in 1969. For fifty years, we have remained committed to a customer-first policy. Our team is proud to provide exceptional craftsmanship and customer service. The company’s comprehensive menu of plumbing services makes us the go-to contractors for any plumbing needs. If you wonder how reverse osmosis in Columbus can benefit you, contact us and speak to one of Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling’s knowledgeable professionals.

Professional Reverse Osmosis Service

Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling technicians are highly trained, fully licensed and insured, and have years of experience. They are well-qualified to handle any situation that could arise while providing homeowners with reverse osmosis service.

A reverse osmosis system works by passing unfiltered water from a home’s main water supply through a filter chamber. The chamber includes a semipermeable membrane that has many tiny holes in it. The holes allow water molecules to pass through but prevent contaminants from entering. They also keep out particulates such as sand or dirt. Filtered water travels to the faucet, while leftover wastewater called brine leaves the chamber and drains using the home’s wastewater system.

Customers have the option of enhancing their reverse osmosis filters with filtration and water treatment equipment. For example, clients can opt for extra carbon filters for additional cleaning. They could also add water softening treatments that eradicate acidity in water.

Installing Your Filtration System

Columbus residents should depend on the Summers Plumbing Heating & Plumbing team to install reverse osmosis filtering systems. Homeowners have the option of handling their own installation, but chances are good they will need to call a plumber, who may have to make repairs before installing the filtration system.

There are several components in a reverse osmosis filtration system. It is critical that each one is installed in the correct orientation for the equipment to work properly. The systems include various connections as well as components. If connections are not installed properly, filters may leak. Our team of specialists ensures that every filtration system is correctly installed and provides a steady supply of fresh, healthy water.

Maintaining Your Reverse Osmosis Filter System

Homeowners can expect reverse osmosis filtration systems to last between ten and fifteen years. However, equipment needs to be maintained for it to last that long. Fortunately, Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling professionals will set up routine maintenance inspections to keep equipment in good working order. Customers can arrange for 6- or 12-month schedules. During visits, technicians change filters and make sure systems are functioning properly. We can also replace the osmotic membrane every two to four years to keep the filter working at peak capacity.

Advantages of Reverse Osmosis

Homeowners are often surprised to discover how many contaminants are in the water they use for drinking, cooking, bathing, and laundry. The following list includes a few of the impurities that a reverse osmosis filter can remove from water:

  • Arsenic
  • Chlorine
  • Fluoride
  • Lead
  • Salts
  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
  • Pyrogens (substances that could cause a fever)
  • Colloids (oil and fat-based molecules)

The system also filters out particulates that include dirt, sand, and sediment and stops them from traveling to the faucet. As a bonus, equipment will remove unpleasant odors or tastes present in a standard water supply.

Reverse osmosis filters are compact and fit under a sink without taking up much space. As a result, they are more efficient than filters attached to faucets or built into pitchers. In fact, their quality of water is on par with bottled water, which is not surprising since most bottled water is purified using reverse osmosis. Installing a reverse osmosis filtering system saves homeowners money on bottled water and reduces plastic waste.
