One of the biggest complaints we get from Triad homeowners is water with a foul odor or taste coming from the city or well water that they use in their home.
When it comes to the water you drink and use in your home, there’s a long list of contaminants that you can find in your glass or bath water—from arsenic to volatile organic compounds, and everything in between.
These contaminants aren’t just bad for your health, they can also create foul smelling or tasting water and sluggish water-use appliances throughout your house. If you have a water softener system installed already, you know what a difference water treatment can make.
The good news is that a whole-house water filtration system can help address these tastes and odors. One misconception is that simply having a water softener is enough to give you clean tasting water, but water softeners and water filtration systems work very differently.
While softener systems remove minerals from point-of-entry water for softer skin and cleaner clothing, whole-house filtration systems are good for removing contaminants that can cause foul smells and tastes in your water.
When using reverse osmosis (RO), water is passed through semi-permeable membranes that filter out particles of minerals, contaminants, and even chemicals. This filtered water then enters your softener system or your house and becomes clean-smelling, good-tasting point-of-use water.
Not only is the Kinetico electricity free—which saves you energy and utility costs—it can also improve your water more efficiently, effectively, and economically without spikes in performance. Depending on your household water usage, your Kinetico system can be customized to treat a variety of water use issues.
Every Kinetico whole-house filter is customized to your home's unique water needs: Macrolite®, Kinetico exclusive ceramic filter, developed in conjunction with 3M screens oxidize iron, particulate matter, and other contaminants down to five microns.
While other solutions out there require multiple stages of expensive, cumbersome, high-maintenance equipment, a Kinetico Sulfur Guard System takes care of hydrogen sulfide problems all in a single, easily maintained unit. These filters offer a ready-to-go solution for treating the smell of rotten eggs in your water.
The Kinetico Arsenic Guard significantly reduces arsenic in water without added chemicals or maintenance. Arsenic is a deadly poison, and our water filters feature dual tanks that are maintenanced regularly by a Kinetico qualified professional—which makes this a hassle-free filtration solution.
If you already have a Kinetico water softener installed, these dechlorinators offer whole-house dechlorination in a convenient package that can be used to upgrade virtually any water softener. By adding it to your filtration system before water enters your softener, you can protect your investment from the harsh consequences of chlorinated water.
Use the Kinetico Areator to oxidize dissolved iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulfide to turn them into a solid form that can be filtered with a Kinetico whole-house filter. An aeration system is used to oxidize and convert these contaminants into a form that can be easily filtered out. Typically installed as one element in a whole-home water treatment system.
Kinetico Neutralizers raise the pH of acidic water to make it less corrosive and more appealing. The neutralizer has no timers or computers to set, adjust, repair, or replace, and combined backwash and service cycles reduce maintenance and pressure drop. This makes it a great turnkey solution to upgrade your filtration system.
