Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a clean water purification system for my home or business?
Before making a decision on a water treatment system for your home or business, talk to the Water Solution experts, Chicago Water Pros, you’ll be glad you did!
That depends on your quality standards of “good enough.” Most communities in Illinois meet Primary Drinking Water Standards as established by the EPA. However, your water can still contain impurities you can’t taste or smell – impurities that can be potentially harmful. Chicago Water Pros can take good water and turn it into great tasting healthy water that meets much stricter health and safety standards.
In the time that water leaves the plant and arrives at your home, it can pick up substances that become a part of the water you receive. Sediment and odors can also join the mixture. A Chicago Water Pros home water filtration system provides a highly effective barrier against these undesirable pollutants.
With a CWP home water treatment system you won’t have to buy or lug expensive bottled water. You’ll use less soaps, shampoos, detergents and household cleaners. Clothes will look brighter, whiter and wear better. And because most mineral deposits are filtered out, your home appliances will last longer. Best of all, your family’s overall quality of life will be improved – something you can’t really put a price on.
Hard water is removed by a process called “ion exchange.” Hardness-causing particles and debris are positively charged. The water runs through CWP’s resin system, which has millions of negatively charged sites. As the water flows past these sites, calcium, iron and magnesium attach to the sites and are “bumped off.”
Very little, thanks to CWP’s water filtration systems. In most cases, you’ll find less sodium in a glass of CWP water than in a slice of bread. If your doctor recommends a sodium-free diet, CWP’s reverse osmosis water system can reduce the total sodium content to near zero.
Yes. Activated carbon filtration is recommended by the EPA for use in municipal water treatment plants.
No. However, if your pH needs adjustment, your Chicago Water Pros expert can recommend an efficient solution.
