Local Water Conditioning Services in CT
Water goes a long way before reaching our home plumbing systems. Most of our drinking water comes from natural sources like lakes and rivers, and before making it to the public water supply, it must be treated with chlorine to kill bacteria. Chlorine in the public water supply is a good thing; it’s the best way to safely clean massive amounts of water. But once chlorine has done its job for the public water supply, you can remove it from your home’s plumbing system with professional conditioning services from Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Andover.

Water Softening Services
Water softening is the process of removing Totally Dissolved Solids (TDS) from water via ion exchange. Simply put, ion exchange removes solid materials like magnesium, calcium, and iron from your water. “Soft” water will help to extend the lifespan of your plumbing appliances.
Water Filtration Services
Even if you don’t mind the presence of chlorine and TDS in the water you use for bathing and cleaning, your drinking water is a completely different story. The same goes for cooking water. A water filtration system mounted on your kitchen faucet will purify any water you plan on ingesting. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Andover handles faucet repair and installation, so let us know if you want a mounted filter.
Water Filtration Systems Explained
The two most common ways to purify water are carbon absorption and reverse osmosis membranes.
- Carbon absorption uses activated carbon to eliminate chemicals, germs, and gasses from your drinking water to enhance its taste and smell. This is the method used by most home refrigerator filtration systems as well as the popular Brita water filter. This is a safe, easy, and effective way to purify water for drinking and cooking.
- Reverse osmosis membranes are used by most bottled water companies because it is the most practical way to remove virtually all contaminants from large volumes of water. The membrane is essentially your filtration system’s bouncer, as it only allows clean drinking water into the system and forces germs and solid materials to stay behind.
