Water Filtration Systems
Whole house water conditioners are of several types. Each type serves a specific function. For example an iron filter removes ferrous iron but does not remove hardness etc. Choice of water conditioner depends on what needs to be removed. Depending on water quality, sometimes two or more water conditioners may need to be installed to filter the water. For example iron filter followed by water softener.
