Understanding Your System: The First Step to Great Maintenance
Before you can adequately care for your water filtration system, you need to understand how it works. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average home water filtration system consists of several key components, including filters, membranes, and often a water softener. Each part plays a critical role in purifying your water; understanding these can help you maintain them better.
Regular Filter Replacement: The Non-Negotiable Rule
The heart of your water filtration system is its filter. The Water Quality Association (WQA) recommends replacing filters every 6-12 months, but this can vary based on your water usage and the specific system you have. Don’t wait until you notice a change in water taste or clarity – your system could be overworking itself by then. Regular filter changes keep everything running smoothly and your water tasting great. Some filters, if not changed soon enough, can harm your health. Quality Safe Water can help you identify these filter types and assist you with their replacement if needed.
Keep an Eye on the Water Softener
If your system includes a water softener, monitoring the salt levels is crucial. Low salt can mean your water is not adequately softened, leading to buildup in your pipes and appliances. Ensure the salt level is always at least half-full, and use the correct type of salt recommended for your specific water-softening system.
Professional Check-Ups: The Secret to Longevity
As your car needs regular servicing, so does your water filtration system. Annual professional check-ups can catch issues before they become problems. A technician can ensure your system is calibrated correctly and functioning at its best. Plus, regular professional maintenance can extend the lifespan of your system – a win-win!
