Water Filtration systems
Are you concerned about toxins and chemicals in your water? Gulfview Plumbing offers the latest cutting-edge water filtration system technology for a whole house filtration system.
You may not realize it, but a water filtration system pays for itself once you stop buying bottled water and start using refillable water bottles. Most bottled water is simply unfiltered tap water, meaning there is no difference between it and the water coming out of your kitchen sink. Investing in a water filtration system will not only improve the taste, feel, and smell of your water, but it will also help reduce your consumption of bottled water. In the end, you'll save money and protect your family's health.

But Is It Really Necessary to Filter My Water?
The quality of water we use for drinking, bathing, and cooking can have a significant impact on our health. Unfortunately, Pinellas County has water quality issues that can cause illness, make water taste bad, and damage plumbing systems. At Gulfview Plumbing and Water Treatment, we understand the importance of filtering your water, so we work with local homeowners to provide them with viable solutions for all their whole house filter needs. Not only can our kidneys and liver be affected by the impurities in our water, but our hair, skin, and nails can also suffer. This can lead to dehydration and other health issues, including changes in mood. Installing a whole house water filtration system is the best way to ensure that you are drinking, bathing, and cooking with the cleanest, safest water possible.
Let’s Do the Math: Whole House Water Filter Systems Pay for Themselves
Investing in a water purification system can pay for itself, especially if your family regularly purchases bottled water and other beverages.
Calculate your expenses: Bottled water purchased on-the-go usually costs around $1.25 for 20 ounces, which is 6.25 cents per ounce. That translates to $8 per gallon. Note that many bottled water companies simply bottle tap water, meaning you would be paying more than necessary.
Even if you buy in bulk, you still pay more per ounce than necessary. Additionally, disposable bottled water leads to landfill waste and recycling costs, as well as contributing to the global plastic pollution problem. (To learn more about the escalating plastic problem in the ocean, click here. There is currently a garbage patch of plastic the size of Texas in the ocean—and it's only one of many.) Instead of sending your family to school and work with disposable bottled water, invest in a water filtration system and BPA-free reusable water bottles. Encourage healthy habits by replacing high calorie sodas with filtered water, and help protect your family and the environment while saving money.
Most whole house water filter systems last for ten years, meaning that if you have been buying bottled or canned beverages, the system will pay for itself in half that time, resulting in pure savings and pure water thereafter. It is definitely worth the investment!
Types of Home Water Filtration Systems
Before deciding on a home water filtration system, you must first choose the type of filter that best suits your needs. Carbon filters, reverse osmosis systems, and water softeners are some of the most popular options.
Carbon filters: Carbon filters use layers of activated charcoal to trap impurities as water passes through them, resulting in clean, great-tasting water that is safe for use in the home.
Reverse Osmosis: This systems use a membrane to separate bacteria and other impurities from the water, leaving it perfectly clean.
Water Softeners: Water Softeners use a tank filled with specialized salts to neutralize minerals such as calcium and magnesium, making the water crisp and safe for use in homes that rely on wells.
