Your plumbing system can deliver water from your municipal supply directly to your faucets and fixtures, however the water isn’t always the best of quality. In fact, municipal water often features mineral deposits like calcium or magnesium, substances like chlorine or phosphorus, and plenty of other things. While you may not be able to detect these things by simply at your water, you can certainly see the effects: deposits, dry skin, ruined clothes out of the wash, and even strange tastes in your food.
Fortunately, you don’t have to settle for mediocre-quality water that comes into your home: you can improve it using several different devices and technologies, each of which can be installed by a Minneapolis plumber. On this blog, we’ll take a look at three of the technologies we offer, including discussing what they do, how they work, and some pros and cons of each of them.
The Millennium Water Softener
The Millennium Water Softener is a water softening solution that helps negate and filter out substances that cause hard water, such as calcium, magnesium, chlorine, and much more. The system consists of two parts: a tank and a salt reservoir. The tank, which is located outside your home, features an easy-to-read and use display that allows you to fine-tune your water softening.
The salt reservoir is quick and simple to refill. In fact, you can even have new salt delivered directly to your home on a regular basis so you don’t have to worry about heading to your local hardware store, lifting the heavy bags, and then carrying them back to your home. If you’re sick of struggling with hard water or having to deal with unsightly water spots on everything from your dishes to your car windows, a Millennium water softener system may be the solution for you.
Reverse Osmosis Filters
Reverse osmosis is the process that filters water by allowing to pass through a semipermeable membrane, removing contaminants and flushing them away. The membrane is so small that it can even remove contaminants on the ion or molecular scale as well as larger contaminants. These systems are remarkable in that they require no regular maintenance to operate, rare filter cartridges replacements, operate on regular water pressure alone, and can remove nearly any type of contaminant.
Reverse osmosis filtration systems installed by our plumbers can take nearly any type of water and bring it to pure, drinking-quality clean, including removing unpleasant tastes and odors. And the best part: they’re affordable on nearly any budget and can easily be installed in nearly any cabinet or under any sink.

UV Water Disinfection Systems
Is the water in your home free and clear of potentially harmful microbes like mold or bacteria? You might think so, but simple tests may leave you surprised. If you truly want to ensure that your water is clean, clear, and contaminant free, a UV water disinfection system may be the solution for you.
UV stands for “ultraviolet,” a form of light that’s invisible to the human eye but extremely harsh. UV light is what causes sunburns if you don’t put on sunblock, cracking and wear and tear on things left out in the sun, and even has the ability to quickly kill off microscopic organisms like bacteria and mold spores. A UV water disinfection system runs your water past one of these lights, where the UV light zaps any bacteria or mold in your water, rendering it completely inert and harmless. No more worrying about bacteria, viruses, or other contaminants making your water potentially unsafe to drink.For more information about these or any of our other great water quality systems, read more on our information pamphlet here, and contact Plumb Right at (763) 703-1717.
