Carbon Filtration

Did you know we absorb more chlorine through our skin and through inhalation during a 10-minute shower than we do drinking eight glasses of water a day? The Safe Drinking Water Act mandates the EPA to strictly regulate contaminants in community drinking water. In order to meet those standards, chemicals like chlorine are added to our water supply. Trihalomethanes (THM’s) are a byproduct of the chlorination process that most public drinking water systems use for disinfection. Chloroform is the primary THM of concern. The EPA does not allow public systems to have more than 100 parts per billion of THM’s in their treated water. Some municipal systems have had difficulty in meeting this standard.

That is why Bill Howe Plumbing uses only the best water filtration system available. We have partnered with a local company, Challenger Water, which utilizes the Pentair 7000 programmable head, which is the best on the market. All products from Challenger are made in America with customers satisfaction as the top priority.

Activated carbon is the most effective way to filter municipal water. Activated carbon is nature’s filtering system, and is most effective in removing organic chemicals and compounds from the water. Our cities have the daunting task of delivering safe, potable water to millions of people every day. To accomplish this they must add generous amounts of chemicals to our tap water. Once it reaches our home we no longer need those disinfectants in our water supply. So why not remove them at the point of entry.

The chemicals being used in our water cause corrosion in copper piping, so what is it doing to our bodies? Do you like the smell or taste of your tap water?

Carbon Filtration Greatly Reduces:

  • Chlorine
  • Odors
  • Particulates
  • Pesticides
  • Sedimentation

These systems are a “green” way to filter water as well. Homeowners can eliminate water usage and the costly, and environmentally damaging, effect of bottled water waste.

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.

You have an incredible team! My suite has had major issues constant backups. In the last few months we had a horrible flood that caused us thousands of dollars in repairs. Your team was so attentive and took care of all the repairs. Just yesterday another back up called them immediately and like quick responders they were there to take of it! A huge thank you from my La Costa providers and staff! We appreciate your hard and dedicated work!
