Water Quality Month

downloadAugust is Water Quality Month in the United States, but that doesn’t mean we’ll slow down our efforts to provide clean filtered water to municipalities and businesses. One of the organizations we have to work with when we do a major installation is the Environmental Protection Agency. They provide us with much of the data we need to know which filtration systems will be necessary for water supplies.

According to the EPA, over 40% of U.S. waterways have some sort of water quality problem. Common contaminants include pesticides and other chemicals used in homes and businesses. It doesn’t take much to cause enough contamination to make water undrinkable or unsuitable for industrial uses.

That’s why a good filtration system is so important. Proper filtration does more than just improve the taste of your water. A proficient filtration system can prevent water-born illnesses which are illnesses caused by water contaminants. Water filtration is an important part of public health.

Do you need advice on how to filter your water? If you live in the Southeast, you should contact Metro Water Filter. We don’t dabble in water filtration. It is our core business.
