Whole house water filters clean every drop of water that comes into your home.

Then, our pros can install the water filters that can resolve the issue.
Point of entry filters allow fresh, filtered water to reach your faucets. So, you have clean water for cooking, washing your clothes, and doing the dishes. There are many types of water filtration systems to choose from. Flotek Technicians inspect your home's water supply and suggest the best solution for you. Do you want to get rid of the smell of chlorine, remove sediment, or improve water hardness? The solution you need depends on what type of issues you're having. Tell us what you need, and we'll find the water filters that can resolve the problem. From water softeners to carbon or sediment filters, there are many types of water filtration systems. Our technicians are familiar with installing all major brands and types.
TYPES OF WATER FILTRATION
Reverse osmosis water filters reduce salt and remove organic contaminants, including pathogens. They also filter out heavy metals. At Flotek, we install reverse osmosis systems that are easy to maintain and built with high-quality parts and materials. When you need clean water for your home or business, you can rely on our team to suggest the best solution for your water. We use systems that require less energy and lower pressure to help control costs. There are numerous pumps available, such as diaphragm or rotary-vane, depending on the application.
Carbon block filters use the process of absorption to remove contaminants from the water. They use a solid block of carbon to filter the water in your home. These water filters remove a number of contaminants such as chlorine and sediment. To improve the taste and smell of your water, consider carbon filters or pre-filters for your home. Our technicians often suggest carbon filters for homes with high chlorine content in the water supply. Water passes through the block of carbon, which acts like a magnet pulling out impurities and trapping them in the filters. Granulated active carbon or GAC filters are made of the same materials but use pellets instead of a block of carbon. These porous filters have more surface area than many other types of materials, and they allow the water to flow through the filter faster than a solid block. GAC Systems also last longer.
Do you have rust stains in your kitchen sink, tub or shower? If so, an iron filter can help reduce the amount of iron in your water to help prevent rust from flowing out of your faucets or staining your laundry. Iron filters remove iron from water by the process of oxidation. This turns dissolved iron into rust and traps it within a filter. Once or twice a week, charged particles are rinsed away through the system's backwash mechanism. Iron filters also get rid of undesirable chemicals and keep your water fresh and clean. Say goodbye to dingy laundry and rusty sink stains when you use whole house water filters.
COMMERCIAL WATER FILTERS
Improve the quality of water used in your restaurant, retail space, or office building. Whether you own a laundry or manufacturing plant, cleaner water can remove impurities that threaten the health of customers and employees. If you rely on water free of contaminants for your products and services, Flotek technicians can design a system customized for your business.

Perform a water quality check by testing your tap water for salinity, hardness, and total dissolved solids. This can help you determine the type of whole house water filters for your house. Consider the technology used to purify the water. Some systems are better at filtering out chemicals, metals, and microorganisms. Once you run a water quality check and receive the results, Flotek technicians can help you determine the best water filter for your water supply.
Yes. In some cases, water filters can greatly impact water pressure. For example, if a filter becomes clogged, your water pressure will drop until you resolve the issue. However, with a little care and maintenance, you can keep the pores of the filter open and prevent turning on the kitchen or shower faucets to a trickle of water. We offer annual maintenance on our filtration systems.
Water filters come in two main varieties, point of use filters and whole house filters. Choose the filter that works best for your goals. Whole house water filters deliver clean water to every faucet and fixture but use more water. Point-of-use water filters are limited to one fixture, such as a kitchen faucet.
