Water Filtration

Virginia Beach Water Filtration

Master Licensed Plumbers Regulated Water Quality

While water from the tap is cleaner than the source, many lakes and rivers have become polluted with both heavy metals and pathogens. The city only gets rid of part of the harmful additives, while a home water filter takes care of the rest. Let the plumbing service pros at American Mechanical help you install a water filtration system for control in your home.

Which Water Filtration System is Right For You?

Home water filters include carbon filters, reverse osmosis, and electrolyte transfer systems as a means to soften water. They make water extra pure by removing lead, arsenic, mercury, other heavy metals, and small bacteria. They also remove extra chlorine and fluorine, as these chemicals are unnecessary at this stage in your water supply and present a hazard in excess quantities.

Carbon Filters

Activated carbon has microscopic pits that can bind with bacteria and heavy metals. Water that passes through a length of activated carbon will have most particles stripped clean. This process is so efficient that charcoal is used in an emergency to remove all sorts of poisons from people’s stomachs. It works passively and works even better as part of a sophisticated filter mechanism.

Reverse Osmosis

Water filtration by reverse osmosis is more technologically advanced. This process works by forcing water through a fine membrane. Water normally moves towards a concentration of salts and metals, but active pressure can drive water through a filter and leave larger particles behind. These particles are moved to a storage container where they are periodically removed.

Other filtration systems use fine meshes or conventional sand to remove pathogens, while others use electricity to remove metals. Still others convert calcium chloride into potassium chloride or a type of salt that is safer to drink or use for washing. This type of filter is about reducing sodium intake or preventing calcium chloride buildup in pipes.

Ready to Make the Switch to Filtered Water?

These systems are great for any home. However, they are particularly useful for those who live in rural areas and cannot access municipal water sources. They can tap into groundwater, but this is seldom pure these days. Even if the groundwater supply is not tainted, it still might be a collection zone for heavy metals. Having home filters in place can take a good source of water and make it even better.

Water filtration systems make sure that your water from the tap is as safe and clean as possible. Call us today at (757) 347-8549 to install the right filtration system for you!

Rave Reviews From Happy Customers

  • “Rodney W. from American Mechanical repaired an electrical issue I recently had at my home. He displayed stellar customer service skills and the professionalism and knowledge of a seasoned electrician. Rodney patiently listened as I described the issue to him. He knew right away where the problem was and had the issue resolved within a short period of time! Rodney was very kind to Max, our dog who has absolutely no concept of his size but yet wants to “help”. Rodney and the American Mechanical staff made the entire experience pleasantly an easy one. He is definitely an asset to American Mechanical and truly appreciated by me. Many thanks to all!” - Kathryn B
  • “This is the third time Rich P. has come to my house for plumbing issues. Each time he has been very knowledgeable as well as pleasant. Rich also allowed me to watch him while he did the work and taught me as he performed the repairs. I have learned a lot about plumbing as a new homeowner all thanks to Rich. Thank you so much!” - K. Terry
  • “Our experience with American Mechanical was superb! Each member of the team is professional. This is the third generator I have purchased. American Mechanical sales, finance, installation and the technology-based management is the best experience I have ever had. I have recommended this company to the other 80 residents of our over 55 community in Chesapeake, VA. Outstanding!” - Edward N.
  • “The technician was completely thorough and professional. He explained the process and was very knowledgeable about the services he provided. I was shown pictures and given detailed pictures and information after the service was completed. I am extremely happy with the level of service I received today and previously. I will continue to use this company and I highly recommend this company to others! A side note for women…this company does what it says it will do and I never felt like I was being taken advantage of.” - Pamela J.
  • “I purchased a home and closed last week and was super distraught to find out I had some major plumbing issues not even 48 hours after moving into my new home. Some we were not aware of and some that the seller was supposed to have fixed- but didn’t. It was a good amount of work. Starting from the first call to the office the representatives and dispatchers were very kind and responsive. Then, these guys came out to my home and did a thorough check up and diagnosis of my problems and gave me options to choose from to fix the problems. They took the time to answer all of my questions and eased my anxiety over the entire situation. They did a fantastic job doing the repairs and installations. After the initial job was completed the next day we were having an appliance delivered and I came to find yet another issue in a different area of my home which prevented the washing machine from being installed. I called American Mechanical back again and they sent a plumber out right away! Again I was given options and again I felt secure in knowing when they come out to do the work it will be done just as well as they did the couple of days before! I was so impressed with the service I received that I purchased their maintenance package. Highly recommend this company! Excellent service from the first call. Courteous repairs from specialists who are master experts in their field and no run around. They are honest and dependable. Five stars all the way!” - J. Ewan
  • “We are so impressed with the service we received from Matthew and Dominique over the three days they were here. Not only were they professional, they were also polite, kind and knowledgeable. They kept us completely in the loop the entire time they were in our home. They always arrived on time and put in the long hours to get our new HVAC system in place and running. We did run into an issue with the system that was not identified when we purchased and American Mechanical took total responsibility for it and made things right by doing the additional work and not charging us for it. World class service! I highly recommend this company! We felt like Matthew and Dominique were family by the time they left! I will be requesting them any time I need service!” - M. Jaskowiak
  • “Today Jon V. came to do my yearly maintenance on my GENERAC generator. He called me when he was on the way for my service call and he gave me an estimated time of arrival. Jon was very professional and answered all of my questions and then some. I just signed up for their five year maintenance plan because I know they will take good care of my generator. I know American Mechanical will be here when I need them.” - Fawn B.
  • “I was surprised when Taylor called and told me a woman technician would be servicing my HVAC systems today. Very impressed with my services provided by Kristin. Would love to have her for all future maintenances!” - L. Rose
  • “Kristin was our technician for this preventative maintenance check on our new system ductwork and electrostatic air cleaner. She was very thorough in her work and even went the extra mile to clean and dilute any cleaning chemicals that had pooled on the concrete pad. Kristin is very friendly and knowledgeable of our product. We appreciate her hard work in the extremely hot weather! Would definitely recommend her for your HVAC needs.” - Mike B.
