small_759333962Water quality is a growing concern both in the Glen Carbon area and in the rest of the United States. Although our tap water is disinfected by our local treatment plants, there are a number of contaminants that still make their way into our drinking water and many people aren’t comfortable with consuming the chemical byproducts that are created when chlorine is added to our water. One of the best solutions for ensuring you have safe and pure water at your home is to install an under the sink water filtration system!

What is an under the sink water filtration system?

An under the sink water filtration system is a type of water filter that is connected to your home’s plumbing system and fits snugly inside the cabinet under your sink (most often in the kitchen). The system is typically connected to a dedicated faucet that dispenses purified water. Before water is dispensed out of that faucet, it goes through a filtration system that removes any traces of chemicals, contaminants or debris.

What are the advantages of installing an under the sink water filtration system?

  • Extremely pure water. As we mentioned above, tap water typically contains all kinds of contaminants that can affect its smell, taste and safety. An under the sink filtration system uses an advanced filtration technology that is highly effective at removing those contaminants from the water you drink.
  • No need for pitchers. One popular way that people get filtered water at home is to use a pitcher filter such as a Brita filter. An under the sink filtration system has a couple big advantages over that. First, it is much more effective at removing contaminants from your water than a pitcher-filter, so you’ll have higher-quality water. Second, you don’t have to go through the annoyance of filling a pitcher over and over to get filtered water. Under the sink filtration systems can hold many gallons of filtered water at a time, so you’ll never run out of a supply of purified water.
  • Hidden from sight. With an under the sink filtration system, the only thing that you can see is the faucet that’s installed sleekly onto your sink. The rest of the system is hidden from view. This keeps your kitchen looking great while giving you access to great tasting, fresh water every day.

If you have any questions about an under the sink water filtration system, or if you’d like a plumbing system serviced or installed in your home, contact Tiger Services, your Glen Carbon plumbing, heating and air conditioning company.

We definitely recommend Tiger!
"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
