The quality of your home’s water can affect its taste. Low quality water for cooking, drinking, or cleaning can have serious effects on your family’s health. Poor water quality can also affect the life of your fixtures & appliances. If you’re concerned about your home’s tap water, a water filtration system is recommended.

Here’s the most common types of water filtration systems & their benefits:

Sediment filters

Sediment filters work by removing dirt & debris from your water. These systems are mostly used in homes with well water. All homes can benefit from this type of filter. Sediment filters protect your appliances & plumbing system from damaging buildup. Removing large particles from tap water can also improve taste.

Reverse Osmosis water filtration

Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration uses a membrane to remove particles. RO filtration can remove smaller contaminants than sediment filters, such as detergents, heavy metals, & chemicals.

UV water filtration

Removing particles is only one step in curing your home water. You also need something to remove pathogens that can make your family sick. UV systems don’t change the taste of water & use low amounts of energy. They’re very effective & can remove 99.99% of bacteria & viruses from your water.

Combo water filtration

Combined systems will remove large particles & filter out chemicals & pathogens. With this type of system, you benefit from all the strengths of sediment filters, RO systems, & UV systems. There’s a variety of options that can fit any home’s needs.


Bad tasting tap water, buildup on fixtures, & spotty dishes are signs that you could use a water filtration system. If you have any of these, give us a call or schedule service online.

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!"
