FAQs: Whole House Water Filtration System

Protect your family's health with Pearland's Top Rated Flow-Tech Anti-Scale System

My home uses city water. Why would I need a whole house water filtration system?

Chlorine or chloramine (a mix of chlorine and ammonia) is primarily used as a disinfectant in many municipal water systems today. The corrosive nature of chloramines can cause pitting in copper piping and deterioration of some plumbing parts in homes. The effects of this disinfectant can also be felt by some in the form of dry itchy skin and dry hair.

Did you know that tap water disinfected with chloramines is not recommended for people with compromised immune systems, for patients on dialysis machines, and for fish in fish tanks?

What system(s) do you recommend?

The Flow-Tech Whole House System uses Centaur catalytic carbon vs. standard granular activated carbon to remove or reduce chloramines and disinfectant by-products such as VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and THMs (Trihalomethanes). Did you know that there is greater exposure to these potentially harmful by-products by taking a 10-minute shower than by drinking a liter of the same tap water in 10 minutes?

The revolutionary Flow-Tech Anti-Scale System uses an induction method that will keep scale from building up in your pipes, water heater, and all the water-using appliances in your home without the use of chemicals and salt. It will also remove scale that exists within the pipes of your home resulting in a more efficient operating plumbing system. Watch our short video to learn more about this innovative and unique anti-scale system.

Why do I need a descaler?

Do you notice scale build-up on your shower head(s), ice maker dispenser, dishes, and shower doors? If you answered "Yes", then you also have scale build-up in your plumbing pipes, water heater, as well as any water-using appliances in your home. This scale build-up caused by hard water, can negatively affect the efficiency of your plumbing system and shorten the life span of your water-using appliances.

What are the benefits of a Flow-Tech Whole House Water Filtration System?

A significant benefit for your family and home is the reduction or removal of chlorine, chloramines, VOCs, THMs, and other disinfection by-products. This means that your family will enjoy clean, filtered water for drinking, bathing, and other household needs. Imagine consuming coffee, tea, lemonade or other water-based drinks made with clean better tasting water. Think about the savings and convenience by not having to purchase, haul, and store bottled water. Think about what this means for your family's health to have clean, filtered water every day for drinking and bathing.
