Water Treatment Systems

The benefits of home water treatment come in many forms. Whether you're a mom bringing your new bundle of joy home, or a family looking for solutions to hard water, getting a free in-home water test to determine what home water filtration system from The Home Depot Home Services can offer your family the peace of mind that comes with having clean water. And with our water conditioning and softening systems, you get the benefit of quality products, most with a limited lifetime warranty, which require little maintenance and are energy efficient.

While most communities' water supplies meet EPA Primary Drinking Water Standards, from source to your tap, water can still pick up impurities and contaminants not controlled by your city's water supplier. Unwanted chemicals, minerals and other pollutants can accumulate as water travels your pipes, leaving you with odors and bad tastes. Identifying these problems can sometimes be easy; noticeable odor, visible particles, metallic or other bad tastes certainly are causes for concern. But other times the problems are not so readily apparent.

The solution to these concerns? Our Hydrefiner Filtration Systems or Ultrefiner Reverse Osmosis Filtration Systems.

How Ultrefiner Reverse Osmosis Water Systems Work:

Step 1: Water enters the system inlet valve.

Step 2: Water is forced through the prefilter cartridge that takes out microscopic particles and polishes the water prior to entering the reverse osmosis membrane.

Step 3: Water then enters the reverse osmosis cartridge where it is filtered through a spiral-wound, semipermeable membrane.

Step 4: The resulting highly filtered reverse osmosis water enters a storage tank.

Step 5: Your reverse osmosis water receives a final polishing through the systems carbon block post-filter, and dispensed through a dedicated Home Depot Home Services drinking water faucet.

How an EC4 water conditioning system works:

Step 1: Untreated water flows through the filter media where hardness-causing minerals and iron are removed.

Step 2: The conditioning resin bed is "fluffed" to separate solids from the media.

Step 3: The system injects the exact amount of brine (salt water) made from filtered water needed for full-strength regeneration of the system.

Step 4: Slow rinsing of the brine through the filter media provides a deep rinsing action to make sure all traces of salt are removed from the media bed.

Step 5: Fast downflow rinse repacks the media, assuring maximum resin efficiency while removing any salt residue and any remaining traces of rust and iron.

Step 6: A precise, preset quantity of filtered water is used to make a clean brine solution for regeneration; other brands use raw, unconditioned water to clean the media bed.
