The Benefits of a Whole-Home Water Filtration System

A whole-house water filtration system is a solid investment. Here are just some of the perks:

  • Improved health. A reverse osmosis filter installation can lessen the harmful contaminants in your water.
  • Better-tasting water. Our water purification will remove chlorine from your water so you can enjoy a refreshing drink without any contaminants.
  • Softer skin and hair. Chemical-laden water can leave your body feeling dry. A water filtration system installation can help, leaving you with softer locks and skin.
  • Reduced energy costs. A whole-home water filtration system can also help by making your water heater work more efficiently.
  • Longer-lasting plumbing fixtures. A water filtration system can also help extend the life of your fixtures and faucets.

We're a water treatment company that goes above and beyond to deliver a system that meets your expectations.
If you have an existing system that needs a reverse osmosis filter replacement, we can handle that too!

Signs You Need a Water Heater Installation

While the average lifespan of a water heater is about 15 years, eventually, it will wear out, and you’ll have to replace it. Here are the telltale signs that your water heater’s useful life is coming to an end.

  • Age
    As mentioned, the average lifespan of a water heater is about 15 years, so if yours is past the ten-year mark, it’s time to start planning on a replacement.
  • Out of the Ordinary Noises
    As your water heater ages, sediment builds up in the tank, which causes it to lose efficiency. As a result, you may hear popping or banging sounds coming from the tank.
  • Rusty or Cloudy Water
    Another sign that your water heater is getting too long in the tooth is if you notice rusty or cloudy water coming out of the hot spigot. The issue may be a rusted anode rod, or it could be that the tank is rusting from the inside out.
  • Not Enough Hot Water
    Have you noticed that the hot water doesn’t last as long as it used to? If so, it usually means the system can’t keep up with your demands anymore because it’s not as efficient as when it was new.
  • Water Leaks
    If you see water leaks or puddles around the water tank base, it means your water heater is in danger of imminent failure, and you must call a professional for help as soon as possible.

If you think your water heater is failing, call Platinum Plumbing for same-day repair or replacement.

When to Call a Residential Plumber

It’s common for Carlock homeowners to want to fix their plumbing problems to save a few bucks; however, sometimes the problem is too involved and beyond their abilities. To ensure that you get the right fix for your problem as quickly as possible, call Platinum Plumbing for these common plumbing issues best left to the pros.

  • Suden Water Leaks
    If you experience a burst pipe with the potential for severe flooding, you’re better off calling in a professional plumber rather than trying to fix it yourself. Although these situations are rare, you must act quickly when they happen to minimize the damage.
  • Low Water Pressure
    Low water pressure can happen if there’s an issue with your city’s water supply system, or it could be an issue with your main water line. To quickly diagnose the problem, call a professional residential plumber for help.
  • Sewage Odors
    If you have the odor of sewer gas in the house or if you have raw sewage backing up, it might be an issue with the main sewer line, which requires a professional to diagnose and repair.
  • Leaking or Failing
    If you notice water pooling around the water tank base, it means that your water heater is in danger of failing soon. Call a professional residential plumber as soon as you notice water around your water heater because it means that the tank has corroded and is ready to fail.
