We installed this amazing water treatment trio in Mountain Brook, Alabama yesterday. Great water in this home starts with our large Sediment Filter. This filter serves as the first line of defense for your water and water treatment systems. It protects the other systems by removing all dirt and sediment carried in from your pipes before it reaches your other systems, and most importantly, your home. Next up we have the Pioneer Filter. The Pioneer Water Filter provides next level filtration! In addition to removing lead and chlorine, it also removes Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and Perfluorooctanoic sulfonic acid (PFOS). PFOA AND PFOS'S are bio-permanent and resistant to direct oxidation, so they don't break down naturally in the environment or inside the human body. If that isn’t enough, The Pioneer also removes chemicals that cause unpleasant tastes and odors. And it has an easy to read, color-coded LED notifications to keep you up to date on your filter changes. Finally, last but certainly not least, is our SmartChoice Gen2 Water Softener. It removes hard water causing minerals that make your hair and skin dry and brittle and leaves behind only soft, truly moisturizing water. This water softener is also a Smart Appliance – it keeps up with your water usage and can even identify plumbing leaks.
