Houston Water Treatment Services
Custom Water Treatment Solutions for Houston Homeowners
Installing a water treatment system in your home can provide many benefits. These systems are designed to remove impurities from the water, such as dirt, rust, and other contaminants. This not only makes the water safer to drink but also improves its taste and odor. Additionally, these systems can reduce the amount of chlorine and other chemicals that may be present in municipal water supplies. Even better, water treatment systems help protect your plumbing fixtures by preventing mineral buildup and corrosion in pipes over time. Installing a water treatment system is an investment in both your health and your home's longevity, giving you the peace of mind knowing that you have clean and safe drinking water for years to come.

How Do I Know If My Houston Home Needs a Water Treatment System?
Not all tap water is created equal. Depending on where a home’s water is coming from, it may arrive loaded with impurities that can threaten the health of its inhabitants over time. In some instances, the existence of these impurities – and the need for a water treatment system – can be fairly obvious.
Your home likely needs a water treatment system if:
- Your tap water tastes or smells unpleasant
- Your tap water is discolored
- You have frequent issues with dry skin, hair, or scalp
- Your clothes quickly fade after being washed with your home’s water supply
- Your water bills continue to unexplainably increase
- You struggle with low water pressure
Do not assume that your water is good to go even if you do not notice any of these warning signs. The best way to know if your home needs a water treatment system is by having your water tested. Our Houston water treatment services include professional testing that accurately measures the amount of impurities in your tap water. We will also determine whether any chemicals used in municipal water supplies are present. This information, along with our tailored advice, will help you decide if investing in a residential water treatment system is right for you.
What Residential Water Treatment Solutions Are Available?
Several types of water treatment systems are available, each targeting different types of problems in different ways. The results of professional water testing will help determine the optimal solution. We will need to consider the specific impurities present in your water, how much filtration is needed, how a given system will fit into your home, and your budget, among other factors.
Each system has strengths and limitations. Because every home is different, each job calls for a custom solution. Our team at Santhoff Plumbing is familiar with all major brands and models and can help you pick the best model for your home. We will help you understand why we are recommending what we are recommending by explaining how the system we are proposing works and giving you the information you need to feel confident about your decision.
Our Houston water treatment services include professional installation assistance with many popular solutions, including:
- Activated carbon filters. Activated carbon filters are ideal for removing chlorine, which is often used in municipal water supplies to disinfect drinking water but can give it an unpleasant taste or smell if not removed beforehand. Many types of these filters can remove organic compounds like pesticides, herbicides, and solvents as well as heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and iron. Additionally, they can help reduce bad tastes and odors caused by sulfur compounds while also reducing levels of sediment and turbidity in the water.
- Faucet-integrated filters. This system will entirely replace your existing faucet with one with an integrated filter. Though they can be expensive to install, they allow you to switch between filtered and unfiltered water with ease.
- Faucet-mounted filters. Unlike faucet-integrated filters, faucet-mounted filters are literally “mounted” on existing faucets, allowing you to switch between filtered and unfiltered water as needed. While this can be an economical option, this solution is not compatible with all faucet types, and it may slow the flow of water.
- Hard water softeners. Hard water softeners help reduce the presence of hard minerals like calcium and magnesium, which can accumulate and damage pipes and plumbing fixtures. They work by exchanging these hard minerals for sodium ions, which helps to “soften” the water without affecting its taste or smell. Hard water softeners also help reduce soap scum in bathrooms and laundry rooms as well as prevent scale buildup in appliances like dishwashers and washing machines.
- Under-sink water filtration system. As its name would imply, this setup is installed beneath a sink and will not take up valuable counter space. Water passes through the system to a special faucet, efficiently filtering large quantities of water. Under-sink filters can be pricey, though, and they often require modifications to your sink plumbing.
- Water well treatment. Water well treatment is a process of treating water from a well to make it safe for use and consumption. This process typically involves the use of chemicals, filtration, and/or ultraviolet (UV) light to remove contaminants from the water.
- Whole-house reverse osmosis treatment. Whole-house reverse osmosis systems are much more effective than point-of-use filters, as they can treat an entire home’s supply at once rather than filtering just one tap or faucet at a time. These advanced systems use a semi-permeable membrane to remove impurities, including dissolved solids, bacteria, viruses, and cysts from the incoming water supply. The process works by forcing the untreated water through the membrane under pressure, allowing only molecules small enough to pass through while blocking larger ones. The result is clean, safe drinking water that is free from contaminants. Whole-house treatments tend to be costly and require professional maintenance, but the significant benefits frequently outweigh these expenses, especially if your water supply is consistently packed with impurities.
Clean and safe drinking water is always worth the investment. Call (713) 360-2185 or contact us online to start exploring treatment system options for your home today.
