Water Filtration

Enjoy Fresh, Healthy Water At Your Tampa, FL Home

Most of us take water for granted. We turn on the faucet, fill our glass, take a drink and just assume that, because it's water, it's good for us. But that is not always the case. There are a number of pollutants that can be picked up from the environment or our plumbing system - minerals, microorganisms, organic and non-organic chemicals, disinfectant byproducts - the list goes on and on. When you take a drink, your body is expecting that perfect mix of 2 parts hydrogen and 1 part oxygen. Anything else is an uninvited guest that can have a negative impact on your health, which is why we recommend a robust water filtration system for your home and family. Don't leave it to chance - contact one of our experts and ensure your home has the freshest, cleanest water available.

Water Filtration FAQs

What are the benefits of using HAC water filters?

HAC (High Activity Carbon) water filters offer several benefits:

  1. Effective Contaminant Removal: They remove a wide range of contaminants, including chlorine, pesticides, and organic compounds.
  2. Improved Taste and Odor: Enhance the taste and smell of water by eliminating impurities.
  3. Healthier Water: Provide safer drinking water by reducing harmful chemicals and pollutants.
  4. Durability: Long-lasting and efficient, requiring less frequent replacements.
  5. Versatile Applications: Suitable for various uses, from residential to industrial water purification needs.
What maintenance is required for HAC water filters?

Maintaining HAC (High Activity Carbon) water filters involves:

  1. Regular Replacement: Change the filter cartridges as recommended, typically every 6-12 months.
  2. Inspection: Periodically check for leaks or damage.
  3. Cleaning: Clean the housing and surrounding areas to prevent contamination.
  4. Monitoring Water Quality: Test water periodically to ensure the filter's effectiveness and timely replacement.
What is the difference between GAC and HAC filters?

The main difference between GAC (Granular Activated Carbon) and HAC (High Activity Carbon) filters lies in their performance and structure:

  1. Structure: GAC filters use loose granules of activated carbon, while HAC filters utilize highly active, denser carbon materials.
  2. Efficiency: HAC filters generally offer higher adsorption rates, making them more effective at removing contaminants.
  3. Applications: GAC filters are commonly used for basic filtration needs, such as improving taste and odor. HAC filters are preferred for more demanding applications requiring higher contaminant removal efficiency.
  4. Cost: HAC filters are typically more expensive due to their superior performance and durability.

What Water Filtration Systems Do You Offer?

Different types of water issues require different solutions, so Matt's is proud to offer a variety of options so we can find what's right for your home:

Water Softeners

As your water moves through the environment and piping to your home, it can pick up a number of minerals, like calcium, magnesium and others. This creates so-called "hard" water, which can cause dry hair and skin, damage your appliances, and build up in your water heater, making it work harder and less efficiently. Our water softeners use ion exchange technology to switch out these minerals with harmless sodium or potassium.

Water Softeners for Chlorine

Chlorine might be helpful for disinfecting water, but too much can also cause issues for your home appliances and even your main water softener. Water softeners with granular activated carbon (GAC) filters are able to pull the chlorine out of the water so you get all the sanitizing benefits without creating problems for your home.

Advanced Water Filtration

Our advanced filtration systems do a little bit of everything to ensure you have clean, healthy drinking water that's not only good for your family but good for your home as well. They combine GAC with high activity carbon (HAC) for more efficient screening of contaminants, state of the art filters that can remove things down to the 5 micron level, and water conditioners that deactivate any remaining minerals so they can't impact your home.
