In February of this year, the state of Texas experienced a weather anomaly, a deep freeze. Winters in Texas are generally mild, with lows between 26 and 56 degrees Fahrenheit.  Unfortunately, that was not the case this year as a polar vortex brought snow, ice, and incredible cold to the Lonestar State.  

Power Crisis Affected the Water Supply

This weather event caused the state’s natural gas pipeline to freeze, resulting in mass power outages affecting millions of people. For days on end, citizens of Texas lived without heat, electricity, and clean running water.

The restoration of power was, unfortunately, not the answer to everyone’s problems. Boil water alerts lasting for days and many experienced an odor coming from their faucets. The water many now had access to was contaminated. Clean, clear running water was simply not available.

Water Filtration Systems Can Help

While the answer to the power problems in Texas is something experts will be pondering for quite some time, there are things that individuals and businesses can do to help both themselves and their clients.  Clean and clear water should not be a luxury, it’s a necessity, something a water filtration system can help provide.

There are a broad array of filtration systems available today, some appropriate for commercial properties and others ideal for residential properties. Both individual needs and budget constraints will help determine the most appropriate system. Some of the options available today include:

Reverse Osmosis Systems

These leverage water pressure and use small membranes to filter contaminants out of water. Used under the sink, and in refrigerators, these systems purify the drinking water in your home. They can also be used in businesses as commercial systems are available. 

Whole House Filtration Systems

These systems provide clean water throughout your home including drinking and bathwater.  They also have been known to extend the life of your appliances as well as your household pipes.

Ultra Violet (UV) Water Purification

Perhaps the most cost-effective way to access clean and clear water, UV systems utilize ultraviolet light rays to rid water of contaminants including mold, bacteria, and many microorganisms that cause disease.

One option is not better than the other. Choosing the right filtration system is dependent upon a number of factors. What is ideal for one household or business is not necessarily the best choice for another. 


Water Filtration Systems: More Than Just a Luxury

What many in Texas realized this winter is that a quality water filtration system would have been a valuable asset. Access to filtered water may have seemed like a luxury earlier in the year, but since the disaster in February, many have realized it is a necessity. It’s something that helps to keep those you value, your family and your clients, safe.
