Why Choose Metro Water Filter?

Our consultative approach allows our customers to decide what is best for them. Our goal is to help guide our customers as they see fit, rather than telling them what they need or selling them something they do not need. Our team has only 2 dedicated sales professionals and the rest of our staff is dedicated firstly to serving our customers with ongoing maintenance and installation needs. Our service-heavy staff includes a licensed master plumber to ensure a professional, neat job for our customers. We provide our prospective customers real before and after pictures of our actual installations, instead of “stock photos”, because we are confident and proud of our work! Metro Water Filter is committed to providing the highest level of honesty and integrity in our work and prices. If you are looking for an honest and supportive service provider to accommodate your actual needs, contact us today to schedule an in-person evaluation and estimate.

Water Testing

We offer basic water testing and consultation in house.
