Carbon Filters in Athens GA
Just about anything can be in your water. As water passes through the vast system of mains, pumps, and pipes, it can pick up many contaminants. Any break in a line sucks up soil and surrounding contaminants. Pathogens, from sewage discharges and farm runoff, can enter the water when municipal pipes or water systems break down and are repaired. Our Carbon Filter is filled with tiny, granular, activated carbon filings. Water enters the top of the unit and flows through the carbon bed. As the water passes through the carbon bed, the carbon attracts, traps and neutralizes the harmful chemicals that might be present in your water. In addition, any sediment or other things that might impart a bad taste to your water, is trapped in the carbon bed. Only clean, clear water is passed from the filter and into your water system.
Benefits of our Carbon Filters
- General taste & odor filter for all your home’s water
- Removes chlorine and helps protect against heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, mercury, etc.
- Removes most minerals, chemicals, and sediment
- Sized appropriately for your home to filter all the water you use
- 1-year Metro Water Filter satisfaction guarantee

Water Softeners in Athens GA
Pure water contains nothing more than two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. Unfortunately for us, water is seldom pure. In fact, the majority of all the water in the United States is water that is considered hard. Hard water is water that has become contaminated with minerals such as calcium, magnesium, sulfur, manganese, iron, lead, and limestone. Water is considered to be a universal solvent. Given enough time, water dissolves everything it comes into contact with – calcium, magnesium, sulfur, manganese, iron, lead, limestone, etc. In most cases, the presence of hard water is not difficult to detect. Look for the following signs around your home. If you see any of these and would like professional advise from one of our water specialists, feel free to give us a call. Metro Water Filter offers residential and commercial water softeners to Georgia property owners who feel like they may benefit from reducing the hardness of their water.

Some bacteria such as E. coli and cryptosporidium can be fatal, especially to infants and small children. With increasing frequency, ground water is becoming more and more contaminated with bacteria.

Drinking Water Filtration Systems in Athens GA

Water Sediment Filters in Athens GA
Sediments and fine silt in your water supply can cause serious and costly problems in your home. It’s easy to tell if your water is leaving sediment behind. Simply look for grit in tubs, showers and sinks. Plumbing and pipes become clogged with debris. The normal life expectancy of appliances, such as washing machines, dishwashers and disposals is greatly reduced. Sediments build up in your water heater and reduce the efficiency, capacity and life span of the unit. Bathroom and kitchen fixtures can be damaged and water pressure can be significantly reduced. Unhealthy particles contaminate your drinking and cooking water as well as your ice.
Benefits of our Sediment Filters
- Fully automatic operation
- 12 day adjustable cleaning cycle
- Durable and dependable
Iron Filters for Water in Athens GA
Iron is a natural occurring substance in the earth. When your well water comes into contact with iron deposits, they dissolve and are carried along with the water into your home. Iron stains many things that it comes into contact with in and around your home. This includes all appliances (washing machines, dishwashers, ice makers, coffee makers, etc.) as well as plumbing fixtures, clothes and fabrics. The amount of iron in your water is measured in parts per million (ppm).
Our Iron Filters contain a specially designed media. The iron-laden water enters the top of the unit and flows through the media. The media attracts and binds to the iron. Only clean, clear water is passed from the filter to your home. About every 4 days, the filter removes the accumulated iron that has been trapped inside. This is done by an automatic self-cleaning cycle called backwashing. The backwash cycle draws a cleaning agent into the filter. The cleaning agent causes the media to release the iron which is then flushed out of the filter. The filter then thoroughly rinses the media bed, removing any remaining iron, sediment and the cleaning agent. Once the backwash cycle has ended, the filter returns itself to normal operation.
Benefits of our Iron Filtration Systems
- Keeps laundry colors looking normal
- Keeps appliances and plumbing fixtures free from stains
- Fully automatic operation
- Adjustable cleaning cycle
- Durable and dependable
- Low maintenance
- Removes the metallic taste in the water
Acid Water Filtration in Athens GA
Acid filters (or acid neutralizers) use a neutralizing filter media designed to make the water more alkaline (less acidic). After the water enters the top of the filter tank, it travels through the media to the bottom of the tank and is then pulled upward through the distributor. True to its name, the distributor ‘distributes’ the water to the home whenever a faucet or fixture is turned on. Once the acidic water has passed through the filter media, only clean pH neutral water will enter the home. It’s often difficult to tell if you have acidic water. Look for the following signs around your home. If you see any of these, you may have acidic water: greenish/blue stains in your sink, toilet or bathtub, greenish/blue stains on or between tiles in your shower, Pinhole leaks in pipes, faucets and fixtures that are corroded and/or continuously leak, fragile pipes with thin walls.
Benefits of our Acid Filter
- Protects your plumbing, fixtures and expensive appliances
- Protects your pipes from developing leaks
- Fully automatic operation
- Adjustable cleaning cycle
- Durable and dependable
- Low maintenance
Water Purification Systems in Athens GA
We consider the presence of any bacteria in your water to be harmful. The most dangerous forms of bacteria are fecal coliform better known as E. coli. The presence of fecal coliform bacteria is a sure sign that your water has been contaminated with fecal material from humans or animals. The source water may be contaminated by pathogens, disease producing bacteria, or viruses which can also exist in fecal material. Some waterborne pathogenic diseases include typhoid fever, viral and bacterial gastroenteritis, and hepatitis A. Metro Water Filter provides an Ultraviolet Light Bacterial Removal System to all residents and business owners in Athens. Our Ultraviolet Light system monitors the UV bulb at all times. As long as the UV bulb is functioning at it’s normal level, the system allows water to enter. The water moves down through the tank where it then enters a stainless steel exposure chamber which contains the UV bulb. Water is forced to pass close to the UV bulb where any bacteria are immediately destroyed. The water then moves up to the top of the stainless steel exposure chamber and passes from the unit, ready for drinking.
