The Parts of a Commercial Water Filtration Unit

A commercial water filter plays an essential role in ensuring the quality of water used in commercial settings, some with high-volume water demands. Besides enhancing the water’s taste, smell, and safety, a commercial water filter removes particles that can damage equipment or increase the maintenance requirements for commercial equipment. The increased maintenance cost should be considered when evaluating filter system installation. While the systems are easy to install, a licensed plumber should install the filtration system to ensure everything works correctly and safely.

A typical commercial water filter removes contaminants in three stages. The first stage passes the water through a nonwoven fabric that captures solid particles and sediment. The second stage uses activated carbon to remove odors, chlorine, and trihalomethanes, a residual chemical from the chlorine treatment. The final stage uses a fiber membrane that eliminates bacteria and microorganisms such as e-coli down to one micron in size.

The combination of filter stages results in high-quality water entering your systems, whether for direct consumption or its use in commercial food preparation or other equipment. A commercial water filter may handle 50,000 liters of water before needing to be replaced. It is important to confirm the volume your commercial water filter can handle and establish a replacement schedule to ensure your business continues to receive clean, healthy water.
