Best Water Filter Installation in Brisbane

Even though your Brisbane tap water is safe to drink and use in your household, it still contains some hard minerals and organic matter. The reality is, your water supply may carry remnants of iron, manganese, & corroded supply pipes. Water filtration systems turn tap water into contaminant-free clear and crisp water. 

With over 27 years of combined experience, S&J Plumbing and Gasfitting has installed hundreds of filtration systems for home and business owners. And we’re here to do the same for you.

Why Install a Water Filter?

High-grade water filters offer advantages including:

  • Cleaner drinking water - Advanced carbon block filtration removes contaminants like lead, VOCs and chlorine bypassing old pipework in legacy homes. Protect your family and staff's health.
  • Reduce unpleasant odors and tastes - Multi-stage filters strip metallic smells and flavors from hard, mineral-concentrated supply sources. even eliminating strong chlorine.
  • Help delicate appliances - Catching sediment extends lifespan for tankless water heaters, washing machines and ice makers by avoiding scale buildup and abrasion.
  • Soften skin and clothing - Filters prevent dry, itchy skin and faded laundry by reducing water hardness and iron concentrations.
  • Enhanced cooking - Filters create a clean palette for soups, drinks and ice cubes by filtering out tastes/odors from ingredients instead.

Water Filtration Installation FAQs

What are the main benefits of installing water filtration?

Water filtration removes unpleasant tastes/odors, reduces scaling minerals that damage appliances, softens water for better cleaning and skin contact, removes concerning contaminants and generally improves purity and quality.

Which water filtration method removes the most contaminants?

Reverse osmosis utilizing tightly woven membrane filters couples ion exchange resin beds and granulated carbon blocking the broadest spectrum from dissolved solids, metals, microorganisms to organic and inorganic compounds.

Will water pressure be reduced after filter installations?

Well designed filtration systems actually have negligible long term real world pressure impacts when properly sized - although some detectable pressure drop upon immediate activation that equalizes is expected with new cartridges.

How often do filter cartridges need replacement?

Replacement intervals vary based on filter type and water quality but typically under counter filters require new cartridges every 6-12 months while more elaborate whole home systems need service closer to 2-5 years.
