Many times we have seen people call local plumbers to work on their whole-home water purification system – be it a water softener, an RO system or a combination of an RO system with UV purification. Long story short, it typically doesn’t end well.
While plumbers are versed and skilled in laying and fixing water pipes, leaks and things of this nature, oftentimes they are not educated on how to work with water purification systems. Here is one such story from one such client:
“A local plumbing company recently changed filters and membrane on our reverse osmosis system. The cost was $200. Ever since, the R/O system is constantly draining, and our water bill has nearly doubled. Also, the tank never fills. It is a 5-gallon tank and we can barely get a quart out of it. We had two other plumbers come out who knew nothing and did nothing and charged a service fee. They suggested replacing the whole system rather than try to fix ours. Our system worked perfectly before the filters and membrane were changed. We checked online and found the information below. We are desperately seeking someone who can find the problem and fix it. We also want someone who has a tester to test the water. Three plumbers and no one had a tester. Please let us know if you have the equipment, knowledge and skill to repair our R/O system and the cost.”
As luck would have it, we reached out to them, found the issue and fixed their problem all in under an hour. Is it the plumber’s fault for not fixing the R/O system? Not in particular – but saying they weren’t skilled in R/O systems would’ve saved this homeowner time, money and heartache.
What Plumbers Specialize in
For future reference, plumbers are skilled in waste disposal, drainage, and gas systems in residential, commercial and industrial buildings. Some companies work on new construction while others stick to maintenance. Plumbers also can install fixtures such as bathtubs, showers, toilets, sinks, dishwashers, waste disposals and water heaters. They also repair old and damaged pipes. While many people make the mistake of thinking a plumber can also fix water purification systems, this isn’t always the case. Many water purification systems need special parts – not just the off-brands you find at Home Depot. This is where water technicians come in handy!
What Water Technicians Specialize in
Water technicians, or water techs, specialize in managing and maintaining water purification machines. This could be for your R/O system, your UV system or even a water softener. While the term “water technician” is a broad term (and can include things such as wastewater treatment), for the purposes of this article, we are talking specifically about water purification techs for stand-alone or whole home systems.
This includes being versed in the installation and maintenance of various water purification systems. This is where Aquasani – a local water purification company in Springfield, Mo. – shines!
