Selecting a water treatment installation system is all about finding what works your home. The main factors that affect water treatment system costs are the price of the system and the amount charged for installation. The Home Depot will help connect you to licensed, bonded and badged contractors local to your area to complete the installation.
Reverse Osmosis (RO)
If you have salty water, a reverse osmosis system works to reduce dissolved ions in the water, filtering them through a membrane. The result is purer water that tastes great.
Ultraviolet Systems (UV)
Just as sunlight works to naturally kill micro-organisms, so does an ultraviolet system, resulting in purer water.
A system of replaceable filter cartridges removes iron, odor, tastes and impurities from the water. Choose from the following: Carbon Filters, Ultraviolet Filters, Speciality Filters
Water softeners filter out minerals like calcium and manganese to rid your home of hard water. This helps appliances like water heaters, dishwashers and washing machines perform more efficiently and last longer.
• If you need additional plumbing work to complete the installation, the project costs will increase.
• More complex systems can take longer to install and raise labor costs.
• Larger systems come with a larger price tag. The system parts cost more, they take longer to install and the process is more labor intensive.
• The construction of your home determines the installation location. If the home is pre-plumbed for a water treatment system, it will drastically reduce the cost of installation. The condition and type of ground in your area can also affect the installation process and labor costs. The final factor is whether your system is installed in a basement or over a concrete slab foundation.
• Permit requirements and costs depend entirely on where you live. Your permit could cost as little as $50 or as much as $500 depending on your location.
• Every water treatment system will require some level of maintenance. When you’re selecting a system, consider the ongoing maintenance of each model, and factor those costs into your total budget. Typically, a filter system requires replacement filters every six months.
