If you have hard water or other water quality issues, it’s time to consider setting up a whole-home filtration system. A quality filter can help you save money on bottled water, and you won’t have to deal with scaling in your appliances.
Plus, a comprehensive water filtration system keeps abrasive minerals and contaminants from affecting your plumbing pipes, in turn helping you avoid costly repairs and premature pipe failure.
We understand you may have a lot of questions before you decide to purchase and install a whole-home water filtration system. You’re probably wondering: Which type of filter should I get? Will it actually work? What’s the installation process like?
Spartan Plumbing has you covered. Our Springboro water filtration experts will handle everything: helping you choose the right filter and sourcing it for you, ensuring proper installation and connection to your water lines, and providing tips on maintenance.
Selecting the Best Water Filter For Your Property
You have several options when it comes to choosing your new water filtration system. Selecting the right one depends on the contaminants and minerals in your water supply. Some homes have hard water, and others might be dealing with chlorine, lead, pesticides, or bacteria.
We recommend purchasing a test kit from your local home retailer to identify the contaminants affecting your water. You will then have a better idea of which filtration technology to select.
Some of the more popular water filtration systems we install include:
If you are still unsure about which type of filter to get, give us a call and our team will help you navigate your options and recommend the best water filtration system for your property.
Point of Entry vs. Point of Use Filtration
While whole-home (point of entry) water filtration offers more comprehensive protection, some homeowners opt to install point of use systems. Spartan Plumbing helps with both.
Point of entry filters treat your water supply before it reaches the tap. These systems are often located in the basement and serve as the center point of all water filtration in the home.
Point of use filters, on the other hand, are installed beneath your sink. So if you have a point of use filter under your kitchen sink, it only serves that particular fixture. You will need to install additional filters in your bathroom, basement, etc.
You may want to consider installing a combination of point of use and point of entry filters for a more comprehensive treatment.
For example, some homeowners put in a point of use reverse osmosis filter under the kitchen sink for treating their drinking water, while a point of entry system is installed in the basement to handle filtration for the rest of the home. Doing this helps you target different contaminants while improving your overall water quality.

Maybe it said it on the screen I approved and I didn’t notice? I’m not sure. But I didn’t know you were going to replace my soldered valve with a press valve. I wouldn’t have been ok with this for 288.50. I was expecting to see a soldered valve when I got home, and I came home to this. I understand it’s quicker for you and maybe it’s the wave of the future but I trust soldered copper more, and that’s what I thought I was getting.
Response from Spartan Plumbing:
John, the picture you were shown was a Propress Ballvalve since that's all we use. Unfortunately, soldering is a dying art. I've been a plumber for 17 years and have used every type of connection imaginable. High quality Propress fittings are just as durable, if not more durable than soldering. Of course, there's really no scientific way to test the two. It's more of a opinion than anything. Since we've been using Propress for the last 3 years we have had virtually no return calls for Propress. Soldering is a different story. Soldering is an art and no matter how good a technician is they will still have a leak. As the owner, I sleep better at night with my technicians using Propress over solder. Sorry we didn't explain the process better to you. If you would like to speak more on the subject you can reach me (Josh) at the office Monday-Friday 8am-12pm. 937-238-8620 Thank You, Josh Ferguson Owner/Spartan Plumbing
