San Diego is notorious for its hard water problem. In fact, our city has the ninth-worst water quality in the country in terms of hardness and water contaminants. Residents are all too familiar with the effects of poor water quality — from cloudy dishes and stiff laundry to the strange taste and harsh effects on plumbing appliances.
Fortunately, a whole-house water filtration system can improve your water quality in an instant. If you’re dealing with this problem at home, turn to John Stevenson Plumbing, Heating & Air for help installing a water filter in San Diego that works for your budget. Our promise to you is to perform the correct water filtration service for an honest price.
The Importance of a Home Water Filtration System
When you turn on your faucet in the bathroom or kitchen, you expect water to come out — but you might not be expecting all the water contaminants that come out with it. While the public water supply is safe to use, it does contain impurities like magnesium and calcium as well as trace amounts of chlorine and other chemicals that impact the taste, smell, and effect of your water on your daily life. If you’ve experienced itchy, dry skin, coarse hair texture, water-stained dishes, or starchy-feeling laundry, your appliances may not be to blame, but rather the quality of your water.
Fortunately, you don’t have to live this way — and you don’t have to continue spending money on pre-packaged filtered water. John Stevenson’s water filtration experts offer a range of different whole-home and point-of-use water filtration systems that can give you cleaner, higher-quality water in an instant. We’re ready and excited to help you select the right system for your needs.

Benefits of Water Filtration System Services
Having hard water may not seem like a big deal until you’ve been dealing with it long term. Over time, you’ll start to see that hard water is more than a nuisance and can actually be destructive to your appliances. When you upgrade your water quality with San Diego water filtration services, high-quality water won’t be the only result. You may also see your appliances lasting longer, your utility bills decreasing, your skin and hair feeling softer, and your food tasting better as well!
How to Choose the Right Filtration System for Your Home
Water filtration systems can be purchased for your entire home or a single area within it. Whole-house water filtration systems clean the water supply for your entire house so that you get filtered water from every household tap. Point-of-use filtration systems, on the other hand, filter the water in smaller quantities from one water source, which most people prefer to be the kitchen sink. The one that’s right for you depends on your budget, the space available in your home, and your goals in terms of product lifespan.
If you have a larger budget and would like your home’s entire water source to be filtered, you’ll love having a whole-home filtration system. While it is the expensive option, the price pays off over time, as these systems are built to last for years to come and require little maintenance. The only caveat is that you need enough space along your main water line to accommodate the large size of a whole-home system.
Point of Use
Point-of-use systems are much less intrusive than whole-home systems. They get hooked up to the water supply inside your house and bring water in from the main line, filtering it in small batches and reserving it in a tank until you’re ready to use it. For those who have budgetary constraints, a point-of-use filtration system is an affordable solution for obtaining filtered drinking water.

When Should I Search For A Plumber Near Me?A:
John Stevenson Plumbing, Heating & Air recommends scheduling annual plumbing evaluations. Your home is an investment, and it is better to prevent problems before they occur. With an annual inspection, our team can perform an in depth evaluation of all visible plumbing systems to ensure they are in top working condition. However, if you are experiencing high water bills, dripping faucets, no hot water, or gas smells, it is time to call a professional plumber.
Some Common Signs That You Need Plumbing Services
Some residential plumbing issues are easy to spot: active water drips, foul odors, strange sounds from the pipes all indicate something is happening in the system. But, there are more subtle signs that something is going on that requires a specialist. A common plumbing repair in San Diego is slab leaks. Leaks that happen under the foundation of the home. Signs include high water bills, damp floors, warm spots, and sounds of water running when no services are in use.
Common Plumbing Problems
Plumbing can be much more complex than we think. As long as we get hot water from our taps, and everything is working fine, we often don’t think about our plumbing. But, there is a lot going on throughout the home, and it is all connected. Many times, a problem in the toilet is related to the water pressure coming into the home. Some of the most common issues are leaks. Leaks occur when the pipes are older, or plumbing seals are weakened from age and pressure.
Loose faucets, older water heaters, and poorly maintained systems will also lead to problems. If left alone, all of these can lead to burst pipes and major floods in worst case scenarios.
What Are All Of The Components Of A Plumbing System?A:
Plumbing is made up of a complex system connected throughout the home. Residential plumbing services rely on knowledge of uniform plumbing code, extensive math, and engineering. That’s why our team is dedicated to advanced training and education year round. Understanding how pipes are connected, how water and gas comes into the home, and how it is all interconnected is crucial to performing quality and long lasting solutions.
How To Detect A High Water Pressure IssueA:
Excessive water pressure is one of the leading causes of leaks in the home, from minor drips to burst shut off valves. Detecting high water pressure can be done at the main water valve for the home, or at any tap with the proper tools. Our team evaluates water pressure on every service to ensure homeowners do not experience emergency plumbing problems. Often, a homeowner will discover water pressure problems only after a leak has occurred, which is why it is important to have regular plumbing evaluations.
What To Do When Pipes Start Making Weird SoundsA:
Banging, knocking, and hissing pipes all have something to say. Often, it is an indicator of a leak happening somewhere in the system, and they can be linked to high water pressure. When strange sounds are coming from your system, call the experts at John Stevenson Plumbing, Heating & Air.
What are Plumbers and What Do They Do?A:
Plumbers are professionally-trained, skilled people who repair, maintain, and install pipe systems. Water heaters, bathtubs, toilets, drains, showers, and faucets are just a few of the things that plumbers are trained to service. Our John Stevenson Plumbing, Heating & Air plumbers are high-quality, certified professionals who will come to your home to help you with any of your plumbing repair, maintenance, or installation needs.
How Long is a Water Heater Supposed to Last?A:
All water heaters are designed to last several years before they need to be replaced, but unexpected problems with your water heater can occur at any time. Our plumbers at John Stevenson Plumbing, Heating & Air are expertly-trained to diagnose the problem with your water heater and see if it is something that can be fixed, or if a replacement is needed.
