Filtration Systems & Services

When you think about it, our water has been around since the beginning of time. Since then, many natural organic and man-made inorganic chemicals and contaminants have seeped into our water supplies. While the municipal water districts do the best they can with the dollars they are given, it is becoming increasingly difficult for them to keep up.

Installing a whole-house water filtration system in your home will provide needed protection against the water-borne intruders like dirt, debris, heavy metals and chemicals that may be in your water. 


Most Advanced Technology

Much like any facet of life, technology keeps advancing. That’s why Mackin & Sons Plumbing has partnered with the Honest Water Filter Company. They have the most advanced whole-house and under sink systems on the market.  They are also one of the few systems that have been certified by NSF International for System Performance, going well beyond standard certifications that most other systems on the market have. 



The 3 Concerns in Municipal Water

There are 3 Concern in today’s municipal water that must be addressed by a filtration system;

1. Physical Contaminants like dirt, bacteria and particulates.

2. Chemical Contaminants like disinfecting chlorine.

3. Hard water minerals like calcium and magnesium. Each of these concerns affect you and your family’s health, the “health” of your plumbing system and all the water-using appliances in your home. 

water treatment concerns


In the past, the only choice to treat these 3 concerns was a large stand-up carbon filter combined with a softener. The systems were large, inefficient and wasted a lot of water backwashing. Now, thanks to the latest technology, ONE system can efficiently and effectively treat all 3 concerns without wasting gallons upon gallons of water every month.
