Water Filtration

Did you know that all water contains at least some kind of contaminant? According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), low levels of most contaminants are not considered harmful. However, common drinking water contaminants can be damaging to your pipes, causing cracks and leaks overtime. Your Arizona water treatment solutions may differ depending on where you live. Contact us and we can discuss which water filtration option is best for you.

Filtration Assessment $49 trip charge

*Should you decide to proceed with service on the day of your initial appointment, we’ll waive the $49 charge.

A water filtration system can:

  • Improve the taste of your drinking water
  • Reduce the amount of contaminants in your water
  • Soften Arizona’s hard water and reduce harmful corrosion to pipes and appliances

At Chas Roberts, we understand the importance of having access to healthy, contaminant-free water.

A little about Arizona’s water

Arizona WaterRural and sparsely populated areas near Phoenix that are outside of an Active Management Area (AMA) are required to test for contaminates and particulates.

Arizona’s groundwater has been known to contain radioactive elements, fertilizers, fluoride, and pathogens, which can be harmful in large quantities. By performing annual water tests, individuals can determine whether they need to install home water treatment devices.

Knowing what water filtration options are available will ensure you have delicious and healthy drinking water on tap, regardless of where you live.

Maricopa water processing systems

Chas Roberts technicians specialize in the following Arizona water treatment systems:

Particle filtration

Particle filtration is used to remove traces of particles in water ranging in sizes from sand to clay. Particle filtration also removes sediments from well water.

Activated carbon filtrations (Ultrafiltration)

Activated carbon filtrations are used to remove unwanted taste and odor from water, and minimize health hazards. Ultrafiltration removes low concentrations of organic chemicals like pesticides and solvents, and can reduce the levels of radon gas and chlorine found in water. Ultrafiltration does not soften water or disinfect it.


Distillation removes microorganisms, minerals, and metals from water. The process kills bacteria, and leaves very few contaminates. Some home distillation units with carbon filters can remove volatile organic chemicals.

Reverse osmosis (RO)

Five-stage reverse osmosis (RO) is the most popular water treatment in Phoenix, because many residents wish to improve the taste and purity of their drinking water. RO systems produce pure and great tasting water through an intricate process.

Ion exchange (Water softening)

Ion exchange is used to replace calcium and magnesium ions with sodium or potassium ions, depending on your chosen configuration. Water softeners can also remove metals. However, they cannot remove organic chemicals, pathogens, particles, or radon gas.
