Why Install a Water Purification System?
The importance of clean, healthy water cannot be overstated. Every aspect of our lives, from drinking and cooking to bathing and cleaning, depends on a clean water supply. But how can we ensure the water we use is as pure as possible? Here’s where a water purification system comes into play.
The benefits of a water purification system include:
- Health benefits: Installing a water purification system can significantly improve your health. The system works to remove harmful contaminants like lead, chlorine, and bacteria from your water supply. These substances can pose serious health risks if ingested over time. By eliminating them, you’re ensuring the water you consume is safe and healthy.
- Better taste and smell: Impurities in water can often lead to an unpleasant taste or smell. With a water purification system, these impurities are filtered out, leaving you with water that tastes fresh and clean. If you’ve been dealing with off-tasting tap water, a water purification system could be the solution.
- Economic efficiency: Believe it or not, installing a water purification system can save you money in the long run. How? By reducing your reliance on bottled water. Not only will this save you money, but it’s also better for the environment as it reduces plastic waste.
- Longer-lasting appliances: Hard water, which contains high levels of minerals, can cause damage to your appliances over time. A water purification system can help soften your water by removing these minerals, extending the lifespan of your appliances and saving you from costly repairs or replacements.
At Blue Sky, we believe in the power of clean water. Let us guide you towards a healthier, safer, and more efficient water usage experience with our range of water purification systems.
How Do Water Filtration Systems Work?
Water filtration systems function based on several processes to purify your water, ensuring it’s safe for consumption and use.
The exact process can slightly differ depending on the type of system installed, but generally, here’s how they work:
- Mechanical filtration: This is the first stage in most water filtration systems. The unfiltered water passes through a filter that physically traps sediment and larger particles, such as rust, sand, and dirt.
- Activated carbon filter: The mechanically filtered water then passes through an activated carbon filter. The porous nature of activated carbon allows it to absorb various contaminants, including chlorine, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and certain microbes. This process also improves the taste and odor of the water.
- Ion-exchange resin: Some systems feature an ion-exchange resin, especially in areas with hard water. This component exchanges the hardness-causing calcium and magnesium ions in the water with sodium or potassium ions, effectively softening the water.
- Reverse osmosis: This stage applies in systems specifically designed for reverse osmosis. Pressure pushes the water through a semi-permeable membrane that can filter out a wide range of contaminants, including lead, fluoride, and detergents, delivering purified water.
- Disinfection: Finally, some systems incorporate an additional disinfection phase, such as UV treatment, to kill any remaining bacteria, viruses, and other harmful microorganisms. This final stage ensures that the water you consume is not only clean but also safe.
It’s important to remember that not all filtration systems include all these stages. The type and number of stages in your water filtration system will depend on your specific needs and the quality of your water supply. At Blue Sky, we’re committed to helping you understand these processes and guiding you to the system best suited to your home’s requirements.
Types of Water Purification Systems
At Blue Sky, we offer an array of water purification systems, each designed to tackle specific water quality issues.
Here is an overview of the main types of systems we install:
- Activated carbon filters: Also known as carbon filters or pre-filters, these systems work by absorbing impurities as the water passes through carbon cartridges. They are particularly effective at removing chlorine, sediment, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and improving the taste and odor of your water.
- Reverse osmosis systems: This is a highly effective system that uses a semi-permeable membrane to remove a wide range of contaminants from the water, including lead, fluoride, detergents, and more. The result is purified, great-tasting water right from your tap.
- Distillation systems: This type of system heats the water to boiling and then collects the vapor as it condenses, leaving many of the contaminants behind. While slightly slower, distilled water is extremely pure.
- UV systems: Ultraviolet (UV) systems utilize UV light to kill bacteria, viruses, and other microbes in the water. These systems are environmentally friendly as they do not require any chemicals or additional heat to operate.
- Water softeners: Not strictly a purification system, water softeners are nonetheless essential in areas with hard water. They work by swapping the minerals in the water with sodium or potassium ions, mitigating the effects of scale buildup in pipes and appliances.
- Whole-house filtration systems: An excellent solution for overall water quality in your home, whole-house filtration systems are installed at the point where water enters your house, ensuring that every tap in your home dispenses filtered and treated water. These systems are particularly effective at removing sediment and rust, reducing chlorine levels, and generally improving the taste and odor of your water, making them an ideal choice for comprehensive water treatment.
Your choice of a water purification system largely depends on your specific needs and the quality of your current water supply. Our team at Blue Sky is always ready to guide you through the process to ensure you make the right choice for your home.

The Halo-5 filtration system represents a breakthrough in whole-house water purification technology, offering an all-in-one solution for water treatment.
This robust system comprises five stages of filtration and conditioning, designed to tackle numerous water quality issues:
- The first stage uses a sediment filter to trap particulate matter like dust, sand, and rust, preventing them from entering your water supply.
- In the next stage, water flows through a granular activated carbon filter, which absorbs and removes organic contaminants, chlorine, and other substances that can affect the taste and odor of your water.
- The third stage features a multimedia filter that targets and removes a broader range of contaminants, including heavy metals and industrial pollutants.
By using this multi-stage approach, the Halo-5 filtration system ensures that the water in your home is as clean and safe as possible.
At Blue Sky, we proudly offer the Halo-5 system as part of our commitment to providing Denver residents with the best possible solutions for their water treatment needs.
Why is my drain clogged? I’m so careful!
We believe you when you tell us that you are so careful about putting grease down your drains. Unfortunately, most people end up putting it down accidentally no matter how hard they try to do the opposite. When you rinse plates, bowls, pots, and pans in your sink, they often have a thin layer of grease on them. This gets rinsed down the drain with the rest of the debris from your plate. When this grease contacts a cold pipe downstream from the kitchen sink, it solidifies and attaches to the pipe wall. Over the years, even the smallest amounts of grease can build up and cause clogs. Don’t worry, though! Your Blue Sky plumber will get that clog out fast!
What kind of sink should I get?
When it comes to getting a new sink, you have many options. These include:
- Cast iron
- Stainless steel
- Enameled steel
- And more!
When our experts help you install a sink, we’ll ask you what you plan to do with it. Will you wash dishes in it regularly? Is it likely you will drop dishes or silverware in it? Then, we’ll ask you about your preferences. Do you want a large sink or a small one? Do you want a sink that sits on top of the counter or below the counter level? Once we know the answers to these questions, we’ll work with you to find the perfect kind of sink for your home. In general, cast iron and stainless steel are more durable than some other types of sinks, but they may require special care.
What kind of water heater should I get?
Most of the time, the type of water heater you get will be determined by the type of connections you already have. Unless you are highly motivated to change the type of water heater that you have, the best choice is usually to get the same kind that was installed before. If you are in a place to change the type of water heater that you have, gas is often the better option. It is cheaper and can heat larger quantities of water faster. However, gas water heaters are usually larger than electric ones and you cannot store flammable liquids nearby.

What is hydro jetting?
Hydro jetting offers a way to clean your drains without digging up your yard or pulling your home apart to access clogged pipes. Instead, we use a tool that sprays highly-pressurized water into your pipes. We control the pressure of the water and where it sprays, so we can remove your clog and clean your entire pipe. A hydrojetting tool has one nozzle that sprays forward and 6-8 that sprays backward. On the first pass, the reverse-facing jets propel the nozzle forward while the front one breaks up clogs. When we pull the nozzle back through the pipe, the reverse jets scour the edges of the pipe until they look like new. If your plumber thinks that hydrojetting is a good option for you, we’ll let you know and get the job done fast.
What is the best kind of pipe for my home?
Most of the time, we suggest plastic or PEX/PVC piping for your home. This material lasts for a long time because it doesn’t rust and is less likely to crack or break than some other types of pipe. Unless you are in a very specific situation, which our plumbers will discover, we highly recommend this type of piping for your home.
How do I know if my toilet is leaking?
Toilet leaks are more common than you might think. This can make your water bill sky-high and leave you wondering what is going on. Here are a few signs that your toilet is leaking:
- You frequently have to jiggle the handle to make the toilet stop running.
- You have to hold down the handle when to flush to get the tank to empty.
- Water runs over the top of the overflow pipe.
- You hear sounds of water running in the toilet when it is not being used.
- Water runs down the sides of the toilet bowl long after the toilet was last used.
- You hear the toilet tank refilling even though it hasn’t been emptied recently.
What can I put down my garbage disposal?
As long as you use enough water, you can put almost any non-fibrous food down your garbage disposal. This includes bones up to ½” in diameter, coffee grounds, eggs and egg shells, orange rinds, apples, and potato peelings. Most problems occur when you don’t use enough water and don’t allow the water to run for at least 10 seconds after the food disappears.
