Water. It’s your morning shower, your afternoon thirst quench, and often part of your cooking routine. We use the water in our home for everything, shouldn’t we be sure it’s safe and healthy for us?

Miller’s wants our customers to always feel safe and comfortable in their homes, that’s why we offer water treatment systems that can improve the quality of every drop of water that flows through your home.

What is a water treatment system?

Water treatment systems are used to improve the quality of water in your home by removing contaminants and undesirable components, or reducing the concentration. The process makes your water more acceptable for your desired end-use, whether it be drinking, irrigation, or water recreation. Public water or well water is often not sufficient enough for the health and safety of your family, so many homeowners choose water treatment systems to make a better end result. The experienced plumbers at Miller’s Services are knowledgeable on many different kinds of water treatment systems and we can help you choose the right system for you.

Types of water treatment systems

Water Softener

A water softener will take hard water and make it soft. Hard water is water that has unwanted minerals in it, making the water unpleasant to drink or to use for household purposes. Water softeners will remove minerals, such as calcium or magnesium, making the water more suitable.​

Water Conditioner

Unlike water softeners, water conditioners do not adjust the hardness level of water. Instead, they remove things like chlorine in water, making the water taste better.

Carbon Filter

A carbon filter water treatment system uses activated carbon beds to refine water and remove impurities like chlorine, odd tastes, and bad odors from the water. This is a chemical absorption process wherein the chemicals are trapped in a porous framework of the carbon.

Ultraviolet (UV) Filters

UV filters use UV rays to disinfect the water from bacteria. Homes with a well water source may benefit from a UV filter to remove harmful bacteria that may be present in the well.


Though not used as often today as it has been in the past, distillation is still an effective way of filtering water. Distillation occurs when the water is boiled and the steam is collected, leaving the contaminants behind.

Reverse Osmosis

The process of reverse osmosis begins with pumping the unfiltered water through a membrane, clean water flows through the membrane, leaving the water contaminants behind.
