Even though the quality of Lake Tahoe's well water is quite good, a percentage
of wells have been shut down due to contaminants like MTBE and
arsenic. Poor water quality is perhaps one of the leading sources of
health problems in America today. If it can be dissolved in water, it can get into
your body right? Why buy bottled water (which is not always as 'pure' as the
bottler would like you to believe), when you can simply install a filter
in your kitchen and take what you need, when you need it? Rudy's
will not only install a system for you, we'll automatically schedule out
your filter replacements at the appropriate times so you don't have to

Charcoal Filtration - a common and fairly
simple system that runs a small line from the cold water pipe thru a
filter up to a small tap mounted on top of the sink. Depending
on the quality of the cartridge (changeable filter), these systems can remove
most of the taste and odors, as well as chlorine, organic compounds and
heavy metals like lead and mercury.
Reverse Osmosis - fast becoming the standard
for producing really pure drinking water. Reverse osmosis employs an
elaborate filtration system that removes all contaminants from your
drinking water. The resulting product is as good as it gets.
The drawbacks are the system requires more under-counter space for the
storage tank and multi-cartridge filters, and they also tend to waste
water during the filtration process.
