If you get water from a main line from the city, rather than a well on your property, then you probably understand that the water goes through an extensive treatment process before it reaches your home’s faucets. The effectiveness of these water treatment facilities does vary, though they’re all mostly good enough to remove the majority of harmful materials. Still though, there’s a long way to go between that plant and your home, and there is always a small chance that some trace elements of contaminants can make their way into your water supply.
There is really no “safe level of exposure to these contaminants. If you want to truly protect your water supply, then you’ll want to have a water treatment system professionally installed. Before you reach that step though, you’ll want to have your water tested to see exactly which water treatment system or combination of water treatment systems will help.
