If you get water from the city in which you live, versus getting it from a ground well on your property, then you likely know that this water goes through a pretty heavy filtration process at the water treatment plant before it makes its way to you. What you might not know, though, is there could still be impurities with your drinking and potable water, as it has many miles to travel between the water plant and your home. It can pick up some contaminants along the way.
As a result, there’s always a small chance that some level of harmful contaminants can make it into your home’s water supply. If you notice any symptoms, such as cloudy water, soap scum left behind after washing dishes, or an oily film on top of your water, it’s time to explore your water treatment options. In fact, even if you just want to improve the overall taste and health of your water, then you may want to consider a water treatment system. Read on to learn what these options are!
We’re not just talking about the water filter pitchers you can buy at pretty much any supermarket. To truly address the water quality in your whole home, you’ll want to consider the installation of a water filtration system. There are a number of reasons you may choose to go with this water treatment option! For instance, if you ever notice sediment in your drinking water, this is a good sign that water filtration is needed.
You might also benefit from a hard water filter. Hard water is water with a high presence of the minerals magnesium, calcium, and sometimes even iron. These minerals are harmless to ingest, but they are not so harmless for your plumbing system, leading to a buildup of soap scum and limescale, and eventually even leading to corrosion of your pipes.
Reverse Osmosis System
As we stated at the beginning of this blog post, there could be impurities in your water. This could be bacteria, and even viral contaminants. Not only can this potentially be unhealthy and unsafe, depending on the levels of contaminants, but it will make your water taste bad too–in other words, you’ll likely notice a huge difference once you have an RO system installed!
A professionally installed, high-quality RO system can eliminate salts, fluoride, lead, chlorine, pesticides, nitrates, and various other contaminants. Using one of these systems in your home can improve the overall smell and taste of your water, while protecting your plumbing from the build-up of scaling, which will save you money in the long run.
