You’d like to think that the water from your tap is as safe as can be. However, there could be contaminants hidden within your water supply that could make you and your family members sick. Is your water safe to drink? To bathe in? To brush your teeth with?
Contaminants that could be in your water supply
Whether you get your water from a well on your property or from the municipal supply, there could be a number of contaminants you don’t want in your water supply. Many local supplies have pollutants that sound as bad as they are:
Sediment can develop in your pipes due to hard water, which can ruin a plumbing system and call for its premature replacement. In addition, your water was likely treated with chlorine, a chemical many people would rather not drink.
How to find out what’s in your water
Sometimes, you can see, taste, or smell that your water may be contaminated. Other times, this is harder to catch. Certain minerals and germs may not show up in the water at all. The best way to find out whether your water is contaminated is with the help of a qualified water treatment specialist.
After they provide water testing, they can advise you on the best options for whole-house or localized water treatment. You can often find this service from your local plumbers.
Plumber recommendations for water treatment
If we provide water testing and find high levels of contamination, we will let you know. We have solutions for households of all sizes, for water treatment in a single sink or—more effectively—throughout the home.
This may include water filters which trap sediment and many contaminants you’d like to keep out, along with more complex water purification systems that remove chemical impurities, germs, and more. And that means cleaner drinking water, pure water for bathing and brushing teeth, healthier pipes, and more!
