3 Steps Toward Great-Tasting Water in the Home

Pour yourself a glass of water from the tap. When you take a sip, what do you taste? Is the water metallic? Does it have a slight odor to it? Are you satisfied? There are few things more important than the quality of water that travels through every fixture in the home. It’s the water that you cook with, bathe in and drink, and if it’s not good quality, then you’re doing yourself a disservice. Clean, great-tasting water is not hard to get. We offer a number of whole-house water treatment systems, including reverse osmosis systems, water softeners and water filtration systems. Here are the 3 steps you need to take to improve your home’s water supply:

  1. Test your water periodically. No matter where your water comes from, it’s always important to know what’s in it. No water will be 100% pure, of course, but if there are substances that could be hazardous to your health or just to your plumbing, then you’ll want to know about them. If you get your water from a well, then you may want to get your water tested more regularly.
  2. Identify the problem and consider a professional solution. Portable water jug filters and those that attach directly to your faucet are popular, but they’re simply not as effective as professional-grade equipment. They require frequent maintenance, and they are not capable of filtering out biological contaminants and high mineral content.
  3. Match the solution to the problem exactly. Hard water has high levels of calcium and magnesium as well as a few other trace minerals. Although not a health risk, it can have terrible effects on your plumbing system as a whole. When such mineral deposits are left behind within your pipes and on fixtures, they can create clogs over time. A water softener can make quick work of hard water. But if you have contaminants in your water supply, then a more comprehensive solution, such as a reverse osmosis system, may be just what you need.
