How Safe is Your Home's Water?

Are you drinking enough water? If you are paying attention to how much water you drink, then you should also know whether the water itself is safe or not. A lot of homeowners may not know that their tap water is filled with minerals, bacteria, and contaminants. Fortunately, there are services and products to test and treat your water. The folks at Mr. Rooter Plumbing, for example, offer a range of water filtration solutions. Call Mr. Rooter Plumbing to speak with a live representative and figure out which opportunity is best for you. Our staff do take calls for emergency requests. 

What’s in Your Cup?

When it comes to your health and well-being, you have to be mindful of and careful with what goes into your body. With water making up over 70 percent of your body mass, it is crucial to know what’s in your cup.
Water travels a long way to get to your kitchen faucet. Through the journey, the water runs through lots of rocks, metals, and even water. Naturally, the water picks up some stuff along the way. This is why water can have traces of magnesium and calcium as well as more harmful contaminants such as lead, arsenic, pesticides, and microbes.
It is completely possible that those contaminants have made it through the plumbing system and into your cup. Having your water tested can protect you from the invisible yet harmful components of your tap water. Of course, you should also arrange a filtration system to eliminate the threats as well.

Other Risks of Dirty Water

Contaminated water is not only harmful for your health. It can also be destructive to your plumbing system and property. Hard water, or water with a high mineral content, causes chalky buildups that leave stains on silverware and can even clog pipes or water heaters. This is on the mild end of the spectrum. Some chemicals can even deteriorate your pipes and appliances, forcing you to get them replaced.

Water Filtration Solutions

The good news is that modern civilization has solutions to these age-old problems. Here are some common water filtration options:

  • The most basic option is a pitcher that comes with a filter cartridge. Just replace the cartridge once every few months. This inexpensive option is not recommended for homes that go through a lot of drinking water daily.
  • You can also have a filter installed on the faucet itself. Remember to take note of the type of faucet you have because not every faucet works with faucet-mounted filters.
  • Those who prefer to be discrete can have their water filter installed under the sink.
  • If you want a comprehensive option, then go with a whole house water treatment system. These systems are convenient and effective as they treat all of the water entering the home. We recommend whole house water treatment systems for homes that are on a well water system.

If you are interested in any of these water filtration solutions, then call Mr. Rooter Plumbing get a nearby plumber’s assistance.
