Quality drinking water is something that many people take for granted. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to acceptable drinking water or water that meets their standards. You may find yourself in a region with hard water or even worse, polluted water. A water treatment system will provide peace of mind when it comes to consuming the water that is coming out of your tap so you can avoid purchasing wasteful individual bottles of water.
We’re not trying to scare you, but there are probably a ton of things wrong with your water. Harmful minerals, pesticides, too much alkaline. All of it can affect your quality of life and your health. It’s not that your municipal water isn’t good enough, but not every city filters to water the same way, and that can leave a lot of room for error. What better way to end your concerns, then, by having all your water treated before it reaches your home?
A water treatment system is your best option for improving your drinking water, but you’ll first need a thorough water test done by a plumber in Humble, TX. That will ensure that you’re getting the right system for the right reasons.
What Is A Water Treatment System?
A water treatment system is a system installed in your home with a hook up to your water main. This is essentially a filtration system that will regulate the quality of the water that is coming into your home from the public water system or property well. The system will purify contaminants out of the water; therefore, water “softer.”
What is Hard Water?
Hard water is water that has a higher count of minerals in it. This high count of minerals is made up of calcium and magnesium accumulating during the water cycle. It happens with well water and even city water.
The Benefits Of Water Treatment System
Consider all of the ways you utilize water inside of your home. You shower, take baths, wash dishes, wash laundry, cook with the water, drink the water, and use the water for ice making and coffee brewing. Hard water can leave a buildup in your water line for your ice maker. You will also notice a build-up inside your coffee pot and watermarks on your shower door or your sink faucet. Your laundry will fade, and your showerhead water pressure will weaken due to the mineral buildup.
Additionally, untreated well water can leave an orange or brown colored ring around your sinks, toilets, and inside of your appliances. A water treatment system will remove all of these contaminants and soften the water which will allow purified water to pass through all of your appliances and faucets. This treated water will expand the lifespan of your appliances and save you the hassle of having to deep clean hard water and rust stains.
Save on Future Plumbing Costs
Texas is one of the states with the highest concentration of hard water. Although hard water isn’t harmful to your health (in fact, some people argue that it helps toward your daily required intake of magnesium and calcium), it can be a huge detriment to your plumbing system.
Hard water will wreak havoc on your plumbing, leaving behind mineral buildup in joints and bends in your pipes. After that, corrosion will soon follow, and it won’t be surprising if pipes all-around your home gradually begin to leak.
Luckily, water softeners will help. They’re designed specifically to remove these minerals from your water before they can reach any of the pipes or appliances in your plumbing. A water softener is an investment that will save you thousands in future plumbing expenses.
