Water quality is a big deal. You don’t exactly see people drinking water from any old stream they come across since the water may be full of different particles that may not react the best in the human body. Thankfully, modern water systems are a great resource for providing clean, potable water to homes across the country. But this doesn’t mean they cover every single base.
On the journey from the water treatment plant to your home, there is a chance for your water to pick up on some particles that, while not harmful to you, may not be the best for your home’s plumbing systems. If you aren’t sure about whether or not your water quality is the best it can be, you should call a plumber in Tampa, FL. If you want the service that will be the most helpful, make sure you reach out to Bayonet Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning.
What Impacts Water Quality?
Didn’t know that there might be something up with your water? That’s okay, a lot of people don’t realize that their water quality isn’t the best until they get it tested–which usually happens after that water has caused problems like limescale or wearing down your pipes. We are hoping that this blog reaches you before you have to deal with either of these!
So what might be in your water that is a problem-causer? A few different things:
- Hard water: Hard water is water that contains high levels of calcium, magnesium, and other minerals. This isn’t harmful to your health but hard water can be bad for your pipes.
- Iron and lead: Iron, lead, and other metals might enter your water supply from the pipes carrying them. These need to be filtered out so they don’t impact the taste or scent of your water.
- Salts: As you’ve probably guessed, water that has high salt levels won’t taste good.
- Other contaminants: There may be other contaminants that can enter your water such as chlorine, fluoride, and even pesticides. In high enough levels these can be harmful to the human body.
