If you get your water from the city in which you live, you probably know that all water flowing into your home goes through a water treatment plant first. This treatment plant removes many of the harmful contaminants commonly found in the water supply. How effective the water treatment process is will largely depend on the city conducting it. However, no city water treatment plant is 100% effective. There will always be some level of harmful contaminants that make it into your home’s water supply. If you want to keep your water quality as high as possible, you should consider installing a water treatment system. Have a look at some of the advantages of a dedicated water treatment system below.
Some contaminants that make it into your home are harmful to your plumbing system, but not to you personally. We’ll get to those in a second. Unfortunately, there are plenty of contaminants that actually can cause health problems if you’re exposed to them. Lead, cyanide, and other toxic elements can be found in many water supplies across the country. It is unlikely that you’ll absorb a lethal amount of these contaminants from your drinking water, but it’s important to remember that there are no safe levels of exposure where they’re concerned. A water treatment system can prevent these contaminants from harming you.
Hard water causes lime scale to build up in your plumbing system over time, reducing its efficiency and inflating repair costs. A water softener removes the calcium and magnesium particles in your water that cause this, protecting your home from lime scale in the process. You can save a lot of money on maintenance and repair costs by installing a water softener in your home.
