Are These Contaminants in Your Water Supply?

The water in your home’s faucets may not be as clean as you think.

Despite the treatment process involved when you get your water from the city’s supply, lingering contaminants could still potentially be found in your water supply. Take a look at some of the most common water contaminants found in homes’ supplies. Could they be in your water?

Chemical Contaminants

Chemical contaminants that may be found in a water supply include pesticides, bleach, and certain metals. These may change the smell or taste of your water—or they may not. It’s important to have whole-house filtration so that you know the water throughout the home is clean.

Particle Contamination

You may find that particulates in your water supply change the appearance or the taste of the water, like soil or flakes of rust. Mineral content, on the other hand, may result in no change in water’s appearance, or even any adverse health effects. However, the mineral deposits left behind in your plumbing could destroy pipes and fixtures.

Biological Pollution

Could there be biological intruders in your water supply? Beware of bacteria, viruses, and other tiny living contaminants that may make your family members sick.

Treating Water Contamination

No matter what where your water comes from, you can keep yourself and your family from drinking contaminated water with a quality filtration system. Whole-house water filtration is the way to go. Those filtered pitchers you keep in the fridge may give you a clean glass of water, but what about the water you use for bathing or for brushing your teeth? Ask your plumber about water treatment solutions like Big Blue water filters and Aqua Pure filtration systems.

We install whole-house water filtration from top brands, as well as water softeners. Call MarGo Plumbing Heating Cooling Inc. for these water treatment systems and more if you’re in the Livingston, NJ area.
