It is a legitimate concern to most homeowners if their tap water is drinkable and safe to use. Often, it is. City water systems have come a long way in the past century, so we often don’t have much to worry about. However, that’s not to say we have nothing to worry about. In this post, let’s discuss the possible reasons why you may need to have your water tested and treated.
Hard water, meaning it is water that is often full of minerals, is something that is easy to test and treat for. Often a plumbing company will come to your home and test the water from several faucets, determining if there is a high rate of minerals in the water itself. This can be treated with a water filtration and purification system. It is is an easy fix, and filtered water makes a huge difference.
Possible Lead in Water
This issue can be a scary reality for some homeowners. If you live in an older home, it is possible that there were lead pipes installed originally. This plumbing method is no longer used, as lead in the pipes can leach into the water. Lead in water is not easily seen, felt, or tasted, but it is toxic. We suggest that if your home is older, you get your water tested immediately. This testing and treatment is unfortunately sometimes pricey, but it is completely necessary.
Water Purification and Filtration is Worth It
When you could face issues of hard water or lead poisoning, it’s a scary thought. However, there are solutions to both problems. Have General Plumbing come and test your Lake Worth plumbing system. We want the water you use to be safe for consumption and everyday use. (561) 771-0086.
