Whether you and your family rely on municipal or well water for your home, you may be surprised to learn that your water quality isn’t always as good as it could be and may require a water treatment system.
Although city drinking water is tested and treated, it is usually only enough to meet the minimum federal Safe Water Drinking Act standards. Trace minerals and other contaminants could still be present in the water you drink and bathe in. Private wells can also encounter water quality issues due to poor quality groundwater or unmaintained wells.
For these reasons, most industry experts recommend regular water testing and treatment, regardless of what kind of water you utilize.
The first and most important sign that you need a water treatment system is a failed water test. If you notice any of the following red flags (or even if you don’t), it is highly recommended you schedule a water test.
That said, the following are a few indicators of poor water quality.
Dull, brittle hair: Is your hair feeling dull and dry? Is every day a “bad hair day?” This could be a sign that you need water treatment.
Dry, itchy skin: A lack of moisture caused by hard water, can irritate skin irritation and worsen conditions like eczema.
Spots on dishes: Have you noticed white chalky residue on your dishes? If so, it could be a sign that you have hard water.
Stains and buildup: Do you see stains on your shower, toilet, or sink? Has the water flow from your faucet or washing machine slowed down? It could be the result of excess minerals or scale build-up in your plumbing and appliances. When you have buildup in your appliances, you may also notice increased electricity costs to run them, due to a lack of energy efficiency.
Soap not bubbly: Hard water doesn’t react with laundry detergent and other soaps as easily as soft water, which causes a lack of bubbles in soapy water. It also leads to soap scum build-up.
Funny taste and smell: Foul tastes or smells in our water can be a sign of larger problems, like the presence of contaminants. Don’t ignore these tell-tale signs and instead schedule a water test immediately.
A water treatment system is a small investment that can prolong the life and efficiency of all your appliances that rely on water, make your skin and hair feel and look better, allow for cleaner clothing and dishes, and improve the health and safety of you and your family.
If you notice any of these signs in your household water, it might be time to consider a water treatment system.
