A public water supply is where over 90% of Americans get their water. Though some regions have clean and healthy water that is properly balanced, others are dealing with water that is contaminated, smelling bad, leaving their skin and hair dry, poor tasting, and taking a toll on surfaces, plumbing, and appliances in the home. Where filtering water is becoming more of a necessity for most homes, many homeowners are trying to find the right solution for their home and the water their home receives. Today, we at AAA Water Team would like to share a few things to consider as you shop for your home’s water treatment systems.
How Does Sediment Affect Water Quality?
Sediment is defined as matter that settles at the bottom of liquids. In water the sediments tend to be mineral oriented. In the event sediment levels in your water supply are high, you will need to invest in a whole house sediment filter. Keep in mind that the reusable ones are more cost-effective over time.
Chemicals in Tap Water
You may need a granular activated carbon filter if there are chemical contaminants in the water. This filter type can remove chlorine, the most common chemical in municipal water, effectively; among others. There are many chemicals found in water, depending on the region, and even location. A water test can help you better know what chemicals are specifically in your water supply.
Water Purity Measurement
To eliminate specific types of impurities, there are different designs for the filtering systems. You will need to identify which impurities exist and which systems are geared to meet your needs to ensure you are getting the correct one for your home. A professional water test can help you identify the impurities. Additionally, you can also find out what contaminants are typically found in the water in your area by contacting a representative in your county.
Water Flow Rate
A flow rate of at least seven gallons per minute is found in the most efficient water filtration systems. Be certain the water treatment system you invest in corresponds with the water flow rate of your home.
Uses of Water in Daily Life
The water you use in your home is not only used exclusively for drinking. Consider the cooking and baking you use with water. People need water to clean surfaces found in the home, do laundry and dishes, and other housekeeping tasks. Water is used to wash our hair and bodies, brush our teeth and other such daily hygiene. Water is used in care of plant life, both indoor and outdoor. People depend on pure, healthy, water on a day-to-day basis. Ensuring your water is safe and efficient is essential to protect our health, and the longevity of your home’s dynamics.
