Water Filtration Systems
In Arizona, tap water can be notoriously hard. Unfortunately, this may negatively affect the taste of the water. Over time, hard water can also discolor and damage plumbing fixtures and appliances. If you’re fed up with bad-tasting tap water, it’s time to invest in a whole-house water filtration system. Talk to the expert plumbers at Agile Plumbing Sewer & Drain, LLC in Tucson about your options. We’ll help you find an affordable solution that works for your household or commercial property.
What’s in Your Water?
All sources of water, including well water and city water, contain some degree of contamination. In fact, contaminants can include byproducts from industrial activities, pesticide runoff, and disease-causing microbial pathogens. Some contaminants can result in acute illnesses or chronic, gradually developing health problems. Ground water can also contain toxic levels of metals, like chromium, arsenic, and barium.
Another common problem with unfiltered water is high levels of minerals that cause scale buildup. These include calcium and magnesium. As water runs through pipes, the minerals build up on the surfaces. Over time, so much scale can develop that the pipes become partially clogged. This is particularly true with the addition of things typically found in wastewater, like soap scum and hair.
If the thought of having these contaminants in your household’s water makes you uneasy, you’re not alone. Due to these types of contaminants, many people have installed whole-house water filtration systems for healthier, better-tasting drinking water.
