Does My Home Need a Water Treatment System?
While it is true that many homes can benefit from a water treatment system, it is not necessarily a requirement for every household. The need for a water treatment solution largely depends on the quality of your local water supply. Some municipalities provide high-quality water that meets or exceeds health standards, making additional treatment unnecessary. However, in areas where the water supply may contain heavy metals, harmful bacteria, or other contaminants, a water treatment system becomes essential. Additionally, households that depend on well water often require treatment systems due to the possibility of contamination from natural sources.
So, while not all homes necessarily require water treatment systems, it is always wise to have your water tested to determine if a treatment system could enhance the quality and safety of your water. Our water treatment installation and repair services in Omaha include comprehensive testing that can identify any potential issues. We are not interested in selling you solutions you do not need, and we will always be honest and transparent when discussing whether a water treatment system is necessary and what it can do for your home.
How Does My Home’s Water Become Contaminated?
Your home's water supply can become contaminated in one of several ways, some of which are not in your direct control. One common source of contamination is through the local water supply itself, often due to aging infrastructure and corrosive pipes that can leach lead into the water.
Even in urban environments, contamination can occur due to backflow, which involves contaminated water flowing back into the clean water supply because of changes in water pressure. Some of the chemicals used in lawn and garden maintenance can also potentially seep into the ground and contaminate your home’s water supply.
Industrial activities, agricultural runoff, and improper disposal of household waste can also significantly contribute to water pollution. These contaminants may comprise hazardous chemicals, heavy metals, or harmful microorganisms that pose a threat to human health.
No matter the underlying cause, poor water quality is something you should take seriously. If you have reason to believe your water supply may be contaminated, you should not wait to discuss your concerns with our team at PlumbRite.
Signs of Water Contamination in Your Home
Contaminated water can lead to a host of adverse consequences, impacting both health and quality of life. Contact with and consumption of contaminated water can cause serious health problems over time, and children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to these risks.
Contaminated water can also harm household appliances. The minerals and other substances present in hard water can build up over time, reducing the efficiency of water heaters, washing machines, dishwashers, and other appliances, eventually leading to premature failure. It can even affect the taste and appearance of your food and beverages.
By causing these unsightly and inconvenient problems, poor water quality can lower the overall comfort and safety of your home. Recognizing the signs of water contamination can help protect your home and family from potential harm.
You may need our water treatment installation and repair services in Omaha if you notice any of the following common indicators of poor water quality:
- Unusual Taste or Odor: If your water starts to taste metallic, bitter, or simply different than usual, it could be a sign of contamination. Likewise, unusual odors, like a rotten egg smell, can also indicate a problem.
- Discoloration. Your water should always be clear. Any observable coloration, whether it be yellow, brown, or cloudy, can suggest the presence of contaminants.
- Scale Deposits on Appliances. White, chalky deposits on your appliances that use water, like tea kettles and washing machines, are a sign of hard water, which has a high level of dissolved minerals.
- Health Symptoms. Recurring health issues such as gastrointestinal problems, dry skin and hair, or even specific diseases can all be linked to water contamination.
- Stained Laundry. If your clothes are getting stained or faded after washing, contaminated water could be the culprit.
Treating Contaminated Water
Treating contaminated water and making it safe to use requires a tailored approach involving one or more proven techniques. The effectiveness of each treatment method largely depends on the specific contaminants present in the water, which is why working with our trained professionals is so important.
Depending on your situation, we may recommend any of the following treatment methods:
- Filtration Systems. These are among the most common solutions for treating contaminated water. They work by physically trapping contaminants in a filter. The types of filters used can vary and target different contaminants. For instance, activated carbon filters can remove organic compounds and chlorine, while ceramic filters can filter out bacteria and parasites.
- Water Softeners. These systems are primarily used to treat hard water, which is high in minerals like calcium and magnesium. Water softeners work by replacing these minerals with sodium ions.
- Reverse Osmosis Systems. These systems use a semi-permeable membrane to filter out a wide range of contaminants, including heavy metals, pesticides, and bacteria.
- UV Purification. UV purification systems use ultraviolet light to kill bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms present in the water.
- Distillation. This process involves boiling water to produce steam, which is then condensed back into liquid form. This method effectively removes a wide range of contaminants.
Our water treatment installation and repair services include expert help in deciding which approach is right for your home or commercial property. Our plumbing technicians handle all aspects of the installation process and will be there to support you whenever your system needs maintenance or repairs.
