What’s the Best Water Treatment System for Your Family?
When you turn on the tap to get yourself a glass of water, do you ever stop to take a good look at what’s in that glass? As the water swirls around and the little bubbles start to dissipate, you wonder, “What’s really in this water?” A quick glance around the sink tells you there’s definitely some calcium and magnesium in the water, because crusty little water spots form unless you remember to wipe up the excess water every time it splashes. Just imagine how the inside of the faucet looks!
Families in Meade and Polk Counties here in Central Florida rely on the municipal water treatment authorities to provide clean water to their households, but even they admit that it’s impossible, even with their state of the art equipment, to remove all foreign materials from the water. In fact, the disinfectants (like chlorine) that they add to the water to kill off microbial invaders can also pose serious health risks. Besides that, once the water leaves the treatment plant, it has to travel through several miles of piping systems, some of which are in varying degrees of degradation. This means that everything from excess copper and lead (from deteriorating pipes) to p-Dichlorobenzene (discharge from chemical factories) could be floating around in that glass!
If that isn’t enough to spur you on to a search for the best water treatment options for your family, remember that, in addition to possible health problems, hard water can take a toll on just about every area of your home. Build up in your pipes from hard water deposits can significantly decrease the efficiency and operation of your pipes and water-using appliances. This can shorten the lives of those appliances by nearly 30 percent, while inflating your energy costs by 25 percent. It can make your clothes dingy and scratchy, make your kitchenware look spotty and dull, make your skin dry, and leave your wallet thinner.
