Unfortunately, many homes are plagued by hard water. Without purified water, it can lead to all sorts of health problems, with some being more severe than others. Luckily, our expert technicians can recommend a purification system that works for your home.
Water purification is the process in which contaminants such as calcium, magnesium, and copper are removed from the water. This is done to ensure it’s fit for consumption. Here’s how it works: The water is pushed through a series of filters to remove minerals and contaminants. This starts with a taste and odor filter to remove sediment and silt. Next is typically a carbon or charcoal filter. Depending on the type of filter there may be as many as 5 different filters.
Here’s a list of contaminants that are removed:
In addition to the contaminants, there are a slew of other chemicals and substances in water. Contact us at Robert Bair Plumbing Heating and Air to test the quality of your water to ensure it’s safe for consumption.
Water purification is extremely important because of all the potential health risks that are involved.
Here are a few reasons as to why the purification process is important:
Reduced chlorine levels - Chlorine has been associated with health problems such as asthma and cardiovascular complications.
Bacteria levels are lowered - Bacteria such as E. coli cause severe illnesses if ingested. Some may cause minor symptoms like nausea and vomiting while others can become life-threatening.
