19 Aug How to Ensure You Have Good Quality Water
From having something cool and refreshing to drink to washing your dishes and clothes, you rely pretty heavily on your water supply. But what if we were to tell you that, even if it seems alright, your water might not be in the best shape? Don’t worry — there are several things you can do to ensure you have good quality water for your entire family.
Run the Water
If you haven’t used your sink or shower for several hours, the water that would come out of those spouts can become stale while it waits around in your pipes. To avoid using this water, run your tap for a minute or two, do some laundry, or run the dishwasher. All of these ways will get the water in the pipes moving to improve your water quality.
Replace Your Water Filters
If you have a water filtration system on your kitchen sink to provide you with clean drinking water, it’s essential to keep up with changing the filter. If you leave a filter on past its prime, you’ll be drinking dirty water, since the filter is no longer able to catch any contaminants for bacteria. You also will inhibit the flow of that fixture.
Replace Your Pipes
Unfortunately, your home’s plumbing is not meant to last a lifetime. If you live in an older home, your pipes can easily corrode and allow metal particles to flow through your home’s water, making it important to have your pipes inspected and replaced when necessary.
Install a Filtration System
When you want fresh, clean drinking water, the best way to get that is by installing a water filtration system. Whether you have hard, metallic-tasting, or odd-smelling water, or you simply want to ensure your water has no contaminants, a filtration system can get you the clean and crisp water you desire.
