Water filtration Systems for Your HomeDoes your tap water have an unpleasant taste, color or odor? Does it leave chalky deposits on your showerhead and dishes? Do your clothes feel stiff and scratchy after washing? Does your skin feel unseasonably dry and itchy?
If so, you may need to take a closer look at your tap water. Testing services are available to help you check for contaminants like bacteria, lead, copper, chlorine and pesticides, as well as hard water minerals like calcium, iron and magnesium. Armed with info, you can decide which level of water filtration is right for your home and your family.
For high levels of heavy minerals, a water softener might be a good option. This device uses a process called ion exchange to swap out the undesirable contaminants with harmless amounts of salt.
If you have a hard water problem, it's best to correct it sooner than later. Hard water can create unsightly tile scum, clog water lines and drains, and shorten the service life of your appliances, including the washing machine, dishwasher, coffee maker, water heater and ice maker. It may also cause more wear and tear on your clothing and linens, and make it harder to shower effectively since soap doesn't lather well with hard water.
