Doctors say drinking eight glasses of water a day is good for your health. That’s tough for some people to do even if their water tastes good, but what if it has a bad aftertaste? If this is the case, a water treatment system will benefit you. The local plumbers at A. Stevens Plumbing & Heating have been serving Orange County, NY, residents since 1986. Here, they explain what these systems are and how they’ll help you.
What Is a Water Treatment System?
Water treatment systems improve the taste and quality of the liquid by removing chemicals and hardness and by regulating its pH. Three frequently used types are water softeners, reverse osmosis systems, and water filters. These systems can be used alone or in a combination recommended by your plumber.
How Will It Benefit You?
Some of the substances that contribute to bad-tasting water are iron, which causes a metallic taste, and sulfur, the source of that “rotten egg” smell. Treatment systems remove large amounts of these, improving the taste of the liquid. They also balance and raise the pH of the water to ensure your supply lines and fixtures aren’t corroded.
Finally, treatment systems soften the water. Hardness doesn’t usually affect the taste, but hard water contains higher amounts of calcium and magnesium and leaves white stains on faucets and sinks. Plumbers can install softeners or treatment systems that contain them to rectify this.
