Contaminants that Could Be in Your Water Supply

Nobody wants to drink dirty water, but it may be out of your control. If you get your water from the city, it goes through a treatment system to eliminate common contaminants found in your area and ensure the water is safe to drink.

However, there is typically still an acceptable level of contamination allowed to make it through. Yikes! Have your water tested as soon as possible, and consider installing your own water treatment system if any of these issues come up.

Nitrates and Ammonia

If these substances sound dangerous, it’s because they are. Sometimes, water testing reveals a small level of contaminants like nitrates and ammonia in the water. When this happens, we recommend that homeowners install water filtration system or even reverse osmosis systems to ensure the lowest possible number of contaminants.


Would you want chemicals in your children’s water? The municipal water supply could be full of chemicals like fluoride, chlorine, and chloramine. Chlorine is intended to kill germs in the water, but there are better ways to do this!

Some water filtration and purification systems are designed to remove chemicals like chlorine from the water. Ask your local plumber for more information.

Hard Water

If you have hard water, it can have a major effect on your plumbing system. Minerals like calcium and magnesium coat the inside of the water pipes and block the flow of water. Your faucets, fixtures, and drains lose their shine. In addition, they can ruin coffee makers, washing machines, showerheads, and dishwashers.

A water softener helps protect your plumbing system. We recommend this to many homeowners in the area, as our plumbing components tend to wear out too quickly around here.
