Your home’s water supply plays a vital role in the safety and function of your space. While the United States has regulations that ensure your water is safe to drink, there are other contaminants that affect the quality of your water, which in turn affects your water’s taste and appearance, and can have damaging side effects on your appliances.
A common concern for homes throughout Florida is ‘hard water’. This term refers to water that has a high concentration of minerals, specifically Calcium and Magnesium. These minerals give the water a cloudy appearance and can have a surprising impact on your home.
Impacts of hard water include:
- Leaves soap scum or detergent buildup on clothes and dishes
- Creates a metallic or “funny” taste to your drinking water
- Lowers your water pressure
- Corrodes metal pipes
- Produces limescale on your pipes, causing clogs or leaks
- Damages appliances like dishwashers, washing machines, and garbage disposals
In addition to water hardness, your home’s water supply can be contaminated with small levels of biological or chemical materials that can potentially cause health problems or damage to your pipes, including bacteria, viruses, ammonia, nitrates, or lead.
A whole-home water filtration system will attach to your main water line and actively filter these contaminants out before it ever reaches your tap. The best way to decide if a whole-home filtration system is right for your property is by contacting an experienced plumbing professional. A technician can evaluate your water and offer recommendations that fit your needs perfectly.
Not All Water Filters Are Created Equally
While technology around water filtration has grown immensely in the last few years, not every water filter is created to the same standards and with the same goals in mind. Some are built specifically for hard water, with others are designed for complete protection. One brand that continues to lead the charge in water filtration technology is Flow-Tech.
Flow-Tech offers an anti-scale system that not only reduces your exposure to harmful contaminants, but also removes the hardness from your water, and actively removes buildup from your pipes! All of this is done whether or not water is flowing through the pipes, which means your system is working even when you aren’t using your taps.
Why install a Flow-Tech anti-scale system:
- Zero maintenance required
- Increases your water heater’s efficiency
- Extends the life of your appliances
- Remove scale and prevent future buildup
- Eco-friendly filtration
