We all need to drink water, and when we do, we want it to be of good quality. Drinking water from a faucet can be hit or miss depending on the water source and system. Other factors affecting the water we drink include pesticides, heavy metals, household chemicals and bacterial contaminants.
Water-quality concerns extend further when we consider all that goes into the water and sewage systems we share with our neighbors. Many forms of waste such as old food, discarded medications and dirty bath water collect in a central depository called a reclamation center. There, the water is processed and then reintroduced to the potable water system with added minerals and high amounts of chlorine and fluoride.
If you don’t like the taste, look, color or smell of your faucet water, you might already be using bottled water or another water dispenser. At the same time, you’re still cooking, bathing and brushing your teeth with the water that runs through your faucets.
The Refreshing Solution: Whole-House Water Filtration Systems
Aquaduct Plumbing specializes in whole-house water filtration systems in the Fox Valley region. For about the cost of a cup of coffee per day, you can enjoy truly fresh water from your faucet for years without the need for separate filters and system maintenance.
A whole-house water filtration system removes impurities from water to make it healthier and more enjoyable for consumption. Water filtration contributes to water that tastes, smells and looks better.
The filter is installed in your main water line. As water enters the filter, it passes through granulated activated carbon that removes the impurities. From there, the purified water leaves the canister filter and flows into your home.
Beyond having cleaner, better-tasting water, you benefit from greatly reduced chlorine and fluoride, which preserves the life of plumbing, fixtures and water-using appliances. It also decreases your dependency on bottled water and the plastic waste it generates.
Another Fresh Alternative: Water Conditioning
Aquaduct Plumbing enhances water quality through the installation of water conditioners, which remove harmful chemicals such as chlorine from water.
Water conditioners don’t soften water, but by removing harmful chemicals, they still reduce the effects of hard water on pipes, faucets and drains. Many homeowners also prefer water conditioners over water softeners because they use much less water, require less maintenance and typically cost less to install.
