City Water Systems
The Water Source offers various water treatment and purification options for homeowners on city water systems that remove up to 98% of impurities in water. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires cities to disinfect and treat the water to kill bacteria and other harmful contaminants, but it doesn’t require zero contaminants. The drinking water may still contain varying amounts of minerals, additives, and other impurities such as calcium, iron, manganese, chlorine, fluoride, and even arsenic. Some individuals are sensitive to chlorine and fluoride that are common in city water.
Contaminants may still be present
Although the EPA considers low levels of certain impurities in water safe to consume, do you really want to drink or clean with water that contains pollutants – even if it is a small amount? Moreover, as the water travels to your home or business, it can pick up bacteria and other contaminants in the underground network of water pipes that connect your water main and plumbing lines to your main water connection. Communities, homes, and businesses with older metal water pipes often contain elevated iron, lead, and bacteria levels due to corrosion. Many homes with city water systems have hard water that produces a reddish-orange or brown stain on sinks, toilets, clothing, and plumbing fixtures. Hard water can also damage plumbing and shorten the life expectancy of your water heater and other appliances.
Common city water problems
Hard water is the most common problem with city water systems. The degree of hardness depends on the level of minerals and metals, including iron, calcium, magnesium, and other dissolved solids in the well. The scale deposits in hard water clog plumbing fixtures and drains, reddish-orange, or brown stains on fixtures. It damages appliances like the water heater, dishwasher, and washing machine.
Sulfites and other impurities may be naturally present in groundwater as it is pumped into the city water system. Hydrogen sulfide gas is created when exposed to oxygen, usually when you turn on the faucet. It has a foul “rotten egg” smell and can also give the water a sour taste. Yellow stains on laundry, dishes, coffee maker, and other appliances and plumbing fixtures are also common.
Most city water systems use chemical disinfection, such as chlorine and chloramine, which can still be present in your household water. In addition to causing skin and hair dryness, it can damage appliances and make your laundry look dull. It also has a strong odor and aftertaste. Also, most cities add fluoride to the water, which can cause fluorosis when too much of it is consumed.
