No one should have to worry about the safety of the water running through their home’s pipes. Tap water is vulnerable to mineral buildup, which contaminates or hardens the water. Contaminated tap water can smell foul, cause a lot of health problems if ingested, cause skin issues after bathing, and create a lot of other problems for your home. Mineral buildup is a common problem, but there are multiple water treatments designed to help keep your water pure and safe.

Types of Water Treatments

Most plumbing companies offer a few different types of water treatment systems. However, it can be difficult to figure out which water treatment system will best suit your needs. Some homeowners want healthier tap water for drinking while others are more interested in having a soothing bathing experience with softer water. No matter what your water treatment needs are, you can rest assured that there are many options to choose from and that your professional plumber can help you select the best one for your home. Some of the most common and effective water treatment solutions include water softeners, water conditioners, and reverse osmosis systems.

Water Softeners

One of the most popular water treatment systems among homeowners is water softeners. This water treatment solution is designed to target hard water and neutralize its buildup of minerals such as calcium and magnesium. The result is much softer, cleaner water. Some of the benefits of water softeners include:

  • Cleaner dishes out of the dishwasher.
  • Softer and brighter clothing after doing laundry.
  • Feeling cleaner after bathing with softer skin and hair.

Water Conditioners

This is a more affordable water treatment solution. Like water softeners, water conditioners can help create a more soothing bathing experience. The difference is water conditioners also positively impact your tap water’s purity, including its taste and smell. If you are looking for a cost-effective water treatment that will solve multiple problems, water conditioners may be your best solution.

Reverse Osmosis Systems

If you are looking for a solution to having pure and healthy tap water that you can drink every day, then we highly recommend a reverse osmosis system. Reverse osmosis systems feature a semi-permeable membrane which the water is filtered through. This removes minerals of all sizes down to the tiniest pieces that you can’t even see. This is by far one of the most innovative solutions for purified tap water.
