Is Your Water Safe to Drink?
One of the reasons to reach out to a plumber in Sun City, AZ, from Deer Valley Plumbing is because of concerns about the quality of your water. While the H2O that comes into your home is treated if it comes from a municipal source, this doesn’t necessarily mean it’s entirely safe to drink. Here’s how to make this determination.
Check Water Clarity
An easy way to tell if you’ll likely benefit from our water conditioning services is to take a look at your water. Pour a glass of water from your tap and see how clear it is. Water that’s safe to drink should appear clear, not cloudy, and be free of odor.
Look for Signs of ‘Hard’ Water
“Hard” water is so-named because it has a high concentration of minerals like calcium and magnesium. Water softener installation is worth considering if the quality of your water is being affected by water with high mineral content. Signs suggesting you have hard water include:
- Still having residue on your hands after washing them
- Seeing deposits in your drinking glasses and in your sinks
- Seeing visible spots on glasses and dishes
Consider Water Color and Taste
You may also benefit from our water purification services if you are noticing discolored water or H2O with an odd taste. Water that’s blue or greenish in color, for instance, may have elevated levels of copper. Other types of discoloration are associated with rust and high levels of certain chemicals. With taste, water with a metallic flavor could have excess iron and copper. Other chemicals and minerals can also affect water taste and make it not as safe to drink as it should be.
