Categories of Contaminants
According to the EPA, there are four major categories of drinking water contaminants: physical, chemical, biological and radiological. The most common contaminants in U.S. homes are physical, which “primarily impact the appearance or other physical properties of water.” Physical contaminants include sediment or organic material derived from soil erosion. Chemical contaminants are also common and contain elements or compounds either naturally occurring or man-made. Some examples of chemical contaminants include bleach, salt, pesticides, metals and nitrogen – to name a few. Biological and radiologial contaminants are far more dangerous and not a threat to Glendora water systems. Our water experts can help isolate the contaminants in your drinking water and recommend the best solutions for remedy.
Comprehensive Water Testing
Over-the-counter water filters are not enough to combat certain common Glendora contaminants. If your drinking water contains a high concentration of minerals or chemicals, you will need a strong filtering system to eradicate them completely. To determine the type of water treatment best for your household, your water will need to be tested. Accurate Electric, Plumbing, Heating, and Air provides complete water testing, including checks for pH balance, hardness, lead, iron levels, nitrates, bacteria and other contaminants. Though many of these problems are not visible to the naked eye, there are certain signs that a homeowner should note. If you notice a discoloration of your plumbing fixtures, water with an odd smell or taste or a prominent residue in sinks and tubs – your water needs to be tested and treated.
Water Treatment Systems
Once our experts have diagnosed the contaminants in your drinking water, they will recommend the best treatment options for your home. There are several filtration systems on the market, the simplest use charcoal to filter out sediment. The most common contaminant in U.S. homes is sediment or debris built up from your plumbing system – or found in your water supply. If this is the case, a regular over-the-counter drinking filter would be sufficient for your home. But in certain cases, specialty filtration cartridges are necessary. Contaminants such as nitrates or sulfur require cartridges integrated into the current water filtration system. Some situations necessitate filters that must be checked frequently and calibrated to the specific contaminant levels of the water.
Water Softeners and Reverse Osmosis
If your home has hard water, it contains high concentrations of dissolved minerals. A water softener uses a process called ionization to replace the calcium and magnesium ions with sodium ions. If your water is hard (or has a very low pH balance), it might need a reverse osmosis treatment as well. Water softeners (also referred to as conditioners) are often used in combination with a reverse osmosis device. They are used together to help ensure salinity (a high amount of salt) doesn’t start to build up in your drinking water. This can sometimes occur with the sole use of a conditioner. When used together, they are most effective treatments for hard water and can remove almost all potential contaminants from your home.
