There are a lot of false senses of security in the world. They creep into every aspect of our lives. Yes, even our plumbing systems.
Okay, that was pretty dramatic. But that doesn’t change the fact that a lot of homeowners do just assume that the quality of the water coming out of their taps is high. The truth is that even if you get your water from a municipal supply, your water quality may not be all that it should be.
But that’s okay.
Because our Sunny Plumbers are here to help. There is a lot that can go wrong with your water quality. But there are also solutions to just about any problem that you may encounter with your water quality. The trick is to find the right solutions—and that means identifying the problem accurately, first. That’s where our outstanding water testing in Las Vegas comes in.
What Could Be Wrong with My Water?
There are a lot of ways in which water may be contaminated. Not all of the issues that you face with water quality will have adverse health effects, mind you. However—some can. Take hard water, for example. Hard water is just water with too high of a mineral concentration. That can result in issues like buildups on fixtures or trouble cleaning your home’s surfaces effectively. It’s not a health hazard, but should be dealt with.
More serious issues may include the presence of harmful bacteria, lead in the water, and other such issues. Those homes with high-risk populations, like very young children, pregnant women, or the elderly, should definitely have their water tested, even if it comes from a municipal supply. While that water is treated, it can pick up such pollutants on the way to the house. And, if you use a private well on your property, you should be testing your water regularly!
What to Look For
There are a number of different warning signs that your water quality may not actually be that great. These include:
- Unpleasant taste
- Foul odor
- Gastric distress
- General illness
