Why Do I Need Water Treatment Solutions?
Your municipal water supply originates from a well, river, lake, or another water source, with chlorine added for safety, as it is transported into your home through the main water line.
However, municipal water supplies are not immune to contamination. An error made during treatment can affect the amount of chlorine that ends up in the water supply. Contaminants may enter your water supply through deteriorating pipes. Sewage released during a flood may contaminate municipal water systems.
Moreover, Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), commonly known as "forever chemicals," are cause for concern in municipal and well water supplies. High levels of certain PFAS may lead to increased cholesterol in the human body, changes in liver enzymes, and an increased risk of kidney cancer, along with other medical issues.
Water treatment solutions add an extra layer of protection to your city water supply by installing a drinking water system in your home.
Water Treatment Installation
Homeowners have several different options. There is no one-size-fits-all solution that’s always best. Our professionals will give good advice on which option will be best for your home and needs. For example:
- If you have silt and dirt in your water, you might need whole-house sediment filtration and a drinking water system.
- If testing shows bacteria and viruses are the problems, an ultraviolet (UV) disinfection system may be the solution.
- A point-of-use carbon filter or reverse osmosis system works with your drinking water tap. We typically install these systems under the kitchen sink, where they screen out contaminants such as arsenic, lead, and nitrates.
- If you want to treat all water running through your plumbing, we can recommend a whole-house system tailored to meet your needs.
When you use the correct system and filters, you can consume your city water confidently, knowing it is clean and safe to drink.

Water Treatment Maintenance
Like any other appliance, your water treatment system benefits from preventative maintenance. A little TLC—tender loving care--extends the system’s life and reduces the likelihood of major repairs or breakdowns. That starts with proper care of the filters.
Like the air filter in your furnace or car, water treatment filters must be replaced or cleaned regularly. How often they need replacement depends on the system, how much water you use, and what is in your water.
Filters overdue for cleaning or replacement may no longer adequately block contaminants. You may not realize the filter has worn out unless the water clarity, color, smell, or taste changes. In some cases, such as lead filtration, you cannot see, taste, or smell lead in drinking water.
If your lead filtration filter fails, you risk significant health consequences by drinking the water in your home. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that drinking water can account for a person's total exposure to lead. Children with low levels of lead in their blood can experience behavior problems, lower IQ, hearing problems, and anemia. Adults can suffer from increased blood pressure, decreased kidney function, and reproductive issues.
Filters are not the only parts that need attention. If a valve, tank, connector, or another part fails, other system components may not function properly. We’ll keep an eye out for worn parts and leaks in your water softener. We’ll clean the brine and resin tanks. Other routine inspection services include checking the valves, the system motor, and the regeneration timer. A water softener can last 15 to 20 years with regular maintenance.
