Potential problems with your tap water
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets standards on water safety. There are a mind-boggling 90 contaminants with legal limits in the water you drink every day, not counting those currently unregulated. Not all have a limit of zero, so it is no wonder that it may not always taste good.
The flavor of the liquid coming out of your tap is also dependent on the type you have. Soft water is typically considered the better-tasting water. Hard water—which most homes here in Fresno have—often contains higher-than-normal levels of magnesium and calcium. Although not dangerous to drink, it often has a distinct unpleasant odor and taste.
In addition to a bad taste, contaminated or hard water can cause other difficulties for your home. It makes showering less efficient, leaving soap scum on the tub and on you. Residue can clog pipes and decrease the effectiveness of appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines.
Your options in water filtration systems
The best Fresno water filtration system is the one that fits you and your specific needs. One option is to have a professionally installed whole-house filtration system. The benefit of this type of structure is that it filters out contaminants and neutralizes hard water without the need for added sodium.
Two other options include in-line filtration or a water heater guard. An in-line system is fitted onto pipes to reduce corrosion and buildup. The water heater guard protects your heater from a buildup of sediment that decreases the longevity of the appliance.
