Is My Water Safe?

One of the first things you might do every morning is turn on a faucet or open a water bottle. But, do you really know how it’s affecting your home, your body, and your budget? How do you know if you have high quality water?

Even though city water goes through a process to be made safe for home use, contaminants and particles still slip through the city’s system and into your home. Those of you who have gotten a boiling water alert know this to be true. These elements can cause harm to your family and home and can lead to long-term health concerns for homeowners. These are some of the leading contaminants:

  • Lead
  • Cyanide
  • Turbidity
  • Calcium
  • Fluoride
  • Phosphates
  • Sulfates
  • Hydorcarbons
  • Sodium
  • Dissolved Solids
  • Chlorine
  • Pyrogens
  • Viruses
  • Salts
  • Bacteria
  • Pesticides
  • Proteins
  • Giardia
  • Cadmium
  • Magnesium

Some contaminants found in tap water have even been linked to cancer.

Concepts, Benefits and Principles

Hard Water

Is water with high levels of specific contaminants and minerals. These elements react to the chemicals found in soaps, resulting in “soap scum,” which is actually not soap or scum at all. This chemical reaction causes damage to skin and hair and can lead to bacteria being trapped in the skin. This can create uncomfortable and sometimes disruptive conditions that can detract from your quality of life. The effects of hard water on skin and hair may also make it necessary to invest in dermatology appointments or excess skin and hair products.

Those who live with specific and serious health concerns often require purified water in order to inhibit further damage to their bodies. When this is the case, city water will not suffice.


Health risks aside, build-up caused from hard water wears appliances down, making it necessary to repair and replace them at a much higher rate than households with soft water or conditioners running through their pipes. Imagine needing to replace a water heater every few years! The cost over time adds up to a staggering amount when compared to water heaters that need to be replaced only a third or fourth of the frequency of homes with hard water. This water also affects other building features, such as plumbing fixtures, washing machines, dish washers, and other household appliances.

Bottled Water

You may think of turning to bottled water solutions. However, the costs add up, and waiting in line at water kiosks or lugging cases from the store can eat up valuable time and effort that are precious commodities. If you do the math, the cost of purchasing bottled water for a family of four throughout the span of a year is more than the cost of a purification system. And you have to pay that year after year after year, whereas once a purification system is paid off, your money stops going out and the water keeps coming in. Bottled water also does nothing to address health concerns and appliance wear-and-tear.

Waiting to purchase or leasing to own a drinking water purification system just doesn’t make sense. A Reverse Osmosis drinking water system from Puretap does!
