Find Out What Contaminants Are In Your Water

3 Things You Didn’t Know Are in Your Home’s Water

Water quality issues in places like Flint, MI, have driven home the need for water filtration. Municipal supplies and well water quality aren't the only factors. Old plumbing inside a home or environmental factors specific to a given area are often to blame for low-quality water.

Here are three common drinking water contaminants you might not know about:

1. Algae

Does your water taste dirty, musty or even fishy? Algae is probably to blame, though it might not be from your municipal water supply. Bacteria can grow in water pipes under the street and inside your home. Thankfully, these growths usually won’t make you sick -- but they might make you smell like it.

2. Copper

If drinking straight from the tap leaves a bitter taste in your mouth, corrosive pipes are probably to blame. Old copper pipes used in early infrastructure have started to break down. The same is true for copper pipes in older homes. You’ll have to test water at your tap and at the intake to your home to uncover where the problem lies.

3. Chlorine

Likely the most common complaint, an “Eau de Chlorine,” is often caused by cleaning agents added to water supplies. In some areas, the agent is chlorine. In other, the agent reacts with particles in the water to create a similar smell or taste. A whole-home filtration unit by Halo Water Systems will prevent you and your water from smelling like the local pool.

“Senior technician, Joe Anderson, made plumbing repairs to an upstairs bathtub to seal leaks from flooding through kitchen ceiling downstairs. This has been an ongoing serious daily problem in this apartment since April 2015. Mr. Anderson was the first person to have a camera system with him to assess areas where water was accessing kitchen ceiling. He explained in detail what he did and what he found wrong. Water had been flowing from next door apartment whenever they used their shower for over a year now. Mr. Anderson stated he needed to get permission from apartment management office in order to proceed to correct issues in next door apartment. Management has not allowed that access yet. He also noted that a single shower curtain in the apartment next door was on the outside of that tub and felt that could be creating some of the flooding issues. Thank you Mr. Anderson for being my angel and making these repairs.” –-Lyda G.
