Your home’s water supply is incredibly important to your daily life. You use it to cook, clean, bathe, do laundry, run the dishwasher, and, most importantly, to drink. So when there’s something wrong, you want to solve the problem as soon as possible. If you smell rotten odors in your water, notice residue or strange colors from your tap, or if it tastes unpleasant, there may be contaminants in your supply that can be found with water testing. When you ask a professional to test your water in Catalina, you may be able to find a solution that keeps your water clear and refreshing. Here are some of the problems a professional plumber may find in your home when you schedule water testing.
Common Problems with the Water Supply
- Chlorine/Chloramine: These chemicals are often added to the public water supply for disinfection. However, some homeowners react negatively to these additives, so you may want to know if chlorine or chloramine is affecting your health.
- Other Contaminants: Other contaminants may enter your water supply through the ground or well water. These may include arsenic, insecticides, fertilizer, and petroleum products.
- Hard water: Another common problem is a high level of calcium and magnesium, called “hard water.” Hard water is usually not a health hazard, but it may cause mineral deposits to build up in your pipes and damage your plumbing. It can also cause problems for appliances in your home such as dishwashers and washing machines.
