If you get your water from the city, you should know that it goes through pretty extensive treatment facilities before it reaches you. That level of treatment removes a lot of harmful materials from your water, but it does not remove everything. There can occasionally be higher concentrations of harmful materials in your water than there should be. If you want to improve your water quality, the best thing to do is to install a water treatment system. Watch for these signs that you should install one.
It’s not exactly commonplace for tap water to be tasty. However, there’s a difference between tap water and tap water that tastes contaminated. Be careful of any water that tastes strongly metallic, or has any other really strong taste. This is not normal, and should not be ignored. Typically, this kind of thing means some sort of elemental contamination. Lead, copper, iron, and even cyanide are all common water contaminants that can affect homes across the country.
Every once in a while, your water may change colors for a brief period. For example, your water may be brown or red for a few seconds if you turn on your tap after a while of the water being off. This kind of thing usually means that you have rust in your plumbing system somewhere. However, prolonged discoloration usually means that there’s a more serious problem with your water supply. If your water is turning any kind of odd color, consider installing a water treatment system and see if that fixes the issue.
