How Your Plumbing Affects Your Water Quality

Indoor plumbing is a modern-day convenience that plays a significant role in your family’s everyday life. Our plumbing fixtures must work correctly for our comfort and health. However, more often than not, homeowners forget the relationship between their pipes and their water supply.

The state of your plumbing has a tremendous impact on the quality of water you receive from your faucets and taps. Here’s how you can ensure that your plumbing fixtures aren’t lessening the quality of water your family consumes daily:

How Plumbing Affects Your Water Quality

Many customers come to us with concerns that they have ‘hard water‘ without knowing why or how. When minerals build up inside your water heating or supply pipes, it can be dislodged and carried along with your water. These minerals will dissolve into your water source unless you remove them with a filtration system or water softener. Over time, the high mineral content in your water supply can cause the performance and appearance of your home’s appliances and plumbing fixtures to decrease. Your dishwasher and sinks may risk developing leaks.

How to Maintain Your Plumbing

Ultimately, excellent plumbing helps to ensure that you stay comfortable in your home. You can protect your water supply by maintaining your pipes and plumbing fixtures properly. Though maintenance requires time and money, the overall cost is still less than shelling out dollars for major plumbing repairs for leaks or a burst pipe.  Reduce the wear and tear on your plumbing by scheduling routine appointments with your local plumber. They will check your pipes, water heater, and fixtures to ensure that they’re all working efficiently.

At Aquarius Water Conditioning, our professional master plumbers and plumbing technicians are experts at troubleshooting and repairing all types of leaks and problem plumbing situations.

Kinetico is an essential part of my home because I care about my health.  Kinetico K5 drinking system removes 99% of contaminants, including chlorine, out of my drinking water.  Not only can I taste the difference, but I feel good knowing that I am only consuming clean pure water.  When you have kinetico, less plastic water bottles are used, which is beneficial to our environment.
