City Water Treatment
Though city water is treated by your municipality, often times the result can still produce hard water as well as bacteria and more often than not large amounts of chlorine which is used in the water treatment process by the water authority. Many of the same issues that are found with well water are also found in city water, albeit to a lesser degree in some areas such as scale build up and staining. With city water the primary issues are the taste and odor of the water as well as the chlorine content, and depending upon where you live water hardness can also still be an issue. Other contaminants often found in drinking water listed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) include:
- Microbial Contamination
- Chemical Contamination from Fertilizers
- High Nitrate Levels
- Lead Contamination
A water purification system coupled with a water softener is the ideal system for those with city water. Many of the contaminants if not all can only be removed from your water using a water treatment system. According to the EPA, even boiling the water will not remove or kill harmful contaminants found in standard tap water. For the full EPA report on tap water click here.
