Doesn't The City Take Care Of Our Water?

Many Americans take for granted the water that comes from the taps in their home. Most people don't even think about it.

When you turn on the faucet in the kitchen or bathroom, you want to know the water is safe to drink or use. No one wants their family to deal with water that is unsafe. The utility companies take on the biggest responsibility of making sure the water is safe to use. But there are some things you can do to ensure the highest water quality in your home.

If you are thinking, “doesn’t my water company already take care of my water?” The answer is yes. Water is regularly tested by federal standards that look to test for microbial pathogens, radioactive elements, and organic and inorganic chemicals. However, an important thing to keep in mind is that regular tests are performed at the source. After that, the water needs to travel through miles and miles of pipes, some over 100 yrs old, to get to your home. This means that the water quality that comes to your home can be entirely different than what the water companies have tested.

Hardness in the water is not an issue that water companies regulate. They are not required to provide you with soft water. Here in Northern New Jersey, we have some very hard water.

Symptoms of Hard Water include:

  • Stiff, dingy laundry

  • Mineral deposits on dishes and glassware

  • High soap usage & need for fabric softeners

  • Extra work to remove soap curd on bathtubs & shower stalls

  • High energy costs, possibly due to scale build-up in pipes and on appliances

  • Scale build up in sinks, tubs, faucets & appliances

By installing a water softener from Tri State Water or a Tri State Water Drinking System, you are investing not only in your water quality but guaranteeing your family will have the freshest, cleanest water possible – free of any substances like calcium that cause problems with your hair, skin, appliances, dishes, and clothes.

Here at Tri State Water, we are committed to helping homeowners get better water quality for their homes and family. To find out how to get better water for your family book a quick call with us.
