There are many ways to make hard water soft and pure. Water softeners do a great job of removing harsh minerals that can damage large appliances, but they usually don’t purify drinking water. Thanks to technology, ways to whole-house purify water include:
- Dual ionization and oxygen electrodes to remove chemicals
- Electrical impulses to break minerals into CO2
- Reverse osmosis
- Water ionizers
Is Your Drinking Water Safe?
Some of the complaints received about Houston drinking water include:
- Algae/mold traces
- Visible worms
Yes, worms. Yeech! Some of these complaints could be related to old or bad plumbing pipes and not the water source.
Drinking water has long been suspect in cancer causes, and studies are conducted often. Conscientious homeowners have decided not to wait to be told their drinking water is risky; they’re doing something about it now.
Reverse Osmosis Benefits
In addition to affordability, a good RO (reverse osmosis) system may remove sodium, carcinogens, pesticides (when a carbon block filter is used), and other unwanted contaminants:
- cyst (cryptosporidium)
- nitrates and nitrites (hexavalent & trivalent)
- total dissolved solids (TDS)
The bad news is, RO may remove good minerals, too. Most homeowners and many water professionals agree: The value of reverse osmosis in removing carcinogens and contaminants far exceeds the risk of losing magnesium or calcium.
Reverse Osmosis for Your Home
The EPA says the watershed quality in The Woodlands is 61 on a scale of 0-100. This is only an indicator of your tap water; not a complete analysis. Tap or pitcher filters are very good, but they fail to purify your shower or bath water.
