Water Testing in Santa Fe, NM
Learning which type of water treatment system is best for your home starts with water testing. Whether or not you’ve noticed anything unusual with your home’s tap water—funny smells, an odd taste, the occasional flake or discoloration—you might be surprised by the results. Common contaminants found during professional water testing include the following.
Be sure to work with professionals who can recommend and install the best (or most cost–effective) whole–house water treatment system for your home.
Water Filtration Systems
A water filtration system filters out particulate in the water along with some chemicals. In some cases, the filter cartridge is custom–selected to target contaminants common in your area. This is preferable to, say, a filtered water pitcher or a sink faucet filter which you have to change more often. In addition, every single faucet in your home, from the shower to the kitchen sink, is treated to give you peace of mind.
UV Water Purifiers
A UV water purifier uses ultraviolet light to kill off the contaminants that are often of greatest concern: living organisms like bacteria and viruses. The best part is that there is no filter to change, and the bulb lasts for much longer than a standard filter. As water passes by, any microorganisms in the water are sterilized.
Reverse Osmosis Systems
A reverse osmosis system is one of the most effective water treatment systems available. In industrial usage, reverse osmosis system is actually used in desalination—the conversion of ocean water to drinking water—so you know the process is effective. A thin membrane only allows nearly pure water through, and any contaminants left behind are flushed away. This type of system can be used for a single fixture or for the entire home.
A water softener is used in homes with hard water. Hard water is not a health hazard. It’s simply an excess of minerals like calcium and magnesium in the water supply. These minerals can get left behind in the pipes and in plumbing fixtures, causing a buildup that affects the way water pressure reaches your home. It’s particularly harmful in boilers and water heaters, so it’s always best to treat hard water sooner rather than later.
