Improving the Water that Impacts Your Family
Water Contamination Concerns
Water: we drink it, cook with it, make coffee, juice, and tea. Your home water supply should be of the highest quality to protect the health of you and your family. Most homeowners today replace at least some of their water with either bottled water or filtered water because they want to remove any contaminants that could impact the health of their family as well as the taste of the water. Aqua Life of Houston wants to eliminate this costly way of living by giving the homeowner bottled water quality straight from their faucets.
Did you know?
- The federal government has established legal levels of contaminants in drinking water
- Legal levels of contaminants do not necessarily mean the water is safe
- The legal limits for contaminants in our drinking water have not been revised in almost 20 years
Contaminants in Harris County Drinking Water
Unfortunately, if you reside in the Greater Houston Area, you are not immune to contaminants in the drinking water. Some of the contaminants knowingly found in our water include but may not be limited to:
- Bromochloroacetic acid
- Dibromoacetic acid
- Dichloracetic acid
- Haloacetic acids (HAA5)
- Hexadecenoic acids
- Metolachloracetic acid
- Total trihalomethanes (TTHM’s)
- Trichloroacetic acid
While we have little control over the guidelines used by the federal government for safe levels of contaminants in our water, we do have control over how we improve our water in our homes. Aqualife of Houston would love to discuss your specific water challenges and concerns and help you improve the quality of the water that you and your family drink, cook, clean, and bathe with.
In addition to improving the taste and safety of drinking and cooking water, deposits from these minerals will also interfere with the actions of household soaps combining to form soap scum which is then deposited on your dishes, your sinks, your showers, your tubs, your clothing and linens, your skin, and your hair. This soap scum creates that “squeaky” feeling on your skin and hair after you bathe. These unsightly deposits cause lots of extra household cleaning, which in some cases requires harsh toxic cleaning chemicals which are then introduced into the environment.
Protecting Your Home
Have you stopped to think about how hard Houston water is or how contaminated it may be? Common contaminants like calcium, lime, magnesium, and iron can and will prematurely plug up your plumbing, damage water-using appliances, and stain and plug up fixtures.
