By keeping an eye out for these signs, you’ll be able to protect yourself and your family from common health issues caused by common water pollutants.

Signs Your Home Requires a Water Filter

A water filter is necessary for many homes with a city water source. There are several signs you should watch for that indicate you’re in need of a water filtration system.

Bad-Tasting Water

Toxins or hard water minerals found in water can make it taste bad when you drink it. If you’re noticing your home’s drinking water tastes less than satisfactory, you should consider installing a water softener, filter, or both. With both systems, you can count on always having access to good-tasting and user-friendly water.

Your Water Has an Odd Smell

Yes, an odd smell to your water may be dreadfully unappealing, but that’s not the only negative impact smelly water has on you and your home. Water that smells like rotten eggs contains a high amount of sulfur, irritating the eyes, nose, throat, and respiratory system.

Other reasons your water may smell bad are chlorine, algae, lead, even rotting animal matter might be the culprit. So, if your water starts to smell funky, you should get your water tested and filtration installed.

You Live in an Old House

Lead wasn’t banned from the water supply until 1986. If your home was built before that year, you and your family could be utilizing a hazardous water source. Consider installing a water filtration system to prevent ingesting this common toxin in your older home. A filter will effectively remove any lead found in the supply.

Your Water Supply Comes From a Well

While many private wells produce water that is perfectly safe to use, some wells may contain chemicals, metals, and pesticides. To maximize your well water supply’s safeness and usability, add a whole-house water filtration system to your home.

Dirty Utensils, Dishes, and Sinks

If you’re noticing a surface or object that appears especially dirty after you’ve scrubbed it down, you may be dealing with a water issue. Hard and contaminated water will leave a residue on your surfaces even after cleaning. To enhance your cleaning experience, add a water filter and water softener to your home.

Appliance Breakdown

Hard water is corrosive to every part of your home it touches. Hard water is to blame if your appliances like the dishwasher, fridge, or laundry machine struggle to perform. The best route to remove hard water is to install a water softener. However, installing a water filtration system with it will filter out any bits of minerals your water softener may have missed, giving you clean and soft water for your appliances and beyond.

Dry Skin After Showering

If your skin feels dry after showering, the culprit is either high chlorine levels or minerals in your water. A water filtration system will sift out chemicals like chlorine and other contaminants that make your skin dry after showering.

Your Water Isn’t Fully Clear

Have you poured water from the faucet into a glass that wasn’t clear right away? Non-clear water is a sure sign of contamination to some degree. If your tap water has tints of brown or red or has tiny bits floating in it, you should get your water tested and immediately install a filtration system.
