Bacteria, virus, algae, mold, lead, mercury… words we are all familiar with; none of which belong in our drinking water! Out of all of the utilities we utilize, water is the only one we consume internally by drinking. Gillece asks, how safe is yours?
Are you seeing soap scum build-up? Feeling dry and itchy? Is your water cloudy? Does it smell? Taste bad? Even though the proper authorities and water companies test and report our water for certain contaminants and impurities, it’s inevitable that some go untested and may pass through… which can lead up to unpleasant and even dangerous qualities in this essential utility.
The good news is that there is something you can do; and, Gillece Services can help to make a difference. Our FREE Water Quality Inspection can reveal potential issues with the water in your home or office that may be affecting the quality of its uses, as well as your own health. From cleaning clothes or washing dishes to taking a shower or drinking a glassful, water is one of the most vital components of our daily lives and should not be overlooked. Though many of us often do; don’t let this be you and your family, or your business.
Common negative, problematic characteristics often associated with our tap water can include:
- Chlorine Water – While a key ingredient in water treatment and protection, too much chlorine can be a bad thing. It is not uncommon for water to contain an overabundance of chlorine. It smells strong and tastes bad. And, it quickly and intensely is absorbed by your skin, drying out both your skin and hair, causing itchiness and flakiness. When the chlorine level is too rampant in water, so are these related problems.
- Hard Water – Water containing dissolved calcium, magnesium, iron, and manganese is “hard.” These metals can combine with other compounds creating soap scum spots and hard water scales or stains. Hard water interferes with lathering of body soap, shampoo, and the functionality of other cleaning products. It can even create scale build-up inside the pipes of your appliances, resulting in very costly repairs. It may wear out your clothing up 30x faster. And, did you know that Instantaneous Water Heaters require softened water in order to work properly?
- Cloudy Water – Sometimes cloudiness in water can be confused with harmless air bubbles, yet it very often can be a reason for concern. In drinking water, the cloudier the water appears, the higher the risk of it containing impurities in the form of suspended solids. Suspended solids interfere with water disinfection which shields water against viruses and bacteria. Cloudy water is not a healthy alternative.
- Water Odor/Bad Taste – Hydrogen sulfide in water results in a fowl smelling water similar to that of a rotten egg. In addition, musty, earthy or fishy smelling water is the result of algae, mold and bacteria. Metallic tasting water is usually the result of elevated levels of actual metals in your water. We all deserve water that smells and tastes good.
