Water Contaminants that Affect You

Unless problems with your water are so severe that you can taste them or see them, it’s not always easy to tell what’s wrong with your water. Here’s what’s plaguing your water supply:

  • Minerals: Ever heard of the term “hard water?” Well this is what makes the water “hard.” Water from our municipal supply here in Mission has a high amount of minerals like magnesium and calcium. Hard water isn’t harmful to your health, but it is harmful to your plumbing system because it causes long-term damage to your pipes. This mineral content often settles and hardens over time which can lead to nasty clogs and premature pipe replacement.
  • Chemicals: There are a vast amount of chemicals that can affect your water supply. Some of the most relevant ones include chlorine and fluoride because they’re often put into our water supply for disinfection purposes. If you’re sensitive to these substances and you don’t want them in your water you can install a water filtration system in your home.
  • Metals: Metals like aluminum, barium, and copper are all too common in your water supply. These substances aren’t necessarily dangerous in smaller quantities but they’re definitely not the best for the overall quality of your water.

Consuming all these contaminants in the water you drink can cause you to develop health issues. If you’re unsure about the quality of your water, we also offer water testing for your home to determine exactly what’s ailing you.
