We all use the tap water in our California homes for a variety of things. From cooking and washing our clothes to daily bathing and drinking…but is the tap water in your home safe?
If you receive your water from a municipal public water system in the U.S., the tap water coming into your California home is considered to be generally safe. The Environmental Protection Agency sets health standards concerning the contaminants in the public drinking water that must be maintained and monitors public water systems to enforce these limits.
While your city tap water does meet set safety standards, that does not make it 100% contaminant free. This is why many people choose to use a home water treatment system for their Southern California home. Here are the most popular types of filters used:
- Reverse Osmosis Units – When used with carbon, reverse osmosis systems work well to remove sodium and nitrates from tap water.
- Activated Carbon Filters – Removes organic contaminants that can have a major effect on how the water tastes and smells.
- Distillation Systems- This type of home water treatment system boils the water and condenses the steam, which creates distilled water for your home.
- Ion Exchange Treatment Systems – These water treatment systems have activated alumina and can remove hard water culprits like calcium and magnesium. This works well in tandem with other filtration solutions like reverse osmosis.
