Some people seem to think that the fact that they get their water from a municipal supply means that they don’t have to worry about their water quality at all. That’s not really the truth. We’re not here to instill a sense of dread in our readers, of course, but the fact of the matter is that there are a lot of different problems that may develop with your water quality, and for a lot of different reasons.
In today’s post, we are going to explore some of the reasons why your water quality in Corona, CA, may be lacking. While you are not in a position to install the types of systems necessary for improving water quality in most cases—not in a comprehensive manner, at least—having some understanding of the potential issues is still beneficial. So read on, and reach out to a Sunny Plumber on our team if you think that your water quality is not all that is can be.
The Water Treatment Process Itself
Yes, you read that correctly. If you notice a bleach or chlorine taste to the water coming from your taps, it could actually be a direct result of the water treatment process itself. This is something of a double-edged sword. The treatment process is necessary to make your water as safe to drink as possible, but you don’t necessarily want to be drinking water that doesn’t taste good, either. Fortunately, a fairly basic whole-house water filtration system can likely resolve the issue.
Agricultural Activity Nearby
If you live near an agricultural area or farmland, then there is a possibility that the different fertilizers and materials used on that farm can get into the ground and affect the quality of the water in the area. This could potentially result in issues more serious than the standard “my water doesn’t taste great” complaints. If you do live in such an area, contact us to have your water tested and to figure out the next steps for improving the situation.
Your Plumbing System
Wait, what? You mean to tell me that my plumbing system—the plumbing system that I rely on to bring potable water into my home—may be working against me?
Unfortunately, yes. In fact, the plumbing system in our customers’ homes often play a role in this scenario. How is this possible?
Old pipes, frequently. If you have very old pipes, they may be rusting or degrading and tainting water that is actually of a high quality when it enters your system. You may have a leak in a main water line that is allowing pollutants from the ground surrounding it to get in. Whatever the case, you know the solution. Get a Sunny Plumber on the case! We test water, we do video pipe inspection, we offer full water treatment system and plumbing repair services—whatever it takes to get you the outstanding water that you deserve in your home!
