Mattioni: Providing Effective Water Conditioning for Chester County
There are two different ways your home can receive its water supply, public water or well water. Both have their pros and cons, but Mattioni believes it is important for every homeowner to be aware of the quality of their water. Your water could contain minerals that cause your water to have an unpleasant look, taste, or smell and also could affect your dishes, laundry, skin, and hair. Your plumbing systems could also be at risk, which could lead to costly repairs if there are issues with your water. For these reasons, we recommend getting your water tested yearly for the following:
- Hardness: Hard water can pose critical and grievous problems in plumbing systems. Water hardness is capable of producing breakdowns in boilers, water heaters, and other equipment that handles water. Hard water can also leave you with dry skin and damaged hair. In most residential settings, hard water is often indicated by poor soap or detergent performance and mineral buildup on plumbing fixtures.
- pH Balance: High acidic water can cause plumbing leaks in heating systems, water heaters, water tanks, pipes, and other components of your home plumbing systems. These leaks can lead to very costly damage to your home or your plumbing systems. Corrosive water can also dissolve copper into your drinking water.
- Iron: Iron in home’s water can cause stains on your laundry, dishes, and plumbing fixtures such as sinks that are yellow, red, or brown in color. Iron can clog up wells, pumps, and other devices such as dishwashers, which can lead to costly repairs. It also gives a metallic taste to your water and can affect food and beverages
- Total Dissolved Solids: An elevated level of total dissolved solids can result in your water having a bitter or salty taste. It also results in incrustations, films or corrosion on fixtures and reduces the efficiency of water filters and your plumbing equipment.
