Plumbing Myths Debunked

Typical well water is at high risk of contaminants such as bacteria/parasites, lead, and sediment.
The first decision you’ll need to make when installing a water filtration system is whether you want one filter to serve the whole house or to install one in select water dispensers. There are pros and cons to both options…
Individual water filters are cheaper if you just want to filter a couple water dispensers as opposed to the whole house. The downside, though, is that only certain sinks or showers will have filtered water and you will have to replace multiple filters every month.
Your sump pump system is your main line of defense against indoor flooding, but only if it is working! If you have a finished basement, or if you are storing valuables in an unfinished basement, you should take regular steps to ensure that your sump pump system is working.
To be well protected against the devastating financial losses associated with indoor flooding, you need to do the following:
- Test your sump pump now, before the torrential rains and power outages do it for you, AND
- Invest in a Battery Back Up Sump Pump if you don’t already have one.
What is a Water Softener?
A water softener is a system that removes minerals in water that make it ‘hard’, like Calcium and Magnesium. Hard water can cause a scaly buildup on your dishes, pipes, and appliances. It can also create soap scum, clogs, and corroded plumbing. Water softener repair is needed when mineral removal isn’t working at full capacity.
Soft water gives an extra boost to your detergents and makes your soap feel more slippery on your skin. Because of this, it’s recommended that you lower your soap/detergent usage after installing a water softener.
