Cosmic Difference in Your Life
Clean, healthy drinking water is an absolute. There’s no arguing this point, and it’s the responsibility of every municipality to provide its citizens with the highest quality water possible. And yet, water filtration is big business because somehow, some way, things get into our water that might not make it unpotable but not quite right. Gold Star’s experienced plumbers possess the know-how to make your water sparkle in so many ways by installing a whole house filtered water system or water filters that can be inserted under a sink, to a faucet or even a shower head.
When Is It Time for a Water Filter?
Your senses of taste and smell and maybe even sight might guide you to giving Gold Star a call to set up an appointment to consider a filtered water system. Just in case, here are some issues to consider:
- Water tastes bad. Municipal water systems can rid your water of possible toxins, but your water might still taste poorly because it is rich in mineral content and considered to be “hard water,” which also can lead to other problems. The water might also be treated at the municipal plant with chlorine to kill many impurities.
- Get the lead out. It wasn’t until 1986 that Congress banned the use of lead pipes but allowed those in the ground to remain. It’s estimated today there are still 15 million to 22 million Americans who use water for drinking, cooking and bathing that flows through lead pipes. If you live in a house that was built before 1986 and it still has its original pipes, most likely they are composed of lead. Consequently, you may have lead particles from the pipes or from lead used to solder copper pipes together floating in your water. If this is the case, water filtration is a must for the safety of your entire family, especially your children.
- Wash away frustration. No matter how often you wash your clothes, your whites are not white, and your colored clothing still looks dirty. Water laden with minerals (remember that hard water warning?) and chlorine hinder the ability for your washer to do its job. More laundry detergent and water are needed to get your clothes clean, but this might also ruin your clothing and raise your water bill. The same goes for any other scrubbing and cleaning around the house. Hard water simply negates soap from working effectively, and you might wind up with a serious case of “scrubber’s elbow.”
Fortunately, when you contact Gold Star, we can assess your dilemma and recommend what type of water filter will best fix your problem.
A Whole House Water Filtration System Makes Sense
A whole house water filtration system is installed where your main water line enters your house, and it cleans the water that flows through all of your pipes. While this is more expensive than putting in one or two water filters at specific sites, knowing your water is undergoing filtration at its source of entrance should give you real peace of mind.
A whole home water filtration system can be set up to soften your water, which results in less scale in your pipes and fixtures, minimal corrosion and fewer leaks. Your water-using appliances will last longer and work more efficiently, too. And, we didn’t even mention how this water filter system will provide you with ideal tasting and smelling water for drinking, cooking and bathing (crucial for those with sensitive skin). You can see why a whole house water filtration system is a worthwhile investment, especially with Gold Star’s highly rated plumbers assisting you every step of the way.
