Common Water Contaminates in Texas Homes

As another year unfolds, why not present your family and yourself with the gift of exceptional health and unparalleled comfort? In Central Texas, particularly for homeowners in San Antonio, where hard water woes are all too familiar, water softening is the answer to a multitude of common water contaminants. But the benefits extend far beyond the surface. Join us on this journey to discover how embracing water softeners can transform your Central Texas home, ensuring pure, clean water for you and your loved ones, and bidding farewell to the relentless grip of hard water.

Water Softeners Remove Minerals and Contaminants

Ever wondered why so many people refuse to drink water out of the kitchen faucet and instead, only drink bottled water? Yes, it’s partially because bottled water tastes much better. But it’s also because in many places in the U.S., the water from the municipal water supply or well contains minerals and contaminants that make it “hard” and unhealthy.

For those who are unfamiliar with the term “hard water,” it’s water that contains high levels of calcium and magnesium. These minerals cause sediment build-up in plumbing and appliances… and they can also impact your health. They can leave your skin flaky and itchy, and make your hair and nails dry and brittle. Some experts also believe that they contribute to heart disease.

7 Contaminants That Pollute Water In Central Texas

However, there are more contaminants in the water in Texas. According to the Environmental Working Group, seven chemicals in Austin water exceed health guidelines:

  • dichloroacetic acid
  • bromochloromethane
  • dibromochloromethane
  • total trihalomethanes
  • chloroform
  • total haloacetic acids
  • bromoform

Take a moment to let that sink in: when you drink water from the faucet, you’re drinking contaminated water!

Radiant plumber installing a water softener

Fortunately, there’s an effective and affordable way to counteract the harmful effects of this water: have a whole home water softener installed. This is a device that’s installed at the water main, where the water enters your home. It contains a special kind of filter that removes calcium, magnesium and harmful chemicals. Some water softeners also add a taste to the water (for example coconut)—but this isn’t necessary for you to taste and feel the difference right away. Even without the added flavor, the water tastes fresher and is noticeably cleaner. And within a week or less, you’ll start to notice that your skin feels softer and your hair and nails are healthier.

Before committing to a water softener, Radiant can conduct a thorough water quality test. Knowing exactly what’s in your drinking water will allow you to make an informed decision. Call us today at 833-656-4056 to schedule an in-home test of your water quality.
