5 Plumbing Tips that Help Improve Water Quality

Improving water quality at home may not be one of the things you actively learn about. However, the quality of the water you use can directly affect not only your health but also your loved ones’. It becomes necessary to ensure the water quality in your home is the best. Don’t know where to start? Here are plumbing tips that help improve water quality:

1. Get your water tested.

Proper water treatment is only possible after accurate water testing. You may test your water at home for contaminants, iron, etc. The water quality testing results will determine the appropriate water treatment solutions if there are any. To get started, CONTACT US.

2. Install a water filtration system.

Water filters remove unwanted particles, improving the purity and taste of water in your home. With regular cleaning and maintenance, a good filtration system should serve you for a long time.


There are factors to be considered to figure out the solution that works best for your home, such as the quality of water, your space and budget, and the quantity of water that needs to be filtered daily. Need help? CONTACT US.

3. Replace old faucets.

Although they’re built to be durable, the faucets in your kitchen and bathroom will age, and eventually rust. They’d also develop mineral deposits, reducing the efficiency of pipes and water heaters in the long run. The buildup around the openings in the shower head may also cause clogs and even reduce the water pressure.


So if your fixtures are getting older, it makes sense to replace them promptly.

4. Remove, clean, and replace aerators as needed.

Aerators are screens at the end of a faucet, which may affect the water pressure, shape the stream of water, catch small debris, and keep water from splashing as it hits your hand. Aerators also help keep lead and other potentially harmful particles from getting into the water.


We recommend cleaning the aerators at least once every six months to get rid of the excess debris trapped in them. Not happy with the pressure of the water that’s coming out of the faucet? Removing and cleaning the aerators may improve water flow.

5. Flush your water line

Flushing your water line simply means turning on the cold water faucet, then letting the water run for 2-3 minutes before using it.


Flushing helps maintain quality, especially after you’ve been away from home. Water that’s been sitting stagnant in pipes may not be safe for cooking or drinking, because it can possibly contain copper, lead, and other harmful sediments.
