Water Quality Isn’t Just a Rural Concern

Water Treatment Plant

It’s very common for city dwellers to assume their drinking water is perfectly clean. The unfortunate truth is, urban water treatment plants can’t catch everything. Many contaminants and bacteria can slip through the cracks, and some can even be picked up along the way as water travels through your pipes. As they always say, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Installing a water treatment system within your home can help to catch and eliminate many of these impurities, while at the same time delivering water that tastes fresh and pure!


Harmful Contaminants in urban tap water

It’s not just rural areas that suffer from contaminated water that requires treatment. Even though most urban homes don’t use well water, tap water can deliver certain impurities as well. Government-mandated urban water treatment facilities throughout North America work extremely hard to deliver safe and clean drinking water to residents, but unfortunately not all of the impurities are caught and treated.

Some of these impurities can include, but are not limited to:

  • Chlorine
  • Lead
  • Detergents
  • Nitrates
  • Arsenic
  • Pesticides
  • Bacteria
  • Fluoride
  • Rust
  • E.coli
  • Salmonella

Your body is made up of mostly water. Humans need it to survive. The water delivered through our pipes can affect us when we drink, breathe, and touch it. By removing these impurities, we can help improve the safety of ourselves and our loved ones too. 

how to remove bacteria and contaminants from water 

Take your health and safety into your own hands. Nobody can do a better job of ensuring the water quality for you and your loved ones than yourself, and the experts at Water Depot of course. Installing a high-quality water treatment system within your home can help to catch and eliminate many of these impurities before they hit your drinking glass.

We offer several different systems that help treat your water in their own unique way. These systems include:

Installing and maintaining one of these helpful systems within your home can help eliminate many of the impurities and bacteria that come through your tap. A reverse osmosis system will remove contaminants through a series of high-grade filters, while an ultraviolet system will use ultraviolet technology and electromagnetic radiation to eliminate impurities.

On the other hand, an iron removal system will utilize a specific media in combination with an ozone generator to remove impurities such as sulphur and iron from the water. These systems provide homeowners with a chemical-free solution to clean and safe tap water.
