Municipal Water

Why do I need a water filter? Isn’t city water safe?

According to EPA regulations, all city water must be treated for safety – but what passes basic health guidelines may not be clean and safe enough for you and your family.

Municipal water isn’t what it used to be. America’s cities are growing fast and treatment facilities can’t keep up. An extra layer of protection in your home can make a real impact on the quality of the water you use to drink, wash your food, bathe, clean your home and more.

Contaminants common to city water

Many homeowners are unaware that even treated water can become contaminated between the processing plant and your home. Common contaminants found in your area by our certified water experts include:

  • Bacteria or viruses

  • Lead and mercury
  • Chlorine and chloramines
  • Fluoride
  • Suspended Solids

In fact, many water treatment facilities add chlorine to the water supply to kill more dangerous pathogens such as E. coli, Hepatitis A and giardia. While safe to drink, chlorine and its effects alter the taste and appearance of your water.
