Repiping for Improved Water Quality: Removing Contaminants

Repiping for Improved Water Quality: Removing Contaminants

Are you experiencing discolored water or a bad taste in your mouth after drinking from your tap? These are common signs of contaminants in your water. While water treatment systems can help, they are not always effective in removing all pollutants. Repiping your home can be a more permanent solution to removing contaminants from your water and improving its quality.

Here are some ways that repiping can help remove contaminants from your water:

Replace Old and Corroded Pipes

Old and corroded pipes can leach contaminants into your water supply. These contaminants can include lead, copper, and other heavy metals. Repiping your home with new pipes made of materials like copper or PEX can eliminate the risk of these contaminants leaching into your water.

Install Filtration Systems

When repiping your home, you can also install filtration systems to remove additional contaminants. These systems can include activated carbon filters, reverse osmosis systems, and UV filters. These filters can remove a wide range of contaminants, including chlorine, pesticides, and bacteria.

Eliminate Cross-Contamination

Cross-contamination can occur when pipes carrying different types of water (i.e., hot and cold) are touching each other. This can cause hot water to pick up contaminants from cold water and vice versa. Repiping your home can eliminate this risk by separating the pipes carrying hot and cold water.

Prevent Pipe Leaks and Breaks

Leaking pipes can allow contaminants to enter your water supply. Repiping your home can prevent leaks and breaks from occurring, ensuring that your water remains free from contaminants.

Improve Water Flow

Low water flow can cause contaminants to accumulate in your pipes. Repiping your home can improve water flow, reducing the risk of contaminants building up in your pipes and leaching into your water.
