Water treatment maintenance is key to keeping your system at your home in top shape.
When it operates at peak performance, your water treatment system reduces contaminants that might jeopardize your health or harm your water heater and other appliances.
It improves water taste, appearance, and odor, and gives you peace of mind whenever you wash your hands, sip some water, step into the shower, or launder your clothes.
Maintain Your Water Quality
Like any other appliance in your home, your system benefits from preventative water treatment maintenance. A little TLC extends service life and helps you avoid major repairs.
Filters are not the only parts that need attention. If a valve, tank, connector, or another part fails, other system components may not function properly.
Our qualified professionals at Reliant Heating & Cooling can recommend a maintenance plan for your system.
Filters for Water Treatment Systems
You may wonder why a drinking water system requires maintenance. After all, the essential component in most water treatment systems is the filter. What could be complicated about a filter?
Like the air filter in your furnace or car, water treatment filters must be replaced or cleaned regularly. How often they need replacement depends on the system, how much water you use, and what is in your water.
Filters overdue for cleaning or replacement may no longer adequately block contaminants. You may not realize the filter has worn out unless water clarity, color, smell, or taste changes. In some cases, such as lead filtration, you cannot see, taste, or smell lead in drinking water.
If your lead filtration filter fails, you risk significant health consequences drinking the water in your home.
For example, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that drinking water can account for a person's total exposure to lead. Children with low levels of lead in their blood can experience behavior problems, lower IQ, hearing problems, and anemia. Adults can suffer from increased blood pressure, decreased kidney function, and reproductive issues.
Some systems use an LED light that glows green when the filter is working, yellow to indicate 10 percent of filter life remains, and red for filter replacement is due.
