Be H2O Aware with Help from the General

Posted on January 16, 2018

You buy organic fruits and vegetables. You’ve made the switch to grass fed beef. You only use cage-free eggs. It all costs a lot of money, but you do it because you feel it makes your family healthier and safer. But what are you doing about the water in your house that you use for drinking, cooking, showering, and laundry?

General Air Conditioning and Plumbing knows public water supplies in the U.S. are generally safe, but there are dangers we all need to be aware of. The Sacramento Bee newspaper recently reported public drinking water systems violated federal and California regulations more than 4,700 times 2016. Reports like this are a good reason to call the General and talk with our experts about the options you have to make your water even safer.

We carry a full line of water filtration and treatment options by H2O Harmony Elite. The filters not only remove contaminants but make your water taste and smell better. No more smelling chlorine in the water when getting a drink or taking a shower. The General can install whole-house water filtration systems or filters installed at individual fixtures.

The best way to start is to call in one of our licensed plumbers in Palm Springs for a plumbing inspection, it will include a free hard water test. Our water supplies in the Coachella Valley often have the high mineral content that makes water hard. The result is hard water stains and damaging deposits in pipes, faucets, and showerheads. The General can install a water softening system to give you the luxury of soft water. Your skin and hair will feel softer and smell fresher, as will your laundry. Our plumbers can also install a dual system. It will take care of water filtration and soften the water at the same time.

The General isn’t here to scare you, but when you see the news stories that pop up every so often like the lead contamination in Flint, Michigan or the chromium-6 contamination detailed in the movie Erin Brockovich, there are reasons to be proactive about protecting your home’s water supply.

If you are going to spend extra money to buy the healthiest food, isn’t it possible you are wasting that money if you’re not doing all you can to protect your family’s water supply? There’s a reason why water is called the lifeblood. Think of all the ways you use it and are exposed to any contaminants virtually every day of the year.

It doesn’t matter if your motivation is safety, taste, or comfort, there is no reason you need to put up with water problems. Call General Air Conditioning & Plumbing today to find out how our troops can improve your residential water quality.
