Flow Pros Plumbing Provides Water Treatment and More

Water is one of the most essential natural resources on the planet. Most everyone knows how vital hydration is to our bodies. It is a basic necessity, only coming in second to air. But not everyone can enjoy clean water. In fact, according to the experts at Web MD“1.1 million people fall ill each year due to consumption of untreated water.” That is precisely why at Flow Pros Plumbing, we feel water treatment is essential for all.

Tap water can contain harmful bacteria and viruses. Not to mention, water that is not treated may have metals like mercury, chlorine, fluorine, and lead floating around in the water. These elements can be hazardous and can make you sick.

When water treatment systems are installed in your home, the water is also stripped of waterborne pathogens and diseases. Sounds like a plan, right? Well, at Flow Pros Plumbing, we sure think so. So let’s dive into a bit more about why it is so critical to your health and wellbeing.

The Importance of Water Treatment and the Earth

Did you realize that over 71% of the Earth’s surface is covered in water? Of that water, 97% is saltwater and unsafe for drinking. That leaves only three percent of the water that is fresh and safe to drink. And some of that water is stored in icebergs and polar ice caps. Very little is actually underground and available for use.

Here is the issue. Surface water is contaminated each day by population and development. Then harmful chemicals and substances are introduced to the water system, creating the need for water treatment.

Water Treatment Plants process the water we drink by passing it through several specific processes. This treatment removes solids and chemicals to be reintroduced into the lakes and streams.

Wastewater Treatment Plants treat and remove impurities from the wastewater created each day.

Distillation is the way we treat saltwater to make it safe to drink.

Home Water Treatment Systems allow homeowners to ensure the water their families drink is actually safe and clean.

The Benefits of Water Treatment

To ensure your water is perfectly safe and clean for your consumption, water treatment systems can be added to your home. And the benefits of water treatment are undeniable.

So why not invest in your family’s health and wellbeing with a water treatment plan? The benefits outweigh the cost, and the process is easy for a plumber to install in your home.

Water Treatment at Home

Do you know what is in the water coming out of your tap at home? Probably not. We assume it is safe to drink, but water treatment systems are available for homeowners and are readily installed if you want to be sure. Flow Pros Plumbing installs and maintains three main categories of water treatment systems each day.

  1. Water Softeners
  2. Reverse Osmosis
  3. UV Lights

Water Softeners

Home water softeners remove the minerals like calcium and magnesium found in tap water that causes dingy clothes, itchy skin, and more.

Reverse Osmosis

An RO system removes the contaminants from your water with filters. They are installed in your home fixtures and are a great way to keep your family’s drinking water safe.

UV Lights

Using UV lights to purify water is another option, and it is cost-effective too. The UV rays eliminate biological contaminants and leave the water completely safe. And it does not change the taste, pH, or smell of the water.

All these treatment systems and more are available for installation with your local plumbing company.

Signs You Need a Water Treatment

Water testing is the best way to know if you need a water treatment system installed in your home. But there are some more obvious signs you may see that will encourage you to get the testing sooner than later. Here is what we see in homes all over Pinellas and Hillsborough County.

If you have any of these issues, the pros may outweigh the cons, making the decision easy.
