You turn on the tap, pour some water, and enjoy a refreshing drink. But, while drinking that water, have you ever wondered about what might be in it? Have you ever noticed a strange smell? Do you have well water and you worry about agricultural run-off contaminating it?

An unfortunate fact today is that city water supplies, even though they go through a cleaning process, are not always the highest quality. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to ensure that your family is drinking clean water. Whether you use a private well or the city’s public water supply, let ServiceOne Air Conditioning help you improve your water in Longwood, Florida.

Call a Reliable Company for Water Quality Testing

If your water has a sulfur or iron smell, it’s particularly important to have it tested. Testing shows more than 2,000 chemicals in most city water supplies, including the ones that slip through their filtration system as well as the chemicals they add by hand. Fluoride is one example of a highly controversial element that is added to drinking water for the supposed health benefits, yet research shows that it’s actually harmful to your body.Drinking water

With reliable water quality testing, you will know exactly what’s in your water. You’ll then be able to make an informed and rational decision about the needs and health of your family.

Cleaning the Water

One of the most popular options for a water softener system is through a process called reverse osmosis. These systems pass pressurized water through a semipermeable membrane that removes most contaminants and chemicals. Initially used in the 1950s to purify sea water, it is now commonly used for home water filters. These systems are so effective that impurities as small as .001 microns (that’s tiny!) are removed from your water. The water is then passed through a carbon filter to ensure that it’s as clean as possible.
