You rely on water for cooking, gardening, and a host of many other activities, but you, your family, and your pets also depend on water to drink. Not everybody likes how water tastes, so they find ways to make it taste better by adding flavors or drinking sparkling water. Below are a few ways to enhance the quality of water, which is guaranteed to make it taste better in your Florida home. For the best results, try a RainSoft water treatment system in Pompano Beach.
Cold Water for Drinking
For drinking purposes, cold water is better than hot water, especially if you have lead pipes. Hot water dissolves any contaminants built up in your water heater and releases them into your water. These contaminants include bacteria, sediment, and metals such as lead, which is why our customers ask us to perform a water test to ensure the quality and safety of their drinking water or ask for a water filtration system in Hollywood.
If you’re looking for RainSoft in Pompano Beach for filtration, ask us about a complimentary in-home water test. One of our trained water treatment professionals will assess and analyze your home’s water and determine your needs. If you need a water filtration system in Hollywood, our experienced technicians can help you with your needs.
Drain Your Water Heater
Bacteria, sediment, and other contaminants build up in your water heater tank and affect not only your water pressure but your water quality. This is why we recommend that you drain your water heater on an annual basis. To do this, you must:
- Turn off your water heater (make sure your pilot light or burner is out and that any heating coils are off.)
- Close the supply valve to the cold water
- Connect a hose to the drain valve and place the other end of the hose where water can flow freely
- Open a hot water faucet and then open the drain valve
- Once drained, close the hot water faucet, open the cold water supply valve slowly, and wait five minutes before removing the hose.
- Open the hot water faucet that was previously used and close it once the water begins flowing
- Follow your water heater user manual to turn on the water heater and set the temperature at 140°F.
Flush the Pipes
When you’re using cold tap water for drinking or cooking purposes, let the water run for a minute. This is because water quality can decline when it sits in your pipes for long periods. If you’re worried about wasting water, other activities work just as well, including showering, flushing the toilet, running the dishwasher, and doing laundry.
