Maintenance is key to keeping your water treatment system at your Alberta 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 Springbank, AB, area home, your water treatment system benefits from preventative maintenance. A little TLC extends service life and helps you avoid major repairs.
Our qualified professionals at Alpha Plumbing can recommend a maintenance plan for your system that will include necessary filter changes, parts inspection, and tune-up.
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, colour, 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, Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) 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.
The system also uses 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.
How to Improve Your Drinking Water
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.
Consider your water softener. While maintaining your system, look for worn parts and leaks. Clean the brine and resin tanks occasionally, and cheque valves, the system motor, and the regeneration timer. A water softener can last 15 to 20 years with regular maintenance.
If you install an ultraviolet (UV) disinfecting light in your home, cheque wiring and connections, housing, and the lamp periodically.
Our pros at Alpha Plumbing recommend whole-home UV water treatment system that includes an audible reminder when the lamp needs replacement and displays warning lights when system components need maintenance.
Be sure to ask about our flexible monthly payments customized to your needs and budget.
