new home and water quality

If you’re building a new home, congratulations! This is a very exciting endeavor filled with important decisions, personalized details, and designs for the future of your family’s safe place.

From planning the layout to selecting those perfect design elements, there are plenty of decisions to make. Now is the perfect time to also consider the quality of your drinking water as you begin to select some of the infrastructure and technical systems details.

As you find some of these complex decisions coming up, we are happy to help you choose a drinking water system that meets the needs and demands of your family and new home.

New Home Water Quality Considerations

We can help test your water to see just what you may need. Do you want to protect your home from unwanted drinking water contaminants? Does this area have hard water so you’re looking to install a home water softener or utilize soft water delivery service?

When it comes to your water quality, these types of decisions are where you need to start, and we can help you from there. Your home is your investment and adding a water treatment system can help add equity and make your new home even more enjoyable.

Common Water Issues You May Face In Your New Home

Why is it important to consider your water quality now? Installing a home water treatment system can help you prevent water problems now and down the road. Here are some common water issues many homeowners face:

  • Hard water
  • Arsenic, nitrates or other harmful contaminants
  • Iron stains
  • Acidic water
  • Bacteria or viruses
  • Pesticides 

What Type of Water Source Do You Have?

Another important consideration when it comes to water quality is finding out where your drinking water will come from. Will you have municipal water or a private well? With pros and cons to both, how you manage the quality of your water (and how you test and treat it) will become a decision only you can make.

With private well water, there is always the possibility of contamination. It is important to test your water regularly. If needed, treat it with an effective and efficient drinking water filter to ensure that your tap water is free of bacteria, chemicals or other environmental contaminants.

Municipal water is also at-risk for contamination at times, so a reverse osmosis system can be the ultimate line of defense for anything a water treatment company may miss.

Your area’s general water quality should also be considered. Is it hard or soft? Are there known contaminants in the annual water quality report? Are you near farms or rural areas where animal waste or pesticides are used?
