Do you find yourself wondering if you need your water treated above and beyond what you’re currently using to filter and condition? Are you aware of the biggest indicators that a water treatment system is needed? In this week’s blog post, we’re going to explain what the top four signs of untreated water are so that you can evaluate your unique situation for yourself. While no two buildings will ever have the exact same water profile, there are common threads among them that we see all the time – common symptoms of a water treatment problem in need of fixing.


Sign #1: Foul or abnormal water taste. This is probably the easiest problem to identify. If your water smells or tastes anything but neutral and clean, your water system should probably be evaluated for treatment issues. There are many culprits that could be to blame for the taste, and you’ll likely need a water professional to assist with determining the root cause.


Sign #2: “Hard” water. Water is ‘hard’ when it isn’t molecularly suitable for domestic use. That’s a fancy way of saying that hard water is difficult to clean and cook with. It can also leave residues like limescale in bathrooms and kitchen areas. Dealing with hard water involves adding a water softener to your water system – a task that the LeverEdge can assist with.


Sign #3: Discoloration. Discolored water can actually smell and taste perfectly normal. However, do not be deceived by taste or smell alone. Discolored water is almost never normal, and it is not advisable to use discolored water for any reason until a water professional can diagnose the issue.


Sign #4: Appliance inefficiencies. You may not think much about how your washing machine, dishwasher and other plumbed appliances use water. Every time they are used, these machines have to process water through complicated machinery, and untreated water can result in gummed-up internal parts, wasted power, and premature breakdown. Treatment of your water can help to alleviate these issues and keep your appliances running smoothly and last longer.
