Municipal Water Solutions
The EPA sets national standards for drinking water to protect against health effects that your municipality must adhere to. The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), enacted by Congress in 1974, is the main federal law ensuring the quality and safety of America’s drinking water. It requires every municipality to provide safe drinking water to its residents. Although the water your town or municipality provides is safe, it doesn’t mean that it can’t be improved.
Many Connecticut residents with city water complain about chlorine, bad taste or odor that negatively affects the overall quality. Additionally, it’s not uncommon to find a high mineral content or hardness level in the water supplied that creates issues with limescale build-up. In older homes, there may be contamination issues related to older piping systems. The service line connecting the water main to your house could be made from lead, or the solder in your plumbing system could have lead in it increasing any level reported by the municipality. A high-quality system from SolvIt Water can provide you with cleaner, fresher and safer water for your whole-house or at your kitchen sink.
