Are There Sediments In Your Drinking Water?

How do you know if your tap water is truly safe to drink? You can actually tell a lot about the health of your water by its look and smell. One risk with tap water is that it could include unhealthy sediments. If you notice that tap water looks cloudy or even a little dirty when it comes out of the faucet, this is an indication that it may be contaminated with clay, silt, or other natural sediments.

Sediments can get into water from normal water runoff. Water containing sediments can be unpleasant and even unhealthy to drink and can stain clothes and dishes. If you think that you might have sediments in your tap water, fill up a clean, clear glass and hold it up near a window during the day. The natural sunlight will help you determine if the water is cloudy.

If so, it might be time to consider installing a full-home water filtration system. If you live in California, give Superior Water a call, and we can help you decide which WATERBOY™ whole house system is right for you.
