Water is an essential element that is all around and even within us. We can survive weeks without food but will suffer fatally if we go without water for even several days. Water quality in your home’s plumbing system is important for a couple of reasons. For one, it affects your health. Bad quality water may contain dangerous microbes, bacteria, and pathogens. The quality of the water is also important for the condition of your plumbing system. Heavy metals, minerals, and chemicals can damage your plumbing system and force you to get costly repairs or replacements.

Health Risks of Poor-Quality Water
Poor-quality water can contain a myriad of bacteria, parasites, viruses, and pathogens. Some of the common health problems associated with poor-quality water include:
Risks to Your Plumbing System
Plumbing systems are sensitive and poor-quality water is one of the threats. Hard water is high in dissolved minerals that can form mineral buildups in your pipes. Similarly, water with pH over 7 may leave mineral deposits in the drains. These can cause blockages that may eventually lead to leaking and other damage to your pipes.
