Water Softeners - Bandera, TX
Water Filtration Systems – Should I use One?
Call Frontier Plumbing for water softeners in Bandera TX, Lakehills TX & Pipe Creek TX. Remember when you could drink a glass of water straight out of the faucet and not worry about it being safe to drink? Nowadays, report after report mentions increasing levels of pollutants, heavy metals, pesticides, cysts/spores/cryptosporidium and other contaminants in drinking water in communities throughout the country. In fact, a 2009 study undertaken by the Environmental Working Group found 315 pollutants in drinking water in the United States.
In areas where farming or mines exist, pesticides and heavy metals can leak into water tables and find their way into drinking water. Even if your county tests water regularly and provides clean water ready to drink, if you have older lead pipes in your home, your water may not be as pure or safe as you think.
Do I need a Water Filtration System?
If you have a private well in the Bandera TX, Lakehills TX & Pipe Creek TX area or your water consistently smells or tastes funny, it might be in your best interest to have your water tested. This is easy enough and can cost as little as $20. To test your water to see what’s in it, simply call the EPA’s Safe Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. The EPA can provide you with all the information you need to test your water or we will be happy to come out and perform a water test for you.

Deciding what kind of Water Filter Works best for You
There are a number of options regarding filtered water: faucet mounted filters; pitcher filters; under the sink filters; and whole house filters. If you are primarily interested in removing chlorine, odors, cryptosporidium, and sediment, a carbon-based filter will likely do the job.
