You’re probably familiar with some of the visible impacts of hard water. Stains in the toilet, soap scum on the tub. But you can definitely taste hard water, too! The minerals that gather in the water as it makes its way to your home have a flavor as well… and it isn’t good! Most people who live in areas that are impacted by hard water only drink bottled water. But this is expensive and inconvenient. In this post, we’ll discuss a few ways you can make your water taste better.
SOLUTIONS FOR BETTER TASTING WATER
- Buy a filter: A simple filter can be a short-term solution to poor-tasting water. Just fill up the pitcher at the tap, and let it do its thing. This is a very cost-effective solution. The only real cost is purchasing the filter. Depending on the quality, some may feel the actual taste is only minimally improved. After a while, the filter itself will clog (with the minerals that make it taste bad in the first place) and have to be replaced. So, this a very cost-effective solution, but not a permanent one.
- Reverse Osmosis: The Bosworth Company can install a reverse osmosis filtration system straight to your water source. Since it works with the tank, it will improve the quality of water coming out of every faucet. R.O. water is cleaner and better tasting than traditional filters, due to an enhanced filtering process. R.O. is considered a more complete, permanent solution.
- Water softener: A water softener will also make your water taste better. It’s a similar process as reverse osmosis, but the scientific process is slightly different. Water softeners are generally considered an excellent complement to reverse osmosis systems.
