Does Your Home Have Hard Water?
Hard water comes from high levels of calcium, magnesium and other minerals that cause odors, taste, and buildup in your pipes.
In Ottawa, installing a Viqua filtration system could help with the inconveniences and issues with hard water that many Ottawa residents (both on residential and well water) struggle with.
Issues such as:
- Bad odors & tastes (such as salt, chlorine, or rotten eggs)
- Iron or black staining, tarnishing
- Cloudy water, silt, sediment, or metal particles
- Leaky faucet or toilet (due to chlorine decaying rubber seals)
- Pinhole leaks in pipes (due to corrosive chloramines)
- Low flow rate on taps and showerheads
- Shortened life span of water heaters
- Decreased effectiveness of soap and detergent
- Dull hair and dry, flaky skin
UV filtration systems disinfect the water with ultraviolet light- meaning absolutely nothing is added to the water. The UV light sterilizes the water by scrambling the DNA of any organisms in the water (such as bacteria and viruses like E.Coli) to prevent them from reproducing and making you sick.
These systems are incredibly effective, killing up to 99.9% of microorganisms. All integrated Viqua systems also include a pre-filter carbon cartridges for extra effectiveness.
