Is this an emergency?

Providing Service in these CT Communities:

blogAs you strive to achieve and maintain optimum levels of good health, you need to maintain a body pH level of 7.364, or as close to that as possible. Anything lower, and you’ll start to retain too much acid which can lead to thinner bones, weaker muscle mass, and other problems.

Conversely, higher-than-normal body pH levels can cause a build-up of alkaline which impairs our ability to to become hydrated. It can also lead to muscle cramping, blurry vision, and irregular heart rhythm.

As such, your home water supply needs to maintain a healthy balance between acidity and alkalinity.

If you have city water, chances are your water quality is right where it needs to be. Well water, on the other hand, can be overly acidic. That’s the result of dissolved carbon dioxide from rain water entering your well water supply.

Acidic water not only impacts taste and quality, it can do a number on your plumbing fixtures. In fact, acidic water can cause pipes, plumbing fixtures, heating elements, and hot water heaters to corrode prematurely.

How do you know if your home’ water is acidic? Here are five signs to look for:

  1. Metallic taste to water
  2. Low water pressure or slow flow
  3. Red stains on sinks and bathtubs if you have copper or brass plumbing fixtures
  4. Blue stains on sinks or bathtubs if you have steel fixtures
  5. Premature deterioration of pipes

If you’re seeing or experiencing any of these same symptoms at home, contact CT Mechanical Solutions, one of Connecticut’s leading water quality service providers. We’ll take a sample of your water to have it tested. Then we’ll recommend exactly the right solution for your home, family, and budget. It really is just that simple – when, in fact, you choose CT Mechanical Solutions as your water quality service provider.
