What are the 3 Signs Your House
Needs an Outdoor Water Filter?
When Your Pipe Water Smells Bad
We’re so accustomed to water being odourless, but it can actually have a smell….and most of the time, if you can smell it, it’s not exactly a good sign. That’s because of the chlorine found in the pipe water, since chlorine is technically still used to clean water. Even if it’s not necessarily in amounts that could be harmful, it can be unappetising as a beverage.
Your Pipe Seems Corroded
You can tell that a pipe is corroded when it smells like sulfur, or rotten eggs. This is due to the presence of hydrogen sulfur, a colourless gas that corrodes and blackens metal pipes, eventually causing leaks. An unpleasant smell, unhealthy water, and possible maintenance bills to pay…all easily fixed with a good outdoor water filter. Bear in mind though, that while the smell is awful, it isn’t typically dangerous but you can never be too safe, right?
Brown or Yellowish Pipe Water Found
Much as water should usually be odourless, it should also generally be colourless. The brown or yellowish hues are commonly caused by dirt and sediments suspended in water, such as sand, scale, clay, and rust. Simply put, unwanted contaminants that should NOT be found in your water. This is usually found in water drawn from ponds, rivers and lakes. Thus, it is also always important to get to know where your water is drawn from.
