Tips From The Water Experts

When it comes to water quality, our team of highly skilled and trained drain experts have years of experience and can provide you with all of the information that you need to ensure your homes water is safe and to ensure your family and your equipment stays protected. Below you will find helpful information, but feel free to call our team any time with any questions or concerns that you may have!

What Is Lurking In Your Water?

You’ve doubtlessly seen the news stories about contaminants in drinking water. The lead levels in Flint, Michigan for instance. But you might not realize that these impurities can strike anytime, anywhere—even in Jackson. While the health risks involved with heavy metals and bacteria only present themselves in cases of long exposure, it’s safe to say you don’t want to be drinking heavy metals or E. coli.
Below are a few things that a water filtration or purification system can keep at bay:
  • Aluminum
  • Arsenic
  • Bacteria
  • Chromium
  • Copper
  • Fluoride
  • Lead
  • Lithium
  • Viruses
  • Beryllium
  • Cadmium
  • Manganese
  • Thalium
  • Zinc
  • Pesticides
  • Herbicides
  • Radon

The symptoms of exposure to some of these contaminants vary and include damage to the brain, liver, circulatory system, and kidney damage.

Not all water problems are as easy to spot as iron or acidity issues. They can often be subtle and insidious, something you get used to after long-term exposure. For these issues, water testing is often the only way to spot a problem. To help determine if you have a need for our water filtration and purification services, keep an eye out for:
  • Bathtub and sink staining
  • Sediment buildup on faucets and pipes
  • Dingy whites
  • Spots on glassware
  • The smell of chlorine
  • Tangled, coarse hair
  • Dry skin
  • Cloudy tap water
  • Discolored or brown water
  • A noticeable smell or taste difference

Water Filtration/Purification Solutions

Solution 1: Whole House Water Filtration
Though some companies might recommend a drinking water filtration system, we don’t think that’s enough. You don’t just drink water. You also bathe and cook with it. That’s why we recommend installing a whole-house water filtration system in the Jackson and Albion area.

It should be noted, however, that whole-home filters don’t eliminate scale buildup or rust issues. For those, you’ll need a water softener. Water filtration mediums vary and include coconut shells, carbon, and sand.
The benefits of whole house water filters include:
  • A longer life for your faucets, pipes, and fixtures
  • Healthier and less-wrinkled skin
  • Purified water when and where you want it
  • Improved food and beverage flavor
  • Eliminates parasites like giardia
  • Less money wasted on bottled water
  • Reduction in chlorine and carbon-based compounds

Solution 2: Water Purification (Reverse Osmosis)
A bit more complicated than a water filter, reverse osmosis systems are a multi-process device intended for water purification. These systems direct water through an initial filter to remove chlorine and particulate matter. Then, it flows through a semi-permeable membrane to remove any solid particulates. These waste products are then flushed down a drain while the clean water continues into a filter tank. Lastly, an activated carbon filter takes care of any odor or smell issues.

The main drawback of reverse osmosis units is their price. But they can also be easily ported from one home to another. This ensures you get the most out of your plumbing investment.

The advantages of water purification systems include:

  • Gives you constant access to purified water
  • Eliminates a wider variety of solids than simple filters
  • Improves the flavor of beverages and food
  • Great for aquariums and those with allergies
  • Provides almost total chlorine elimination
  • Helps your pipes, faucets, and fixtures last longer

Home Maintenance Plans To Keep Your Plumbing Equipment Running Strong

Frequently Asked Questions

While chemical drain cleaners are acceptable in certain situations, we discourage using them frequently or as a first solution. These chemicals are extremely toxic and can eat away at pipes if overused. Ask us about safer alternatives to deter and clear clogs.
Our plumbers have access to tools and materials that can clear up any clog without damaging your pipes. And, if your home has recurring clogs, only a real Jackson plumber can get rid of them for good!

A lot of plumbing problems are easy to spot, but leaks have a tendency to go unnoticed. This is because they often start small and can go unnoticed for months or years. They can also hide under floors, above ceilings, and behind walls, making them more challenging to find. Here are a few signs you may have a leak:

  • Rapidly climbing water bills
  • Your water meter ticks even when you aren’t using water
  • A musty smell or signs of mold become visible
  • Discoloration and dampness occurs near tubs and toilets

If you see any of these signs, don’t panic. Call Aspen Plumbing at (517) 750-9913 and schedule an appointment instead!

If your shower pressure is low when other fixtures are running, you may have an insufficient plumbing system. If the problem persists when only the shower is running, there may be a leaking pipe somewhere.
 

There are a number of simple ways to downsize your water bill. These include:

  • Taking shorter showers
  • Turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth
  • Only running the washing machine or dryer when you have a full load
  • Installing low-flow showerheads and toilets
  • Adding a brick to your toilet tank to reduce the amount of water used per flush

If you try all these things and your water bill keeps climbing, you may have a leak in your home. Call (517) 750-9913, so one of our plumbers can investigate.

The average water heater in Jackson lasts between 8 and 12 years. Note that this applies to gas water heaters; electric ones can last a little longer. However, the signs that a new water heater is needed don’t relate to fuel source. These include:

  • Dark or rusty water
  • No hot water
  • Flooding and dampness around your water heater

In the Jackson area, it’s not uncommon for temperatures to dip below 32°F. When that happens, pipes can freeze and burst. Fixing frozen pipes is one of the most expensive plumbing repairs you can have. Fortunately, there are steps homeowners can take to prevent this catastrophe. These include:

  • Opening doors and cabinets on cold days
  • Insulating pipes inside and outside your home
  • Keeping a faucet dripping
  • Quickly patching any cracks
  • Never set your thermostat lower than 55°F
