If you’re asking yourself this question, it’s absolutely worth looking into. The thing is, water quality problems not only impact your quality of life and your plumbing system, but they can also affect your health.
Your water supply does go through a treatment process at your municipal water plant before it reaches your home. And most of these municipal water supply centers are good enough to remove the majority of harmful materials. But, the water has a long way to go from that plant to your faucets and fixtures. Therefore, you shouldn’t rely on this as a 100% effective water treatment source—there’s always a chance that some trace elements of contaminants (such as lead or even cyanide) can make its way into the water supply you are using to drink from and bathe with.
