If you get your water supply from the city in which you live, as most people do, then you are likely benefiting from a municipal water treatment process. Before the water is piped into your home, the city puts it through an extensive treatment process to remove a lot of the more toxic materials that could harm you. Unfortunately, this process is not 100% effective. There are plenty of times when the quality of the water coming out of your taps is not as high as it could be, or should be. Look for these following symptoms that you might want to take extra steps to ensure the quality of your water.


There are all kinds of things that can affect the color of your water. Occasional brown or red spurts when you first turn on your tap, for example, could mean that you have a section of plumbing that is rusting. Blue and green coloration is also possible, due to the presence of certain elements in the water. Even if some of these conditions are innocuous, though, it is not something you should just ignore. If your water is consistently discolored, call a professional and ask them to evaluate the quality of your water.

Odd Tastes

Tap water is usually not going to taste good, but there’s a difference between regular tap water and tap water that tastes a bit “off.” If your water tastes metallic, or has some other taste to it that really stands out, you should have it tested to make sure it doesn’t have something seriously wrong with it.
