Let’s face it, the water never tastes the same in the new house as it did in the old one.
If you move from the city into the county or from the suburbs into the city, your water will taste differently.
Every area has different sources for their water. If you are in Portland, Oregon, your water comes from melted snow that runs down in mountain streams to the collection point. This water has never been underground and never stored in tanks.
If you are in a low flat area your water will have been pumped from deep wells up into tanks and then drained down to you. Depending on the minerals in the ground you will have different flavors. Sulfur, iron, calcium, fluoride and many other things can be in the water. Plus, while in the elevated water towers the higher temps make the water warmer giving it a whole other flavor. Some areas have their water stored in reservoirs and there are fish swimming in it.
People who move around the nation are familiar with the changes in water flavor. There are even a few places in the country where the water is actually naturally carbonated!
Regardless of area, reports of water contamination have raised consumer awareness and concern about the safety and quality of all water sources, both public and private.
And, while most people today are concerned about the quality of their drinking water, not everyone is sure whether they really need a water treatment system or how to choose one. Sure, bottled water is an option, but the cost and environmental impact suggest that new homeowners look for a more efficient filtration solution.
