Is Water Treatment Really Necessary?

Ask the Plumber!

Brockmire Plumbing Services Inc., d.b.a. BPS Plumbing & Drains, has been bringing expertise in plumbing and water treatment to San Diego County for more than 20 years.

Did you know that the water in most homes has more chlorine than a pool? In addition, many water districts use a combination of chlorine and ammonia to disinfect the water. This combination has been known to be more aggressive and can cause pinhole leaks in copper pipes. Your water is safer, but your home is at risk of potential water damage because of these chemicals.

Did you know that hard water causes scale build-up, and scale build-up causes problems that result in wasted dollars? The estimated energy cost for running a 40-gallon electric hot water heater is $450 a year. A scale build-up of just 3/8 of an inch gobbles up 55 percent more energy. That’s an additional $247 or more each year to produce the same amount of hot water! A soft water system may be right for you.


Bottled water is expensive, environmentally unfriendly, inconvenient, and doesn’t address the many other household uses for water such as bathing, cooking, and brushing your teeth. Call BPS Plumbing & Drains today to discover how we can solve your water problems.
