Doesn’t The City Already Ensure Water Quality?

July 3, 2018

When you turn on the faucet in your home’s kitchen or bathroom, you want to know the water is safe to drink or use. No one wants their family to deal with water that is unsafe. The biggest chunk of that responsibility falls on the utility companies themselves. But there are some things you can do to ensure the highest water quality in your home.

If you are thinking, “doesn’t my municipality already treat and test my water?” The answer is yes, and you’ve come to the right place if you want to know more about the water quality in your home. Water is regularly tested by federal standards that look to test for microbial pathogens, radioactive elements, and organic and inorganic chemicals. But an important factor to keep in mind is that the regular tests are performed at the main source, which means that the water quality that comes to your home can be entirely different than what the municipality observed and tested. This is due to water changing over time in pipes as it makes its way to your house.

Another important note: Your city water supplier is not required to provide you with soft water. Here in San Antonio, we have some of the hardest water in the entire country.

By purchasing a Kinetico water softener or Kinetico drinking water system, you are investing not only in your water quality but guaranteeing your family will have the freshest, cleanest water possible – free of any substances like calcium that cause problems with your hair, skin, appliances, dishes and clothes.

Here at Kinetico San Antonio, we are committed to responsible water use and preservation to meet today’s global economic and environmental needs without compromising the opportunity for future generations to meet theirs. We have built our company and reputation on innovative, ecologically sound and efficient water treatment that improves water quality and makes life better for all.

We're very glad we got this installed. The technician, Alberto, was very polite and thoroughly explained what he was doing and what we would need to do.

Alberto kept me informed on his arrival time. He was professional and exceeded my expectations concerning the install of the water filtration system. I also need to put a plug in for Tracy for her patience and skills at making things happen behind the scenes...a true unsung hero. They both deserve a raise!


I just had my system installed by Alberto and Jay, and I wanted to say that they rocked. Got it all in and gave me some instructions to follow, all while being determined to detail and professional. Thanks, fellas.
