This is important because the less water there is in your pipes, the less likely your backflow valves are to be overwhelmed causing your clean home water to be mixed with sewage.
Plumbers will install many different types of filters to help prevent the contamination of your water by toxins and pathogens including gravity filters, reverse osmosis filters and carbon slabs that filter out the tiniest of particles. UV filters that use light to kill pathogens that are invisible to the eye.
A plumber can also help you seek out and identify the presence of black mold in your home, the presence of which can make people very ill. Black mold thrives in environments that are toxic or wet. Unfortunately, this toxic mold requires that you leave the premises immediately as it is toxic enough to cause death.
