Do you have murky or cloudy water? If so, this could be an indicator of turbidity or water clarity problems in your home.

Water clarity is a physical characteristic defined by how clear or transparent water is. Although cloudiness is not itself a health concern, it could indicate problems with the water supply that may lead to health risks. Water clarity is directly related to turbidity, as turbidity is a measure of water clarity.

Turbidity is a measure of the degree to which the water loses its transparency due to the presence of suspended particulates. The more total suspended solids (TSS) in the water, the murkier it seems and the higher the turbidity. Turbidity is considered as a good measure of the quality of water.

Turbidity and TSS are the most visible indicators of water quality. These suspended particles can come from soil erosion, runoff, discharges, stirred bottom sediments or algal blooms (See Water Problems – Sediment). While it is possible for some streams to have naturally high levels of suspended solids, clear water is usually considered an indicator of healthy water. A sudden increase in turbidity in a previously clear body of water is a cause for concern. Excessive suspended sediment can impair water quality for aquatic and human life, impede navigation and increase flooding risks.

Contaminants such as heavy metals, toxic organic compounds and pesticides can become attached to suspended particles, giving them a free ride through the water distribution system. Bacteria, viruses and parasites can also attach themselves to suspended particles in water.

For drinking water, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has set a secondary drinking water standard for turbidity of 5 nephelometric turbidity units (NTUs).

Secondary drinking water standards are for factors that may cause cosmetic or aesthetic effects rather than health concerns. However, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that turbidity should ideally be below 1 NTU.

City/Municipal water providers monitor their Turbidity.  Well water and Rainwater users must monitor themselves.  We recommend testing and treating as needed.  Please review Water Problems – Sediment as the treatment is the same.

Seeking Crystal-Clear Water?

Discover the Perfect Trio: Water Filter, UV System, and Water Softener

If you desire crystal-clear water throughout your home, you can achieve it with the perfect trio of a water filter, UV system, and water softener. This powerful combination ensures exceptional water clarity and quality.

A water filter acts as the first line of defense against impurities that can affect water clarity. It utilizes advanced filtration technologies to remove sediment, particles, and contaminants, providing cleaner and clearer water for everyday use.

Complementing the water filter, a UV system offers an additional layer of purification. It utilizes ultraviolet light technology to effectively neutralize bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms that can cause water cloudiness. This ensures that your water is not only visually clear but also free from harmful pathogens.

To complete the trio, a water softener addresses the minerals that contribute to hardness and cloudiness in water. By removing calcium and magnesium ions, a water softener prevents scale buildup and enhances the overall clarity and appearance of your water.

Say goodbye to cloudy water and hello to crystal-clear perfection. Invest in a water filter, UV system, and water softener trio to enjoy the benefits of exceptional water clarity and quality throughout your home.
