Tarrant County’s Water Quality & Filtration System Information

post img

While it may look clear and harmless, the reality is that there can be plenty of toxins and contaminants lurking in the water flowing through your taps. Short of avoiding the use of discolored or noxious-smelling water, there are precious few ways to ensure the water within your home is safe to drink and use. These solutions include installing water softening and water filtration systems, which can effectively remove sediment, heavy metals, minerals, viruses, and bacteria from the water you depend on.

At Leak Geeks Plumbing, our licensed and insured plumbing technicians can test the water quality in your home and install, maintain, and repair the water softening and filtration systems that will deliver the performance and protection you require.

Call Leak Geeks at 817-431-8929 to learn more about the advantages of water filters and softeners in the Dallas-Fort Worth region and schedule installation.


Over the past 20 years, Fort Worth has actively removed lead pipes within the city’s system. However, this process is still ongoing, and while lead contamination within city water does fall below federally accepted levels, that doesn’t mean it’s not a problem you can ignore.

Indeed, lead consumption can have significant long-term impacts on your health. Over time, exposure to lead in the water can damage the brain and central nervous system. Significant exposure is linked to coma and death, and it permanently stymies the intellectual capacity of children. Taking additional precautions against exposure by installing a water filtration system isn’t just a cost-effective purchase; it’s a necessary investment against a known, unresolved hazard within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

Forever Chemicals

Forever chemicals have made quite a few waves in recent years. These toxins are found in varying concentrations within the region, and the best way to protect your family’s health is to install water filtration systems that ensure these chemicals don’t flow through the taps in your home. These chemicals don’t break down easily and can remain in your body for years, decades, and even longer once consumed.

Common forever chemicals found in water supplies throughout the region include:

  • PFOA
  • PFOS
  • PFHxS
  • PFNA
  • PFDoA

Of course, not every system can effectively remove these. Selecting a system that utilizes an NSF 53 filter is important. Testing has proven these filters effective at removing even the most significant concentrations of forever chemicals from municipal and well water sources.

Whole-Home Water Filtration

Whole-home water filtration systems are cost-effective, easily installed systems that protect your family from toxic exposures and the long-term health consequences of drinking polluted water. This includes serious illness and even death.

“Forever” chemicals and other toxins enter the water supply via various sources, including food wrappers, nonstick cookware, firefighting agents, cleaning supplies, and grease. And because they’re entirely unseen and extremely hard to detect via taste and smell, the best way to prevent exposure is to install a water filtration system capable of removing them from the water you use for cooking, cleaning, bathing, etc.
