Most people don’t realize that there are three different types of water: utility grade, working grade and drinking water. It’s helpful to be aware of these different types of water so that we understand how they are used and to better educate us on water usage.
Utility grade water is water that is best used for watering your lawn, plants, shrubbery, etc. Utility grade water isn’t required to go through treatment and is therefore not encouraged to be used as drinking water.
Working grade water is typically treated because it needs to be a higher quality because it runs through your plumbing at your home. When we test the water in our homes we are going to be testing either the working grade water or the drinking water.
Drinking water is the water we use for drinking usage. We want to make sure that the water you use for consumption is clean and purified. Drinking water is an important element for our daily living and it’s no secret that we need to drink a lot of water.
What does this mean for you? Hague Water strives to make sure that the water in your home is clean. Depending on where you are located, either inside city limits or outside of city limits, the water will be different. We encourage new residents to double check the quality of water with an in-home water test from Hague Water! Contact us to learn how one of our dealers can conduct a free in-home water test!
