2022 was another year full of renovation innovation, new trends, and successful projects. As we look forward to 2023, we recap the past year while gearing up for the new year ahead.
This year we educated clients new and returned about many important water systems crucial to your home such as carbon filters and activated carbon filters, why you should insulate your water heater for maximum energy efficiency, the dangers of agricultural runoff and other contaminants that could pose serious threats to your health if you forgo reverse osmosis systems, and even addressed the link between poor hydration during summer and the necessity for clean drinking water and filtration. Whatever your water needs from water softener installation and repair to filtration of iron, chlorine, and other dangerous particles, we’re here to help in the new year as we’ve helped you in 2022.
What can we expect for water management in 2023? Every four years, the American Society of Civil Engineers releases its Infrastructure Report Card. In 2021, U.S. infrastructure received a C- grade. While it is an improvement, it should be a warning sign to homeowners that additional, private water care is necessary to their homes. Drinking water utilities have to keep up with rapidly changing regulations specific to emerging contaminants like PFAS, lead and other chemicals. Chemicals not previously detected, or chemicals found in far lesser concentrations, are sometimes discovered in a community’s water supply. These are known as contaminants of emerging concern or emerging contaminants. This means it’s important to have an updated water treatment system in your own home.
Thank you to all of our clients who supported us through 2022. From the Lehigh Valley Water Systems team, we’re fortunate for your business and excited for what the new year will bring for us. From new kitchen and bathroom renovations to new design trends that redefine homes, we’ll be there every step of the way.
