You Don’t Want the Bad with the Good!
Just as untreated water can damage appliances that use it, unfiltered water can damage the health of those who drink it. Chemicals that may remain in the water that runs through your tap can provoke serious consequences. Bacteria, mold, and viruses often exist in unfiltered water and can cause external problems such as dryness or itchiness to the skin or scalp, and internal problems that may even potentially include certain cancers.
Benefits of water filtration include:
- Eliminating bad tastes and odors
- Removing chemicals like chlorine, chloramines, and carbon-based compounds
- Improving the feel and appearance of your skin
- Extending the life of your fixtures, faucets, and pipes
- Preventing certain health risks associated with chlorine and disinfectant by-products
- Saving money and time by not having to purchase bottled water

What Do the Experts Have to Say?
Gillece Services has taken efforts to educate people in Pittsburgh and the Southwestern PA region about the negative effects associated with poor water quality, and we offer water quality products to help address and prevent those effects. The concern over the water that flows through our faucets is ongoing, but many experts agree that the right water quality product can make a significant impact, in addition to awareness.
Dr. Mehmet Oz, who recently visited Pittsburgh, has talked about the dangers of water on his show, and in one episode sat down with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator, Lisa Jackson, to discuss the threats associated with our water. Dr. Oz shared his concerns over arsenic, mercury, and fluoride, which may be contaminating our drinking water, in addition to up to 84,000 other chemicals.
Arsenic has links to cancers of the lung, kidneys, bladder, liver, and skin. Mercury may also be harmful if found in our water, just as we hear of its dangers in the fish we eat. While fluoride may have health benefits for our teeth and bones, Jackson said that it’s all about the right amount. Too much fluoride can be damaging, causing a condition called Fluorosis which Dr. Oz addressed. To find out if these pollutants are possible threats to you, you can visit the EPA’s website to track down your neighborhood’s water supplier and also request a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) from your water company.
To fight the effects of potentially harmful materials that might be showing up in your water, Dr. Oz suggests using a reverse osmosis filtration system.
We also install whole-home water softeners to make cleaning easier and reduce the stress on your plumbing appliances.
