How to Get Safe Drinking Water in Orlando, FL

City Drinking Water

Providing safe drinking water to residents can be challenging for many cities. Orange County Utilities provides drinking water to the majority of residents in the City of Orlando. The water originates in the Floridian Aquifer, a natural spring that lies beneath the city.  The water is pumped to the water treatment plant where naturally occurring hydrogen sulfide is removed. The water is chlorinated as part of the disinfection process and fluoride is added. Although city water is safe to drink, the 2015 Water Quality Report indicates the presence of low levels of arsenic, barium, chlorine, nitrate and thallium along with 20ppm of sodium.

Water Filtration Systems

There are always going to be residual chemicals in the drinking water of any city water treatment process. While these contaminants may be at levels considered safe to drink, the water supply can sometimes have a foul odor or an unpleasant after taste. However, Orlando residents can filter out most remaining contaminants and odors with a professional in-home water filtration system.  We offer a number of affordable home water filtration systems including Watershield Gold IronBlock Systems for city water treatment.

Watershield Gold IronBlock Systems combine patented self-chlorinating technology* with advanced electronics to perform like four units in one — softening, removing iron and manganese, and raising low pH levels. This advanced system also reduces odors caused by nuisance bacteria and minor sulfur conditions. All of these benefits ensure protection of your household plumbing from staining, scale and mineral deposits, while providing your home with softened water.
