Many people think of Tampa plumbers as expensive laborers who simply do a dirty job. Truth be told, plumbing is very technical and requires ongoing continued education. Plumbing is expensive. Responsible contractors have to have good, well-maintained equipment. They need to carry all the proper insurances and they need to provide ongoing training programs. Most of all, they need to have good, dependable people who care about the job that they do. All of these things are expensive. But, how valuable is your time and your family’s health? Plumbers protect the health in society. This is why it is so important to make sure you are dealing with a licensed contractor. Especially when dealing with water filtration and purification. Saving money is always good, but if it is potentially compromising your health, is the few dollars you might save worth the risk?
In Florida, one can install water filtration equipment, legally, by simply acquiring an occupational license. It requires no real training by the government, yet the government requires a licensed plumbing contractor to install a water heater. Makes no sense right? Water that is ingested requires no training or proven expertise and anyone can install it. Plumbing contractors must pass a very difficult test to obtain a license and they must have proven years of experience to even take the test. A water filtration installer simply requires the $25.00 it costs for the occupational license, a few tools, and basic transportation to and from the point of installation.
Consider reverse osmosis and water softening for a moment. Both systems require a drain that typically ties into the home drainage system. If the system is not installed properly, cross contamination is very likely. Cross contamination is the siphoning of sewer water into the potable water supply. It introduces sewer water into your drinking and bathing water. This is much more common than you might think.
