We Love Tampa!
When you take a look at the statistics below from wikipedia, you can see that a lot of experts agree, Tampa is a great place to live! We agree too.
Unfortunately, one of the problems we in Tampa have to deal with is hard water. Water in the Tampa Bay area has an average hardness of 7-10 grains per gallon (gpg). This is considered fairly hard as far as hard water is concerned. According to the Water Quality Association, here are the guidelines for rating water:
- soft: 0-3.5 grains per gallon (gpg)
- moderate: 3.5-7.0 gpg
- hard: 7.0-10.5 gpg
That is why we offer whole house, no electricity solutions for treating the water in your home and in your business. You will be amazed at the difference a Kinetico Water Treatment System will make to the quality of your life. No more white spots and stains on your dishes, plumbing fixtures, water heaters and more.

Tampa was ranked as the 5th best outdoor city by Forbes in 2008. Tampa also ranks as the fifth most popular American city, based on where people want to live, according to a 2009 Pew Research Center study. A 2004 survey by the NYU newspaper Washington Square News ranked Tampa as a top city for "twenty-somethings." Tampa is ranked as a "Gamma+" world city by Loughborough University, ranked alongside other world cities such as Phoenix, Charlotte, Rotterdam, and Santo Domingo.
Potential Sources of Drinking Water Contamination in Tampa
(thanks to the Soil & Water Department at the University of Florida for the content below)
However, population growth and land development in the region have situated these drinking water sources in close proximity to developed urban and suburban areas. As a result, the risk for contamination of drinking water sources is increasing. Potential drinking water pollutants originate from point sources, such as wastewater treatment plants and industrial outflows, and non-point sources, such as runoff or leachate (water that moves through the soil to the groundwater) from urban, suburban, industrial, and agricultural areas (Figure 2). Some of the potential contaminants of drinking water supplies include:
Microorganisms: Most microscopic organisms are not harmful, but some, such as E. coli (a bacteria) and Cryptosporidium (a protozoan) can make you sick if found in drinking water. The most common sources of microorganism contaminants in drinking water come from human and animal wastes. Animal sources of microorganisms can be natural wildlife or animal agriculture, while human sources can come from malfunctioning septic systems.
Radioactive elements: Some contaminants, such as radon gas, can emit radioactivity. Radon is a naturally occurring gas that can be dissolved in water. The source of radon in drinking water is the breakdown of rocks that contain the gas.
Inorganic contaminants: Examples of inorganic contaminants include lead, arsenic, nitrate, and phosphate. Lead can come from degraded water pipes, while nitrate and phosphate may come from the use of fertilizers or animal wastes left on the soil in agricultural and urban areas. Regional mining operations may also be a source of phosphates.
Organic contaminants: Organic chemicals can originate from chemical spills or leaking storage tanks. For example, gasoline or oil may be spilled on the ground or leak from underground storage tanks. Pesticides that are used in agricultural and urban areas can also be a source of organic contaminants.
Pharmaceuticals and personal care products: Medications that are flushed down the drain and/or excreted from human bodies may find their way into the drinking water supply, as can products like anti-microbial soaps, sunscreens, and cosmetics.
