Are you experiencing rusty-pale, and yellow or red stains on sinks and other plumbing fixtures? What about a metallic taste in your drinking water? These could be signs that your water is rich in iron. Iron rich water typically isn’t a health concern since our bodies need iron in our blood, but iron rich water can cause problems for your water system and possibly damage appliances if left untreated. Iron rich water can clog wells, pumps, pipes, sprinklers, and other devices such as dishwashers which can lead to costly repairs. Iron conditioners work to lessen the amount of iron it your water system, which in turn will make your water taste better and save your appliances wear and tear in the long run.
Are you experiencing blue/green stains in your tubs and sink or corrosion in your plumbing? How about a metallic taste to your water? These could be indications of acidic water. Acid neutralizers work to lower the pH of your water, so it no longer carries the acidic traits.
Water softeners work effectively by reducing the amount of hard minerals (such as calcium and magnesium) that may be present in your water. If you’re experiencing mineral buildups on your faucets or water-stained dishes and glasses, a water softener may be exactly what you need! Did you know that hard water can also cause your soaps/detergents to clean less effectively? Clothes laundered in hard water may look dingy and feel harsh and scratchy, due to the increased amount of hard minerals. If you are experiencing mineral buildups or your clothes aren’t feeling as fresh and soft as they should be, you may want to consider installing a water softener. More information on indications of hard water can be found here.
Chlorine Removal Systems:
Chlorine has been used to disinfect public drinking water for decades, effectively protecting water from unwanted bacteria and pathogen growth. But, using chlorine to disinfect water has negative effects, especially on our health! Chlorine will also taint your drinking water with an unpleasant, chlorinated taste if it is not filtered out. Not to mention the many health concerns associated with long term consumption of chlorinated tap water. Chlorine removal systems utilize high quality Carbon filters that will remove the chlorine, unpleasant tastes, and odor that is associated with chlorinated water. Public drinking water is often chlorinated for sterilization, so it is recommended that you have a filtration system installed that can remove the chlorine from your water supply.
Ultraviolet Light Systems:
Ultraviolet Light Filtration Systems take water filtration to the next level, providing a safe solution against chlorine-resistant microorganisms. UV light systems are highly effective, destroying 99.99% of microorganisms. They are very reliable, cost effective, and chemical free solution to your filtration needs. No chemicals are involved and UV light systems are more effective then chlorine when disinfecting water of pathogens and bacteria. UV system filtration is only one of 4 filtration methods that are approved by the FDA. UV light is only able to eliminate microorganisms in water. So when these systems are used in conjunction with other filtration methods, they can provide pure, great tasting drinking water.
Reverse Osmosis System:
A Reverse Osmosis filtration system is one of the most popular and best water filtration methods available. RO filtration is effective and safe, while at the same time providing you with “better-than-bottled water” quality water for just pennies per gallon.
