WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM – GROTON, MASSACHUSETTS

Whole house water filtration in Groton, MA

Water filtration options in Groton

As beautiful as the well preserved rural town of Groton, MA is, if you have a private well supplying your home’s water needs, the quality of that water may require some type of water filtration system or water softener. A properly designed, installed and maintained water filtration system will provide you with truly excellent water quality for your home or business.

START WITH A WATER TEST

Water testing in Groton, MA

Water testing

Water testing should be conducted by an EPA or Massachusetts state certified laboratory and should minimally include analysis for the parameters in the table below.  If you are uncertain as to how to take a proper sample or what to test for, you should contact a lab or water treatment professional for assistance.  Certain items can be tested for on-site by a qualified water treatment professional  For health threat contaminants, a proper sample should be taken to a certified state laboratory.  Typical items tested for are as follows:

Coliform bacteria pH
Arsenic Radon
Chloride Sodium
Iron Sulfate
Lead Conductivity
Manganese Nitrogen-Nitrate


PRIVATE WELLS AND WATER TESTING RESPONSIBILITY

You are responsible for your own water testing if you have a private well, not the town. Most towns’ Boards of Health will require certain testing prior to moving into, or selling a home.  The proper on-going testing intervals can be determined by discussing your particular situation with a water treatment professional.

COMMON WATER QUALITY ISSUES IN GROTON

Common issues encountered in Groton private wells are manganese and iron along with low pH and sometimes the health threats radon and arsenic making their way into the water.  If the testing results for Radon exceed the current Massachusetts guideline of 10,000 pCi/L in water, the radon must be removed from the water and the Board of Health recommends testing the air for Radon as well.  It should be noted that New Hampshire requires action if radon is 2,000 pCi/L (pico curries per liter), Maine and Rhode Island are at 4,000 pCi/L.  The maximum allowable level of Arsenic in drinking water per the EPA is .01 mg/L (miligrams per liter) or 10 parts per billion. For more information on this see the link at http://www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/massdep/water/drinking/arsenic-in-private-well-water-faqs.html.  Hydrogen sulfide is typically evidenced by a rotten egg smell in the water, however, this can also be a sign of high manganese.  A properly specified water filtration system will correct this problem.

EFFECTIVE WATER FILTRATION SYSTEMS

A water filtration system can be installed for the removal of any of the contaminants listed in the above table and more.  A water softener is typically installed to remove dissolved iron or manganese in the water through a technology called Ion Exchange.  Sediment filtration will remove particulate iron or manganese in the water.  Arsenic is removed with tanks containing a specific media that “grabs” the arsenic out of the water.  Removing radon from water requires a system where the water is highly agitated releasing the radon gas from the water into a sealed chamber, then vented outside the home to ambient air.  Other technologies and systems may be required to remove other contaminants.  These systems are typically installed in the basement at the water supply point of entry.

WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION – WESTON, MASSACHUSETTS

Whole house water filtration systems for Weston, MA

WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM OPTIONS FOR WESTON, MASS

Various types and sizes of whole house water filtration systems are available to address potential water quality issues experienced in Weston town water or well water. Selecting the ones that address the water quality issues that have been identified and that you are concerned with is the task at hand.  Not only is matching the right technology important, sizing the system to meet the water usage demands of your home is also very important.  Last, but not least, a professionally plumbed system is also critical as well as maintenance of the system throughout the years to optimize the useful life and proper functioning of your new equipment.

While symptoms of water quality issues such as bad odors & taste, staining of laundry, bathroom fixtures, etc. are indicators of problems, the preferred starting point is to get a water test to identify the minerals or contaminants in the water and at what quantity they exist.  This will lead to an effective system recommendation and route to providing your home with excellent water quality.  While certain minerals & contaminants can be tested on-site (iron, hardness, pH, total dissolved solids), health threat items like radon in water, arsenic in water, nitrates and others should be properly sampled and brought to a certified laboratory for testing that requires specialized equipment.

WATER SOFTENER SYSTEMS

Whole house water filtration systems

A water softener is a type of whole house water filtration system that is designed for removing hard water minerals (magnesium & calcium) as well as dissolved iron and manganese from the water.  For water with high levels of iron or manganese (“the stainers”), an “up-flow” water softener is recommended to prevent mineral build-up in the bottom of the water softener.  Also, high efficiency water softeners that are more efficient with both water and salt usage are preferred.

In addition to the above systems, there are many other types of systems to remove bad tastes & odors, sediment and many other objectionable minerals and contaminants in the water.  Starting with a water test will dictate the right approach.  For more information on common bad odors & tastes in New England water supplies, see the link at http://h2ocare.com/bad-odor-taste-water/.

 

WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION FOR OTHER CONTAMINANTS

Other contaminants found in New England well water include Radon and Arsenic.  A water softener will not remove these health threat contaminants. Radon in water is safely removed with an aeration system that agitates the incoming well water, releasing the gas from the water in a sealed chamber. This gas is then safely vented to the outside ambient air.

Arsenic in water can be removed at the point of entry into the home by installing tanks filled with arsenic specific resin that captures the arsenic before it can get into the home’s water supply.  Point of use systems for drinking water can use reverse osmosis technology to effectively remove arsenic as well. Speak to a water treatment professional to decide which system is right for you.
