  WATER FILTRATION OPTIONS

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

 

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.

REGIONAL HEALTH THREATSRADON & ARSENIC IN 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 safe­ly vent­ed out­side the home to ambi­ent air. These sys­tems are typ­i­cal­ly installed in the base­ment at the water sup­ply point of entry.
