  WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION SYSTEMS 

There are dif­fer­ent types and sizes of whole house water fil­tra­tion sys­tems avail­able to address the var­i­ous types of poten­tial water qual­i­ty issues expe­ri­enced in Boston. Not only is match­ing the right tech­nol­o­gy impor­tant, but also siz­ing the sys­tem to meet the water usage demands of your home is key. 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.

The Boston water sup­ply and many sur­round­ing cities and towns are sup­plied by the Mass­a­chu­setts Water Resources Author­i­ty (MWRA). The lat­est avail­able Annu­al Water Qual­i­ty Report can be viewed at the fol­low­ing link MWRA Annu­al Report. Treat­ed water must trav­el a long dis­tance to its even­tu­al points of use which may cause taste & odor issues as well as var­i­ous types of stain­ing in sinks, toi­lets, show­ers and oth­er plumb­ing fix­tures.  You may expe­ri­ence taste and odor issues that are com­mon­ly asso­ci­at­ed with chlo­ramine (a chlo­rine, ammo­nia com­pound), which is used as sec­ondary dis­in­fec­tion for bac­te­r­i­al growth as it trav­els through the dis­tri­b­u­tion sys­tem.

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.

There are dif­fer­ent types and sizes of whole house water fil­tra­tion sys­tems avail­able to address the var­i­ous types of poten­tial water qual­i­ty issues expe­ri­enced in Lawrence well water or town water.

WATER SOFTENER SYSTEMS

WHOLE HOUSE WATER SOFTENER SYSTEM

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 sys­tem described, 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.

WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION FOR REGIONAL HEALTH THREATS

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.

WATER SOFTENER FOR HARD WATER

WATER SOFTENER EFFECTIVENESS

A water soft­en­er is effec­tive in remov­ing some of the most com­mon con­t­a­m­i­nants found in pri­vate wells or the pub­lic water sup­ply in Nat­ick. The main issues are the hard water min­er­als mag­ne­sium and cal­ci­um and pos­si­bly iron or man­ganese.. Small amounts of these min­er­als can have large affects on your home’s water qual­i­ty. The EPA max­i­mum allow­able lev­els for iron as a sec­ondary con­t­a­m­i­nant is .3 parts per mil­lion. The EPA max­i­mum allow­able lev­el for man­ganese as a sec­ondary con­t­a­m­i­nant is .05 parts per mil­lion. As you can see, these are very small amounts, but their affects can cre­ate quite an impact. Water soft­en­ing will be very effec­tive if you have hard water, iron or man­ganese in your water.  Up-flow ver­sus down-flow water soft­en­ers are more effec­tive, par­tic­u­lar­ly if there are ele­vat­ed lev­els of iron or man­ganese in your water.

THE AFFECTS OF IRON, MANGANESE & HARD WATER

Hard water affects include cor­ro­sion and scal­ing inside pipes, as well as major stain­ing through­out the home’s show­ers, bath­tubs, and sinks. Hard water is also noto­ri­ous for destroy­ing hot water heaters way ahead of their use­ful life (scale build-up inside hot water heaters can insu­late the tem­per­a­ture sen­sor inside the tank caus­ing them to work much hard­er to bring the tem­per­a­ture up to the set lev­el).  Iron and man­ganese in water can cre­ate orange,rusty or black/brown stain­ing and cor­ro­sion in the home as well. Hydro­gen Sul­fide is evi­denced typ­i­cal­ly by a rot­ten egg smell in your water, how­ev­er this may also be caused by high Man­ganese lev­els in the water also.  A water fil­tra­tion sys­tem specif­i­cal­ly for this prob­lem is effec­tive in cor­rect­ing this.  For those using their well water for out­side lawn irri­ga­tion, iron and man­ganese can cause major stain­ing of out­side walk­ways, house sid­ing and any­place the water touch­es.  See the link at http://h2ocare.com/lawn-irrigation/.

WHAT WILL A WATER SOFTENER REMOVE?

A water soft­en­er is effec­tive in remov­ing dis­solved forms of iron & man­ganese and hard water min­er­als.  To remove par­tic­u­late iron or man­ganese, a car­tridge fil­ter with prop­er micron rat­ing will be effec­tive. Depend­ing on the spe­cif­ic sit­u­a­tion, this could require a series of fil­ters with dif­fer­ent size micron rat­ings to han­dle heav­ier lev­els in the water.  Select­ing the appro­pri­ate micron rat­ing and style of fil­ter can be deter­mined by a water treat­ment pro­fes­sion­al based on water test results and oth­er symp­toms.  For more infor­ma­tion on Iron and Man­ganese in water, see our pub­lished arti­cles in Water Tech­nol­o­gy Mag­a­zine at the fol­low­ing link: http://h2ocare.com/publications/.
