Some of the com­mon con­t­a­m­i­nants found in pri­vate well water need­ing water fil­tra­tion or water soft­en­ing in towns such as Taunton, Berkley, Dighton, Free­town, Lakeville and oth­ers include Arsenic, Radon, High Iron, Man­ganese and Low pH.  Reme­di­a­tion of these prob­lems can be achieved with water soft­en­ers and oth­er water fil­tra­tion sys­tems for pH neu­tral­iza­tion, arsenic spe­cif­ic resin for the removal of arsenic from well water, radon removal sys­tems and reverse osmo­sis purifi­ca­tion.

Have your water sup­ply test­ed for con­t­a­m­i­nants by con­tact­ing a H2O Care  treat­ment pro­fes­sion­al. If it is a health threat relat­ed con­t­a­m­i­nant such as Arsenic or Radon, we can help you pre­pare a prop­er sam­ple to send to a state cer­ti­fied lab­o­ra­to­ry and assist in inter­pret­ing the results. Prop­er sam­pling requires cer­tain pro­ce­dures and time lim­i­ta­tions to pull a reli­able sam­ple. For basic water test­ing for pH, Iron, Man­ganese, Hard­ness or Total Dis­solved Solids, we offer com­pli­men­ta­ry water tests to Bris­tol, Essex, Mid­dle­sex, Suf­folk, Nor­folk, Worces­ter and Ply­mouth coun­ties.  Once test results become avail­able for analy­sis, the prop­er water soft­en­er or water fil­tra­tion sys­tem can be rec­om­mend­ed.
