Some of the more com­mon water fil­tra­tion and water soft­en­ing needs in towns such as Box­ford, Hamil­ton, George­town, Grov­e­land and Tops­field include Arsenic, Radon, High Iron, Man­ganese and Low pH. New­bury, Ipswich and oth­er coastal towns like New­bury­port and Glouces­ter may also face salt water intru­sion into their pri­vate wells if drilled near the ocean, marsh­lands. or oth­er water­ways. The town of Box­ford con­sists of all pri­vate wells with no town water sup­plied.  Reme­di­a­tion of these prob­lems can be achieved with water soft­en­ers, or 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.  Salt water intru­sion into wells will need a whole home reverse osmo­sis sys­tem to effec­tive­ly desali­nate the incom­ing water sup­ply, some­thing H2O Care, Inc. has become expert at.

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.  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.  Water fil­tra­tion and/or water soft­en­er spec­i­fi­ca­tions will be deter­mined by the results of this water test­ing.
