Hard water softening — danvers, mass.

hard water Danvers, MA



Water is con­sid­ered “hard” when your Dan­vers water con­tains high­er lev­els of dis­solved cal­ci­um and mag­ne­sium. Hard water makes clean­ing clothes more dif­fi­cult, cre­ates streak­ing on dish­es and glass­es, scal­ing on faucets and show­er heads and makes clean­ing your hair and skin well a chal­lenge.  Hard water can also dam­age your home’s pip­ing dis­tri­b­u­tion sys­tem if not cor­rect­ed. Hard water makes it hard to clean. There are high effi­cien­cy fil­tra­tion solu­tions that will con­di­tion your hard water by remov­ing these hard water min­er­als through the proven ion exchange water soft­en­ing process.

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, chlo­rine), 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.

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 described, there are many oth­er types of sys­tems to remove bad tastes & odors, sed­i­ment and oth­er objec­tion­able min­er­als and con­t­a­m­i­nants in the water.  If you are expe­ri­enc­ing a rot­ten egg smell in water, you like­ly have hydro­gen sul­fide in your well water or pos­si­bly a high lev­el of man­ganese.  A water test and analy­sis will lead to the best approach.  For more infor­ma­tion on bad odors & taste in your water, see the link at http://h2ocare.com/bad-odor-taste-water/.
