HARD WATER SOFTENING SYSTEMS

WHAT IS HARD WATER?

Water is con­sid­ered “hard” when your South Berwick water con­tains high­er lev­els of dis­solved cal­ci­um and mag­ne­sium. Hard water makes clean­ing clothes more dif­fi­cult, cre­ates streak­ing on dish­es and glass­es, 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 water soft­en­ing solu­tions that will con­di­tion your water by remov­ing these hard water min­er­als through the proven ion exchange water soft­en­ing process.  Com­pare your water test results to the fol­low­ing chart:

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), health threat items like radon in water, arsenic in water, nitrates, bac­te­ria and oth­ers should be prop­er­ly sam­pled and brought to a cer­ti­fied lab­o­ra­to­ry for test­ing that requires spe­cial­ized equip­ment.

                       HIGH EFFICIENCY WATER SOFTENING 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.

WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION FOR OTHER CONTAMINANTS

Oth­er con­t­a­m­i­nants found in the well water of South Berwick and the New Eng­land region 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 into a sealed cham­ber for fur­ther safe vent­ing out­side of the home.

RADON IN WATER WHOLE HOUSE FILTRATION

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.

WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION FOR ARSENIC

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.  A water test and analy­sis will lead to the best approach.  For more infor­ma­tion on bad odors & taste issues, go to the link at http://h2ocare.com/bad-odor-taste-water/.
