WATER FILTRATION SYSTEMS

There are var­i­ous types and sizes of water fil­tra­tion sys­tems avail­able to address poten­tial water qual­i­ty issues expe­ri­enced in New­ton.  Not only is match­ing the right tech­nology impor­tant, siz­ing the sys­tem to meet the water usage demands of your home is also para­mount to spec­i­fy­ing the right sys­tem for you.  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 in pro­vid­ing you with con­sis­tent­ly excel­lent water qual­i­ty.

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 and oth­ers should be prop­er­ly sam­pled and brought to a cer­ti­fied lab­o­ra­to­ry for test­ing that requires spe­cial­ized equip­ment.

WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION

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”), a “down-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.

BAD ODORS & TASTE IN WATER

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.  If you are expe­ri­enc­ing a rot­ten egg smell in water, you like­ly have hydro­gen sul­fide in your well or pos­si­bly high lev­els of man­ganese.  For more detail on bad tastes & odors, see the link at http://h2ocare.com/bad-odor-taste-water/  Start­ing with a water test will dic­tate the right approach to elim­i­nate these types of water qual­i­ty issues.

WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION FOR POTENTIAL HEALTH THREATS IN PRIVATE WELLS

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.
