WATER SOFTENER FOR GROVELAND

WATER SOFTENER FOR REMOVING HARDNESS, IRON & MANGANESE

A water soft­en­er will remove hard water con­t­a­m­i­nants found in Grov­e­land water.  The main hard­ness min­er­als are mag­ne­sium and cal­ci­um (the hard­ness min­er­als), while iron and man­ganese are also com­mon­ly found in Grov­e­land.   A water soft­en­er will be very effec­tive in improv­ing your water qual­i­ty if these con­t­a­m­i­nants are present in your water sup­ply.  If your water has high lev­els or iron or man­ganese, an “up-flow” water soft­en­er ver­sus a “down-flow” water soft­en­er is the pre­ferred approach and will pro­vide an effec­tive solu­tion.

With­out a water soft­en­er, cal­ci­um and mag­ne­sium can have dev­as­tat­ing affects on your home’s plumb­ing as well as your abil­i­ty to clean, even though the EPA has no pub­lished lim­its on these.  Hard water inter­feres with almost every clean­ing task, from doing the laun­dry to wash­ing dish­es to tak­ing a show­er. Clothes can look dingy and feel rough and scratchy. Dish­es and glass­es get spot­ted and a film may build up on show­er doors, bath­tubs, sinks and faucets. Wash­ing your hair in hard water may leave it feel­ing sticky and dull.  Hard water can also cause a residue to build-up in pipes that can low­er water pres­sure through­out the house. The EPA max­i­mum allow­able lev­els for iron as a sec­ondary con­t­a­m­i­nant is .3 parts per mil­lion and for man­ganese is .05 parts per mil­lion as a sec­ondary con­t­a­m­i­nant. Small amounts of these min­er­als can have very notice­able, even dev­as­tat­ing affects on your home’s water qual­i­ty.

OTHER AFFECTS OF IRON, MANGANESE AND HARD WATER

Some of the affects of hard water, iron & man­ganese include cor­ro­sion and scal­ing inside pipes, major stain­ing through­out the home’s show­ers, bath­tubs, and sinks and destruc­tion of hot water heaters way ahead of their use­ful life.  Hard water scale can also build-up inside hot water heaters insu­lat­ing the tem­per­a­ture sen­sor inside the tank caus­ing them to work much hard­er to bring the tem­per­a­ture up to the set lev­el.  This will reduce the use­ful life of your hot water heater and require ear­ly replace­ment. Hydro­gen Sul­fide is evi­denced typ­i­cal­ly by a rot­ten egg smell in your water, how­ev­er this may also be caused by high Man­ganese lev­els in the water also.  A water fil­tra­tion specif­i­cal­ly for this prob­lem is effec­tive in cor­rect­ing this.  For those using their well water for out­side lawn irri­ga­tion, iron and man­ganese can cause major stain­ing of out­side walk­ways, house sid­ing and any­place the water touch­es.  See the link at http://h2ocare.com/lawn-irrigation/

WHAT DOES A WATER SOFTENER EFFECTIVELY REMOVE?

A water soft­en­er is effec­tive in remov­ing dis­solved forms of iron & man­ganese and hard­ness min­er­als. To remove par­tic­u­late iron or man­ganese, a car­tridge fil­ter with prop­er micron rat­ing will be effec­tive. Depend­ing on the spe­cif­ic sit­u­a­tion, this could require a series of fil­ters with dif­fer­ent size micron rat­ings to han­dle heav­ier lev­els in the water.  Select­ing the appro­pri­ate micron rat­ing and style of fil­ter can be deter­mined by a water treat­ment pro­fes­sion­al based on water test results and oth­er symp­toms. For more infor­ma­tion on Iron and Man­ganese in water, see our pub­lished arti­cles in Water Tech­nol­o­gy Mag­a­zine at the fol­low­ing link: http://h2ocare.com/publications/

WHAT DOESN’T A WATER SOFTENER REMOVE THAT MAY BE FOUND IN GROVELAND PRIVATE WELLS?

Oth­er con­t­a­m­i­nants found in Grov­e­land pri­vate well water include Radon and Arsenic.  A water soft­en­er (water soft­en­ing) will not remove these health threat con­t­a­m­i­nants. Radon is safe­ly removed with an aer­a­tion sys­tem that agi­tates the incom­ing well water, releas­ing the gas from the water in a sealed cham­ber, then vent­ing it to the out­side ambi­ent air.  Arsenic in water can be removed at the point of entry into the home with 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, but not for the entire home’s water sup­ply. Speak to a water treat­ment pro­fes­sion­al to decide which sys­tem is right for you.
