water softener Natick, MA

Water Softener Solutions

A water softener is effective in removing some of the most common contaminants found in private wells or the public water supply in Natick. The main issues are the hard water minerals magnesium and calcium.  Small amounts of these minerals can have large affects on your home’s water quality. The EPA maximum allowable levels for iron as a secondary contaminant is .3 parts per million. The EPA maximum allowable level for manganese as a secondary contaminant is .05 parts per million. As small as these amounts seem, their affects can create quite an impact. Water softening will be very effective if you have hard water, iron or manganese in your water.

THE AFFECTS OF IRON, MANGANESE & HARD WATER

Hard water affects include corrosion and scaling inside pipes, as well as major staining throughout the home’s showers, bathtubs, and sinks. Hard water is also notorious for destroying hot water heaters way ahead of their useful life. Scale build-up inside hot water heaters can insulate the temperature sensor inside the tank causing them to work much harder to bring the temperature up to the set level. Iron and manganese in water can create orange,rusty or black/brown staining and corrosion in the home as well. For more on hard water see hard water epa.
