A water softener is typically installed to remove hard water minerals (magnesium and calcium) and dissolved iron or manganese in the water through a technology called Ion Exchange. To remove particulate iron or manganese, a properly sized sediment filter is required. Hard water can make it very difficult to clean dishes, glassware, showers and bathtubs and other plumbing fixtures. It can also make it difficult to wash your skin and hair as the hardness inhibits soaps and shampoos from fully doing their job. Showering in soft water is a noticeable change in experience if you have hard water. Additionally, hard water can eventually have damaging affects on your plumbing distribution system as well as on water using appliances. Hot water heaters can have their useful lives reduced due to hard water, for example.

SOURCES OF NEEDHAM TOWN WATER

Needham draws potable water from two separate sources. The primary source is the Charles River Wellfield, which has been the major source of water since the 1930’s. Water is drawn from the wellfield and treated at the adjacent Charles River Water Treatment Facility. The Town’s secondary source is the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA), mostly in the summer when water usage is highest. In addition, Needham has emergency connections to provide and receive water from the towns of Wellesley and Dedham, MA. The Needham Annual Water Quality Report can be seen at the following link Needham H2o Quality Report. The following chart can be used to determine where your water’s hardness level is. Water testing can be performed on-site by your water treatment company or by getting a sample to a certified laboratory.
