whole house water filtration in Maynard


Hard water minerals found in Maynard, MA can be removed with a water softener. The main hard water minerals are magnesium and calcium. EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has no maximum levels set for calcium and magnesium in drinking water, however, these minerals can have negative or damaging affects on your home’s plumbing as well as your ability to clean. Hard water interferes with almost every cleaning task, including washing dishes, laundry and taking a shower. Clothing can look dingy and feel rough and scratchy. Dishes and glasses get spotted and film may build up on shower doors, bathtubs, sinks and faucets. Washing your hair in hard water may leave it feeling sticky and dull. Finally, hard water can cause a scale build-up in pipes that can lower water pressure throughout the house.

Water softeners are 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 regarding Iron and Manganese in water, see link to articles in Water Technology Magazine at: http://publications/.On town water supplies that chlorinate and also contain hardness minerals, iron or manganese, there is a duel purpose (stack system) combination unit that can remove the chlorine while also softening the water. For more on hard water, see the link at Hard water.


Some affects 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. Without water softening, this will reduce the useful life of your hot water heater and require early replacement.
