Water Softener Solutions


As a Boylston, Massachusetts resident, a water filtration or water softener system may greatly benefit your home’s water quality.  Whether you have well water or town supplied water, a properly designed and installed system can noticeably improve water quality. Later in this write-up, specific contaminants that are commonly found in private wells and the public water supply are identified. Additionally, various proven water quality improvement methods are covered as well. Hard water (magnesium & calcium), dissolved iron and dissolved manganese are all effectively removed with a properly specified water softener system which takes into account both the level of these minerals and the estimated volume of water used in the home.
