WATER SOFTENER FOR HARD WATER, IRON AND MANGANESE
The most commonly found water quality issues in private wells in Carver are Manganese, and the hard water minerals Calcium and Magnesium. While Radon and Arsenic are less likely to be found, they should be tested for. While naturally occurring, the effects of these contaminants on your home’s water can either cause potential health concerns or aesthetic and other problems.
Manganese and Iron are naturally occurring minerals commonly found in New England’s water supply. Together, they are commonly referred to as “The Stainers” in the water treatment industry and can be effectively removed with a water softener system through Ion Exchange technology.
Hard water minerals can also be removed with water softeners.

Soft water makes a significant and noticeable difference in cleaning, showering, shampooing your hair and cleaning your skin. For more on hard water, see hard water usgs.
