WHOLE HOME WATER SOFTENING

water softener company South Berwick, ME

Water Softener & Sediment Filter

A water softener is a type of whole house water treatment system that is designed for removing hard water minerals (magnesium & calcium) as well as dissolved iron and manganese from the water.  For water with high levels of iron or manganese (“the stainers”), an “up-flow” water softener is recommended to prevent mineral build-up in the bottom of the water softener.  Also, high efficiency water softeners that are more efficient with both water and salt usage are preferred.  Particulate iron and manganese can be removed with a properly specified cartridge sediment filter.

WHOLE HOME WATER TREATMENT SYSTEMS – Radon & arsenic in private wells

Other contaminants found in New England well water include Radon and Arsenic. A water softener will not remove these health threat contaminants. Radon in water is safely removed with an aeration system that agitates the incoming well water, releasing the gas from the water in a sealed chamber. This gas is then safely vented to the outside ambient air.

Radon in Water Filtration

Arsenic in water can be removed at the point of entry into the home by installing tanks filled with arsenic media that captures the arsenic before it can get into the home’s water supply. Point of use systems for drinking water can use reverse osmosis membrane technology to effectively remove arsenic at the point of dispensing. Speak to a water treatment professional to decide which system is right for you.
