WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION

There are various types and sizes of whole house water filtration systems available to address potential water quality issues experienced in Belmont well water or town water. Not only is matching the right technology important, but also sizing the system to meet the water usage demands of your home is key. Last, but not least, a professionally plumbed system is also critical as well as maintenance of the system throughout the years to optimize the useful life and proper functioning of your new equipment.

While symptoms of water quality issues such as bad odors & taste, staining of laundry, bathroom fixtures, etc. are indicators of problems, the preferred starting point is to get a water test to identify the minerals or contaminants in the water and at what quantity they exist. This will lead to an effective system recommendation and route to providing your home with excellent water quality. While certain minerals & contaminants can be tested on-site (iron, hardness, pH, total dissolved solids, chlorine level), health threat items like radon in water, arsenic in water, nitrates and others should be properly sampled and brought to a certified laboratory for testing that requires specialized equipment.

WATER SOFTENER SYSTEMS

WHOLE HOUSE WATER SOFTENING SYSTEMS

A water softener is a type of whole house water filtration 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.   If the main concern is chlorine levels, bad taste & odor, a system which looks similar to a water softener but contains activated carbon media inside will address this problem and improve water throughout the home .

You may notice odor and taste issues if your home is supplied by town water, typically associated with Chlorine.  Chlorine is used for disinfection purposes by the town to control microorganisms including bacteria and others that may be present in the water distribution system.  Carbon water filtration systems are effective at removing chlorine and the associated taste and odors that come with it.  These systems can either be installed at the point of entry in your home, typically in the basement, or at a point of use for drinking water only.
