      WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION

Various types and sizes of whole house water filtration systems are available to address potential water quality issues experienced in Holliston, Massachusetts town water or well water.  Not only is matching the right technology important, sizing the system to meet the water usage demands of your home is also key.  Additionally, 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), 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 & OTHER FILTRATION SYSTEMS

WHOLE HOUSE WATER SOFTENER & FILTRATION 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.

TRIHALOMETHANES & HALOACETIC ACID

In addition to the above systems described, there are other types of systems to remove other contaminants in the water such as Trihalomethanes and Haloacetic Acid which may be present in town supplied water.  If the levels of these are above a certain level, your town is required to notify you as they may have negative health affects depending on amounts and length of exposure.  Activated carbon filtration is effective in removing these two contaminants from the water.

WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION – 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 REMOVAL

Arsenic in water can be removed at the point of entry into the home by installing tanks filled with arsenic specific resin 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 technology to effectively remove arsenic as well. Speak to a water treatment professional to decide which system is right for you.
