Whole House Water Filtration Solutions

Various types and sizes of whole house water filtration systems are available to address potential water quality issues experienced in Hudson well water or town water. Matching the right technology and sizing the system to meet the water usage demands of your home are very important.  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.

WATER SOFTENERS – Hard water, Iron & Manganese

High Efficiency Water Softener

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. For a more detailed description of hard water, see the link at water.usgs.gov/edu/hardness.html.

PFAS IN WATER PFAS in water Hudson NH

PFAS (Per and Polyfluroalkyl substances) are a group of man-made chemicals that have been manufactured and used in a variety of industries since the 1940s. Some of the more common commercial applications have been for products like Teflon, stain & waterresistant materials, paints, polishes and fire fighting foams (a major source of ground water pollution near airports, military bases and fire fighting training centers). These chemicals are being detected at dangerous levels in drinking water supplies around the country.  For removal, Activated Carbon, Reverse Osmosis & Ion Exchange technologies have been effective.  For more information on this, see the link at https://h2ocare.com/pfas removal/.

WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION – Arsenic & Radon 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.
