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 Marshfield, 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. Lastly, 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.

Sediment & Carbon Filtration

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.  For a more complete description of potential bad odors and taste in your water, see the link at https://h2ocare.com/bad-odor-taste/.

Trihalomethane formation (a byproduct of the chlorination process) in chlorinated water supplies is something to watch for.  This is typically a result of a chlorinated water supply coming in contact with organic material causing a chemical reaction creating this potentially dangerous by-product.  Activated carbon water filtration systems are effective at removing chlorine and the associated taste and odors that come with it as well as Trihalomethanes.  For more information on Trihalomethanes, see the link at Trihalomethane information.

Water Softener & Sediment Filter

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.  These are self-cleaning systems that periodically go into a “backwash” cycle to clean the troublesome minerals captured off the resin beads contained inside the water softener.  The captured minerals are sent to drain and the resin beads are then clean and ready to begin capturing the minerals all over again.  Also, high efficiency water softeners that are more efficient with both water and salt usage are preferred.
