WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION SOLUTIONS

There are various types and sizes of whole house water filtration systems available to address potential water quality issues experienced in Needham town water or well water. Not only is matching the right technology important, but also sizing the system to meet the water usage demands of your home is very important.  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.

WATER SOFTENER SYSTEMS

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.  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 .
