       WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION 

There are different types and sizes of whole house water filtration systems available to address the various types of potential water quality issues experienced in Newburyport well water or town water. Selecting the ones that address the water quality issues that have been identified and that you are concerned with is the task at hand. While matching the right technology is important, sizing the system to meet the water usage demands of your home is also 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, getting a water test to identify the minerals or contaminants in the water and at what quantity they exist is mandatory.  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, 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

HIGH EFFICIENCY WATER SOFTENER Newburyport, MA

     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.

In addition to the above systems described, there are many other types of systems to remove bad tastes & odors, sediment and many other objectionable minerals and contaminants in the water.  Starting with a water test will dictate the right approach.  For more information on common bad odors & tastes in New England water supplies, see the link at http://h2ocare.com/bad-odor-taste-water/.

WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION – Radon & Arsenic

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.
