 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 Wrentham well water or town water. Not only is matching the right technology important, but also sizing the system to meet the water usage demands of your home is 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.

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.

Sediment & Carbon Filtration

If the main concern is chlorine levels or other bad tastes & 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. Activated carbon also has many other useful purposes. For more on this, see www.h2ocare.com/bot/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.

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.
