Water Treatment Q&A
Hard water is caused by dissolved minerals, calcium and magnesium in your water. These minerals will build up deposits on critical plumbing components through normal use of the plumbing, resulting in restricted water flow and less efficient heating of water. Hard water will also negatively affect surfaces when used to clean, showing up as ugly spots and haze on your beautiful glassware and blocking soaps and detergents from being effective. Thousands of homeowners choose to have a professional water softener system installed for the following reasons:
o Prevent costly scale build up in pipes, faucets & showerheads
o Avoid premature failure of water heaters & other water using appliances.
o Lower water heating costs by 30%.
o Easier cleaning and sparkling glassware
o Use 50% less soap
o Cleaner & brighter laundry
Your water softener can remove the hardness (calcium & magnesium) from your water and chlorine filtration can remove most of the chlorine and treatment chemicals from your home's water, making your water safe to bathe in and cook with. However, there are a few more things to consider when it comes to your drinking water specifically. Harmful bacteria, fluoride, pharmaceuticals, and other toxic particles can make their way past these filters and into your body when you drink this water. Reverse Osmosis filtration systems have several pre-filters that lead into a reverse osmosis membrane that traps impurities as small as an atom, flushing the additional impurities to the drain and allowing only clean water to pass through. This is why we recommend a point of use RO system at the kitchen sink to work in unison with the additional water treatment equipment in your home. This RO system will give you absolutely perfect water for drinking, cooking, making coffee, tea, and ice. It easily pays for itself by cutting out the need to purchase bottled water
· Municipalities use disinfectants to remove bacteria from water, but these disinfectants are often harmful to consume in the long run. It is important to remove these disinfectants (such as chlorine) with a professional water treatment system before consuming city water. City water often has a lot of hardness (dissolved calcium and magnesium) in it as well. These disinfectants and hardness are detrimental to plumbing piping and components. Poor water quality is actually the underlying cause to a vast majority of plumbing failures.
· City water also has some impurities in it such as harmful bacteria, fluoride, pharmaceuticals, and other toxic particles that cannot be removed by standard filtration like softeners and chlorine filters. These particles are not a big deal to remove before using the water for cleaning purposes, but it is very important to remove them before drinking the water. Point of use RO systems are the best way to filter the water down to the atomic level and remove everything that might be a problem to consume.
· Better than bottled water, right at your kitchen faucet.
· No lugging and storing heavy water bottles. Save money.
· Perfect for drinking, cooking, juice, coffee, tea, ice.
· Protection from approximately 700 boil advisories per day *US EPA, AWWA
In America, we enjoy some of the safest water in the world. Our water is safe from bacteria because of the disinfectants our municipalities use to kill bacteria when treating the water. However, these disinfectants (chlorine and other chemicals) need to be removed from your water before consuming it. You certainly do not want to be bathing and cooking with disinfectants, let alone drinking it! The chlorine and other disinfecting chemicals (such as chloramines) used to treat city water are corrosive by nature and will break down rubber and metal components found in all plumbing, causing failed piping and leaking plumbing fixtures. If you have chlorine and these other chemicals in your water, you should consider investing in professional water treatment equipment that can save you thousands in repairs, as well as make your water considerably safer to consume.
If your home is on well water, you need to have it tested for sediment and hardness, but you also need to have a water sample sent to a lab to test for bacteria. Depending on the region you live in, most well water has a high level of hardness in it, which needs to be removed to prevent your plumbing from breaking down and crusting over. It is highly recommended that all wells be treated with Ultraviolet Light filters to kill any bacteria present in the water. Well water that is free of bacteria one day may become infected another day, and you want that UV system there to eliminate that bacteria no matter what, so your family does not become ill. The other most common issues found in well water are iron and sulfur. Sulfur can be detected in water because it makes it smell like rotten eggs. Iron usually manifests itself as nasty staining in toilet bowls and sinks. These problems can both be treated very successfully. In short, each well system needs to be treated differently, depending on the water test results. If you are on a well, get a professional water test so that you don't have to deal with the frustrations and safety issues that can be present with well water.
It is important to note that water treatment systems have widely varying costs depending on your region and the quality of your water. The layout of your home and its piping also plays a huge factor in the manpower & materials required to install a new water treatment system. Although it is unpopular in our industry to do this, we want to give you some average price ranges that our company sees, excluding outlier situations in which treatment options are exponentially higher.
