symptoms of water problems in your home

It can be difficult to tell if your water is in need of treatment, but there are signs you can watch for to understand the quality of your water. If your home uses public water, your water supply should meet all SDWA regulations, though it is possible that you may still be able to improve its quality. For homes relying on well water, however, it is especially critical to monitor your water and ensure that it is safe and convenient. Below are some signs that your water requires further treatment.

Signs of Inadequately Treated Water:

  • Water spots or foggy glassware after washing
  • Dry or irritated skin after showering
  • Brittle or dull hair
  • Cloudy water or an odd taste or smell
  • Plumbing fixtures show mineral build-up
  • Water has a sandy texture or has noticeable sediment
  • Frequent illness or stomach issues after drinking the water

Common Water Issues

The problems you may encounter with your water can vary greatly, depending on the source of your water. Different water sources and uses for your water may require different treatment methods. Here are some of the most frequently treated issues.

Municipal Water Issues:

  • Disinfectants (chlorine, ammonia, chloramines)
  • Contaminants ( industrial waste, agriculture runoff, chemicals)
  • Hard water
  • Bacteria

Well Water Issues:

  • Acidic Water (pH)
  • Hard water
  • Ferrous Iron
  • Nitrates
  • Bacteria

Solutions to Your Water Issues

Depending on the condition of your water, our water treatment professionals may recommend a single solution or combination of treatments to ensure that your water remains crystal clear and safe to use. We offer a variety of treatment services to protect your home’s water.

Water Filtration

Our water filtration services rely on the topwater filtration systems, which are a whole-home, maintenance-free system. These cutting-edge filtration systems use five stages of filtration and conditioning to clean a variety of contaminants out of your water, leaving it clean enough for any use. These systems are perfect for those who use municipal water or who rely on a well. Additionally, we can prevent bacteria from circulating through your water supply with the Viqua UV light, an advanced UV light sanitation system.

Water Softening

Water is classified as “hard” or “soft” based on the presence of calcium and magnesium. Form the health standpoint, these minerals should have no adverse effects if they are present in your water, since each is a necessary daily nutrient. Soft water, or water lacking these minerals, can be more convenient. Soft water doesn’t leave a film or build up on dishes, clothing, fixtures, and skin the way hard water can. Our water softening treatments use the advanced ion exchange technology of SoftMAX water softening systems to remove calcium and magnesium from your water. For those using well water, this can eliminate hard water deposits and build up. We also use FerroMAX and NitroMAX to remove ferrous iron and nitrates from your water, if necessary. Our water treatment professionals also rely on the Reionator Pro Ultra system, which can address hard water, contaminants, bacteria, and more!

Reverse Osmosis

For crystal clear drinking water, you simply can’t beat reverse osmosis filtration. Reverse osmosis can remove up to 99% of dissolved salts, particles, organics, bacteria, and other contaminants from your water, leaving it fresh-tasting and perfectly clean. We use a 6-stage reverse osmosis system with an Ayer’s Rock Alkaline Filter for superior filtration results and an exceptional tasting result.
