Evaluating and Correcting Your Water Quality
Hard water is water that has high mineral content. Hard water minerals primarily consist of calcium, and magnesium, and sometimes other dissolved compounds such as bicarbonates and sulfates. Hard water is generally not harmful to one’s health. One of the negative effects of hard water is the toll it takes on home fixtures and appliances such as hot water tanks, bathroom sinks, toilets and tubs, increasing the need for repairs and replacement.
The best way to determine the hardness of your water is to bring in a sample and we can test it for you. After testing your water we can determine which water softener is best for you and your family.
Reverse osmosis (RO) has become a common method for the treatment of household drinking water supplies. RO treatment may be used to reduce the levels of:
- Naturally occurring substances that cause water supplies to be unhealthy or unappealing (foul tastes, smells or colors).
- Substances that have contaminated the water supply resulting in possible adverse health effects or decreased desirability.
