If you have city water or well water, we can test your incoming water supply and let you know what equipment you need to remove the contaminants in that supply.

Contaminants can be found in both city water and well water but, both have specific requirements for removing the contaminants. City water, although treated by your local municipality, can still contain harmful contaminants that should be removed. Well water tends to be hard and in a lot of cases may contain iron, tannins, and in some cases, Hydrogen Sulfide (rotten egg smell) or may be susceptible to bacterial contaminants especially, if the well is located in an agricultural area. All contaminants can be removed from the water supply with the proper filtration components.

More and more, people are really starting to wake up in regards to the quality of the water entering their home, place of business and their bodies. Now people are actually disconnecting from municipal water sources and going back to private wells because of all the contaminants in the municipal source water. Well water will usually have one or two contaminants that need to be dealt with while, municipal water may have hundreds of contaminates. Our overburdened municipalities do the best they can to deliver a quality product, however, our infrastructure is in need of serious attention. Case in point, Flint Michigan. Flint is not an isolated case. There are infrastructure problems are all over the United States; you just don’t hear about them because, your nightly news would be nothing but water issues and that would be rather boring.

Among all the contaminants on the list list which, happen to come down the pipeline; Fluoride is one of the biggest municipal induced contaminants people want to get away from. Fluoride removal requires a special, expensive, media and for those wanting to get away from fluoride, drilling a well and putting in the necessary filtration to deal with the well conditions, is sometimes, a more cost effective, long term solution, for many people. People who want to stay on their municipal water source and are not concerned about fluoride, can filter out up to 98% of fluoride and all the other known contaminates inexpensively with an R/O system. R/o filter systems are great for drinking water but are expensive at filtering your entire home or business. Fluoride removal media cannot be regenerated so, the best approach is to use an in/out filter setup that can be rebed every year.

Our number one priority is to save the customer money and we look at water filtration a bit differently than other companies. For example, did you know it is more economical in the long run to filter the entire building over putting in a small, inadequate r/o filter under the sink for drinking water? Why do we say inadequate? Well, most people have been told the filters will last up to a year before needing to be replaced; this is simply not true. For the exception of the r/o membrane itself, all other filters should be replaced every month due to depletion, bacterial and spore growth. Most people however, don’t or won’t change the filters or let someone change them and will let it go well beyond a years time due to the expense. Some companies charge $199.00 to come out and change the filters in a small r/o filter system.

When you treat the entire house, you know you are good for a year and in some cases longer because the system is easy to monitor and test. When you can draw test samples after each filtration unit, you know exactly when the filter media is exhausted and needing to be replaced and at an expense far less than properly maintaining a small r/o system. Plus when you filter the entire structure, you not only have clean drinking water, you also have clean bathing water.

So, what is the best approach to filtering the water in your entire home? Well, it depends on whether you are on city or well water; as the size of the filters needed may need to be sized differently, for both situations. As a rule of thumb, the top four things which. may need to be filtered or killed out of the water supply are, Sediment, Chemicals, Minerals and Bacterial contaminants and knowing which, contaminant to filter or kill first is determined by the water test.
