Q: Which filter system is best for my water?
Ion Exchange Resin used in most water conditioners to remove dissolved iron, magnesium and calium from the water. These are tiny beads that catch and hold the iron until the system is set to clean itself out flushing away the iron to the drain.
Birm is an efficient and economical method of removing dissolved iron and manganese compounds where ample dissolved oxygen is present in the water.
Activated Carbon Filters are used to reduce objectional tastes and odors, chlorine, organics, color and tannin from water. Activated Carbon requires only periodic backwashing to eliminate accumulated suspended matter and to re-grade the filter bed.
Neutralizing Filters are used where low pH is a problem. Acidic water on contact with the neutralizing media will raise pH which reduces the potential leaching of copper, lead and other metals found in typical plumbing systems. Depending on the pH and service flow, the neutralizing media will have to be periodically added to as the dissolved media depletes.
Q: How will I benefit from a water treatment system?
> Saves on soaps and shampoos
> Clothes will be brighter and last longer
> Prevents scale build-up in pipes, fixtures and appliances
> Extends the life of hot water heating
Bacteria can be introduced into your water supply in a variety of ways. One common entry point is through your well cap. Another can be from any work that is performed on your well or household plumbing. A simple service repair may have possibly introduced bacteria organisms into your system requiring a thorough disinfecting. Chlorinating or disinfecting your water supply is a common, inexpensive and fairly routine maintenance procedure that takes approximately 5-7 days to complete.
