Installing Water Treatment

Foul taste, smell, or color of your household water may prompt you to investigate water treatment equipment. The publicity about water pollution problems may cause you to question the safety of your water supply. Or mineral scale buildup may cause you to invest in early replacement of plumbing fixtures and water-using appliances.
First have your water analyzed. A water analysis will help identify bacteria, minerals, or other pollutants that are present. Interpretation of the test results will help you determine whether the water needs to be treated and, if so, the type of treatment needed.

Keep in mind that no single water treatment device treats all problems, and that all devices have limitations. Common water quality problems and suggested corrective procedures are described in the following table.

Do not assume that installation of water treatment equipment similar to that of your neighbors will be the answer to improving your household water quality. Different water supply sources, amounts and types of household uses, and many other variables affect the selection of the proper water treatment system.

We hope this information is clear and useful to you. If you have any further questions, please call or visit us on the web.
