The quality of your home’s water is important to the health and safety of you and your family. Water is so important to us that sometimes we take it for granted! We assume that water will always be there and safe for us to drink without worry of contaminants or pollutants getting into our system. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

Every day families are drinking unsafe water, leading to illness in some cases. The best way to protect your family from these issues is with water treatment and filtration services, and we have a full breakdown for you. 

The Concerns

In the U.S., it is estimated that up to 20% of homes don’t have safe drinking water, and more than 6 million Americans become sick from unsafe tap water each year. To avoid these risks, make sure you protect your family by investing in water treatment systems according to your well water’s issues. 

There are several different options for the treatment of your well water. No single treatment type protects against all issues, and many well users utilize other water treatments to address specific concerns.

Water Softeners

A water softener system reduces the “hardness,” or amount of minerals in the water. A water softener typically uses sodium or potassium ions to replace calcium and magnesium ions, which creates the “hardness.” Not only do they provide safe drinking water, but they can also help make your hair, skin, and clothes softer. And, you can help extend the life of your appliances, as there will be a decrease in chemical and residue buildup. 

Filtration Systems

A water filtration system removes impurities from water by using a physical barrier or a chemical or biological process. There are a few different types of filtration systems to choose from, all depending on the contaminants in your water. 

For example, our team would recommend our ultrafiltration option when dealing with bacteria or sediment. For strange or bad-smelling odors in your water, a carbon filter would be recommended. Easterday-Wilson can determine which common contaminants are in your well water and recommend a system that eliminates distracting smells, stains, and tastes.
