Water Treatment & Filtration

Well water treatment and filtration keeps your water clean and clear

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 different water treatments to address specific concerns.

Water treatment systems can be categorized as point-of-entry and point-of-use. Point-of-entry systems treat the water as it enters your home. Point-of-use systems treat water as needed in batches at a specific location, like a kitchen or bathroom sink.

Easterday-Wilson Water Services offers professional installation and maintenance of well water treatment and filtration services.

Water softeners 

A water softener system is used to reduce 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.”

Benefits of a water softener system:

  • Makes your hair and skin, and clothes softer. You’ll feel cleaner, and your clothes will last longer
  • Extends the life of your appliances. Chemical and residue buildup is decreased and appliances use less energy
  • Stain-free clothes and surfaces. Also, soap and detergents will be more effective; making cleaning easier

Filtration systems 

A water filtration system removes impurities from water by using a physical barrier, or a chemical or biological process.
