Water Pressure

Water pressure issues are very common. It ranges from variable pressure speeds, no or low water pressure, no control over pressure or having a low yielding wells. We offer a constant pressure system as well as clean water storage tanks, pressure booster pumps, different size pressure tanks and other pressure control systems. If you are facing low pressure or no water call right away! We have a 7 day a week, 365 days a year, emergency service team ready to restore water to the home. Sometimes low water pressure is initiated by something as small as a clogged sediment filter.

Hard Water

Installation of a Chemical Feeder Pump and Solution Tank for pH and corrosion control, a Water Softener and Brine Tank for hard water and a Whole House Sediment Filter.

Hard Water is the total dissolved solids found in ground water. It can cause dryness in the skin and hair, create buildup in your pipes, spots and staining on dishes, clothing and appliances. Solids in the water may also be harmful to your family and pets health. A Water Softener uses a process called ion exchange. A specific resin is added to the tank that eliminates dissolved minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, and manganese. A Softener uses a brine or salt tank to clean the resin. We offer several water softener systems that ranges in price, size and function. In a home with low pH, a water softener is often paired with an acid neutralizer to raise the pH from an acidic level to neutral.

Acidic Water

Acidic Water causes corrosion, staining, leeching, spots, and may shorten the lifespan of your appliances and pipes. Acidic water leaches lead out of your pipes and appliances and enters your water supply. Lead in water is very harmful to your health, especially among young children and pregnant women. Acid Neutralizer and Chemical Feeder are Water Treatment systems that will raise your pH, eliminating your acidic water and prevent corrosion and lead leaching!

Maintenance

Yearly maintenance will extend the lifespan of water equipment. We also offer a lifetime warranty if the customer services with our company annually. Each service appointment our technicians checks to see if the equipment is working properly, fix or replace anything if needed, such as adding more media to a tank, replacing any sediment or Reverse Osmosis filters, UV bulbs, o-rings, salt and more. We will also test the water before and after every service to ensure your water treatment is functioning properly. Customer Service is always our #1 priority!

In Conclusion

Well water provides the end user, you, the homeowner, with the freedom and flexibility of choice. While well water, for the most part, does need some type of treatment, it comes without the added city water contaminants and chemicals such as chlorine, fluoride, Trihalomethanes (THMs), nitrates and more. Most people are unaware that homes on city water may need water treatment to remove these harmful contaminants. City water quality guidelines vary county by county. EWG provides city water contamination information based on your zip code. You may be surprised at what is in your city water. Like city water, well water may vary in quality and water volume but unlike local water systems, it is direct ground water, which does not go through chemical filtering before consumption. The natural state of the well water, great taste, environmental friendliness, and purity are benefits of well water. Well Water also provides the home owner with the freedom to install water treatment and purification systems specific to their wants and needs.
