When you call us for testing, we’ll take a much closer look at the water supply and determine if it is home to any specific contaminants. Different water treatment systems can deal with water hardness, low pH balance, high iron levels, bacteria, nitrates, sulfates, arsenic, and any other debris or sediment build up that come through your pipes.

Water filters are among the most common and are designed primarily to remove small contaminants. There are a variety of options from simple filters attached to your faucets to a full house filter that is placed at your main water line.
However, if you have chemical problems and need more extensive treatment, another type of treatment may be required. Hard water can be softened to protect against damage to your fixtures and pipes while reverse osmosis is used as a supplement to remove excess salinity or treat particularly unsafe water for drinking.

Cartridge based water treatment is highly effective, but must be monitored continuously to ensure the treatment levels are maintained.
