Whether you use city water from the public works department or well water drawn from the Floridan aquifer, you can benefit from the whole house, no electricity water treatment that only Kinetico can provide.
Those who utilize well water will be very familiar with the typical problems found in Volusia County, including Ormond Beach and Daytona Beach; white residue left on dishes and fixtures, occasional bad smells or discolored water. This arises from the mineral content in the water from the Floridan aquifer.
excerpt from Florida Ground Water Report
Calcite dissolution reactions in shallow, well-developed flow systems account for the predominant CaHCO3 (Calcium bicarbonate ) water type. The CaHCO3 water type is dominant in Volusia County.
Hardness greater than 180 ppm is called very hard and is objectionable for most industrial and domestic uses. Many people in Florida use water having a hardness of from 200 to 400 ppm.

What are some tips for better water quality?
Calcium particles in the water are a common water quality complaint that we receive. If customers drain and flush out their hot water heaters on an annual basis, they can remove the majority of these calcium particles that accumulate in the bottom of the hot water tank, which cause faucet screens and shower heads to clog. It is also recommended you remove and clean showerheads and faucet screens periodically to reduce any calcium buildup that may occur. Running the faucet in the kitchen sink for approximately one minute each morning before consuming any water can substantially reduce the potential of any accumulation of lead and copper concentrations. Lead and copper can leach into the water from plumbing connections overnight when water is not being used.
What is added to my water?
Well water is chlorinated for disinfecting requirements to keep the distribution system safe from pathogenic bacteria. At three of our Water Treatment Plants, an orthophosphate chemical is added for lead and copper control and bio-purge chemical is added as a corrosion inhibitor.
Why does water need to be disinfected?
Disinfectants are required because they prevent the spread of germs that cause diseases. Years ago, before disinfectants were used for drinking water, diseases such as cholera, typhoid fever, and dysentery were common. Drinking water disinfection has vastly improved the quality and safety of drinking water.
Why does my water sometimes have a chlorine taste or smell?
Pursuant to state and federal laws, very small amounts of chlorine are added to your water as a disinfecting agent to protect you from disease-causing microorganisms. If you are bothered by the chlorine taste, keep an open pitcher of tap water in the refrigerator; the chlorine will dissipate rapidly if the water is allowed to sit. Water run first thing in the morning might have a chlorine smell. Chlorine is an oxidant and can react with household plumbing during periods of non-use. Running fresh water through the pipes usually solves the problem.
