Well Water is No Match for Kinetico
Well water comes with its own set of challenges. Unlike city water, well water is produced from the water source it’s tapped into. The source may contain several contaminants and impurities, many of which you may not be able to see or taste.
The most common well water issue is hard water. Hard water contains high amounts of calcium and magnesium, creating harsher, more debilitating conditions for your appliances, fixtures, and may even affect your skin and hair.
Another common well water issue is sulfur. Sulfur produces a foul odor, commonly referred to as the Rotten Egg smell.
The most effective way to delve into your water concerns is to test your home or business’ water. Kwater offers free, no obligation water analysis. Once you schedule an appointment, our Water Specialists will test your well water and identify your concerns and determine a solution.
Discover Well Water Solutions from Kinetico
Kinetico offers two types of well water solutions. Each solution result in crisp, clean water but target different areas of concern. If you’d like to improve your well water, Kwater recommends treatment options including Whole House Reverse Osmosis and Water Softener systems.
Water softeners treat hard water, meaning that your home or business’ water is considered mineral heavy. A buildup of minerals affect hair, skin, and even laundry. Hard water doesn’t allow soap or detergent to properly dissolve, leaving a frustrating, soapy residue on appliances.
So, how do water softeners really work? Essentially, water softeners trade mineral ions, resulting in what’s referred to as an “ion exchange”. In order to do this, the tank is filled with salt-coated resin beads. The beads flow through the tank and affect the mineral cased on positive and negative charges.
Whole House Reverse Osmosis (also known as RO) takes a different route to tackle water impurities. RO systems go directly to the source, using osmosis to remove minerals and other dissolved solids from your water.
To achieve this, the water is pushed through a semipermeable membrane. Think of it like a filter; the water passes through, leaving behind the contaminants such as lead, detergents and soaps, nitrates, sulfates, chlorine, chloramine, fluoride, pesticides, and more.
