Water Quality Problems

Water Quality Problems-Symptoms-Recommended Equipment

Hardness-Mineral deposits on dishes and glassware; stiff, dingy laundry; high soap usage and need for

bathtubs and shower stalls; high energy costs due to scale build-up in pipes and on appliances-Water Softener.

Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) are the total amount of mobile charged ions, including minerals, salts or metals dissolved in a given volume of water, expressed in units of mg per unit volume of water (mg/L), also referred to as parts per million (ppm). TDS is directly related to the purity of water and the quality of water purification systems and affects everything that consumes, lives in, or uses water, whether organic or inorganic, whether for better or for worse.

The continuous water cycle

Nature intended us to have high-quality water. This is why we have the continuous water cycle, whereby water from our oceans, rivers, lakes and streams falls to the ground as rain or snow and becomes filtered as it seeps through the earth’s surface. As the water works its way through the ground it picks up minerals by dissolving limestone, causing water hardness. Water may also come into contact with Iron, Manganese, Arsenic and other contaminants, which cause additional water treatment problems. The chart below lists typical whole house water quality problems and indicates which equipment effectively corrects any problems you may have in your home.
