Well Water Treatment

Pure Water Systems can identify well water issues and determine how often your well water should be tested. Typically, we advise  testing well water yearly for coliform bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids, and pH levels with additional testing every two to three years for tannins, hardness, chloride, sulfate, alkalinity, iron, and copper.

Certain symptoms of problem water are obvious – poor taste, bad smell, cloudy appearance, residue, and hard water stains. But other aspects of problem water don’t necessarily make themselves known – arsenic, copper, lead, E.coli, chromium 6, and other microscopic bacteria – which is why it’s important to have your well water tested regularly.

Our technicians can perform an in-home water test to retrieve insights about your water quality. Once your water has been appropriately analyzed, we will discuss the results and recommend the right water treatment solution for your home. 

Determining the Best Well Water Filtration System for Your Needs

Based on what the analysis of your well water concludes, you may want to consider a few possible solutions. 

For starters, a Whole Home Filtration system may be necessary. These systems filter water at the point of entry, providing cleaner well water to all taps in your house. By removing components such as iron, chlorine, sulfur and more, these systems can help limit issues such as unpleasant tastes and odors as well as staining in tubs and sinks. Many of these well water filtration systems will employ a pre-filtering stage that removes sediment, an activated carbon stage and a post-filtering phase. The carbon stage minimizes the presence of chlorine and chloramines, while the post-filtering phase removes leftover sediment.

Drinking Water Filtration Systems installed at the point of use, such as under the kitchen sink, provide additional support for cleaner, better-tasting water for drinking and cooking. These systems often use a process known as reverse osmosis, which can remove up to 99% of contaminants commonly found in tap water.  

Pure Water Systems has been designing and installing well water systems for our customers for 70 years.  We are from here and we know the water.
