Here’s What Might Be in Your Water (That You Don’t Want in It!)

Monday, July 6th, 2020

water-testingWater isn’t just water. At least, not the water that comes from the taps in your house or into dishwashing and laundry machines. This water has different minerals and chemicals dissolved in it. Some aren’t harmful. Many others are, either for the health of the people who drink them or for the appliances and plumbing exposed to them.

We recommend looking into water filtration systems in Santa Barbara, CA to remove the unwanted chemicals, heavy metals, minerals, microbes, etc. that might dwell silently in your water supply. The best way to get started is to arrange for water testing services with us. We’ll be able to tell you exactly what’s in your water and how best we can remove it with filters, purifiers, etc.

How to Tell You Have Hard Water in Your Home

Monday, April 13th, 2020

water-softener-tankHard water is a common trouble for many homes in California. Water is considered “hard” when it has a higher concentration of minerals such as magnesium and calcium suspended it. Even the best water treatment plants can’t prevent hard water, since the minerals enter the freshwater supply through groundwater seepage that occurs after the water has left the municipal treatment plant.

Why is hard water a problem? It’s not harmful to drink; minerals like magnesium are found in many foods. The trouble hard water creates is for a household’s plumbing system, appliances, and some basic daily routines. If you believe your home has hard water, we recommend you call our water treatment specialists to arrange for them to install one of our water softener systems in Santa Barbara, CA.

But… how can you tell you need this service in the first place?

The Reverse Osmosis System: How It Helps Your Household Water

Monday, October 28th, 2019

boy-drinks-waterWe have bad news for you. The fresh water in your house—the water coming from the bathroom and kitchen faucets, the shower heads, the dishwasher—is low quality. Or at least there’s a high chance that it is. Chemicals, heavy metals, hard water minerals, pesticides, sulfur, and many other contaminants can easily find their way through ground water into the pipes carrying fresh water to your house. Corrosion inside old pipes can also release lead and other impurities.

You can find out for certain if you need a water treatment system in Carpinteria, CA with a call to our water quality experts. We will schedule your house for water testing. When we receive the results from the lab, we can provide a rundown of exactly what’s in your water and if there’s too much of it.
