Local Water Quality Concerns in Northeast Georgia
According to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, the average adult should consume 2.7 to 3.7 liters of clean water daily for adequate hydration, depending on age and gender. However, if your home or community suffers from poor water quality, it may be difficult to meet this requirement. Although our area has moderately soft water, it contains various contaminants, including metals and industrial pollutants. Chlorine and chemicals used to eliminate harmful microbes also affect the taste and smell of your tap water. Consumer confidence reports show that the following contaminants are common in the local area.
- Chloroacetic acids
- Haloacetic acids
- Hexavalent chromium
- Nitrate and nitrite
Water Filtration Solutions
Water filtration systems are ideal for removing dissolved solids, sediment, and chemicals that affect the taste, clarity, and smell of your tap water. We install multistage reverse osmosis filters that produce anywhere from 300 to 1,500 gallons of clean water daily. Customers can choose from budget-friendly point-of-use models that are perfect for a kitchen or bathroom and high-capacity whole-home systems that treat all incoming water for household-wide benefits.
Most systems use a pre-filter to remove large particles. Then, a specially designed membrane with microscopic pores filters the water and removes all contaminants. Many systems re-mineralize the water for improved taste and health reasons.
Whole-House Water Treatment Systems
Reverse osmosis water filters also function as water softeners since they remove excess minerals that cause lime-scale and water spots. If hard water is a problem in your area, we can suggest an electro-magnetic or ion-exchange water softer. These systems neutralize excess minerals electronically or replace calcium and magnesium with harmless potassium or sodium ions.
Water treatment systems help your washing machine and dishwasher work better by increasing the cleaning power of soaps and detergents, and they leave your skin, hair, and clothing feeling softer. We offer various water treatment systems designed to protect your plumbing from wear and tear while helping your appliances last years longer.
