Bad taste & odor are commonly caused by chlorine, by-products of chorination, or decaying organic material. Filters to remove bad taste and musty odor address the presence of:

• Chlorine
• Chloramine
• Trihalomethanes (THM)
• Hydrogen sulfide
• Iron
• Bacteria & Viruses

  PROBLEM: Corrosive Water

Low pH (acidic water) is corrosive
Low pH (acidic water) is corrosive

The primary health risk of corrosive water is that it may release metals present in plumbing materials, such as lead, into drinking water.

Metal plumbing is more likely to corrode if the water has a low pH or high alkalinity.

Raise the pH of acidic water to neutralize corrosiveness and protect fixtures, pipes, and appliances.

  PROBLEM: Hard water

Lime buildup is difficult to remove
Lime buildup is difficult to remove

Hard water (dissolved calcium & magnesium) is a common problem for many homeowners and businesses. When hardness minerals are combined with heat, troublesome scale is formed. Scale causes costly build-up in your plumbing, water heater, and other water using appliances. When combined with soap, the minerals form soap curd or scum that makes skin dry and itchy, hair lifeless, laundry dull, and builds up on fixtures.

Hydrogen sulfide and sulfates are commonly found in well water.  Naturally occurring sulfate minerals in the soil can leach into groundwater over time. Hydrogen sulfide is a naturally occurring gas formed by the decay of organic matter; however, some bacteria can use sulfur as an energy source, and also produce hydrogen sulfide. Low oxygen concentrations in water and pH below 6.0 can worsen the problem.
