Are you having home water quality problems? At times, incoming water supply does not meet expectations.

But what kind of water treatment services should you use? We’re here to tell you.

Water Treatment Services

If you have city water…

The United States has one of the safest water supplies in the world, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and there are over 286 billion Americans who use community water. While the The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates the quality of the water, it’s still a homeowner’s responsibility to monitor their water for contamination. There are many treatments that can be used for both city and well water. A few available services that are most suited for possible city water issues include tank softeners, odor reduction units and disinfecting methods. C&J’s single and twin tank softeners will guarantee fresh, pure water that won’t leave those hard-to-remove hard water stains on your household utilities.

If you have well water…

Over 15 million U.S. households rely on a private well for water consumption, according to the CDC. Since you do not get your water from a public source, it’s your responsibility to keep it safe. For this reason, testing your water more regularly is highly recommended. Depending on your treatment needs, there are specific water softener systems, filtration systems and cleaning methods for private water. C&J’s Reverse Osmosis is a common water treatment service for the regular use and consumption of water year-round. This process eliminates dissolved solids, sodium, nitrates, lead and some types of arsenic. Water Softener Systems, Well Cleaning, Ultraviolet Disinfection, Iron Filters, Sediment Filters, Sand Filters and Chlorine Injections are other well water treatments that C&J offers.

Another rule of thumb for well water– Once a year, it’s necessary to have your water quality tested for bacteria, nitrates, dissolved solids and the pH levels. It’s also important to test the water more frequently while pregnant and if there is an infant in the household. The EPA details frequent activities that could affect the quality of your well water and the chemicals to test for. Common examples include testing for iron and manganese if you recently treated your water softener for hardness, or testing for nitrate, pesticides and coliform bacteria if there are agricultural activities nearby. Now, let C&J Well Co. do the dirty work. C&J can troubleshoot your water quality, determine the issue and provide a solution with our well water treatment services.

No matter the type of water you have running throughout your household, it’s important to stay up-to-date with testing and treating. Trust your senses when it comes to look and smell, but also be aware that poor quality water can also look normal.
