Do you Have Well Water in Edgewater, MD?
If so, you may be facing harsh iron, acidic water, radium, arsenic, and/or hard water issues.
Iron can cause serious headaches, staining clothes, appliances, fixtures, and pretty much anything else it comes in contact with! It can also make the water taste off; many associate it with the taste of a bloody nose. The iron in wells in Edgewater can range from very light (0.3 or less) to extreme (25+ ppm), with the presence of ferrous (clear water), ferric (oxidized / red) and organic/iron bacteria. This can make treating iron very challenging. It is very important to identify the types of iron and have a system designed to efficiently handle the different types of iron present.
Edgewater can also see p.H. that ranges from neutral to very acidic. Acidic water can wreak havoc on plumbing systems, causing pinhole leaks in plumbing lines and significantly shortening the life of water heaters and other water using appliances. There are several approaches to correcting p.H. and each has its pros and cons.
Radium is a radioactive nuclei that is known to cause increased incidence of bone, liver or breast cancer. Radium has been identified in some wells in the Edgewater peninsula. The EPA action level for treatment of radium is as little as a combined radium 226/228 level of 5 pCi/L.. Radium is also found in some wells in Edgewater.
Arsenic is a highly toxic, naturally occurring, element that is present in some wells in Edgewater. According to the EPA, “Exposure to lower levels of Arsenic can cause nausea and vomiting, decreased production of red and white blood cells, abnormal heart rhythm, damage to blood vessels, and a sensation of “pins and needles” in hands and feet. The EPA action level for arsenic in water is 0.010 ppm.”
What Impact Does Hard Water Have on Your Home?
Hard water or water with high levels of calcium and magnesium can cause:
Scale Build-Up in Pipes
When minerals like calcium and magnesium accumulate, they form scale deposits. These can clog your pipes and lead to slow drainage. Additionally, the chalky substance hard water produces can leave water spots on your dishes.
Dry Hair and Skin
Limescale accumulation doesn’t only affect your pipes. Hard water prevents soap from dissolving properly, and the residue it leaves behind remains on your skin. This can cause itchy, irritated skin and dull, dried-out hair. With a water softener in Edgewater, MD, homeowners can eliminate this issue.
Higher Bills and Appliance Malfunctions
Have your utility bills increased unexpectedly? When mineral deposits build up in your appliances, they can wreak havoc. Any water-using systems in your home will have to work twice as hard to produce the same result. Using more energy will lead to higher costs. Ultimately, this also means you’ll have to service the equipment and have it replaced more often.
Scratchy and Faded Clothing
When you take a load of laundry out of the washer, you expect it to be clean and fresh. Unfortunately, hard water can make your clothing appear unwashed, dull, and dingy. Our water softeners in Edgewater, MD resolve the problem quickly and improve the feel of your clothes.
