Does your home’s water come from a well? It’s estimated that over 13 million homes rely on private wells for drinking water in the United States. One of the major downsides of this is that the EPA does not regulate or monitor water that comes from private wells. Private well owners are responsible for the quality of their own water.
Armstrong Comfort Solutions offers a suite of water-filtration products that ensure the well water being used in your home is safe and clean. We utilize industry leading and proven products from Pentair to design a solution ideally suited to your needs. Knowing where your water comes from and what types of contaminants it contains is an important part of designing the best solution for your home. Our trained technicians and Comfort Consultants will be able to guide you.
Regular water testing is the first step in ensuring that your home’s water is safe for use. The next step is a reliable water filtration system. Take, for instance, Pentair’s multiple filtration systems. Water can be filtered in a number of ways:
- Mechanical or Physical Filtration – Water passes through a physical barrier. Large contaminants and pieces of debris are caught by the filter.
- Chemical Filtration – This process involves water passing through an active chemical substance that removes unwanted materials.
- Reverse Osmosis – Pressure pushes water through a semipermeable membrane to remove contaminants.
The experts at Armstrong Comfort Solutions can assess your home’s water supply and create a plan that best fits your need. Sometimes, a combination of solutions can be created for the absolute best results. Think about a cabin in the woods. A sediment filter, combined with an iron and sulfur filter, and capped off with an active carbon filter, is an incredibly effective way of removing contaminants from the water. The sediment filter blocks large contaminants. The iron and sulfur filter helps with the smell and taste. The active carbon filter ensures that the water is safe for drinking and showering.
We take for granted that our water is safe. If you’d like to learn more about the water in your home, contact Armstrong Comfort Solutions.
