Jason’s Water Systems prides itself designing systems to treat municipal and well water alike. Although we pride ourselves on having the finest HI FLOW systems on the market with up to 400,000 gallons of chlorine removal in 1 tank, sometimes that is not enough.
When certain minerals like hydrogen sulfite, or sulfur, as well as chlorine, build up in well water, it can result in water that smells like rotten eggs and tastes like a swimming pool. This unpleasant rotten egg odor has a tendency to stick to hair after bathing, and clothing after washing, which can lead to this unpleasant odor leaving the house with you. Along with the nasty smell and taste, a high concentration of these minerals within the water can increase the pace of metal corrosion in pipes, faucets, and other water-using fixtures.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), there are over 12 million cases of gastrointestinal illness from U.S drinking water each year. Well water can contain disease-causing viruses, bacteria, and parasites like E. coli, giardia lamblia as well as shigella sonnet which are both known for causing various illnesses and other conditions. When well water is not properly filtered and softened, these bacteria and microorganisms can make their way into your water which can have the potential to harm you and your family.
If you’ve experienced iron stains, you know how much of a hassle it can be to remove them from fixtures, sinks, toilets, tubs, and other appliances that use water. When these iron stains show up in the bathroom in areas like sinks and showers, it will look unattractive and unsanitary. Similar to how hard water can lead to clogged piping, excess iron can also cause mineral and limescale build-up which will eventually clog pipes as well. With well water units from Jason’s Water, iron particles are removed to prevent excessive mineral build-up.
Hard Water results in scaling, or a build-up of minerals like calcium and magnesium which can clog pipes. When hard water builds up in appliances like dishwashers, water heaters and washing machines, it can ruin them entirely. Additionally, the minerals in hard water can dry out skin and hair which leads to itchiness and discomfort. Soft water allows you to have spot-free dishes and delicious drinking water right from the taps of your sink, shower, or anything else that uses water.
