Water Treatment Services in Maryland
Having constant access to clean and safe water is so important, and mankind’s strive for this goal has been perhaps one of, if not the, greatest achievements of all time. It’s vital that you and your family have access to water, just as it’s vital that water is clean and pure. Over time, different contaminants can enter the ground, and in turn your water system. At Michael Runk Plumbing and Heating, we offer our water treatment services to Carroll County, Frederick County, Baltimore County, Howard County, and most of Maryland.
How Do I Know If I’m Having an Issue With My Water?
Have you been noticing a different taste or color to your water? If so, then it’s highly likely that some contaminants are entering your system at some point. We recommend you get into contact with a reliable water treatment company as soon as possible, as the consumption of/ exposure to this contaminated water could lead to health problems for you and your family.
Different contaminants will affect your water and you differently, so no two contaminations are the same. If your water has changed, you need to have it tested by an experienced water treatment service provider in your area. Our company offers tests, and all of our water treatment services, throughout most areas in Maryland.
Two Main Water Quality Problems
For the most part, contaminants fall into two different categories, hard water and acidic water. Both can cause health issues, and both have unique signs that point to the identity of the contaminant. Here’s a brief explanation of both.
Water that is rich in minerals like calcium, magnesium carbonate, iron, aluminum, sediments, and manganese. It can also carry bacteria that can harm you or your loved ones. Some common signs of hard water include:
- Skin irritations
- Clogging of pipes
- Shower problems
- Malfunctioning of appliances
- Excess soap scum
- Stains and grease in your bathroom
- Bad taste or smell
Water that is lower on the pH scale. Usually not harmful to your health, but can corrode and damage your home and water system. Common acidic water indicators include:
- Bad taste
- Low water pressure
- Rust stains on pipes or faucets
- Blue and green stains in your sink or tub
- Pinhole leaks
Our Water Conditioning Treatment Options
If you’re having an issue with your water system, you’ll need to have it diagnosed and treated by a professional water treatment company. Here are all of the different services we can provide:
We typically use acid neutralizer to reduce the acidity level in your water, and mix it with water softener to reduce the hardness of your water.
Water softeners are used to help with hard water issues. We offer high-quality water softener systems that can improve your system’s performance.
These filters remove sediments from your water supply, and should be regularly replaced.
These systems remove bacteria from your water system, with most being able to remove up to 99.9% of harmful microorganisms.
Constant Pressure Systems
Constant pressure systems work alongside your well pump to provide you with a reliable and continuous source of water.
