Why Massachusetts’ Homes Need Water Filtration
More than 400,000 homes in Massachusetts source their water from private wells. If you don’t live in an area that provides communally sourced water, you are likely on a well and any responsibility for water treatment is left entirely up to you as the homeowner.
If you didn’t test your water when purchasing the home or don’t currently have a whole-home filtration system, you may be exposing yourself to harmful contaminants such as radon or arsenic, many of which are odorless and tasteless and can only be detected through a water quality test. Thankfully, a properly designed water filtration system can virtually eliminate or reduce to safe levels almost all contaminants found in your water.
Hard water can also wreak havoc on your plumbing system, which is why Heritage also provides water softener installation services.
