Why Your Home Needs a Water Filtration System

In New Hampshire, 46% of homeowners source their water from a private well. This is so commonplace that many of us don’t give it a second thought when purchasing a home, but the reality is that just because water is already coming into the home, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be treated. As a private well owner, you are responsible for the quality and safety of the water entering your home.

Common contaminants naturally occurring here in New Hampshire like arsenic or radon are tasteless and odorless, and not only pose a threat to your health when drunk but can also lead to exposure through things like washed food and clothing. This is why Heritage always recommends to our customers whole-home filtration as opposed to any other method when possible. Thankfully, most of these water contaminants can be eliminated if not reduced to a safe level through a properly installed whole-home filtration system.

Water Filtration Services in New Hampshire

With our dedicated well and water quality team, Heritage is ready to serve you through professional water quality testing, installation, repair, or routine maintenance. We’ll identify any problems with your water, suggest improvements, and ensure you never have to think about your water quality again.

Installation Services

The best way to mitigate water contamination is by installing the right equipment for your home and water needs. Depending on the contaminants found during your water quality test, installing whole-home filtration equipment like multi-stage sand or carbon filtration, or even a reverse osmosis system, can all help to virtually eliminate or bring to a safe level contaminants like arsenic, radon, nitrate, and even uranium. UV light filtration systems are also available which use a chemical-free process to remove harmful bacteria like e-coli, which can be found in some water sources.

Our well and water quality team will provide you with a complete assessment of your water quality, present you with a customized solution for your home, and let you make the decision that’s right for your home.

With stock on hand for the most common types of treatment systems, we can have a custom designed system installed in your home in as little as one day!

Some examples of the types of filtration systems we provide:

  • Multi-stage sand or carbon filtration
  • Acid neutralizers
  • Iron removal systems

Repair and Maintenance Services

Whole-home water filtration systems are excellent at ensuring the water you use each day is safe, so long as they are properly maintained.

Some tasks can be performed by the homeowner such as swapping water filters, but if you are experiencing issues with your current system or have something you’re not comfortable keeping up with yourself, Heritage provides repair and annual maintenance services on most residential water filtration systems.

New Hampshire Water Quality Testing Services

Ensuring that you have access to safe, clean water starts with water testing! The EPA states homeowners should have their water tested annually to ensure that any treatment system installed in the home have you covered.

We can conduct a test on most in-home visits with one of our licensed plumbers. These will give results same-day for things like mineral content, hardness, pH, alkalinity, and more. A lab test can also be ordered which takes about 2-weeks. This will give you more in depth information about your water quality and will be emailed directly to you from the lab. One of our Heritage water quality experts will then discuss your results with you and give options on how to proceed.

Water Quality Issues We Test For:

  • Water Hardness: The high calcium content in hard water reacts with soap to create soap scum, making it harder to get your skin, hair, and dishes clean. When hard water is heated, solid deposits of calcium carbonate can form. This scale can reduce the life of equipment, lower the efficiency of water heaters, and clog pipes.
  • Low pH & Alkalinity: When pH is low, your household plumbing pipes may leach copper into the water causing green stains on bathroom sinks and porcelain surfaces
  • Iron: High iron makes drinking water, coffee, and teas taste metallic. Iron can also leave stains on fabrics and fixtures such as sinks and toilets, and it can build up inside your pipes.
  • Manganese: At concentrations greater than 0.05 milligrams per liter (mg/L), manganese may cause a noticeable color, odor, or taste in water. Water with a manganese concentration greater than 0.3 mg/L is considered dangerous can result in manganese toxicity.
  • Radon: When water that contains radon is used for showering, washing dishes, and cooking, radon gas escapes from the water and goes into the air. This can damage lung tissue and increase your chances of developing lung cancer over the course of your lifetime.
  • Arsenic: Low levels of arsenic in drinking water, soil, air, and food pose a health risk over time. Arsenic health effects include diseases that can affect the cardiovascular system, kidneys, skin, nervous system, or lead to various forms of cancer.
  • Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA): Perfluorochemicals (PFCs) are a group of chemicals used to make fluoropolymer coatings and products that resist heat, oil, stains, grease, and water. The human health effects from exposure to low environmental levels of PFOA are unknown. In laboratory animals given large amounts, PFOA can affect growth and development, reproduction, and injure the liver.
