Sediment removal may be necessary to protect your home’s plumbing and appliances.
It is not unusual for well water, in particular, to have a significant amount of sediment. When you consider that a typical well is bored hundreds of feet through dirt and rock, it stands to reason that some of that can find its way into the pump and up into your home in Durham, North Carolina or the surrounding area. Without a filtration system designed for sediment removal, these particles can plug faucets and shower heads, ruin appliances, destroy your water heater, and make your water taste less than pleasant. A well that isn’t currently experiencing sediment issues can change literally overnight. The underground aquifer can change suddenly, and so can your water quality. All wells should have a sediment filter so your plumbing fixtures and appliances are protected.
At Progressive Water Solutions LLC, we offer sediment removal solutions if our complimentary water testing and inspection of your toilets and water heater indicates that you have sediment issues. We’ll also determine the characteristics of the sediment you have, such as its micron size, so that the proper sediment removal option can be utilized. Sediment removal is part of a complete water treatment system that will also take out other contaminants in your water. The sediment filters that are sold in the local home improvement or hardware stores are undersized. Installing one of these means you will need to change filters much more frequently, and they can also negatively affect your home’s water pressure. We only install commercial-grade and sized sediment filters that will save you from the hassle of frequent filter changes and save you money too.
If you’ve been more dependent on bottled water than you’d like and you are concerned about the effect that sediment is having on your home’s plumbing components and appliances, we recommend reaching out to us so that we can assess the situation and provide you with the best solution for your situation. Once we know what we are dealing with after our water testing and assessment, we can move forward to giving you the water quality that you and your family deserve.
If you have any questions about sediment removal, water testing, or water treatment systems, feel free to give us a call to schedule an appointment.
