Public water and private wells across the U.S. faces a variety of issues, including forever chemicals, hard water, chlorine, and much more. Understanding your home’s water quality is important, and unfortunately for many homeowners, the solution has become avoidance rather than improvement. Turning to plastic bottles to ease many of the frustrations that come with public water takes a toll on the environment, as well as your wallet.
At UDI, we offer more than a temporary solution to poor quality water; we provide a definitive solution. The Hydro-5 STS® water processor and ULTRA-6® reverse osmosis drinking water system can ensure your water quality is conditioned to be soft and purified of contaminants like PFAS, chlorine, iron and more.
Let’s dive in deeper to explain some of the most common water quality concerns that people want to get rid of when considering a water processing system.
The presence of forever chemicals, or PFAS (Per-and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances) pose potential health risks and can stay in your body for years. There are thousands of PFAS chemicals, and they are found in many different consumer, commercial, and industrial products as well much of the public water throughout the country. While the EPA has taken steps to minimize the damage and prevent further contamination, it is estimated that PFAS compounds are present in 97% of Americans.
High mineral content in hard water not only hinders the efficiency of appliances, but also leaves residues that can cause long-term damage to plumbing systems. While 85% of the country is known to have hard water, it is especially prevalent in properties throughout Florida and Georgia. Hard water can affect the water pressure, water taste, and even irritate your skin.
Chlorine is a widespread concern – one of the most common water issues that we hear about when we talk to new customers. While it is primarily used for disinfection during public water treatment, the amount of residual chlorine is often above a tolerable level, resulting in a distinct chemical taste and odor. Therefore, the taste and smell of public water is a cause for concern for many homeowners. Turning on the tap and being greeted with an unpleasant odor, or worse, foul taste not only diminishes the quality of daily life, but also raises questions about the safety of the water being consumed.
Bacterial Iron & Sulfur in Private Wells
Well water can have high levels of bacterial iron, sulfur, and other heavy metals that leech into the system through ground water. Private wells, that service as many as 23 million households in the United States, do not receive the same treatment that public water does, and the safety and quality of the water is left up to the homeowner. UDI offers specific filtration products for private well owners such as the FILOX Pre-Treatment System.
