Iron / Manganese / Rotten Egg Odor Solutions
In New England, high iron or manganese and the presence of a rotten egg odor (hydrogen Sulfide Gas) are common nuisances, but are not health concerns. If you have these problems in your well water, the experience can be intolerable. Iron produces a reddish-brown discoloration and staining on clothing and fixtures. It can also cause blonde hair to have a reddish color. Manganese leaves brown/black colored stains.
Low pH (Acidic Water) Correction
If your water’s pH is below 7, it is acidic and will cause corrosion to any metal that it comes in contact with.
Arsenic has been classified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a human carcinogen (cancer causing). Long term exposure to arsenic has been linked to cancer, cardiovascular disease, immunological disorders, diabetes and other medical issues.Arsenic occurs naturally in many parts of the United States, including New Hampshire and other areas of New England.Arsenic in water has no smell, taste or color, even at high concentrations.
Radon Water Treatment
Radon is a gas that has no color, odor, or taste and comes from the natural radioactive breakdown of uranium in the ground. Drinking water containing radon presents a risk of developing internal organ cancers, primarily stomach cancer. However this risk is smaller than the risk of developing lung cancer from radon released to air from tap water. When water that contains radon is used in the home for showering, washing dishes, and cooking, radon gas escapes from the water and goes into the air.
Taste, Odor and Purification
Let’s face it, if your water doesn’t smell and taste good, you won’t want to drink it! Whether you want to just polish the taste of city water, remove chlorine or more serious contaminants such as lead, Advance offers solutions to fit your needs.
Bacteria Treatment Solutions
Water quality studies commonly find that between 20 and 40 percent of wells in any given area are contaminated with E. coli or coliform bacteria. Unfortunately, most people don’t take precautions until they’ve experienced a bad water test. And then, the typical response is to simply pour chlorine bleach into their well. Using chemicals for disinfection is a short term solution. More importantly, chemicals can produce carcinogenic by-products and affect the taste and odor of your water.
