Common Water Contaminants In New Jersey

New Jersey's water sources can be laden with various contaminants. These impurities can affect taste, smell, and even your health.

Some water contaminates are not harmful, yet they leave behind evidence of their presence.

IRON: This will leave behind rusty, brownish-orange stains on appliances, laundry, showers, and toilets. Although not dangerous to digest, water with iron can cause your cleaning day to be prolonged as you have to scrub those pesky rust stains!

LOW pH: Water with low pH will leave greenish/blue stains in sinks and tubs. These stains are caused by the thinning of the copper water supply lines from the corrosive water. Not only does low pH water thin your plumbing supply lines, but it will eventually thin your wallet as you will have to make all those plumbing repairs!

SULFUR: This is obvious immediately as it will leave a rotten egg odor in the water. Sulfur is a non-harmful gas found in ground water. Higher levels of sulfur may tarnish silverware and leave a blackish stain on water using appliances.

Other contaminates leave no evidence that you can detect with your senses, yet they are very harmful. Some of these are nitrates, lead, bacteria, PFOS, mercury, arsenic, volatile organic compounds, gross alpha, and disinfection by-products.

Every contaminate has a treatment solution! If your water tests positive for a harmful, or not so harmful, contaminate please be assured that we will provide the best water treatment system for your home.


Well Water Vs. Municipal Water

While well water offers a natural and often untampered source, municipal water comes with the assurance of regular monitoring. However, both have their vulnerabilities, making water analysis testing crucial regardless of the source. We can break down the complexities and help you understand your water's story.
