Water Systems: Testing & Treatment

Water Systems: Testing & Treatment

Water plays a pivotal role in our daily lives, weaving through our households, sustaining life, and powering our communities. At F.H. Furr Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning & Electrical, we recognize the significance of ensuring every drop that flows through your faucets isn’t just plentiful but, more importantly, pure.

Join us as we dive into the realm of water systems testing and treatment for a greater understanding of water supply and safety.

Understanding the Source: City vs. Well Water

In urban areas, city water undergoes meticulous testing, is sourced from rivers, lakes, or reservoirs, and is treated at municipal plants to eliminate impurities. However, for those relying on well water, a heightened sense of responsibility and knowledge of well systems is essential.

Well owners must actively check quality reports and conduct regular testing due to potential contamination from the environment, which may include industrial and agriculture impurities.

Causes of City Water Contamination

  • Naturally occurring toxins like radon, arsenic, and uranium
  • Land use practices from nearby industries
  • Antiquated water lines (lead)
  • Outbreaks of pathogens like Giardia, Legionella, Norovirus, Salmonella, and Hepatitis A

Causes of Well Water Contamination

  • Perils emanating from animal waste, particularly from livestock
  • The lurking threat posed by petroleum tanks, fertilizer storage, or liquid manure
  • The potential hazard of manure piles if within 250 ft. of a water source
  • The shadow of oil and gasoline drilling within aquifer beds

We emphasize the importance of remaining vigilant, whether you’re connected to the city grid or dependent on a well. Your water source’s purity is the first line of defense against contaminants.

Testing Waters: A Crucial Examination

Testing water is akin to your annual health exam. It’s an essential diagnostic tool that unveils the presence of contaminants that could jeopardize the safety of your water supply. We advocate for a thorough examination, encompassing parameters such as bacteria, hardness, pH, iron, and chlorine.

Bacteria: Guarding Against Microbial Threats

In the microscopic realm of water, bacteria can pose a significant threat to health. Through meticulous microbiological testing, we ensure that your water is free from harmful pathogens. After all, safe water isn’t just a luxury; it’s a fundamental necessity.

Hardness: Tackling the Minerals Challenge

Hard water, laden with calcium and magnesium, may seem harmless, but its impact on your plumbing and appliances can be insidious. Testing methods delve into the mineral concentration, providing insights to combat scale buildup and ensure the efficiency of your water-dependent appliances.

pH: Balancing the Acidity

The delicate balance of acidity and alkalinity in water is crucial for its taste and impact on plumbing. Testing procedures ascertain the pH levels, allowing us to guide you in maintaining the ideal equilibrium for your water.

Iron: Eliminating Discoloration & Taste Concerns

Iron, though not harmful, can lead to discoloration and unpleasant tastes. Our testing methodologies can uncover elevated iron levels, empowering you to address these issues and restore the look and taste of your water.

Chlorine: Ensuring Disinfection Without Compromise

Chlorine, a stalwart in water treatment, ensures the elimination of bacteria. Yet, excessive levels can impact taste and form byproducts. Precise testing of chlorine levels guarantees the perfect balance — effective disinfection without compromising the quality of your water.

Treatment Systems: A Shield for Your Water

Once the tests unveil the intricacies of your water’s composition, F.H. Furr is ready with a suite of treatment systems designed to fortify your water against impurities.

Reverse Osmosis (RO) Systems: Purity Through Precision

Our RO systems, a pinnacle of water purification, use semi-permeable membranes to filter out contaminants, delivering pristine drinking water. With F.H. Furr, you experience water purity through precision.

The WOW RO Unit: Efficiency Meets Innovation

Our patented “water-on-water” reverse osmosis design is a testament to efficiency and innovation. With water waste reduction of up to 500%, the WOW RO unit conserves resources and elevates the standards of water treatment.

Bacteria Treatments: A Surgical Approach

Reverse osmosis doesn’t eliminate bacteria but expertly sieves them off. Whether through UV light or chemical feeders, we make sure biological contaminants are kept at bay, allowing only pure water to flow through.

UV Systems: Harnessing Light for Purity

Our UV systems harness the power of light to offer a 99% pure bacterial treatment. With F.H. Furr, you embrace a future where water treatment combines efficacy with environmental responsibility.

Chemical Feeder Systems: Versatile Guardians

Chemical feeders, accompanied by tanks, pumps, and mixing chambers, emerge as versatile guardians. From bacteria to sulfur smells, our chemical feeder systems offer a comprehensive defense against waterborne threats.

Schedule Water System Testing & Treatment

Understanding the importance of water treatment and systems is crucial for ensuring clean and safe water for everyone. We’ve explored how water treatment works to remove impurities, making water suitable for consumption and daily use.

From filtration to disinfection, these processes play a vital role in protecting our health and the environment.
