Whether you have a home or business, we can install a system that will make your water safe for drinking while still preserving its taste. 

There are many factors that can affect the taste of your water. These include the type of pipe, fluoride and other chemicals added to municipal water, and minerals from your local spring. 

Water Testing 

Whether you’re a municipal water drinker or a good owner with an eye on the future, a quality water test is in order. For city dwellers, the most common tests include a standard water analysis to identify the number of contaminants you’re consuming and a reading on your pipes to ensure they’re in good shape. 

For private good owners, the best way to know what you’re getting is by testing your aquifer on an annual basis. There are many water treatment options available to improve the quality of your aquifer including whole-home and under-sink water filtration systems, water softeners, and reverse osmosis drinking water systems. The right product for your needs is determined by a combination of factors, such as the size of your home, its location, and the specific requirements of your aquifer. A qualified professional can recommend the right system for you and your needs. The biggest challenge is finding the right solution that will produce the best results. 

Water Softeners 

Water softeners help restore the quality of your tap water by reducing the hard minerals that cause buildup in pipes and appliances. These systems use ion exchange to remove calcium and magnesium that contribute to hard water. 

Some water softeners can also filter your tap water to reduce chlorine, iron, sulfur, and other contaminants that can affect your health. Some softeners also monitor the amount of salt left in your salt tank and alert you when it’s time to change the salt. 

Unlike water filters, which are used to remove certain kinds of dissolved solids from the water that you drink, shower with, and cook with, water softeners use ion exchange to remove calcium and other hard water minerals. 

RainSoft’s premium, computer-controlled whole-house softeners measure your water usage and automatically regenerate when necessary. They also connect to the RainSoft Remind app for low-salt notifications and filter change reminders. 

Reverse Osmosis 

Reverse osmosis is a water treatment process that uses pressure to force water molecules through a semi-permeable membrane. This process removes ions, unwanted molecules, and larger particles from your drinking water. 

Osmosis is the natural process of a solvent moving from a solution of lower concentration to one of higher concentration to achieve equilibrium. In reverse osmosis, the highly concentrated water is forced to move into the water at a lower concentration, which filters out most dissolved salts (ions), bacteria, pyrogens, and other particles. 

It also removes minerals from your drinking water. Some of those minerals are essential for a healthy body. 

If you’re concerned about the lack of minerals in your RO water, we have a way to add them back in – our reverse osmosis water remineralization cartridges. They can help restore the quality of your tap water and give it an improved taste! 

Bottled Water 

Bottled water is often sold as a healthful alternative to tap water. It is marketed as having a higher purity and better taste than tap water, and it can be more convenient to have on hand. 

However, bottled water is not always safe to drink, and it can have negative environmental and social impacts. It also uses a lot of energy to produce. 

Unlike tap water, bottled water can contain bacteria and other contaminants that may cause illness. It can also be contaminated with microplastics, which are tiny, non-biodegradable plastic particles that are created by the manufacturing process and that pose a potential risk to human health. 

The quality of bottled water varies by type and is regulated by the FDA, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and many state governments. It is important to understand the regulations that govern bottled water so you can choose the best one for your family.
