Well water filters are not universal.
When you want to improve your well water quality, you have to install a filter that’s designed to address your specific concerns. That means you must 1.) understand the underlying cause of your water quality issues, and 2.) know which type of filter will directly treat those issues. To get an answer to both of these, you’ll likely need the assistance of a professional well contractor.
Fortunately, Goold Wells & Pumps is here to help you!
Step 1: Test Your Well Water
If you haven’t already had your private water well tested for contaminants, mineral concentrations, pH level, and other factors related to poor water quality, then that should be your first step.
You can schedule a water quality test with Goold Wells & Pumps and have us come out to analyze the contents of your water. We’ll let you know if you’re dealing with something benign, like hard water, or dangerous, like coliforms.
Once you have your results, you can confidently choose which water filtration system to install.
Step 2: Select Your Well Water Filter
Based on the findings of your well inspection and well water test, pick the well water filtration system that best addresses your needs.
There are numerous well water filters you can choose from. Popular well filtration systems include:
- Sediment filters
- Activated carbon block (ACB) filters
- Granular activated carbon (GAC) filters
- Reverse osmosis filters
- Distillation filters
- Ion-exchange (IX) filters
- Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection filters
- Ultrafiltration systems
- Activated alumina (AA) filters
- Alkaline ionization filters
You can do some research on your own about these types of filters–or you can ask Goold Wells & Pumps for our recommendations. After we inspect and test your well and deliver your results, we can give you our professional opinion on which type of system that will solve your water quality problems for good.
