Water Filtration in Maine !
Water Softeners, Water Purifiers, Water Filters, Water Treatment… Sounds simple, right ? Sometimes “Yes”… Sometimes “No”. A simple cartridge filter to remove sand or sediment is something you may be able to do yourself… maybe not. A run-of-the-mill water softener is a job very few folks can do correctly… but maybe. Effective solutions to “Problem Water” absolutely requires education & experience. So many people take clean water for granted. But, those of us with Iron in the water, Smelly water, Bacterial contamination, or even Arsenic or Radioactive contaminants need professional help from people that have that education & experience.
Water Softeners & Certified Professionals
So… A lot of folks have the skills to connect pipes together. On the surface, that’s all it takes to install a water softener… or so it seems. But remember, if you’re installing a water softener, you’re trying to solve a problem. Sometimes we only create more problems. Even if you are a skilled plumber, you may not know the intricacies of a proper, functional and effective water softener installation. Some Examples:
- A “Cross-Connect” – your water softener is attached to your fresh water… Right ? Did you know it is also connected to your sewer or septic system ? Does that strike you as a potential danger of contamination ? YES ! Without proper connection to the drain, this is a huge potential problem for your family’s health. Most people (even companies in the water business) do not know the proper way to connect a water softener to your drain. Don’t take chances ! Hire a Certified Installer to install your water softener.
- “Continuation of Ground” – Check this out… Most homes use the cold water pipes as the common grounding system for all the electrical wiring in the house. If your non-certified installer puts in a plastic filter housing or water softener valve, that interrupts the grounding of your home’s electrical system. A Certified Professional knows the importance of proper technique to assure “Continue of Ground” keeping your home electrically safe.
