Hard Water. “What is hard water?” That is a question we get a lot. The answer is simple. The problems generated by hard water are a bit more complex. It has been said that “Water is the universal solvent”. That means it dissolves just a little bit of everything it touches. When water passes through the deep underground rock deposits, it dissolves and carries with it small amounts of calcium & magnesium along with smaller amounts of other minerals. These minerals dissolved into the water, make the water “hard”. They will later fall out of solution and leave their mark all around your house in the form of “water spots”. These water spots can cause a host of problems from spots on you black car after washing to deposits in your hair making it heavy and stiff… even brittle.

Hard water in Maine…. Yes, much of Maine has hard water… especially on private water wells. Just plain hard water leaves white spots or whitish staining in tubs, showers & toilet bowls. Add Iron water and you get yellow-to-orange stains with associated odors. Manganese causes similar stains. Sometimes manganese will have a residual sulfur-like odors accompanying the staining. Many times, there are more serious (health related) contaminants. Often, filtration for the more serious problems requires the hardness, iron & Manganese be removed first to prevent damage & scale buildup on the filter for the more serious problems. Here it is critical that the consumer hire a WQA “Certified Professional”, “Certified Water Specialist”. If your Water Conditioning Contractor doesn’t get it right. You could ruin the filters and end up with a worse problem than what you started with. Mainely Water LLC will look at your water tests and make the right recommendations for mitigating hard water and any other issues with your water.
Testing for Arsenic in Maine Water Wells… This is becoming a bigger issue every day. There are currently at least 2 bills being ushered through the Maine House that seek to elevate testing of well water for disease causing contaminants and specifically testing for Arsenic. If you have a private well, you should have your water tested by an independent certified lab. There are several in Maine.
- Test before you buy a new house. If you don’t, the next buyer will. That would set you up to buy a new arsenic filter system for the next buyer while your family ingested that water for several years without the benefit of filtration…. because you didn’t know.
- Test your existing house. For the same reason. If you’re going to live in the house, live there knowing the water is safe and your family is safe from water problems.
We can guide you through the testing process. We don’t actually do the analysis. That could be considered a conflict of interest. But we can order the sample containers for you and in many cases, we can even draw the samples and send them in for analysis. Call us… 207-907-9772
