Well, well, well… Why should you care about well water treatment?
Water that is sourced from a well can contain water contaminants including organic solids, nitrates, agricultural runoff, coliform bacteria, heavy metals, and Perfluorochemicals (PFCs) like PFOA and PFAS. Naturally occurring contaminants in water including arsenic and radon must be treated before they have the chance to enter your home.
Homeowners living well are fully responsible to conduct annual water testing. Your water quality report will most likely recommend you install a well water treatment system to provide your household with clean water.
A well water treatment system commonly consists of a whole house water filter, a water softening device, an RO system, and a UV purification system.

Addressing Problems with Well Water
Well water treatment is the solution to all the problems that present with well water. Here at Flow Right, our team considers themselves the experts on identifying issues that can come up with your water supply.
Water with a bad taste and odor
The quality of your water is influenced on the location of the well it is sourced from. When your well is next to an activity which produces pollution, like fracking, this could negatively impact the taste and safety of your water.
Hard water has a high mineral content of magnesium and calcium. These minerals cause calcification, a mineral buildup that is problematic for household appliances and the human body. Take it from the experts- the best system to treat hard water is a water filtration system combined with a water softener.

Need to Know Facts
Fact: Well water is easily contaminated. Lead, mercury, and arsenic are a few examples of contaminants that may be present in untreated home water.
Fact: Homeowners on a private well should conduct annual tests for coliform bacteria and nitrates. It will cost anywhere from $10-$20 to test water for nitrate and bacteria at a private laboratory. Testing for pesticides and organic chemicals will be much more expensive.
Fact: A whole house water filter will treat water so that it is safe to consume and use. It combines several different technologies to produce pure water.
Flow Right helps optimize your filtration system according to your individual needs and location, providing you with a great filtration system and peace of mind when it comes to your water quality.
