At Suburban Water we are able to professionally treat residential and commercial water systems. With 60+ years of knowledge, we have resolved many customers’ water quality issues. We customize solutions specific for your needs, ensuring that you get the best quality water. The easiest way to determine if you have a water quality issue is by evaluating the smell, taste, or appearance of your water. These are key indicators, but they do not specifically tell you what is wrong with it. If you aren’t sure what is wrong with your water quality, we can assess your water to find any hidden issues. Let’s explore some common home and commercial water issues you may be having:
1. Bad Odor and Taste
Taste is easily determined if you drink your tap water, but smell is also very noticeable in homes and buildings. Oftentimes it is a rotten egg or chlorine smell. Depending on how many faucets are affected, it may be a single faucet that needs to be fixed or a whole building. One way to fix this is by installing a reverse osmosis unit. These units remove unwanted contaminant, odors, and tastes from your water
2. Stained Fixtures or Appliances
Metals in your water can stain your appliances like your sink, bathtub, or toilet. Certain colors indicate what the metal is. For example, blue-green staining tells you there is copper corrosion in your pipes. If your water is cloudy and leaves orange or brown stains on your fixtures, it is likely you have iron or manganese in your ground water supply. These stains will appear on the areas you use most often such as your sink, bathtub, dishwasher and washing machine or laundry.The contaminants in your water will affect the appliances and fixtures through your entire home or office, not just one faucet. To fix an issue like this, you would need a whole system treatment since it is more than one area that is stained or discolored.
Cloudy or discolored water is a sign of turbidity. Turbidity is when there are extremely fine particles suspended or dissolved in water that scatter the light, making it appear murky or dirty. This is another issue that is typically not a one area fix, it is a whole home fix. If it is only an issue for drinking water, then it can be done just on faucets, but if you see it in your bathtub or bathroom sink, that is not a great sign. It is possible to fix this issue with a few solutions, but it is best to call your local water treatment specialist to learn all of your options.
Hard water is what occurs when you have high levels of calcium and magnesium in your water. Hard water can cause a number of issues for you and your house. It can dry out your skin and hair, leave watermarks on your dishes, scale buildup on faucet heads, and your soap may not lather as well. This is one of the most common issues for residential and commercial property owners. Luckily, this is an easy fix with a water softener or a reverse osmosis unit.
At Suburban Water we have various water treatment solutions for commercial and residential facilities. We have our standard treatment options such as:
- Water Softeners
- Reverse Osmosis Units
- Ultraviolet Disinfection Units
- Chemical Feed Pumps
These powerful solutions can be combined with others depending on your water quality issues. For example, it is common to combine a water softener and a reverse osmosis unit to treat hard water. Our design of new water treatment systems and upgrades of existing treatment systems provides maximum efficiency, eliminating extensive downtime and maintenance repairs.
