Iron Removal Systems
Iron in your water can be a real inconvenience to deal with. There are many different types of iron that can be in your water. While some types of iron will make your clothes stain red and leave nasty stains all around the house wherever water is found, other types of iron are not as visible, such as iron bacteria. Regardless of the type of iron, you simply do not want it in your water. Your Northeast Culligan Man has iron removal systems that do a great job in reducing iron from your water leaving your white clothes white - not pink, orange or red!
Blue Green Stains (Low PH)
Acid Water is easily identifiable by the blue-green stains on plumbing fixtures. It eats away at faucets, fittings, and pipes, as well as corrodes water-using appliances. Many of the wells in this area are considered to be shallow which in turn makes your water more accessible to surface run off.
Often time’s water from a shallow well will produce water with a low PH or acidic water. This water will be more aggressive then water with a "balanced PH". Soft metals such as copper pipes are at risk with low PH water. The "blue green" stain is from oxidized copper from your own plumbing.
It is very important to balance the ph of your water to keep you from having costly plumbing repairs. It is recommended that your ph be 7 or higher to prevent these types of issues. There are a number of methods for elevating your PH so use the form above to consult your Local Culligan Man to determine what will work for you.
