A person who gets their fresh water from a municipal waterworks in this country has little to fear when it comes to contamination since the city must make sure that the water is, if not pristine, then safe to drink. A person who owns a private well doesn’t have such reassurances. Fortunately, he or she can ask for a water report for the well from a local lab recommended by Virginia’s Department of Health. After that report comes in, the customer can then call us at Plumber Dr to install their well water filter.

What are well water filters?
A well water filter is a filter that can be installed to remove contaminants from the water that comes into the house. Home and business owners have several types of filters to choose from. Filters that remove iron and manganese from the water are quite popular.
Iron and manganese make the water that comes out of the tap hazy and leaves black stains on the fixtures, bathtubs, and countertops. Iron filters use chlorine to take the impurities out of the water. In turn, the chlorine is removed from the water by charcoal filters.
Other types of filters use ultraviolet radiation to destroy the DNA of pathogens like cryptosporidium and E. coli. A reverse osmosis filter allows water to pass through filters but keeps out contaminants. Sediment filters keep out grit that can clog faucets and aerators.
One type of well water filter that can be used in tandem with other types of filters is a water softener. This type of filter will remove minerals like calcium and magnesium. The well water flows through a tank of resin beads in salt water. There, the hard minerals are exchanged for sodium. If the homeowner wants the extra sodium removed from the water, the water can then be flushed through a reverse osmosis filter.
What are signs you need to replace your filter?
Well water filters can last for years if they’re given regular maintenance and troubleshooting, but the time does come when they’ll need to be replaced. A customer will notice changes in the water that the filter should be dealing with but no longer is. This includes discoloration, foul taste, and odd odor. Moreover, no amount of repair can coax the filter into working properly. In these cases, replacement is necessary.
Why is maintenance important?
Maintenance is important because after time, filters and membranes become clogged and need to be changed to ensure a steady supply of clean well water. The resin tank of a water softener also needs to be rinsed from time to time.
