Water from private wells or surface waters face special challenges and deserve extra attention and precautions, including regular testing for safety. Water is an excellent natural solvent and comes in contact with many undesirable and sometimes potentially harmful elements on its journey to your home, such as minerals, bacteria, pollutants and agricultural waste.
To responsibly address these issues, your local Kinetico water specialist will suggest a "whole home" approach that will correct your water woes. With Kinetico proven technology in your corner, you can be sure your family will get the best possible water.
Common concerns with private water supplies
Hard water is caused by dissolved minerals such as manganese. It can cause scaling on appliances, dry skin and rough, scratchy clothing, among other things.
Sulphur, high salinity (dissolved salts) and imbalances in pH can lead to noxious tastes and odours.
Murky, turbid water is often caused by silt particles drawn up from the water source. Often, the result is stain circles or silt deposits in toilets and baths.
Iron and tannins (a naturally occurring brownish compound) from shallow wells or river water are often the culprits behind unsightly stains.
Surface and private well water is especially vulnerable to contamination by bacteria, viruses, cysts, and agricultural and industrial discharges.
Surface water, shallow wells or wells susceptible to surface runoff require safeguards against bacteria, viruses and protozoa contamination.
What we believe
The first step to clearing up water problems is to know what is causing them. As local water specialists, we believe educating our neighbors about the quality of their water is one of the most important services we can provide. So we offer you that knowledge without obligation. We're here to make the process of approaching water treatment options an enlightening and enjoyable experience.
What we recommend
A Kinetico whole home water treatment system combines a Kinetico water softener or conditioner, which treats the "working water" you use for things like cleaning and laundry, with a Kinetico drinking water system, which treats the water you drink and cook with. It's an effective, reliable solution that ensures great water for your home, everywhere and anytime.
Kinetico water softeners use the power of water, not electricity, to operate. They efficiently and effectively remove hard minerals from water and regenerate on demand, which saves salt and is better for the environment.
