A water softener is recommended when you have hardness (calcium and magnesium) in your water. Hard water causes lime scale deposits in household water systems which can clog pipes, reduce the efficiency of boilers and tanks and shorten the life of appliances such as washing machines, dishwashers and coffee makers. A water softener unit exchanges the hardness ions for salt or potassium ions which produces soft water and can also remove low levels of iron in the water.
Iron filter systems remove iron from your water which prevents the orange-brownish staining of your bathroom fixtures, sinks, and laundry. Iron can clog pipes and valves over time if not treated properly.
Reverse osmosis systems remove impurities in the water by household water pressure pushing tap water through a semi-permeable membrane and flushing the impurities down the drain. The drinking water then has improved taste, clarity and is odorless.
Ultraviolet light systems use special bulbs to destroy harmful micro-organisms and bacteria which lead to unsafe drinking water. This process eliminates the need for harmful chemical disinfection and chlorine use in water.
High pressure drain cleaning equipment is required when there is a large obstruction, tree roots, or kitchen grease in the line causing a blocked/clogged drain. The jetter uses a high powered spinning water jet to push the obstruction out or to destroy tree roots. When finished
clearing the obstruction, it power scrubs the line flushing debris away and restoring drain lines to their free-flowing capacity.
Some drain blockages will require a sewer camera to inspect the line to determine condition of sewer pipe, pipe deterioration, pipe sagging or cracks, pipe location and depth, tree roots and a variety of obstructions that could be in the line.
