Home water softeners improve the quality of water by removing bacteria and contaminants that produce foul odor
Des Moines, IA: The local water treatment expert answers frequently asked questions about water quality. TJ Riley, owner of Iowa Soft Water has served the community for over 40 years, providing water treatment products and superior customer service to area residents and business owners.
There are a number of questions customers ask TJ Riley about hard water problems. When asked if all water is basically the same, he explains, “There are three types of water; service grade, working grade and drinking water. Working grade water requires treatment because it runs through plumbing and is used by appliances and fixtures.”
When asked about the rotten egg smell from some tap water, Riley explained, “The rotten egg smell comes from sulfur which is a naturally occurring contaminant. There are no known health effects; but, sulfur can be corrosive to plumbing pipes.” Water treatment experts with Iowa Soft Water (http://www.iasoftwater.com/about.html) can provide an assessment and suggest the best solution to remove the bacteria and contaminants that produce foul odor and poor water quality
According to the water treatment expert, the hardness level of water is determined by the concentration of calcium and magnesium in water. High levels of manganese can cause orange, brown or black stains in the dishwasher or clothes washer. High levels can stain clothes and using bleach only makes it worse.
