Testing Reverse Osmosis water for drinkability will illustrate how well your system is doing its job. A hardness test reveals how much your water should be softened and whether an existing system is properly operating or even over softening.
We service and install Reverse Osmosis systems for quality drinking water year round without buying cases of plastic water bottles. Our 5 stage systems filter above and beyond others and replacement filter cartridges are simple and affordable.
Our featured water softening systems employ an “on demand” regeneration cycle to eliminate unnecessary water waste and provide uninterrupted soft water during heavy use. Systems are available in several sizes to match the specific needs of your home.
Our whole house water filters are an entire water treatment system designed to remove chlorine, contaminants, and microbial material, as well as softening your water through an ionization process that is salt free.
Have you even seen the commercials on TV, such as Coor’s beer commercials, which reel you in with the footage of cold, clear and clean Rocky Mountain spring water cascading down over rocks and falls in a pristine setting? Never mind the beer it supposedly ends up as; I want to drink that water! Unfortunately that’s not the same stuff that emerges from our taps. The fact of the matter is that many municipalities tend to over condition our water. There is of course good reason for it. We need to remove pollutants such as pesticides (herbicides, insecticides, defoliants, and bromide), lead, pharmaceuticals, as well as countless types of bacteria, solvents, and who knows what else it gathers on its way to us. But what are we treating it with to kill and/or neutralize all of this bad stuff? We hit it with chlorine and Sodium Hypochlorite to control microbes, and then add disinfectants such as bleach, calcium hypochlorite and chlorophenol. I’m pretty sure we have not evolved to ingest these products and it seems to me we are trading off short term illnesses for long term effects. The good news is that awareness is improving as to what we put inside of us. As we learn more, we develop products to counter the problems we face. Simply put, that’s why we live longer now. Having quality water treatment products in our homes is just one example of how we take matters into our own hands. Reverse Osmosis, for example […]
HAPPY NEW YEAR! We have “theme months” here at Sterling Services where we focus on certain areas each month and January is “Water Quality Month”. This time we’re going to address some water softener features. Once people learn about the benefits of water softeners, it becomes time to figure out the differences. Although most differences are in the overall product quality and reputation, there are some design variations as well. One of the major progressions made in the water softener world is going from a timed regeneration cycle to a unit operating “on demand”. Most early models, along with some newer but lesser priced systems go through the regenerating process using a motorized or digital time clock (time initiated). When it’s time to regenerate, which is a necessary step in softening the water, the timer initiates this cycle whether it’s needed or not. The problem here is that you could have had a recent busy time in the household where there were Holiday visitors, lots of showers being taken, laundry being done and dishes being washed. By the time this regeneration cycle occurs, it may be long overdue and all the soft water could have long been depleted. On the flipside, if you had been the one visiting others during the Holidays with your home sitting vacant with no water use, it could have very well gone through multiple “regen” cycles, which is a big waste of salt and water. A higher quality alternative is a demand-initiated system, which begins […]
