    Hard Water & Iron Issues - Mequon, WI

    The homeowners were having issues with rusty water and their softener and iron curtain were not functioning properly.  They called in to see if we could help them out with new pieces of equipment for their home.  Jason our project coordinator was able to get out to the home to check out the water conditions.  He found that the water was very hard and had high iron.  He recommended an ES-1044 softener and and EVFE-1248 iron filter.  Mrs. W. elected to have our equipment installed.  Our installer Garrett was able to provide them with a nice, clean install of this equipment.

    Ms. W. had been living in a home that had an iron filter that was not in service. While having some plumbing work done, the decision was made to put the iron filter back into service, and this is when bigger issues started to arise. Not too long after putting the iron filter into service they began having staining, issues with the water softener and many things in the home were becoming built up with iron. Luckily, due to Home Advisor, Ms. W. found us as a water expert in her area and we were able to get out to her and take a look at the situation. It was found that she had enough iron to warrant an iron filter, but something about this older iron filter failed immediately and caused a replacement for the water softener to be needed as well. After water testing and looking at all available options, Ms. W. found that the ES water softener and the EVFE iron filter was her best route to good quality water. Her home is now with brand new equipment that is capable of taking care of such water conditions and is clear of sediment and staining.

    Mr. D. had bought his home years ago and had always experienced iron staining issues. When he moved in there was a softener, but he added an iron filter not too long after. Although he added an iron filter, it didn't take long for issues to arise once more. He couldn't make any immediate changes and lived with the hard water build up and the iron staining for some time. After having enough and wanting to replace fixtures and appliances that were ruined by the water, he gave us a call. After scoping the plumbing, water testing and a long discussion on what the ultimate goal was for the water quality, we found that the best route was to rent our EVFE iron filter and our advanced EVR water softener. Now Mr. D. can enjoy his water and no longer will battle the buildup and staining.

    Solution to Sulfur Problems in Water- Manitowoc, WI

    Mr. and Mrs. K. had recently installed a new water softener and reverse osmosis system in their home and expected the water quality to be up to par after installing the new equipment. However, they were seeing black residue in the bathroom sinks and they specifically would notice more of it in the parts of the house that had less traffic as well. They had spoken with multiple different plumbers and companies to find out what the problem was and how they could best take care of it. It seemed that they were receiving different ideas from different people. Luckily, we were one of the phone calls, so we sent a Project Coordinator to get a first hand look at what the problem was. After some testing and observation, it was found that the home had precipitated sulfur. Sulfur is typically a gas that causes a foul odor, but in their case, the odor was minimal and the sulfur gas was precipitated into a black greasy fleck that was seen throughout the house. The new water softener they installed was not intended to handle sulfur, so they chose to install our EVS sulfur filter to capture all sulfur, whether it was gas or precipitated. Now they have zero odor and zero black residue in their bathrooms.

    This customer was looking to replace their current iron filter and water softener.  They had concerns with their current equipment's quality.  They were looking for treatment equipment that would last and be able to handle their water conditions because of the high amounts of iron and hardness in the water. Garrett, our project coordinator, was able to find them a good quality water softener and iron filter to replace their older equipment.  The homeowners also chose to get great drinking water as well and installed a reverse osmosis system.  They now have good quality water throughout the whole home.

    Mr. M. gave us a call because they were having severe iron issues and they wanted it addressed ASAP. One of the reasons why they wanted this done right away was because Mrs. M. is a hairstylist that works out of her home, and having hard, iron-filled water was not good for her business. Due to there being a budget, but a desire for quality, we showed them our rental options that includes all of our professional grade treatment equipment. Our EVRS water softener and the EVFE iron filter was found to be the best option in order to rid of their iron concerns and to allow Mrs. M. a chance to serve her clients without water quality concerns.

This unit removes minerals that stain your plumbing fixtures and eliminates odors and foul tastes. reduces the hardness and minimizes water and salt use to save them money.

    Mr. and Mrs. D. purchased a water softener for their home back in 2006 and recently they were having issues. It didn't seem that their aging softener was regenerating appropriately. After a service technician found that the water softener meter was not working, they recommended a replacement. Industry average for the life-span of water softeners is about 10-15 years and Mr. and Mrs. D. were in that range. After meeting with our Project Coordinator, the best fit seemed to be our entry level ES water softener that was simple, but still superior to what was in place prior. They now have a nice water softener that doesn't require every day attention.

    Mr. and Mrs. S. had lived in their Bellevue home for years, and for years they noticed the hard water build up and they chose to live with it. They finally had enough and chose to shop around for water softener options. We were one of the first companies to come out to their home to provide them a quote on water softener options. Naturally, we took in all the information possible. This included the city water conditions (hardness, chlorine content, etc.) and the ultimate goal of what the family was trying to achieve with their water quality as well. After a very good conversation, our EVRC model was found to be the best fit because it was the most efficient, and because it also removed the chlorine in the municipal water. They now have soft, chemical-free water.

    Mr. and Mrs. L live in a place where water softeners are a necessity to increase longevity of household appliances and fixtures. When their water softener was no longer providing working grade water, they spoke with one of our Inspectors who presented at their place of work and set up a FREE consultation with our Project Coordinator. After finding 42gpg of hardness coming through the lines, and 1.5ppm of chlorine coming from the city, we found that the EVRC was the best fit. The carbon in the EVRC helped to pull the chlorine out of the water so that it no longer had the chemical smell or taste, and their 42gpg was brought down to 0-3gpg range to increase the efficiency and lifespan of their in-home fixtures.

    Mr. and Mrs. B. were experiencing an aging water softener that was no longer working mechanically and was causing leaking all over the basement. After we found that a replacement would be the best option, we tested water conditions to see what piece of equipment would work best and it was found that they had the ability to choose from any of our resin units. They found that the ES was going to be the best fit for them. They now have a fully functioning softener that is not leaking all over their basement.

    Mr. and Mrs. B. live in Kaukauna, Wisconsin where it is well known that hard water is an issue. When they started to notice that their old softener wasn't working, they reached out. Because of the many customers we have in the Kaukauna area, we had a good idea what the water conditions were, but we still sent Project Coordinator to get all the information necessary to find what was going to be the best fit for Mr. and Mrs. B. After receiving test results and scoping plumbing, all options were shown to the homeowners and they found that the best fit was our EVRS water softener. The EVRS has some similarities to our elite softener, but a few differences as well and this is perfect for our new Kaukauna customers.

    Mr. F. began to grow frustrated with his 5 year old water softener because it was still allowing iron staining to occur throughout the house. After Mr. F. had enough, he gave us a call after doing some research on companies that could help him with his water quality concerns. Naturally, we sent a Project Coordinator to the home in order to see first hand what problems Mr. F. was experiencing and to test water on site. After test results were had, it was found that there were levels of iron that were just too high for a water softener to handle. Our EVFE Iron Filter was recommended to capture all the iron and to protect the newer water softener. After installation, Mr. F. was no longer having iron staining in the home and he can be assured now that his water softener will have a longer life span now that it's protected by our EVFE Iron Filter.

    Ms. B. & Ms. M. had lived in Appleton for a short period of time before they started to notice white crusty build up around their home. They were recommended by a friend to speak with us because we had been able to help their friend out with their hard water issues. We sent out a Project Coordinator that went to the home in order to scope the plumbing situation and perform water testing. After the results were had on site, the Project Coordinator walked the homeowners through some water education and showed multiple options. Ultimately, because they were on city water and had chlorine in their water as well, they chose to go with our EVRC water softener that both softens the water AND removes chlorine/chemicals from municipal water. Now they have chemical-free soft water.

We followed up with them after Clean Water Testing provided a well and septic inspection to diagnose the aesthetics of the water. It was found that this older water softener was no longer capable of softening, and with new appliances and fixtures arriving, they found it was best to move forward with a replacement. We found that the best fit was the EVRS, and now Mr. and Mrs. L. are providing great water to their new appliances and fixtures for the most efficient, and longest life spans possible.

    Mr. and Mrs. B. were experiencing issues with their older water softener and decided to give us a call for service. Our service technician found that well casing and additional sediment was coming up from the well and causing harm to the treatment equipment. With the age of the water softener, it made more sense to replace it versus service it, but the sediment had to be addressed in order to protect the new water softener to be installed. After looking at their options, they found that our more advanced EVR water softener with the ONE Filter for sediment was going to be the best combination to tackle their issues. They are now with an advanced water softener that is protected by the ONE Filter, so it's expected that they will not have to replace their treatment equipment for an even longer time than before.

    Mr. and Mrs. M. began experiencing iron staining in their home after years of not having any issues. With this problem arising, health and safety concerns came about as well. They started their water treatment journey with our testing division, Clean Water Testing. After finding certain metals and minerals in abundance, they decided they wanted to do something about it. We then scheduled a follow up consult with our Project Coordinator who did further testing to find the best solution to solve the aesthetic issues within the water. After having all test results and finding what the ultimate goal was, we found that our more advanced EVR water softener on the Maintenance Plan was the best fit for whole house treatment. The EVR water softener was capable of handling the amount of iron present and it allowed WIFI capabilities in order to communicate with us at the office if any issues arise. In order to address their dissolved solids found via Clean Water Testing, the Ultroflow Reverse Osmosis drinking system was next in progression for treatment, and this focus was on the drinking water. Now that they have state certified equipment in place, staining is no longer an issue, and the RO drinking system is addressing any contaminants in the water.

    Mr. and Mrs. W. moved into their home and immediately noticed that they were having water quality issues. The biggest issue was staining. They initially had a technician come out to work on an "all-in-one" system that was present, but they found extensive repairs that were needed. After talking with the homeowners, it was agreed that a replacement would be best due to the water concerns/issues and what they wanted for water quality. A Project Coordinator came out for further assessment and it was found that our EVFE iron filter was the best fit to address the iron because it can capture both ferric and ferrous iron. We would follow up the EVFE with the EVR water softener, and this was because the EVR is the most salt efficient and most intelligent system. They now have crystal clear water that isn't staining the house and a water softener that is protected and intended to last them even longer.

    Mr. and Mrs. P. had moved into their newly built home for a couple years and had no issues initially, but as time went on, they noticed some discoloration in the water. The oddest part of their discolored water was that they were on municipal water, and it's not common whatsoever to have discolored water from the city. After a service call and consultation, it was found that the chlorine in the city water was breaking down the media in their water softener and causing a discoloration. The solution was to install a whole house filter prior to the water softener that was capable of removing chlorine and chemicals that would harm the water softener and cause other issues like the discoloration. They now have a certified filter that not only removes chemicals and chlorine, but also lead and cysts.

    Mr. and Mrs. C. had attempted to treat their iron problems through a known competitor, but unfortunately due to a misdiagnosis in the type of iron present, staining was still a problem in the home. With continued problems, the homeowners chose to reach out to us from a referral made by their well driller, so we sent out one of our Project Coordinators to assess the situation. Not only did they have high iron, but they had ferric iron, so our recommendation was to treat the iron via our EVFE iron filter that is meant to capture high levels of both ferrous and ferric iron. Due to the amount of iron going through the previous softener, we found it necessary to replace the softener as well and provided the best efficiency possible with installing the EVR water softener. Now their home is not being beaten up by high levels of ferric iron and is efficiently softened.
