We had a customer reach out to us regarding issues she had had for years with iron in her water. Her son had an iron filter installed by us and wanted to see if we can fix her water too. We sent out a project coordinator to see what we had going on with the water. After testing we found two type of iron in the water, a ferrous iron and a ferric iron. The water softener in place was older and won’t do anything for ferric iron. We recommend replacing the softener and add an iron filter. The homeowner decided to go with the EVRS water softener and the EVFE iron filter. After a nice and clean install, the homeowner is now enjoying the iron free water!
Originally the homeowner called and set up an appointment for a salt delivery to her home. Upon arrival, our technician Kyle found that both the water softener and the iron filter were leaking from the head of the unit. He discussed replacing those parts but the homeowner decided to she wanted to just replace the units. He scheduled a consultation for Nate, our retail manager to come out to discuss option.
Nate presented the homeowner with a few different options and they decided on a ES-1044 softener and EVFE-1248 iron filter. Our technician, Shae, then went out to the home in just a few short days to install her brand new equipment and brought her enough salt for the year at the same time.
Mr. and Mrs. K. had just moved into their new home and found that they had high levels of Arsenic. Not only that, but they weren't sure about the functionality of a very aged water softener that was in the basement. After a Project Coordinator did further aesthetic testing, it was found that there were trace levels of sulfur, enough iron to cause staining and hardness in the water. To address the drinking quality and rid of the Arsenic the Ultroflow Reverse Osmosis was the state certified system to remediate this issue, the iron filter took care of the high levels of iron AND sulfur odor, and the WiFi capable water softener softens the water. The K. family is now provided healthy, clean water for the family.

Garrett also reviewed the settings on the water softener and tested the water before and after her softener. A few maintenance items were performed on the softener but all appears to be working great!
Clint called us with concerns that his sulfur filter (EVS-1354) may not be working properly. We scheduled a date and time for Randy our service manager to take a look. Upon arrival Randy tested the water and found that the sulfur filter was removing all of the smell from the water. However, we did find that the time of day on the unit was off, which could be resulting in the homeowner using water when the sulfur filter is in regeneration (when the filter is being bypassed). Randy reset the time of day and made sure the softener and filter were operating properly.
Sometimes well water can smell. We can help with that! A sulfur filter can pull the odors out of the water without the use of any chemicals. The media inside of the tank will have to be replaced eventually (depending on amount of odors, and water usage). You do not have to live with smelly water just because you’re on well water! In this case the homeowner wanted a water softener to take out the hardness and iron, and a sulfur filter to pull the odors out.
Mr and Mrs B called us to come out to look at their Impression Reverse Osmosis System. They were experiencing very low water pressure and condensation on one of their water tanks. We found that the RO pressure tank needed to be replaced. We left the home making sure everything was neat and clean as it was before we got there.
The homeowner called us to take a look at their water softener. While we did not install this unit, we do service most makes and models. The water softener had stopped working and they wanted to see if we could get it running again. Our service technician Garrett arrived on scene to find the unit unplugged and inoperable. Garrett dug in and discovered the timer motor was bad, along with injector and an O-ring. Garrett replaced the bad parts and got the water softener back up and running.
Mr. and Mrs. P called us to help them out. Their water softener would not stop running. Our technician Garrett was able to find the problem and fix it immediately. He then tested the water before and after the treatment equipment to make sure everything was running smoothly before he left. Thank you for your business!!

We do a 10 point performance check up of the water softener and do preventative maintenance . We delivered salt out to them for the year at pick up price and we tested their water before and after their water treatment equipment to make sure everything is functioning properly.
Mr and Mrs G. have signed up on our service plan. Every year we will come to their home to do a 10 point performance check on their water softener and take care of the preventative maintenance.

Garrett, our tech, was able to diagnose that the unit had some faulty parts. He was able to fix them and made sure the settings were set correctly. He also tested the water before and after the water treatment to be sure the equipment was doing its job.
Mrs. H called us with her concerns of a foul smell in the water. We sent our technician Garrett out to the home to diagnose the situation. While he was there he found some parts that were dripping water and replaced them. He also tested the water and noticed that the iron filter was not filtering out all of the iron. He informed the customer of information on different types of water tests that she could do to try to figure out what the smell was and also it may be time for her 19 year old iron unit may need to be replaced.
This homeowner called and was having issues with their water treatment equipment. They were getting a smell on both the hot and cold water. Garrett our tech, went out to the home to investigate the situation. He was able to fix up their iron filter and change their RO filters. After everything was fixed up, he tested the water to make sure all the water treatment equipment was properly working before he left.
Homeowners called us because they were noticing rust in their water. They had never had their softener serviced before and were using the water for irrigation purposes. Because of that, the units insides were depleting causing the system to not function properly. We were able to send a tech out to fix the problem and get them great water again.
The homeowner called us to see if we could help with pressure problems. They had their local plumber out to change out a pressure tank but they were still having pressure problems.
We were able to go to the home to check out the system. Randy was able to test the water and replaced some parts. Everything looks good now.
The homeowner called to see if we could come out to their home to fix a hose that was cracked in half. We sent our technician Kyle out to the home to re-run fresh new tubing to the proper places. He also changed the filters for the system at this time to and tested the water to make sure all the water treatment equipment was properly working.
The homeowners called to see if we could come out to inspect their water softener. The unit was not drawing any water out the brine tank.

He regened the unit and took water tests before and after the water treatment equipment to be sure everyhing was running properly.
The current homeowners were experiencing constant running of water to the drain. The unit didnt seem to be using any salt as well. Kyle, our tech, went out to the home to investigate the situation. Kyle found that the EVFE Iron filter was plugged up and was able to change a few parts and got the units running again.
The homeowner called us because he was not getting any pressure with their reverse osmosis system after changing the yearly filters. The service manager Randy, went out to the home to investigate. He was able to check the filters over and foiund that one of the filters was but into the system the wrong way. He also tested the water to make sure that the RO system was working properly before he left.
The homeowner here called us to fix their water softener. They were having standing water in the brine tank, a salty taste to the water and they were going through salt like crazy. Our technician Layke was sent out to the home to investigate the situaiton. He found that there were a few parts that were not working correctly and changed them out. He then tested the water before and after the water softener to be sure the homeowners were getting the best quality of water.
Mr. M called us to see if we could fix his water softener. He said that the water did not seem to be going down in the brine tank. Our service manager Randy, was able to get to the home to investigate the situation. He was able to change a few small parts and ran it through a cycle to make sure the unit was working properly before he left. All is good now. Thank you Mr. M for your business.
Mr. and Mrs. S reached out to us about there rental softener not working correctly. We had are service tech kyle come out to the home to diagnose the issue. Kyle found the injector plugged with well casing. Kyle replaced the injector and the piston all at no cost on the rental softener. Kyle ran the softener and made sure it was working as it should. Mr. and Mrs. S are happy that kyle was able to fix the softener within 1 hour!

Mr, J had his maintenance plan renewal. During this time we performed regular maintenance and inline filter repalcement. Mr, J had his yearly salt delivered to his basement to save him time. When Kyle are service tech was there Mr, J had him take a water sample for his yearly well test that is recommended.
Sulfur smells can be very overwhelming and something you don't want to smell! This homeowner was having high amounts of sulfur in their home and had a EVS-1354 installed to take care of the smell. We were finding with the high amounts of sulfur in the water the smell would break through at times. We changed the programming of the EVS-1354 to handle the higher amounts of sulfur. After the programming adjustments the smell was no longer there.
This homeowner was noticing loud noises coming from the basement by the water softener. Are service manager Randy came out to the home to see what was going on. He first tested the water to see if the water softener was working and it was. He changed the screen and injector because it was due for replacement and ran it threw and cycle. The softener was not making any noise but found the well pump was short cycling. Randy recommended a plumper take a look at the pump.
This customer of ours has been using the EV2 softener for 8 years. When we installed there was a high amount of hardness and iron. Over the years the water conditions changed and made it much harder for the unit to keep up. With the hardness going up and the iron dropping we found it would be best to rebed with resin. Resin can handle a very high amount of hardness and very little iron. When we tested back in 2011 the iron was too high for resin. Now with having more hardness and less iron the resin was the best solution for the water conditions.
Mr. and Mrs. G. asked us to come out to their home to change their yearly reverse osmosis filters and to check over their water softener as it was making terrible noises.
Randy, our service manager, was able to head out to the home to change those filters and investigate the noise on the softener. He cleaned the softener up and tested the water to make sure the system was functioning properly before leaving the home.
Mrs. C. called to see of we could come check out her water treatment equipment. She was experiencing a lot of air in the lines when using her faucets. Randy our service manager, was able to go to the home and investigate the issue. He was able to clean up the system and change a few parts. The homeowner was not charged anything for this visit because they are under the maintenance plan that they signed up for at the time of install.
The homeowner gave us a call because they were having problems with their reverse osmosis system tank. It didn't seem to be producing water very fast. Randy, our service manager, stopped over at the home to inspect the unit. The filters needed to be changed as they were all plugged up. He then tested the water to make sure the RO was working properly and even checked over the water softener as long as he was there.
Mrs. V. called us because she was noticing some air in the lines after the unit regens usually first thing in the morning. After the first burst of air, it usually goes away. Kyle our tech tested the water and everything looked good there. He ran the unit through a regen and found poor air draw and a loud squeal during cycles. He changed a few parts that needed to be changed out. He instructed the home owner to do a super regen for the next 3 days and let us know if the air comes back.
Mr. and Mrs. A. were experiencing sulfur smell issues on city water. Nate, our retail manager, went to visit their home and inspect the situation. He was able to give the homeowners a few different options to choose from to help eliminate the terrible smell they had. The homeowners decided on an Evolve EVBF-1054. This specific unit helps eliminate chlorine, iron, and reduces nuisance particles.
The customer originally called Clean Water Center because they believed a piece of their equipment was not functioning correctly. Randy, our service team manager went to the residence. Randy found the bypass valves closed, thus cutting off the water softener from the water supply. Randy ran the unit through cycle and all was well.
This customer gave Clean Water Center a call because his water softener was constantly running to the drain. Garrett, one of our service technicians, arrived to find the unit in bypass. Garrett also discovered several other internal parts that would need to be replaced to get this water softener up and running. Ultimately, it came down to a the decision by the customer of repair vs. replace.
This commercial account called us to come out to their business to check over the water treatment equipment. Randy, our Service Manager was able to get to them right away. He found a plug on one of the units had become corroded. We were able to replace the cord and sent them a few extras to have on hand.
Mrs. K. scheduled an appointment for us to come out to her home to deliver salt for her water softener and to clean the brine tank out. Kyle was able to deliver her solar salt. Being the middle of winter, it is harder to clean the brine tank out. Mrs. K.'s brine tank was experiencing some bridging (meaning salt build up in the tank). She would need to let the salt run down and start chipping away at it. He discussed the benefits of cleaning the tank out in the summer outside with a garden hose.
The homeowners called us because they were having low water pressure with their reverse osmosis filtration system. Kyle our tech went to the home to explore the issue. After investigating the unit, he found that the filters were full of sediment and was able to change them out to get a good flow of water again.
Mr. and Mrs. G. called to see if we could come figure out why they were getting hard water spots on their shower and dishes and also wanted us to see why their water had a very salty taste. Our technician tested the water when he arrived and found that there was significant hardness breakthrough with the water treatment equipment. As he looked over the system changed a few parts, he noticed that there was well casing buildup in the valves of the unit. He recommended a Twist II Clean filter to be installed before the water softener to catch those well casings. They elected to go with the new filter and now everything is working great.
Mr. & Mrs. S had moved to a new home in Omro and they went from being on well water to city water and they had previously reaped the benefits of water softening and reverse osmosis in their last home. The new home in the city did not have soft water or high quality drinking water and it was very noticeable to the family. Because of this, they gave us a call to see what we could do for them to fix their water quality concerns. After testing water and scoping the plumbing situation, a solution was found. It was a more complicated install because space was limited, utilities were in a smaller crawl space or in small closet area. There was no room for a traditional water softener set up and putting the RO system under the sink was not preferred. After a good discussion and inspection, we found together that the EVCS cabinet model water softener was the best option because it optimized on space and we were able to install the RO drinking system in the crawl space to remain out of the kitchen itself. The family is now very happy with softened water and food grade drinking water although they felt hindered on space.
Mr. R called us to see if we could stop out to his home to see why his water had a metallic taste. He initially noticed it just on the hot water so he flushed his water heater. After that, the taste was in both the hot and cold. We were able to get Kyle our service tech out there to investigate the problem. He found that the homeowners iron filter was leaking water to the drain and had very little air in the unit. He changed out a few parts and re-ran the unit through a cycle. All was working well after the cycle.
This customer had just purchased the house and had Clean Water Testing do health and safety testing on his well. The new homeowner wanted to make sure that the water would be good, as he was refinishing the house, and putting in all new appliances and fixtures.
A Project Coordinator met him at his house and tested the aesthetics of the water. After finding 34gpg of hardness, and 3 ppm of Iron, it was good thing that he had called for equipment. The new homeowner decided to go with the EVR-1054, and EVFE-1354 to help with the hardness and iron in his house. He also elected to go on the Maintenance plan so that we can help him take care of it, and he gets the lifetime warranty on his new equipment. We installed it, and when he is ready to move in, he will no longer need to worry about the water ruining his new investment.
A couple had recently purchased a new home in Neenah and had hard water staining starting to show in some of their appliances, they were also not fond of the taste of the water and had concerns about the quality of the drinking water.
A Project Coordinator met with them in the home and tested the water aesthetics, finding 8gpg of hardness and Chlorine at .5ppm. The homeowner decided on an EVRC-1054, this will treat the hardness and chlorine for all the inside water fixtures and appliances. This will protect their plumbing and their skin from the harshness of calcium and chlorine. The EVRC is very water and salt efficient, in their case a 2 person household is estimated to only use 7 or 8 bags of salt per year.
In addition they also purchased a ClearFlo Reverse Osmosis system to further filter drinking water and treat the water going into the refrigerator for cleaner, better quality water and ice.
The homeowners also opted for the Maintenance Plan so that they do not have to worry about regular maintenance on the equipment, and they have a lifetime warranty of both the softener and the RO.
James and his family moved into a home and quickly noticed a rotten egg smell coming from the water.
They called the Clean Water Center and we dispatched a Project Coordinator to access the water conditions. The home had a Chlorination/dichlorination system installed, but it was older and no longer worked.
After our staff tested the water and took some photos a discussion was had explaining that we do not always need such a large system to treat sulfur like we used to.
The decision was made to rent an sulfur filter as well as a point-of-use reverse osmosis system at the kitchen sink, to not only improve the water quality throughout the home but also to improve the taste of the drinking and cooking water.
This customer in Oshkosh had recently moved into a home and they were not familiar with water treatment equipment the previous homeowner had installed.
The Clean Water Center scheduled an appointment with the new homeowner to take a look and walk through what the water treatment did, how it works, and how to maintain not only the water softener but their reverse osmosis system as well. During the consultation, our staff noticed that the current softener no longer worked and was probably not economical to try and fix.
A discussion was had with the homeowner and they had decided to purchase a new water softener to protect their home from water hardness and a small amount of iron.
A new family moved into a home, and with a young child in the home they were not happy with the quality of water in the home. To give them peace of mind, and improve their drinking water quality they decided to install a reverse osmosis system for all the water they consume. This great drinking water not only goes to an additional faucet at the kitchen sink to fill jugs or pots, but also to their refrigerator for drinking water and ice cubes.
It had come to this customers attention that city water is not soft, and become worried about what was in the water that was coming from the city. He has a family with children and wanted the best water conditions to help raise healthy kids.
All municipal water distributors chlorinate their water by law to safely transport water to homes. Once the water is in your home however, chlorine is useless and some may be sensitive to it. Chlorine smells, and can irritate the skin and eyes.
For this the customer decided to install our EVRC-1054U, which is a split tank unit. Activated Carbon at the top of the unit treats chlorine, and the resin in the bottom treats water hardness.
For all the other contaminates that may be in city water, Reverse Osmosis is the way to go. They are more reliable than distillers and can be state certified in specific contaminants. Usually used for drinking water, Reverse Osmosis is usually better than drinking water quality, depending on initial conditions.
Aging equipment is a problem all homeowners deal with. As the years go by our appliances and equipment get closer and closer to failing. Water treatment is important to monitor because as a softener or iron filter starts to fail unnecessary damage is done to other water using appliances, fixtures ,plumbing and faucets. This customer started to notice iron staining in their sinks and toilets and wanted their iron filter checked out.
Once a Project Coordinator was on site they concluded that indeed the iron filter had seen its last days. The problem with iron filters is when they start to fail a water softener will attempt to pick up the slack. Once an iron filter is replaced the water softener may relax, and release some of the iron built up inside from when it was trying to pull double duty. Thankfully in this case the customer caught it early and no permanent damage was done to the softener.
Thinking of the future, the customer also joined our service plan so we can regularly check up on both the softener and iron filter to make sure the operate correctly. We also deliver salt and haul it inside while we are there annually to save the backs of the homeowner, as well as saving them time and money.
There is only one way to know exactly what is in water, and that is to take everything out and put exactly what is desired back in.
For this customer, they had particularly picky plants and wanted to make sure they were doing their best to take care of their home and their plants.
On city water the first thing to treat is the chlorine, its a commonly used sanitizer and,
municipalities use it for keep water safe from the distribution center to the home of their residents.
Once in the home, chlorine is a skin irritant and individuals can be very sensitive to it,
it also does not smell very nice when in higher concentrations.
The best way to treat chlorine is with activated carbon, the first half of our whole home treatment in our EVRC-1054U
The second half is our high performance resin, which treats the calcium and magnesium that makes up water hardness.
City water works can only do so much and nearly all water in East Wisconsin is hard if not very hard.
Water hardness causes build up in pipes, white residue on water fixtures, and white staining of glass.
Treating hardness make soaps work magnitudes more effectively, lengthens the life of water using alliances like laundry machines and dishwashers,
keeps water heaters running as efficient as possible.
The next step in this customer's water treatment is Reverse Osmosis,
This step takes our up to 98% of everything that is in the water through a series of 4 filters.
The connected this system to an additional faucet at their sink for drinking, cooking, rinsing or washing food, and making ice.
It was also connected to a spout in their attached greenhouse, which they filled jugs with and then added specific plant food before watering.
the customers now know more precisely what is in the water they put on, and in themselves, as well as what is going on their plants.
as long as they keep up with maintenance, filter changes and carbon replacements their water will stay the best it can be.
We had a customer that reached out too us because the gotten a high water bill from the city and was told the water softener was the issue. The softener in place was older and we recommend looking into a replacement was the best option. We sent out a project coordinator to see what we could do. After arriving we found the unit was just running to drain constantly and this was causing the high water bill. After going over some new softener options the customer went with the ES water softener. After a nice and clean install the customer is happy to have a working softener and not have high water bill!
