Water Quality used to be a nonissue. But with pharmaceuticals in water supplies, the effects of chlorine, industrial and biological contamination, an aging water distribution infrastructure and naturally occurring substances that degrade the taste and feel of water...we're all thinking about the quality of our water more than ever.
Water Quality varies from home to home. Water treatment for one family may not be right for another. Depending on the water issue, the solution may address all the water in your home, (point-of-entry) or only water that is dispensed from a specific tap (point-of-use). The method of treatment and the type of water desired will also determine what’s right for you.
PFAS are widely used, long lasting chemicals, the components of which break down very slowly over time. They can be found everywhere, but water is the primary point of exposure. Your chance of developing cancer, thyroid conditions, excessive cholesterol, hormone irregularities, and immunodeficiency can all be increased by PFAS. It is crucial to test your water for PFAS given the aforementioned causes. The NHDES began offering a PFAS Removal Rebate Program in June 2020, as a solution to help qualified homeowners with the cost of PFAS treatment and its installation. Treating your PFAS is now easier than ever thanks to NHDES certified vendors like us, who can handle all the paperwork required for the rebate on your behalf. Call us as soon as possible to learn what's in your water, whether you qualify for NHDES reimbursement, and how to remove PFAS from your water.For more information, check out the current NHDES Fact Sheet: NHDES PFAS Fact Sheet 2020
For many homeowners and businesses, hard water (which is composed of calcium and magnesium) is a common problem. Heat and hardness minerals combine to generate the problematic scale. Your plumbing, water heater, and other water-using equipment accumulate scale, which causes costly damage to these appliances. When mixed with soap, the minerals create soap curd or scum, which results in dry and itchy skin, lifeless hair, dull laundry, stains on glassware as well as cutlery, and build up on fixtures. Appliances that use water may operate poorly or have a reduced lifespan due to hard water and scale exposure.
Radon escapes during the course of water usage, which causes it to build up and increase the radon level in your home. It may increase the risk of certain conditions, most notably lung cancer. Ingestion of radon that remains dissolved in water poses an additional health risk. The danger from ingestion is, on average, lower than that from inhalation. Overall, radon poses a higher risk than other drinking water contaminants.
Arsenic (As) occurs naturally in the earth's crust, and traces of arsenic can be found throughout our environment. Arsenic in soil may occur naturally, and human actions in the past may have increased these levels in some regions. Historically, the largest application of arsenic in the United States has been as a pesticide. Nowadays, arsenic is predominantly used as a wood preservative. In ground water, arsenic exists primarily in two forms: As+3 (arsenite) and As+5 (arsenate). Organic arsenicals are not known to be present at substantial quantities in ground water. While arsenic's chemical structure may alter over time in the environment, the element itself does not degrade.
How can I reduce arsenic levels in my water?
These are two commonly used methods in removing arsenic from water:
1) point-of-entry treatment (POE) systems treat the water for your entire household.
2) point-of-use (POU) systems treat the water at one water source in your household.
Only you can decide which treatment option best suits your lifestyle and budget. Feel free to get in touch with us any time it's convenient for you, and we'll be more than happy to help in any way we can.

Well Pumps (New Hampshire Well Pump Installer License # 1354)
There are many types and sizes of pumps for water systems. Some are only designed to remove water from a source. Others not only remove the water, but also force it through the rest of the water system. Some pumps are for special jobs such as boosting pressure or supplying a special outlet. Booster pumps are to be installed after a storage tank, if your pumping installation is not properly planned, you will not receive satisfactory water service.
Pressure tanks provide storage for your water system. There are three general types of water storage tanks:
Constant Pressure Pump System
SQE Pump and Motor
The SQE is the only constant pressure pump on the market fully equipped with built-in electronic controls which allow for advanced computer controlled performance and state of the art protection features including sophisticated diagnostics. The motor design is a Variable Speed Drive which electronically changes the pump speed to match demand providing you with the incredible comfort of constant pressure.
Each unit is equipped with:
Soft start – prevents water hammer and motor overheating
Dry run protection – pumps are water lubricated and if your well runs low, an unprotected pump will die
Overload protection – if a pump becomes clogged with debris like sand or grass, it can destroy an unprotected motor
Over and under voltage protection – the lifetimes of unprotected motors can be greatly reduced by improper voltages. Rural parts of the country are notorious for wide variations in voltage supply
CU301 User Interface
The CU301 User Interface is the easy to use command and control computer for operating the pump in constant pressure mode. The user simply chooses the desired water pressure by pressing the UP or DOWN arrows, and the CU301 does the rest.
In order to control pressure, it must be measured. The included pressure sensor precisely measures water pressure sending its signal to the CU301. The CU301 reads this pressure signal and then electronically commands the pump to start, stop, speed up, or slow down in order to maintain constant pressure regardless of water demand. It controls the pump via power line communications by impressing high speed data messages on the pumps power supply cable. This technology is similar to that used in a home intercom or a baby monitor.
