HARD WATER MINERALS AND OTHER

CONTAMINANTS IN YOUR WATER

Most families in our area of MI notice these issues too.

“Installed neatly under my sink. The spout is very conveniently located, the water is crystal clear!! This is superior to getting bottled water from the grocery store – I highly recommend this system.” – Karen Nilsson, A 5-Star Google Review

“Jeff came out and tested the water. He explained what equipment I would need and answered all questions I had. NO PRESSURE sales, which is a huge plus for me. I hate pushy salespeople. After I scheduled the install. It was very quick and the installers were great. Asked questions to verify all was correct and did an excellent job of installing it. Highly recommend. – Steve Angus, A 5-Star Google Review

COMMON MI & IN WATER PROBLEMS

According to a report by CNN, more than 5,000 water treatment plants across the United States are in violation of the Water Quality Association standards and contributing to the water health crisis for multiple reasons: 

  • Failure to properly test the water
  • Failure to report contamination
  • Failure to treat water properly

With any health crisis, it’s important to know and understand the facts and fortunately, the facts are easy to find with a simple water test.

IF YOU SUSPECT OR ARE CONCERNED THAT YOU HAVE CONTAMINANTS IN YOUR WATER, HERE ARE THE NEXT STEPS TO TAKE IN GETTING YOUR WATER PURIFIED:

  1. Get your water tested. Contact us at Tri-County Water and we’ll test your water. Our basic test is free and we offer full 3rd party laboratory testing for non-basic contaminants.
  2. If we do find contaminants that exceed safe levels, we’ll alert you and let you know your options.
  3. We’ll help you interpret your results so you can make an educated decision about what to do next.

Been a customer for nearly 6 years, outstanding family-owned company. They always place the customer first, come up with unique solutions for unsolvable situations. Summit Township water is the hardest to treat and from my personal experience, Tri-County Water has always been the front runner tackling the situation. Always with outstanding results.

GenX

Mid-Michigan, West Michigan, & Northeast Indiana has been heavily impacted by the discharge of the chemical GenX (a man-made compound). While normal chlorine filters will not reduce this contaminant, a Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System from Tri-County Water can reduce this contaminant significantly – in many cases to a level that is safe to drink.

Lead

According to the New York Times: “The Environmental Protection Agency says streams tapped by water utilities serving a third of the population are not yet covered by clean-water laws that limit levels of toxic pollutants.”
Furthermore, lead is rarely treated by municipalities and is picked up in water during its journey to your home’s tap. Lead can easily be removed by a Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System from Tri-County Water.

Chromium 6

A new study by the Environmental Working Group reports that Mid-Michigan, West Michigan, & Northeast Indiana drinking water contains hexavalent chromium, a toxic metal that has been linked to cancer. While the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency does not require testing for the metal, the survey found that levels in the local area water in certain areas were pushing the levels proposed as a safety limit by authorities. This contaminant has been proven to cause cancer. A reverse osmosis drinking water system can help bring contaminants like Chromium 6 to a safe level.

Hardness Minerals

What it is – hard water contains calcium and magnesium minerals which bond with everything they touch leaving “limescale” in their wake.

Treatment – Our guaranteed water softener provides the best option for soft water on the market. It improves the water throughout your entire home while protecting your appliances and fixtures.

Iron

What it is – Iron can come in a couple different forms including dissolved and non-dissolved. Both of which can leave red/orange stains on your sinks, tubs, and toilets and can be extremely hard to remove. Iron can also cause bacteria to grow and let off an unpleasant smell.

Treatment – The EcoWater ECR 3502 is rated to remove up to 15 ppm of clear water iron. In most cases, our equipment can remove triple the iron compared to competitive brands. Should your water run red out of the faucet, an ETF AII9 Air Injection filter ahead of your water softener will usually fix the problem. In severe cases, a separate iron filter may be needed.

Chlorine

What it is – Chlorine is a chemical used by municipal & local water treatment plants to reduce harmful bacteria in the water supply. While this sounds good, chlorine and chloramines can cause a bacteria of their own to grow called trihalomethanes (TTHM) which is quite unsafe to drink or bathe in.

Treatment – The most efficient Chlorine reduction filter is Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) or Catalytic Carbon. Due to the high level of chlorine added to water by cities, you will really appreciate your water with chlorine reduction. See our Whole House Filtration page for more information.

Dirt & Sediment

What it is – dirt & sediment is just as it sounds. This is typically most common in well water or surface water that hasn’t gone through a treatment facility.

Treatment – Dirt and sediment are found in almost all water supplies and will decrease the efficiency and lifespan of your appliances. For example, sediment in a water heater can prevent the heat from transferring to the water in the tank once sediment has built up in the bottom. Our whole house filtration system can help with this problem.

Other Contaminants

What they are – common contaminants in our area can include nitrates, lead, arsenic, pharmaceuticals, and more. These are not included in the free water test, however, we do offer full laboratory testing at an affordable price.

Treatment – Protecting the water in your home is important, however ensuring the purity of the water you are putting in your body is even more crucial. Our Reverse Osmosis drinking water system will give you a peace of mind that your drinking water is healthy, and you are going to fall in love with this drinking water system that can provide up to 50 gallons per day of delicious water.

We have the worst water in all of Jackson county due to the... land being a former coal mine. I did not think my water could be filtered this well. My clothes used to be stiff from all the sulfur and now they are so soft. My house no longer smells like a rotten egg. My house was very complicated but they stuck to it and kept coming back to tweak the system. Could not write enough good things about this family run company.read more

Tri County Water on Wildwood in Jackson, MI has OUTSTANDING... service! Leave it to me and my husband to pull in just as they were closing up shop. As we began to pull out, Kyle swooped around in his truck and asked if there was anything he could do to help! He proceeded to get us our 3 jugs, we paid, and were on our way. He certainly didn't need to do that, but he did! Maintaining friendly, energetic, kind customer service during these crazy times can be tough, but Kyle made sure to go out of his way to make sure we got what we needed. The Hunt family THANKS YOU!!read more

My wife and I had a fantastic experience with Tri-county... water recently. We saw a "free water testing" sign and figured we would try it out as our well water is very hard. Our salesman Nate got us a really excellent price on a completely new system and now our water is perfect. No more problems and no more maintenance. We did initially have a problem with the installation as one of the plumbers didn't show, but I called Nate and he had it fixed in a couple of days. My wife and I are so happy with our water now.read more

I could not be more satisfied with my water softener from... Tri County Water. Jeff came to the house and laid out everything I needed to turn my well water into the best water I have had before. He and his team provide exceptional customer service with the fastest response times. If you’re in need of softer water, you won’t regret working with Tri County.read more

I had to have a water system softener and filter system... replaced and I did not look forward to the process or the cost. When Jeff called me on the phone and talked through the basics I was surprised how easy it would be. Then choosing the systems was a low pressure sale and the installers were simply fantastic. One day in and out and all the old equipment was gone. The follow up calls were a surprise and honestly, I can't think of a single thing they should do differently. Keep up the great work Jeff and team!read more
