Common water contaminants in Mid-Michigan, West Michigan, & Northeast Indiana

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.
Chromium 6

A new study by the Environmental Working Group reports that local drinking water contains hexavalent chromium, a toxic metal that has been linked to cancer. While the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency does not require the testing for the metal, the survey found that levels in our local water were pushing the levels proposed as a safety limit by authorities. This contaminant has been proven to cause cancer. You can search your zip code to see the amount in your municipal water supply here: https://www.ewg.org/interactive-maps/2016-chromium6-lower-48.php#.WXYljtPyu-l

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.

Very quick. Everything works properly. Salesman was a... little pushy. “Payment Plan” was made out to seem like they are the ones who are in charge. When in reality you just get a loan through some 3rd party company. So once you get it, they can’t help you with it at all. Then the company they go through you can only do online payments and they charge you for you. If you can avoid having a “payment plan” or loan. Do that.read more

Our experience with Tri-County Water was highly... satisfactory. The sales representative Ben was extremely cordial and quickly evaluated our water with the old system and offered up solutions. The installers were awesome as well, and very knowledgeable about the Eco Water system that they were installing. They were very efficient and professional with the installation. If the new water softener system lasts as long as our old system we got a "Home Run" so to speak! A very positive experience with Tri County Water of Jackson. Thank you!read more

If you're in need of a new water softener, or any other... maintenance, you really don't need to look any further than Tri-County. If you're looking for professional and honest people to do with business with, this is the place.I didn't fully know what to expect when we moved into our new house, but TCW explained everything that our house needed, as well as other elements that weren't as necessary. I appreciated how the options were laid out to us, which made us feel comfortable in choosing the best fit for our family's needs.TCW was patient with our busy work schedules and found us a time that worked well. The installation took around an hour and the installer was just excellent to work with over the whole process.Overall, I am thrilled to have TCW as a part of our home and am looking forward to continued future business.Thanks, Dan!read more

UPDATE:Tri-County just left and did a wonderful job of... making everything right. My techs were professional, courteous and cleaned everything up when they left. My only reason for the 4 star rating is that the job wasn't done right the first time, and we had multiple issues. I WILL use them in the futureJOB: Install 1 whole house carbon water filter system. After hearing really good things about this company, I was looking forward to a positive experience. Sadly, it was anything but... First off, I hate people who can't stick to schedules, or communicate properly. I know things happen but at least show some courtesy and tell me you're running behind. They were 2.5 hours late, and I finally had to call the office to find out where they were. Once they arrived they didn't go over what they planned on doing, they just jumped right in. I was holding the back door for them to bring their stuff in and out when one of the guys brings my FOUR DAY OLD water softener up from the basement. He was shocked when I asked what the heck he was doing with it because he "thought" they were replacing the whole system. By the time I made it downstairs to follow up on what they were doing, they had the new filter system installed and had placed it in a position that my wife absolutely hated. The installers blamed the confusion on a poorly written work order. From my perspective, they should have covered what they were going to do with me from the beginning. After several calls, we were able to straighten things out and Lindsay did offer up some compensation for the poor service. I know that everyone has a bad day once in a while. However, this experience reinforced my low opinion of the typical Jackson Contractor. Would I use them again? At this point I don't know. My advice? Make darn sure you go over every detail with them BEFORE they start work and avoid the headaches I did.read more

I needed help with my well and water softener on a... Saturday. I didn't expect to hear back from anyone until Monday, but Jeff called about an hour later to see what he could help with. After determining that I was way out of his service area, Jeff walked me through a couple of troubleshooting issues to see if they could help. Jeff also offered to come out if I wasn't able to find someone locally. He also contacted me about a week later to make sure I was able to get my system fixed. This is customer service at its finest.read more
