Our Water Treatment Methods

Your home’s water fails the test—what then? Well, first, know you’re not alone. We have seen plenty of homes in Stevens or Ephrata with similar issues. You can rest easy knowing our plumbers know how to best combat your water quality issue. Our potential solutions include:

Water Softener Installation

If your home has an excess of heavy metals—like iron—we might recommend installing a water softener. Utilizing the power of ion channels, these systems pull contaminants out of your water. While most common in well-based water systems, they’re a great option in Ephrata and Stevens.

Soften Your Water

Water Filtration

If the issue is due to VOCs or solids, a water purification system may be the way to go. If you’re only concerned with having good drinking water, we can install a system under your main sink. Alternatively, a whole house water purification system can lead to improvements throughout your home. Reach out to us at (717) 335-2633 for a quote on water filtration installation in Ephrata.
